ECU Chip Tuning

Vehicles these days largely consist of electronic components to operate. While the average car has around 30 ECU chip, luxury German cars will typically have around 100 ECU chips to keep the vehicle performing optimally. Just like regular car maintenance (and computers) these components need to be serviced to maintain good engine management.

Ignore any issues or warning signs that may come up and you’ll most likely have a much bigger problem (and bill) on your hands. However, a lot of mechanics are still do not have the equipment or training so cannot accommodate for ECU maintenance or repairs.

At GMW Perth, we are a forward thinking team, who understands that the cars of today and the future are going to run largely on electronic components. For us, that means on top of our regular mechanical training, that we have invested in research, education and the tools to be able to work on these components.

We offer an inclusive service for all makes and models of German Auto, while also having the training and experience to work on all brands of vehicles. Our Malaga based work shop is equipped with the most up to date equipment and technologies, so that we are able to take care of your car, not matter what the problem.

Frequently Asked Questions

ECU chip tuning is changing or modifying your vehicles computer to change it’s performance. Basically it is engine tuning where the computer in your engine can be modified to increase your fuel economy, torque, power or produce cleaner emissions.
That is dependent on your vehicle and what you plan to use it for. If you are putting a lot of miles on your car, then it may be advantageous to have an eco-tune that will increase your fuel economy and emissions. If you are looking at racing your car, then you might want to consider a performance tune to give your car an extra power boost. If you want to know if a tune is right for your car, contact our knowledgeable team today and we will be happy to discuss whether an ECU chip tune is right for your vehicle.

There are a few tell tale warning signs that there is an issue with one of your ECU chips. These include:

  • Check Engine light coming on or staying on after resetting
  • Problems with your car starting
  • Your engine turning on or off for no reason
  • Loss of spark
  • Water Damage to your ECU
  • Loss of fuel injection pulse or fuel pump
  • Overheating of ECU

If you notice any of these issues, contact us today to schedule a vehicle diagnostic test to prevent more serious issues from occurring.

As long as you take your vehicle in to a qualified mechanic who has the skills and training, like our team at GMW, then it is 100% safe. Taking your vehicle into someone who has little experience in ECU programming can lead to your board diagnostics being misdiagnosed. The would create more serious issues and more costly repair down the road.
