    Engine matters 2 - this controls ....., the using the engine control module???

    Hello!

    Description of Function and Operation Electronic Control Engine Control

    This controls fuel injection amounts, injection timing, the using the engine control module (ECM).

    To my thinking, the sentence should read as follows:

    This controls fuel injection amounts, injection timing, (by) using the engine control module (ECM).

    What is your opinion?

    Thank you.

    That's quite a muddle, if I may say so. If the first phrase is a section heading and I've guessed correctly what it's supposed to say, this might work:

    Electronic Engine Control Function and Operation

    The Electronic Engine Control (EEC) uses the engine control module (ECM) to control fuel injection amounts and injection timing.

    This controls fuel injection amounts and injection timing through the use of the engine control module (ECM).

    Well, it's one or the other. I don't know which. I'm not a mechanic.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
