GM MICRO-COMPUTER ENGINE CONTROL SYSTEM
The General Motors microprocessor based Computer Controlled Catalytic Converter (C-4) system used on 1980 California vehicles and nationwide in 1981 is described. The basic system function is to maintain engine exhaust air-fuel ratio control so that oxidation and reduction characteristics of three-way catalytic converters can be effectively utilized. Control strategies and components used in the Closed Loop Carburetor Control function are reviewed.
