Engine problems?

Hybrid problems included repairs to engine computers and emissions-control systems — faults that gasoline and diesel models did not have.

Honda and Toyota say some ’01 hybrids had faulty engine control computers [italics mine], which triggered “check engine” lights and caused other problems. Both say they told dealers to replace faulty computers, and that solved the problems [italics mine again].
To me, engine problems are mechanical problems, like a crankshaft or a piston or an injector or some other moving or rotating part going south. A quick or unaware reader will see "engine problems" and not deduce from the body of the article that the "engine problems" were not mechanical in nature, but rather software problems, easily corrected and with no real danger of the driver being left stranded out in the boonies. :roll:
