Drilled, Slotted & Vented Brake Rotors - What's Best?
 
04:59
When replacing your brake rotors, you may opt to upgrade to drilled, slotted, or vented rotors. Which brake rotor is best? What brake rotors will perform better? What are the best options for performance brakes? Ultimately, vented disc are great for heat rejection. Slotted rotors can aid in moving debris away from the rotor, and potentially adding a biting surface for the pad to contact. Drilled rotors aren't used in professional racing due to the stress failures they tend to have.

Two-Stroke Opposed-Piston Diesel Engine By Achates Power EE Shirts! - http://bit.ly/2BHsiuo Recommended Books & Car Products - http://amzn.to/2BrekJm Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 The Achates Power opposed-piston engine is packed full of unique technology. The supercharged, turbocharged, diesel 3 cylinder makes use of six pistons, two of which operate in each cylinder. It’s a two-stroke design, meaning every time the pistons come together a power stroke occurs, forcing both pistons away from one another and rotating their respective crankshafts. The two crankshafts are geared together to a common output shaft, which powers the vehicle. Research has shown two-stroke opposed piston engines to be wildly efficient. 3 cylinder designs are the most efficient, and it’s possible to achieve brake thermal efficiencies as high as 55%, a massive improvement for road car engines. The engine in this video is a 2.7L 3-cylinder producing 270 HP and 480 lb-ft of torque.

Horsepower vs Torque - A Simple Explanation
 
07:24
What's The Difference Between Horsepower & Torque? Why Is Peak Acceleration At Peak Power? https://youtu.be/cb6rIZfCuHI Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 Awesome Car Products: https://www.amazon.com/shop/engineeringexplained Which is better, horsepower or torque? Two words that are often stated in the car community, but often misunderstood. This video seeks to clarify the difference between the two, without silly analogies like "horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take it with you" (which, by the way, is highly inaccurate). Torque is a force acting at a radius, while horsepower simply incorporates time into the equation. This video will discuss the differences, how each applies to internal combustion engines, how they relate, what peak torque and peak horsepower actually mean, and how to analyze torque and horsepower curves. Finally, what's more important for acceleration, a car with lots of power, or lots of torque? Let's get technical. With the context of an engine: Power = Torque x Angular Velocity. In imperial units, this translates to Horsepower = Torque x RPM / 5252. Engineering Explained is a participant in the Amazon Influencer Program. Don't forget to check out my other pages below!

What Is Powder Coating? New Wheels For The S2000!

How To Powder Coat Your Car Wheels Honda S2000 Playlist - https://goo.gl/mvZqpi Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 Link's To Aaron Gallinger's Work: Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/expressphoenix/ Website - http://www.phoenixrimrepair.com/ Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/wheelrepairphoenix The powder is a blend of polymers, pigments, and other ingredients which are mixed in a hopper. The hopper has a fluidizing plate at the bottom which flows air up through the powder, keeping it in a liquid like state for application. Aaron is using his own self-made fluidizing hopper.  Now looking at powder coating gun, on the front of it is a corona ring, which is attached to ground and this captures any overcharged powder particles so that they don’t cause any disruptions on the wheel. Not every powder coating gun has a corona ring. On the front of the gun you can see the x-pattern tip for spraying powder. Once removed, you can see the electrode which charges the powder, and then a white plastic sleeve around it which protects the powder gun from getting any cured powder inside of it. This electrode tip operates up to 80,000 volts. This high voltage ionizes the air surrounding it, meaning the surrounding air particles don’t have a matching number of protons and electrons; in other words it creates a cloud or field around it with a charge. There are different guns available, some with the ability to provide negatively charged particles, and some provide positively charged particles. With Aaron’s powder gun, the powder is then forced through the ionized field using air pressure, and the powder picks up a charge as it passes though. The wheel, in this scenario, is grounded. As the charged powder particles move through the air, they head to the nearest ground, which in this case is the wheel, which the powder then sticks to.

5 Reasons Pushrod Engines Still Exist
 
04:27
Why Chevy And Dodge Are Still Making Pushrod V8 Engines. EE Shirts! - http://bit.ly/2BHsiuo Recommended Books & Car Products - http://amzn.to/2BrekJm Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 Pushrod engines typically use two valves per cylinder, and as a result this engine style is often mocked when used in modern vehicles. Fewer, larger valves results in more reciprocating mass which can lead to valve float, and less airflow at high RPM from the reduced area of the valve openings versus four valves. So why are companies like Dodge still making Hemi engines, and Chevy still making LS engines, both of which are two-valve pushrod setups? Well, simply put, pushrod (OHV) engines have quite a few advantages over their DOHC counterparts. Whether it's the size and compactness of the engine, the simplicity, or the cost, there are real performance benefits to using a two-valve, single cam V engine. As the saying goes, if it ain't broke...

The Differences Between Inline Four & Boxer Four Engines

We have a 3D printed EJ20 Subaru boxer engine, as well as a 22RE Toyota inline-four engine. We’ll start fairly basic and work our way through several different topics for each layout, including the four strokes, the firing interval and order, the vibrations of each layout, the packaging differences, the cylinder head differences, and finally a bit about the sound. Looking at either layout, they’re both based on the same four strokes. Intake, compression, power, and exhaust. Both engines fire one cylinder for every 180 degrees of crankshaft rotation, but they have slightly different firing orders. On each engine, we can see cylinders one, two, three, and four. For the boxer engine, the firing interval is one, three, two, four, while on the straight four it’s one, three, four, two, so the order of the last two cylinders firing is switched. On the boxer engine, you’ll notice the pairs of pistons move in and out together. This means that the primary forces when the piston reaches the top of the cylinder, as well as when they reach the bottom of the cylinder, are canceled out. On the inline four cylinder engine, it’s the same story, the primary forces cancel out as the pairs of pistons reach the top and bottom at the same time. When we get into secondary forces, however, the engines begin to differ. Secondary forces are created due to the piston traveling faster at the top half of the piston than at the bottom half, something I’ll include a link to in the description for a video that breaks it down in great detail. What you need to know though, is that when the piston reaches the very top of the cylinder, or the very bottom, the secondary force points up or out from the piston. Now with the boxer engine, since the pistons point opposite each other, these forces are balanced out, resulting in a very smooth running engine. For the inline four, all of the forces point in the same direction, and thus do not cancel each other out, causing the engine to vibrate unless balancing shafts are used. The boxer engine isn’t perfect, however, because the pistons do not perfectly align with each other, it creates a rocking moment which makes the engine want to rotate back and forth along the vertical axis. What’s fascinating, however, is that if you add two cylinders to either of these designs, whether it’s a boxer six or an inline six, you can perfectly eliminate all first and second order forces and moments. You might think the boxer six would have a rocking motion from the cylinder banks of three, but each bank of three cylinders cancels out the rocking motion of the other, unlike in a V6 configuration. The other biggest advantage of the boxer engine is the low profile, which keeps the center of gravity low and thus reduces the amount of load transfer you have in the car during braking, cornering, or accelerating, which improves grip. With a lower center of gravity, you can also reduce body roll and choose to use softer springs. Additionally, in the event of a collision, it’s easier to position the engine so that it goes underneath the passenger compartment, rather than into the passenger compartment, for improved safety. That’s not to say the inline four doesn’t have it’s own size advantages. Generally it’s a bit more compact, with only one cylinder head, and it’s not quite as wide as the boxer engine. This leaves more room for suspension geometry, and can also allow for a better steering angle, since the tires won’t have as much of an interference at full lock.

What Does An Oil Catch Can Do? What Is An Oil Catch Can? Purchase An Oil Catch Can - http://amzn.to/299JHKX Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 Should you use an oil catch can? During combustion, a small amount of the combustion gases pass the pistons into the crankcase, this is referred to as blowby. This air isn't super clean, and it mixes with the oil in the camber. The positive pressure in the crankcase needs to be vented, which is where the PCV valve comes in. This allows the air, and oil mist, to escape the crankcase, and is usually rerouted back to the intake. This oil can gunk up your intake system, including forming deposits on the intake valves and piston heads. The only downside is that you will have to drain the oil catch can occasionally. Using the system can help prevent carbon deposits, gunk, and reduce the likelihood of knock and pre-ignition by removing oil contaminants introduced in the intake.

How To Completely Lift A Car On All Four Jack Stands

How To Completely Lift Your Car Off The Ground (All Four Wheels) 2-Ton Jack (Low Profile) - http://amzn.to/2fv0zOK Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 Tools Used: 2-Ton Jack (Low Profile) - http://amzn.to/2fv0zOK Jack Stands (2 Ton) - http://amzn.to/2fS7qmi Wheel Chocks - http://amzn.to/2g7GEFQ Related Videos: Honda S2000 Playlist - https://goo.gl/FflSr1 1. To start, make sure the car is on level ground. 2. Apply the parking brake, and place wheel chocks to ensure the car doesn’t roll. Block the rear wheels when lifting the front, and block the front wheels when lifting the rear. 3. Next you’ll need to locate the jacking points; some cars will have one at the front and one in the back. If they don’t, nearly all cars will have jacking points behind each of the front wheels, and in front of each of the rear wheels. You can refer to your owners manual to locate the jacking points. 4. First we’re going to lift the front of the car onto jack stands. If you have a front jacking point, use this, if not you can use the rear jacking points, and slide a jack stand under each side of the front of the car once it’s high enough. This will require jacking both sides of the car, to get both front jack stands underneath. Place jack stands underneath each of the jacking points on the sides up front, and lower the car down onto the jack stands. Remember, you may not want to jack the car to the full desired height; I will be starting at the lowest jack setting because I still need to be able to access the rear jacking point, and I also don’t want to have the jack stands tip over. 5. Now bring the floor jack to the rear of the car, and lift it via the rear jacking point. In this case we’re lifting by the rear differential; often times you can find a tow hook, which can also serve as a jacking point. It’s a good idea to throw a shop rag on top of the jack to ensure that you don’t scratch up the differential casing. 6. Lift up the rear of the car, place the jack stands underneath, and lower the car down onto them. Ideally you want all of the jack stands at the same height, so that the car is level. 7. If you need to raise the vehicle further, do so by incrementally lifting the front and rear to your desired lift height. You simply want to be careful to ensure that the car doesn’t cause the jack stands to tip over. 8. Once you’ve got the car level and all the jack stands adjusted appropriately, give the car a bit of a shake to make sure it’s safe to get underneath. Since I’m paranoid and also enjoy living, I like to place wood blocks underneath each of the wheels as an extra precaution. 9. Now this obviously isn’t necessary if you plan on removing the wheels, and in that case you typically will want to slightly loosen the lug nuts before lifting the vehicle, unless you have an impact wrench available to use.

How Turbocharger Wastegates Work - Internal Vs External
 
03:22
How do turbochargers wastegates work? What is the difference between internal and external wastegates? Is an external wastegate better than internal? What are the advantages of internal vs external wastegates? Why are wastegates needed in turbocharger applications? Wastegates are essentially bypass valves for exhaust gases to reroute around the exhaust turbine in the event that a peak desired boost is reached to limit the amount of boost an engine creates. The wastegate can be internal to the turbocharger housing, or it can be external. Internal turbos are great for OEM applications, but external wastegates allow for more flexibility with the overall design, and can result in a more productive turbocharger as they can route the exhaust gases further away from the turbo housing.

How V8 Engines Work - A Simple Explanation
 
05:23
What Is A V8 Engine? Working 3D Printed Chevy LS V8 Engine EE Shirts! - http://bit.ly/2BHsiuo Recommended Books & Car Products - http://amzn.to/2BrekJm Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 3D Printed LS3 Camaro V8 Engine Model: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1911808 V8 engines operates under the same basic principles as any other gasoline four-stroke engine. First the piston pulls in air and fuel as it moves downward, then it compresses that air and fuel as the piston moves upward. A spark plug fires, igniting the air/fuel mixture and forcing the piston downward. Finally the piston pushes out the exhaust gases on its way back up, before for the cycle repeats itself. In a V8 engine, this cycle is happening in 8 different cylinders, at different times. Instead of multiple cylinders firing at the same time, you want them to be spread out so that power delivery is smooth. For this Chevy V8, the firing or is 1, 8, 7, 2, 6, 5, 4, 3. With 8 cylinders, there is a cylinder firing for every 90 degrees of the crankshaft rotating, which means at any point in time, there are two cylinders on the power stroke. With regards to the valvetrain, the intake air comes from the top of the engine, and into the sides of the cylinder head. The exhaust flows to the sides of the engine, exiting the exhaust valves from the cylinder head. In this LS3 model, there is a single intake valve and a single exhaust valve, though it’s also common to see engines with two intake valves and two exhaust valves. The larger valve is the intake valve, and the smaller valve is the exhaust valve. The pushrod valvetrain gets its name from the metal pushrods which activate the rocker arms which open up the valves. The camshaft, located in the center of the V, has lobes on it which push the push rods up, opening the appropriate valves. For a full explanation of V8 engines, check out the video!

Watch An Off Road Truck Suspension While Moving! 5 Things You Shouldn't Do In A 4X4 - https://youtu.be/4-Wy5ENm_lM Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 This video provides a visual understanding of what's happening under your car while you drive. What we’re looking at, starting with the right we have the tire, wheel, and brake caliper. Moving left you can see the spring and damper. Towards the bottom is what Ram calls the “Articulink, an additional linkage in the lower control arm which allows for greater articulation of the front axle. Above the axle you can see the track bar or Panhard rod. You want to allow up and down motion of the suspension, but prevent lateral and longitudinal motion. The track bar is used to restrict side to side movement. Above the track bar you can see the drag link. This is part of the steering linkage and is used to rotate the right wheel, which is then linked by a cross-car-tie-rod to rotate the left wheel. Finally, we have the jounce bumper or ‘bump stop’, which is used to prevent contact between the axle and the frame when suspension travel is excessive due to shock impacts. 2015 RAM Power Wagon Review - https://youtu.be/Y3pAdIN6VhY Don't forget to check out my other pages below!

What's the difference between wet sump and dry sump oil systems? How Oil Systems Work - https://youtu.be/W80ne2i6uxQ - Sponsored By Pennzoil Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 What's the difference between wet and dry sump oil systems? Wet sump systems tend to have significantly larger pans, with a single oil pump. Dry sump systems have shallower oil pans, with a separate reservoir and two (or more) oil pumps. By relocating the oil reservoir, there are several distinct advantages to a dry sump system: lower CG by using a shallower oil pan, flexible oil capacity - which can lead to improved cooling, and the ability to sustain high g corners without the lubrication system losing oil or pressure.

Read this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Locking_differential Here's a quote from the above article: "An open (or unlocked) differential always provides the same torque (rotational force) to each of the two wheels, on that axle. So although the wheels can rotate at different speeds, they apply the same rotational force, even if one is entirely stationary, and the other spinning. (Equal torque, unequal rotational speed)."

The Engineering Behind Formula E - How It Works
 
07:07
The Engineering Behind Formula E - How It Works. How does a Formula E car work? We’ll be breaking down the science and strategy behind the battery, the motor, the transmission, the tires, the aerodynamics, the suspension, the brakes and regen, the cooling system, and of course the very unique aspect of the sport of having two cars per driver, swapped mid race. The 170 kW (approximately 230 HP) electric motor used in season 1 of Formula E was developed originally for the McLaren P1 supercar, and at its development it had the greatest power density of any automotive electric motor in the world, with 8 kW per kg. The regulations are now open, so teams can use more than one motor if they’d like, and develop the motors themselves. While the power output can never exceed 170 kW during a race, you can alter the efficiency of the motor, meaning you’ll be able to run flat out longer than other teams if your motor is more efficient. With the weight of the car, including the driver, at just 900 kg (or under 2000 lbs), the cars can hit 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds.

Water Methanol Injection - More Boost!
 
04:29
How water methanol injection works. Water methanol injection is used typically on high powered vehicles to assist with reducing the likelihood of knock, and thus allowing for higher compression ratios, more timing advance, and higher boost. Typically mixes are 50/50, with both water and methanol playing important but different roles to help aid in producing more power. Ultimately, the power comes from tuning as running water/meth essentially raises the octane level of the fuel used. There are production cars which have used this in the past.

Before getting started, the first thing you want to do is make sure your temperature control is on maximum heat. For modern cars this is often an electronic control, so you may need to run the car or at least turn the ignition on beforehand to make sure the heater core is opened up. This will ensure that you replace all of the coolant in your car. Before working on the car in any way, it’s critical that the engine and radiator have completely cooled down - you’ll often see a warning for this on the radiator cap. This video will walk through the process of replacing the fluid.

4 Reasons Why The Rotary Engine Is Dead
 
05:13
4 Reasons Why The Rotary Engine Is Dead. The Wankel engine was last seen in a production car in the Mazda RX-8, and currently there are no rotary engines in production. Mazda may bring it back in the RX Vision, however there are many disadvantages to the rotary engine which has kept it from being successful. Rotary engines have a low thermal efficiency as a result of a long combustion chamber and unburnt fuel making it to the exhaust. They also have problems with rotor sealing as a result of uneven temperatures in the combustion chamber since combustion only occurs in one portion of the engine. Oil consumption is also a problem, as oil is injected to add lubrication and help keep the rotor sealed. Finally, emissions are poor and fuel economy is terrible, and ultimately this is the cause of it’s death.

How To Change & Inspect Spark Plugs
 
03:40
How To Change & Inspect Spark Plugs. How to change spark plugs in an inline four cylinder engine. Changing plugs in a 1999 Acura Integra is a fairly simple job, however there are some tips along the way worth understanding. There’s several things you’ll want to look for while inspecting spark plugs. The electrode may be worn out, you may often see it rounded rather than flat. You want to check the plug gap, using a simple tool. For my car the recommended gap is 1.1 mm, you can check your owners manual for this information. You want to look for oil fouling or carbon deposits around the spark plug tip. It’s also a good idea to inspect the gasket where the plug seals with the head, and make sure the electrode insulator is not cracked. It’s important to replace the plugs with what the manufacturer recommends. NGK recommends not using any anti-seize compounds on the plugs, as the lubricant may cause the installer to over torque the plug. The NGK plugs have a zinc shell plating that is designed to prevent seizure to the cylinder head, as well as prevent corrosion. Often plugs with a shiny appearance have a special coating, thus not requiring the use of anti-seize. Cheaper plugs with a darkened or dull appearance typically will not have a special plating, and in this case it is recommended to use anti-seize.

In order to make power efficiently, air temperatures need to be cool before entering the engine. Turbochargers compress air, and doing so increases the air's temperature, decreasing density. That's where intercoolers come in, which use ambient air to reduce the temperature of the air used for combustion. There are two main styles of intercoolers, air-to-air and air-to-water. Both are effective, but they each have their own distinct advantages with regards to packaging, efficiency, turbo lag, throttle response, and of course cost.

Can A Tire Have High Grip And Low Rolling Resistance?
 
06:25
Can a tire have high grip and a low rolling resistance? I talk with Michelin at the Shell Eco-marathon Americas to find out! When it comes to designing for efficiency, there are five major forces which a vehicle needs to overcome: aerodynamics, internal friction, gravity, inertia, and finally, rolling resistance. Rolling resistance is the energy consumed by a tire as it travels over a specific distance. Energy is lost as heat when the tire deforms on the road, creating the contact patch, and then returns to its original state as the tire continues to rotate. How much energy is lost is a result of the tire’s hysteresis. The goal is to reduce rolling resistance while still maintaining grip. Silica compounds, first invented by Michelin, have low energy losses in the low frequency range, meaning low rolling resistance, but high energy losses in the high frequency range, meaning they have high grip. As a result, it truly is possible to have tires which exhibit low rolling resistance and yet all the while high levels of grip. Michelin is one of many partners that plays an important role in the Shell Eco-marathon, dedicating a manufacturing plant for two days per year just for making the ultra-low rolling resistance tires used by the teams. The Shell Eco-Marathon is a competition where students around the globe compete to design, build, and test vehicles with the goal of creating a vehicle that goes the furthest distance using as little energy as possible.

How The Atkinson Cycle Works - Car Engines
 
06:44
How does a hybrid car engine work? The modern Atkinson cycle is used by cars such as the Toyota Prius, Ford C-max and Fusion Hybrids, Lexus CT200h, and Mazda SkyActive engines. The basic difference between the Atkinson cycle and the Otto cycle, is that during the compression stroke, the intake valve is left open for a slight duration, effectively decreasing the compression stroke. This in turn means the expansion ratio is greater than the compression ratio, and results in a greater efficiency of the engine.

The first thing you want to do is make sure the car is on level ground, and raise it up onto jack stands ensuring that it is still level. I had an additional video on how this is done if you are curious. It is important that the car is level so that you add the appropriate amount of oil to the transmission housing. 2. With a drain pan located underneath, you’ll want to locate and remove the oil filler plug. This is the plug on top, not to be confused with the bottom plug, which is the drain plug. Removing the fill plug will allow you to check the cleanliness of the oil, as well as the level. 3. As you can see, with the old oil on the left and the new oil on the right, the old oil is clearly dirty and in need of replacement. Our next step is to remove the drain plug and drain the transmission fluid. 4. With the fluid drained, reinstall the drain plug, making sure to use a new 14 mm washer, and use a torque wrench to tighten the bolt to 29 lb-ft. Always be careful not to over-tighten, as you could damage the threads. 5. Next, begin refilling the transmission fluid. To do this, I’m using genuine Honda manual transmission fluid, as well as a simple transfer pump. I’ll include a link to this tool in the video description. 6. Pump in the transmission fluid until you have some start to spill out from the filler hole. This ensures that your transmission fluid is at the correct height, and you’ve added the correct amount. 7. Re-install the oil filler plug with a new 20 mm washer, which can be purchased from Honda for about sixty cents. Use a torque wrench to tighten this bolt to 33 lb-ft. 8. With the fluid in place and both bolts torque to spec, simply wipe up any excess oil that remains on the transmission case, and you’re all done!

Stop Saying Car Exhausts Need Back Pressure

Why Car Engines Don't Need Back Pressure + Exhaust Scavenging Awesome Car Products: https://www.amazon.com/shop/engineeringexplained Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 Do cars need back pressure? How should you size an exhaust? What exhaust diameter is too large, or too small? What is exhaust scavenging? What is wave scavenging? Why is exhaust velocity important? Cars don't need back pressure. More specifically, internal combustion engines do not benefit from back pressure in the exhaust. Back pressure is a pressure in the opposite direction to the exhaust's flow. The goal of an exhaust is remove spent combustion gases as quickly and efficiently as possible out of the engine cylinders. Back pressure has the opposite effect, impeding exhaust flow. Exhaust velocity, and exhaust scavenging, however, are highly beneficial. This video will discuss wave scavenging, inertial scavenging, and how exhaust pipe length and diameter play a critical role in exhaust velocity and scavenging effectiveness.

What is a performance clutch? Clutch kit? How does a performance clutch work? A performance clutch basically involves three changes over traditional organic clutches. This video features a Yonaka performance clutch kit. A performance clutch has a higher clamping force on the pressure plate (via the diaphragm spring). Performance clutches use different materials which can absorb less heat and that don't lose performance at higher temperatures. Finally, performance clutches use a "puck" design, 3 puck, 4 puck, 6 puck, which increase the pressure on the friction material, to prevent slip.

Toyota's Dynamic Force Engine Has Reached 40% Thermal Efficiency EE Shirts! - http://bit.ly/2BHsiuo Recommended Books & Car Products - http://amzn.to/2BrekJm Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 Toyota's "Dynamic Force Engine" is designed with torque, power, and efficiency in mind. The whole idea of the engine centers on improving the speed of combustion. If combustion is faster, the engine makes more torque, and it does so more efficiently. So how did they do this? Well there are numerous features of the engine which encourage quick combustion. It starts with a compression ratio of 13:1 for conventional engines, or 14:1 for their engine paired with hybrid vehicles. They've increased the stroke/bore ratio, increased the angle between the intake and exhaust valves, straightened the intake path, and incorporated laser clad valve seats. All this results in combustion that you can watch side-by-side occurring significantly faster versus the previous engine. Engineering Explained is a participant in the Amazon Influencer Program.

10 Reasons Why Engines Lose Power Over Time
 
05:20
Why Do Engines Lose Horsepower As They Get Older? Sponsored by: https://www.AutoTempest.com/ Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 There are four things a gasoline engine requires to generate power and almost any engine problem will come down to something relating to one of these four factors. 1. Air 2. Fuel 3. Compression 4. Spark Dirty Air Filter A clogged air filter makes the engine work harder to pull in air, and can restrict the maximum amount of air let in. Less air means less power. Exhaust Restrictions The engine will have to work harder to push out exhaust gases, limiting power. Catalytic converters can clog up on engines with an improper air/fuel mixture or as a result of fuel additives reacting within. Mufflers can also fail internally, and alterations of the internal piping can result in an airflow restriction. Fuel Injectors Deposits can build up on the injectors over time from heat soak or poor fuel. Small restrictions can cause the O2 sensors to read a lean mixture, and so more fuel will be added to compensate. This can result in a rich mixture for the cylinders without injector problems, or even misfiring if the injector isn’t capable of injecting enough fuel. Fuel Pumps Overtime the fuel pump can wear out, but it might not necessarily fail catastrophically. While it may still be able to supply fuel at lower pressures, it may begin to struggle to provide fuel at higher pressures or for longer durations. Worn Piston Rings One of the major things that can happen over time is the piston rings will wear down, and this will allow for blow-by. Some of the high pressure air and fuel mixture combusting will pass by the pistons and travel along the cylinder walls into the crank case. This is pressure that should be pressing the piston down, so power is lost. It also means less compression as some of the air can escape as the piston travels upward on the intake stroke. Carbon Deposits On Intake Valves/Valve Seats If carbon deposits build up on the valves or valve seats, this can prevent the valves from closing properly. If an intake valve cannot fully close, it will allow air to escape during the compression stroke, effectively lowering the compression ratio. Carbon Deposits On The Piston If deposits build on the piston or cylinder walls, these deposits can create hot spots. These hot spots can result in engine knock if conditions allow for it. If the engine is capable, it will retard the ignition timing to reduce the likelihood of knock. By retarding the ignition timing, power is lost. Fouled Spark Plugs Spark plugs can build deposits with time. Inconsistent spark plug firing means you’re likely to misfire. Maintaining clean plugs ensures that the spark part of the equation doesn’t result in a loss of power.

Well, while they both do a wonderful job of increasing and engine's horsepower, they go about it in quite different ways. The turbocharger relies on exhaust gas pressure to spool up a turbine to deliver more air to the engine. A supercharger on the other hand is driven by an engine belt, which rotates a compressor feeding the engine fresh air. While ultimately both will result in more power, there are advantages to each, such as throttle characteristics, efficiency, torque curve characteristics, engine reliability, and packaging. In this video we'll discuss the pros and cons of running a supercharger or a turbocharger on your car. Engineering Explained is a participant in the Amazon Influencer Program.

The five cylinder engine isn't too common in the automotive industry, though it is an interesting engine choice. It offers more cylinders than an inline four, at less length than an inline 6, giving it good packaging abilities for FWD vehicles, and the potential for good power. Although the primary and secondary reciprocating forces are balanced vertically, there is a plane imbalance, requiring the I5 to have a balancing shaft in order to cancel out the vibrations, if desired.
