Here are 8 frequently asked questions and answers to help you understand the importance of this automobile component.
1. What does an Engine Computer do?
An Engine Computer, or Powertrain Control Module (PCM), is responsible for regulating the performance of your Chevrolet Malibu's engine. It monitors and controls many different aspects of engine function, including fuel delivery, ignition timing, and emissions.
2. Why is it important to use the correct engine computer?
Using the wrong engine computer can lead to decreased performance, poor fuel economy, and even damage to your Chevrolet Malibu's engine. The PCM is specifically calibrated for your vehicle's engine and components, so it is essential to use the correct one to ensure optimal performance..
3. Can you get any year computer for your Chevrolet Malibu?
Chevrolet installs a new engine computer in each car model every year. The computer is designed to take information from sensors that are unique to each year and model of Chevrolet Malibu. If you buy and install a computer for a different year, it may not work as well or may cause costly malfunctions. Luckily, engine computers for many years & models of Chevrolet Malibu are readily availble from Flagship One.
4. How will a new engine computer improve the performance of my Chevrolet Malibu?
If you install a new control unit in your Chevrolet Malibu, you can expect a variety of improvements. This can include better fuel delivery and ignition timing, resulting in higher gas efficiency. Additionally, a new Chevrolet Malibu PCM can help decrease emissions, making your vehicle compliant with environmental regulations.
5. What are some symptoms of a powertrain control module malfunction?
There are many symptoms of a faulty pcm, including poor fuel economy, the check engine light comes on, decreased performance, the engine stalls or misfires, rough idling, and increased emissions. If you experience any of these problems, it's likely that your engine computer needs to be replaced.
6. Is an ECU and PCM the same thing?
PCM (Powertrain Control Module) - The PCM manages both the engine and transmission. It ensures that both the engine and transmission are working correctly.
ECU (Engine Control Unit) / ECM (Engine Control Module) - The control unit manages the engine only. It oversees all of the sensors, actuators, fuel injection, and ignition associated with the engine.
7. What is a programmed ECM?
A programmed ECM is an engine computer that has been pre-loaded with the specific calibration for your Chevrolet Malibu. This can save you time and money, as you won't have to take your Chevrolet to a dealership or mechanic to have the computer flashed (a process of programming the computer to match your Chevrolet's engine). Flagship One offers pre-programmed engine control modules for a wide variety of Chevrolet vehicles, including some units that are plug&play.
8. Are the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and ECM related?
The VIN on your Malibu is related to the specific ECM that your car needs. Chevrolet will not release an engine computer without checking the VIN compatibility. The Engine Computers from Flagship One are all programmed to your Malibu's year and model, so you don't have to worry about finding the correct electronic control module. Simply enter your VIN when ordering, and we'll do the rest. We also offer PCM repair for select models.
