Computer controls, driveability and Computer Problems
Many people might be surprised just how many elements of their cars are now controlled by tiny microprocessor. Some of the main elements include:
- High-level digital outputs, which is responsible in many modern cars for firing spark plugs, opening and closing fuel injectors and turning the cooling fan on and off
- Digital-to-analog converters, which is a component that helps the engine control unit convert digital numbers into analog voltage
- Communication chips, which implement various communications standards use on modern vehicles
At Thurston County Transmission, our diagnostic professionals use only high-quality parts to get your car’s onboard computer system back up and running properly. Unlike some high-volume engine repair garages, we take pride in taking the time and getting the job done the right way for Olympia and Lacey auto engine repair customers.
Timing belt services
The timing belt is a key component of any vehicle’s engine and is responsible for keeping all the different aspects of the engine in sync with each other. Timing belts typically wear out every four years or around 60,000 miles. In some vehicles, the lifespan of a timing belt is higher at around every 100,000 miles. No matter what make or model you drive, it is important to have your timing belts serviced on a regular basis. Thurston County Transmission is experienced in providing timing belt services. Proper engine function relies on a reinforced rubber belt to keep the connection between the crankshaft and the camshaft in constant, timed motion. Without the timing belt, the engine’s pistons and valves would collide into each other, causing major damage. Some Olympia and Lacey auto engine repair on a squeaky belt is as easy as replacing the belt, though this may just be a symptom of a bigger issue. We’ll make sure you get an honest answer.
