Check Engine Light Repairs
Check Engine Light Repairs In Hendersonville, Tennessee
Mercedes Benz used mechanical fuel injection systems during World War II but first used an electronic fuel injection known as Air Flow Controlled Electronic Fuel Injection units, (AFC) in 1967. The Volkswagen type 3 station wagon followed suit the next year in 1968. All of the early fuel injection systems used all white wiring systems to prevent customers from attempting to work on the fuel injection themselves. It worked. Most customers and independent auto repair shops replaced the fuel injection systems with carburetor kits as soon as the fuel injection malfunctioned.
Good technicians could repair the fuel injection units without scan tools, trouble codes, check engine lights, or the internet to help them. Repairing these systems made us better technicians. We learned to repair just what the problem was and we didn’t have to rip the system out and put carburetors in because we couldn't figure out the systems. The US Government required that all cars and trucks sold in the United States have an Assembly Line Data Connector, (ALDL) in 1988. Every car manufacturer installed a connector but every system was different and most small shops could not afford all of the assorted connectors for all of the cars. In 1996 the regulations were changed and all cars were required to use a standardized plug for all cars to make it cheaper for independent auto repair shops to afford tools to read the systems. The new standard was called OBD2. Part of this system was that a “Check Engine” light be present in all cars sold in the united States to let clients and state testing facilities know when the computer recognized a fault which could cause the vehicle to malfunction.
