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 Alternative Automotive in Tulsa, OK 74112 today.
Alternative Automotive has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Tulsa 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 Alternative Automotive or call us at 918-832-7740 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 Alternative Automotive in Tulsa, OK 74112 today. At Alternative Automotive, 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 Alternative Automotive today.
I've been going to alternative automotive for 20 years. They have great service and operate with integrity!
Not a better mechanic anywhere. Period. And the best thing of all, Mike is as honest as a summer day is long. He will NEVER sell you a service or part that your vehicle genuinely doesn't need. He will even offer a cheaper idea for you if you're in a pinch to help. I own 5 cars and no one but Mike touches them. -And, I have sent many people to him and everyone of them will say the same as me.
Mike and his staff are top notch. They are professional, communicate the status of your vehicle, and are honest. I will be bringing my Mazda back to Mike and his crew from now on.
Love this crew! I wouldn?t take my car anywhere else. Very professional and diligent!
Have used them for the past four years. Honest, fast and good price.
Best experience! Explains everything even if I don?t understand. :-) Treats my car likes it was his wife?s!
Mike got me in quickly for a rattling noise, took time to explain the process to diagnose before I left my car for the day, called me by 2pm to let me know the car was fixed and took time again on the back end to explain the problem and the fix. All for an incredibly reasonable expense. This shop was efficient, courteous and highly knowledgeable. Everything you need when your sole source for getting around is broken. I strongly recommend them!
Mike and Karen are the best! We had a car that had been sitting a while that was going to be my son's first car so we had them check it out after my parents recommended them. They told us all the urgent needs and what could wait, and then fixed what was needed at a very reasonable price. Mike even spent 45 minutes showing my son and I everything about the car and how it works and tips a new driver needs to know. We learned so much! He is very knowledgeable about cars and is excited to educate others, always willing to explain why and answer my questions. Mike and Karen are also people of character who love the Lord and are quick to make things right if something seems like it isn't. We now trust them completely with all our vehicles and we are so thankful to have an honest and experienced mechanic to take care of us!
My mother had an issue with her 2009 Ford V8 Sport Trac jerking as it was driving on the highway. She took it to a dealership that wanted to replace the transmission for 6800 dollars. We heard about Mike at Alternative Automotive and took the vehicle to him. Based on his experience, he suspected right away that the truck did not need a new transmission, but merely a tune up! He tuned it up and even did a BG transmission service. Mike saved us thousands of dollars and for that we are grateful!! The truck runs great. Found a new mechanic to rely on with Alternative Automotive.
Mike is awesome! I took my car to him after having it with another mechanic for 9 weeks without getting it fixed. Mike had it working very quickly. I would highly recommend Alternative Automotive
The owners and mechanics at Alternative Automotive are very honest. I have no worries when I get repair work done or an oil change. I know they will always do a fantastic job and the cost will always be appropriate for the work done. The owner, Mike always explains what repair needs to be done, and I know it will be done in a timely manner. It is a great relief for me to be able to trust any work that is done on my vehicle. Thank you Alternative Automotive!
Great service every time.
Very good diagnostic and automotive service.
Really liked these folks. friendly, knowledgeable, and reasonably priced. I felt comfortable through the entire experience. Thanks Alternative
I am so happy that I found a reliable and professional auto repair shop in Tulsa. I was very pleased with the work done on my vehicle at Alternative Automotive. They are very honest and professional and the cost was lower than I would have paid at a dealership. I will definitely return for future jobs on our vehicles.
Karen and Mike are wonderful! Honest, thorough and quick service with kindness and smiles. My vehicle is running like it's brand new. With sincere gratitude and appreciation.
From the minute you walk into their shop, Mike and Karen will make sure you get the best treatment for both you and your car. They are very knowledgeable, and the work is second to none.
Came in to replace a door latch on an 02 Mustang. Mike quickly diagnosed that there was in issue with the hinge too, and replacing just the latch would not be a permanent fix. Excellent service, in and out in one day. Less expensive than a dealership too. Feels great knowing I now have a relationship with a great mechanic who can do anything I need to my Ford.
