The air spins up the exhaust turbine and increases boost on the compressor side. The tank pressurizes up to 175psi and has enough volume for two hard acceleration events.
For some vehicles, it’s normal to see as high as 16 volts for long periods at a time. For others, it’s normal to see as low as 13 volts. For some, a constant 13.6 volts is an indication of a problem.
Here are three main reasons why you should have a conversation with your customer to replace multiple parts simultaneously.
A turbocharger is a complex unit with precisely matched components.
Fuel delivery system components concentrate on the use of specific plastics and nylons to reduce conductivity.
When a stretch belt exceeds wear specifications, it’s no longer able to grip the pulleys and will start slipping.
Reducing emissions to acceptable levels is achieved through a four-stage process.
Serial data buses help to eliminate multiple sensors and wiring. One sensor can share information with multiple modules without having to connect directly to the multiple modules.
The secret to being able to capture and analyze secondary ignition waveforms is understanding what is happening in the coil and at the spark plug and how the scope measures and graphs the voltages and ignition event.
Approximately 75% of the contaminants trapped by the oil filter are combustion byproducts, like soot and sludge.
Pre-ignition is very damaging because of two dynamics inside the cylinder.
