Left side of Engine Compartment on 3.3/3.8L there is also ABS and others so make sure you get the right one. I believe the powertrain control module is near front by the battery.

I have a 1981 corvette that i think needs a schlatter valve...?.. my friend owns it and i am trying to sell it for him.. does anyone know about this part?


unfortunately vehicle owners refer to vehicle parts using names that they make up as a dolacky or thingabob. If you can explain where this valve is located maybe some can help.

    OPERATION

    When the term Electronic Control Module (ECM) is used in this guide it will refer to the engine control computer regardless that it may be a Vehicle Control Module (VCM), Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Engine Control Module (ECM).
    The Electronic Control Module (ECM) is required to maintain the exhaust emissions at acceptable levels. The module is a small, solid state computer which receives signals from many sources and sensors; it uses these data to make judgments about operating conditions and then control output signals to the fuel and emission systems to match the current requirements.
    Engines coupled to electronically controlled transmissions employ a Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Vehicle Control Module (VCM) to oversee both engine and transmission operation. The integrated functions of engine and transmission control allow accurate gear selection and improved fuel economy.
    In the event of an ECM failure, the system will default to a pre-programmed set of values. These are compromise values which allow the engine to operate, although at a reduced efficiency. This is variously known as the default, limp-in or back-up mode. Driveability is almost always affected when the ECM enters this mode.


    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

    See Figures 1 and 2

    Fig. Fig. 1: ECM mounting scheme-except 1996 models


    0900c152800a7f97.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

    Fig. Fig. 2: ECM mounting scheme-1996 models
    The ECM is located in the passenger side footwell in the kick panel up to 1996. In 1996, the ECM is located in the engine compartment next to the battery.

    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Disengage the connectors from the ECM.
    3. Remove the spring retainer off and over the rail of the ECM on vehicles except 1996.
    4. Slide the ECM out of the bracket at an angle.
    5. Remove the ECM.

    To install:
    1. Install the ECM into the bracket.
    2. Install the spring retainer (except 1996) and plug in the electrical connectors.
    3. Connect the negative battery cable.

    Don't know where the injector circuit is located


    The injector circuits include the Engine Control Module (ECM), the ECM relay, the injectors (either 4 or 6 of them depending on which engine your vehicle is equipped with) and all of the wiring, switches, and fuses that are related to these circuits including the ignition switch.

    So, to put it simply, the injector circuit is located in the dash as well as all over the engine compartment.
