The SAE Society of Automotive Engineers.. has created a common (accepted) terminology that applies to all manufactures... Automobile parts to avoid confusion when communicating, BUT most people have no clue, of the SAE so you will hear many terms for the same component. Example they term the Computers that regulate engine management, fuel maps and ignition timing, and other minor functions. PCMs but here few other "names" ECU, EEC, PEM..on and on.
