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 The Gear Guy in Spring Branch, TX 78070 today.
The Gear Guy has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Spring Branch 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 The Gear Guy or call us at 830-885-4360 to schedule an appointment!

At The Gear Guy, 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 The Gear Guy today.

Can't say enough good about these folks. Class Acts!
I am delighted with the service I received from Gear Guy. I am a 74-year-old disabled lady with no outside help. I made an appointment for a diagnosis for a starter problem with my car. I was told that they would charge a $50 fee for diagnosing the problem and was particularly pleased that I they would try to repair it while I waited. I arrived at 8:30 a.m. and drove out at 11:30 a.m. They are kind, honest and reasonable, and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone with automobile issues.

Gear guy offers reasonable prices and only does repairs on what needs to be replaced. Mechanics are honest and knowledgeable and answer any questions or concerns. Will reccomend family and friends to this location. They were able to get my car back on the road within a day. Highly recommend you make an appointment as they are very busy.
Amazing owners, friendly faces. You get high quality work for decent prices. Never had a problem. Took my truck, which had a lot of different problems, and fixed her up good after I messed up some wiring. Let me know every step of the process and what was suggested. Highly suggest this local business!
