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 McClure's Garage & Towing in Gurnee, IL 60031 today.
McClure's Garage & Towing has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Gurnee 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 McClure's Garage & Towing or call us at 847-662-1050 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 McClure's Garage & Towing in Gurnee, IL 60031 today. At McClure's Garage & Towing, 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 McClure's Garage & Towing today.
The nicest guys! I've took my car due to a flat tire and was very pleased with promptness and very reasonable with pricing. Recently I took it in due to low pressure in one of my tires and they checked all of my tires and filled them up with air. Great customer service! I always refer people to McClures now! Thanks guys!
Honest and Reliable
Haven't ever purchased tires before and really dreaded doing so. Told Matt, at McClure's, I needed help. He gave me 2 quotes, high and low end. I, then, did a lot of research locally, shopped Costco, also tried purchasing thru Amazon, and having someplace local install tires. McClure's was the best quote. I called Matt back on Friday, set appointment for 9am Monday. My son met me at McClure's at 9am. Matt said about an hour, son & I went out for breakfast, Matt called at 10:07, car was ready for pick up. Cost was below what was quoted. McClure's made what I expected to be a nightmare experience a very comfortable experience. They will be my go to garage for all car needs. Nice feeling to know I've found trustworthy people.
