Cole & Miller Automotives now do remapping. All vehicle's manufactured since 1999 are controlled by an onboard computer, which is known as the Engine Control Unit (ECU). The ECU controls a multitude of different engine functions such as ignition timing, fuelling and turbo boost pressure. Within this computer a file stores the manufacturers settings that have been fixed to allow for build tolerances into their engines and to comply with emission targets, cope with sub-standard fuels found in some countries, operate in areas with extreme environments and allow for some owners irregular service standards and intervals. We can access these settings usually via a 16 pin port inside the vehicle and adjust them to give you a more tailored map. This can give you gains of up to 35% in power and torque and 20% better fuel economy. Please visit our website remapping page for more details.
We are now fully operational here at Cole And Miller, we have ramped up our staff levels and are currently taking on all work. We are taking precautions to ensure our staff and customers stay safe so our reception is restricted to one in one out until further notice. We are also still closed on Saturdays to enable us to keep on top of hygiene and to implement procedures and training for the road ahead. Sorry for this inconvenience this may cause. Stay safe everyone.
Due to the impact on the environment, the old R134a refrigerant gas is now being replaced by the new R1234yf gas on all new cars. The process for servicing your a/c system is the same as the old gas, but it needs to be charged using a new service station. Due to demand at the end of last year we have decided to purchase the new machine in able to offer our customers an on going complete service. These two gasses are not compatible so vehicles with the old gas still have to be serviced using the old service station. The price of this new gas is significantly higher than the old gas at the moment but over time this will level out. For more info on which gas your vehicle has or for any air conditioning queries please don't hesitate to give us a call.
