How long does an ECU reflash take?
Most reflashing methods require the use of the four pins in the DLC that are open to the manufacturer. Some reflash sessions can last more than 45 minutes. If the battery voltage drops below a set voltage, the reflashing process will stop and possibly damage the module.

Does a used PCM need to be reprogrammed?
PCM Reprogramming may be required to resolve a hot or cold starting issue, idle roughness, stalling, or an emissions failure. Reprogramming is often used to modify the operation of emission functions so they have less of an effect on drivability.
