Automotive Repair Turbo  And The Basic Introduction To How A Turbo Works!

The exhaust gases from the engine pass through the turbine housing of the turbo via the turbine blades, this in turn begins to spin the turbine. On the front end of the turbo is a Compressor wheel. This is located in the compressor housing with a pipe which is fed from your air filter. As the shaft begins to spin, so does the compressor wheel. This begins to draw air in from the intake, compressing it into the compressor outlet. The outlet is then fed through the car’s intercooler and then on to the engines inlet ready for the engine cycle.

Automotive Repair Turbo Symptoms Of A Blown Turbo…

Before you start looking for an automotive repair turbo you should know the most common symptom would be excessive blue smoke; this is caused by the seals on the turbo shaft leaking oil into the exhaust side, or compression side of the turbo. For those of you wondering why it has an oil supply, it’s simply to lubricate the bearings on the turbo shaft.

Another symptom would be loss of power, this can be caused by a number of things, a split intake hose which would create a whistling noise (not to be confused with a whining noise), the waste gate stuck open which would cause the exhaust gas to rush straight down the exhaust manifold and not turn the turbine, therefore the compression side of the turbo is not making any boost pressure. Variable vanes sticking due to a build up of exhaust carbon in the variable vane chamber. Variable vanes operate by allowing exhaust gas to pass through them and spin the turbine, if these vanes are stuck in any way then they will not spin the turbine properly or in some cases not spin it at all, in most cases if you are experiencing loss of power the turbo will need to be taken apart.

 Automotive Repair And Recondition Turbos VS  New Turbos

Reconditioned or repaired turbos offer the same quality as new turbos the difference between a reconditioned turbo and a new turbo is the reconditioned turbo has been striped down and cleaned, then all of the moving parts replaced by new parts. The rest of the turbo parts such as the compressor housing and exhaust housing don’t normally need replaced as they rarely suffer from much wear, so when you get your reconditioned turbo it should look almost like a new turbo.

A new turbo is almost like a reconditioned turbo but the difference is the new turbo has nice new shiny housings and of course the new turbo will be twice the price of the reconditioned turbo, so your better of with a reconditioned turbo as it’s just as good as a new one.

Fuel Injection Problems

                     

 What is fuel – injection?

The advertisements on television talk about fuel – injection as if everyone knows exactly what the term means. But not everyone is a car mechanic even if they do recognize the term. So the first question is: What is fuel – injection? The second question is: Why should you care about keeping it running smoothly?

Obviously, by the name, you can tell a fuel – injection system handles getting fuel to the car engine. Despite being discussed as if it is a fairly new invention, it’s actually been in existence since the 1950s. The fuel – injection system was designed to address the need for fewer polluting emissions from cars and to supply fuel to the engine in a more efficient manner.

Going Modern

Fuel injection replaced the old-style carburetors and is combined with a catalytic converter where there are strict air quality standards. The catalytic converter changes dangerous emissions into harmless water vapor and carbon dioxide. But in order to accomplish this goal, the fuel must be supplied to the catalytic converter in the right mixture and amount.

Thus the fuel – injection system was born, and Mobile Car Care mechanics are thoroughly trained on both old and new styles. The fuel – injection system supplies the right air and fuel ratio to the engine. If a catalytic converter is on the car, the car emissions are rendered virtually harmless. But a catalytic converter is not required for the fuel – injection system to work properly.

There are two types of fuel – injection systems on the market now. The multipoint fuel – injection system has one fuel injector per cylinder. They are mounted on the intake manifold and use ignition voltage for operational power. There is a control module which contains a switch which turns the power on and off as the cylinders need fuel. Fuel is sprayed as needed to keep the engine running smoothly.

The second type of fuel – injection system is called a throttle body injection system. As the name suggest, fuel injector(s) are installed on the throttle body. The fuel is sprayed, mixes with the air, and then delivered to the cylinders by the intake manifold. This is a less efficient system and in areas where strict air emission control standards were put into place, the throttle body injection system was replaced by the multiport fuel – injection system during vehicle manufacturing.

Lifetime of Service

It is clear the fuel – injection – system plays an important role in the efficient operation of the vehicle. Most people are not qualified nor have the right diagnostic tools to test and maintain a fuel -injection system. Yet it is critical to keep your fuel – injection – systems working efficiently for the benefit of the engine and to meet air emission standards.

Maintenance of the fuel – injection system can prevent many problems from developing.

* Change the fuel filter periodically
* Clean fuel injectors
* Fuel flow testing
* Spray pattern testing

The Mobile Car Care vans are equipped with the necessary diagnostic equipment perform all necessary fuel – injection system maintenance operations. With some basic and regular maintenance, most fuel – injection systems last for the life of the vehicle.

The most important step you can take is to let a trained professional mechanic perform routine maintenance.

The bottom line is this: it costs a lot less to maintain your vehicle than to replace it.
