Today, car manufacturers include at least one computer in motor vehicles. This computer's main function is to monitor and adjust engine and transmission operations. The computer receives input information from different sensors. The computer controls spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors so as to get you the best possible car performance. Failure of the car computer will greatly affect the things it controls. To get the most out of your car's computer, have it evaluated regularly for updates and proper operation. If it is already failing, have it repaired or replaced. To have your car's computer handled by experts, visit Darrell's Firestone in Farmington, MI 48336 today.
Darrell's Firestone has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Farmington area. The primary reason to reflash a computer (which basically means updating or reinstalling its software) is that an update has been issued by the manufacturer. It's a very simple procedure, and there may be minor updates that the car hasn't had. The manufacturer may have tweaked the transmission-shifting algorithm or some other parameters that are not crucial but may bring slight improvements to drivability, mileage or emissions. Since auto manufacturers are coming out with automobile updates every day, there may be a reprogram available for your vehicle. Stop by Darrell's Firestone or call us at 248-477-9090 to schedule an appointment!

Drivability is the degree of smoothness and steadiness of your car's acceleration. Most modern cars are fitted with on-board computers that continuously check the readings from various sensors. In case of drivability problems, you will receive a warning message on your car's dashboard. To have your car diagnosed for drivability issues, visit Darrell's Firestone in Farmington, MI 48336 today. At Darrell's Firestone, we have the necessary tools, training, and technology to diagnose and address your car's drivability issues.
Basically, an engine control system is an on-board computer in your car. Like all computers, the engine controls are composed of hardware and software. Automotive engine control systems are responsible for regulating exhaust emissions, and providing increased fuel economy. To get the best out of your car's incredibly powerful technology, make sure engine controls are working properly. To check if your car's engine controls are working properly, call Darrell's Firestone today.
What People Say About Us
I was having a noise for over a year and the were able to fix the problem when know one else was able to tell me what was wrong. I also like that they do a full inspection and let you if there are any other problems.
Very good to work with and very professional.
I took my vehicle to another shop last year (name starts with Mr and is on Grand River) to have my exhaust repaired. Basically they didn’t do it correctly and over charged me for the work. So a year later, I took my vehicle to Darrell’s. The technician took a look and said it was not welded correctly, and they could repair the welds and get me back on the road for a small fee. I should have taken my vehicle to Darrell’s first. Lesson learned
I went to Darrell's to find out why my car had a rubber odor and why my car had a pulling feeling when I would drive sometimes. They diagnosed my van with a plugged catalytic converter. I came to find out what was wrong with van and I found out it's close to a thousand dollars to get it fixed. I actually went on google myself to see prices and match what he said and the signs of a bad catalytic converter matched what he told me. I would say my first visit there went ok. I hear horror stories all the time about Auto shops. So I always do my research and look up reviews before I take my vehicle to anyone. I am a middle aged woman of color so I always look at rating on businesses first. So yesterday went ok at Darrell's Auto. Front desk was welcoming and there was also a couple other older ladies in lobby. It made me feel more comfortable.
Jason and brian are just a couple of guys that do what they say will do and they deliver! It was super easy and painless and will definitely be back!
Chris and Jason were great! Very helpful, polite, professional, friendly, and honest. Explained things very well and made me feel comfortable. Great communication, timely service. Definitely my place to go from now on!
