After you have performed your desired dynamometer tests, you need to take a look at the information you received. If you have a manual recording system you should calculate and transform the torque and rpm readings into horsepower numbers. If you’ve got a manual electronic data collection the next step will be to print out the data.

On personal computer equipped dynamometers you should name the new data file and enter all the relevant data about the test run you have ended.

There are software packages for your dynamometers that grant you the possibility of entering virtually any parameter you want in certain windows. This is very handy, as you can store important information in a structured data base, making it more accessible. If you don’t own a system equipped with sensors that capture the weather conditions you should write them down as soon as you finish the dynamometer tests.

It is very important to choose an appropriate output report format for reviewing the dynamometer’s data. When you examine the data received from you dyno, you should discard any information gathered during periods of rapid rpm change. You should instead concentrate on the ranges where the engine maintains a stable number of rotations for at least a few consecutive seconds.

Another important step is to average the data received from the dynamometer. Even numbers with some inertial errors can still produce valuable information after they have been averaged.

If you observe any unusual numbers in your results, you have probably made some mistakes when you chose the tachometer pulse settings. Or, if horsepower is a lot smaller than you expected it to be, you should check if the throttle was wide open during the test. You should also remember about the problem of exhaust being reabsorbed into the intake system. Perform another pull, following the same procedures as the first dynamometer test, making sure you everything is checked and working properly. Remember to warm up the engine before you begin the test. On the second run, you shouldn’t make any significant parameter changes, and concentrate on repeatability instead. In fact, you are really testing the repeatability of your actions and the stability of your engine, since the dynamometer did not change between runs.

Whenever possible, when chasing small improvements, you should retest the engine in its baseline state. This additional real-time check will spare you a great deal of time in the more important and longer runs.

9 Japanese Automakers

Posted by: Car Dealer  /  Category: Cars News

491
There are nine Japanese automakers in the world. Only two are independent, six are partly owned by American or European companies while one is fully owned by Toyota. Think you know all nine? Explore within to find out if you do!
Toyota parts, Mazda parts, Acura parts, discount auto parts, car parts, Mitsubishi, Lexus,Infiniti
Japanese built and designed cars have flooded the North American market for over forty years now. Over time, many nameplates have come and gone, but Japanese cars continue to gain market share and acceptance with a growing number of motorists attracted to their high quality and durability. There are nine Japanese automobile manufacturing companies in existence. Can you name them? Let’s take a look at the list:

Toyota ?The second largest automaker in the world is Toyota, maker of the Camry, the Corolla, and a host of SUVs, trucks, passenger cars, and a van. Toyota’s Lexus division produces luxury cars, while its Scion division manufactures youth oriented vehicles.

Honda ?The Accord and the Civic are Honda’s two most well known models, followed by the Odyssey minivan, the Ridgeline truck, the Element, and several other passenger vehicles. Acura is the name given to Honda’s luxury car division.

Nissan ?Drive a Datsun and then decide. Up until the early 1980s, Nissan’s North American nameplate was Datsun, but was switched to Nissan to give it a more global name. The Sentra, Maxima, and Pathfinder are amongst the division’s best selling vehicles. Infiniti is Nissan’s luxury car division. Renault Motors of France owns a controlling interest in Nissan.

Mitsubishi ?Originally imported exclusively by Chrysler, Mitsubishi began to sell cars under its own name in the 1980s. Top selling models include the Lancer, the Eclipse, and the Montero. DaimlerChrysler owns a chunk of the company.

Mazda ?The Tribute, Miata, and the ??are some of the most well known Mazda models. The Mazda 6′s platform also powers several Ford Motor Company cars including the Mercury Milan. Ford owns an important stake in the company.

Subaru ?Think all wheel drive and you may just think Subaru. The Forester, Outback, and Legacy are all top selling Subaru models. Fuji Heavy Industries [FHI] owns Subaru; General Motors has a 20 percent stake in FHI.

Suzuki ?20% owned by General Motors, Suzuki is as noted for producing cars as it is for manufacturing motorcycles. The Grand Vitara is one of its most noted models.

Isuzu ?Did someone say General Motors? Again, GM owns a stake in Isuzu. At one time Isuzu imported cars to the US, but those days are over. Currently, Isuzu has a miniscule presence and the two vehicles they do sell ?the Ascender SUV and I Series pick ups ?are simply rebadged GMC vehicles.

Daihatsu ?The Charade and Rocky were two models introduced by Daihatsu when the car company started selling vehicles in North America in 1988; four years later its North American operations were closed. In 1999, Toyota assumed controlling interest over the company.

So, there you have it: there are nine Japanese automakers, two of which are still independent. Much like the American market further consolidation is likely with nameplates disappearing entirely just like the Packard, Hudson, Oldsmobile, Plymouth, and a host of other North American nameplates have driven off into the history books.

Famous Ford Flops

Running a business means reaching for success as well as tasting failure. Ford has had its share of winners and losers over the years; let’s take a look at four truly forgettable and infamous Fords.

Catco catalytic converters, Bosch oxygen sensors, Ford parts, Edsel, Ford Pinto, Ford Fairlane, cars

American automakers sometimes take the brunt of the criticism for producing models that are ugly, useless, or even downright dangerous. Ford has had its share of beasts through the years in addition to several winners including the current Mustang for which demand cannot be met. For the fun of it let’s take a look at some of the Ford models that have been derided down through the years.

Model T ?What?! How can the car that introduced mass production make the list? Well, the car was fine, but Mr. Henry Ford’s statement, ?you can have any color you want as long as it is black?has been attributed with the rise of General Motors [who gave its customers a choice in colors] which eventually dethroned Ford as the top automaker in the world. No, the Model T was fine, but Mr. Ford’s marketing strategy was not.

Edsel ?In September 1957, Ford launched a new division ?Edsel ?and introduced to America one of the weirdest looking cars. Sporting a “horse-collar?shaped grille ?some equated it with a toilet seat ?the Edsel line was hyped by Ford and rejected by consumers wholeheartedly. Expecting to build 200,000 Edsels in its first year of production, only 63,000 were built. Other “radical?aspects of the Edsel included a “floating?speedometer that glowed upon reaching a particular speed and an awkward push button transmission with controls attached to the hub of the steering wheel. Even with a quick makeover completed in time for the next model year, the Edsel limped along only to be pulled one month after the third model year vehicles were released.

Pinto ?Hey, even I owned one! With a 2.3L inline four cylinder paired with a 4 speed manny tranny, the Pinto was Ford’s answer during the 1970s to the onslaught of Japanese cars flooding the market. The compact rear wheel drive coupe, three door hatchback, or wagon sold fairly well until disaster hit: the revelation that the Pinto’s gas tank was capable of exploding during a rear impact scared buyers away. Mercifully pulled after the 1980 model year; replaced by the popular Escort.

Mustang II ?Ford tarnished the Mustang name during the 1970s with this forgettable and ugly model. Resembling a bloated and stretched Pinto, the Mustang II was weak, poorly made, and a terrible competitor against its arch rival, the Camaro. All was forgiven by the early 1980s with the return of a newly designed Mustang. Today’s Mustang, on the other hand, is a sold-out success story as it took its styling cues from a Mustang of another era: the fastback cars of the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Before you point your finger at Ford, don’t forget to recall some truly forgettable models, foreign and domestic. The Toyota Van was panned for its ugly styling and for having an engine that had to be dropped from the engine bay in order to do a tune up; the Chevy Vega ?a Pinto wannabe; AMC’s Pacer ?the Jetson’s car; the Suzuki Samurai and Isuzu Rodeo ?flip over specialists; the Yugo ?a thinly redone 1960s era Fiat; and countless other cars not worth the mention. You hope that automakers learn from their mistakes, but don’t count on it. Maybe in another generation we will see a truly forgettable Ford show up, but for now there isn’t one in the line up…hooray for that!

Golf Carts, Club cars, Golf Buggies – all the same thing – have come a long way from the golf course, although they can still be found there, too.

Golf Carts were originally designed to ferry golfers and their equipment from the end of one hole on the course to the start of the next, and back to the clubhouse. Whatever happened to golf as exercise? You will now see golf carts in all kinds of places far removed from the golf course.

Golf Carts, Club cars, Golf Buggies – all the same thing – have come a long way from the golf course, although they can still be found there, too.

Golf Carts were originally designed to ferry golfers and their equipment from the end of one hole on the course to the start of the next, and back to the clubhouse. Whatever happened to golf as exercise? You will now see golf carts in all kinds of places far removed from the golf course.

Golf Cars are used on university campuses and to ferry presidents around. Their other uses are only just beginning to be explored. They are used in large warehouses and factories to move around quickly, without the noise and pollution that a conventional vehicle would cause.

In many ways these compact vehicles represent a ready-made alternative to the gas-engined automobile, except they are small and go slowly. Around town they are perfect for carrying the kids to school, or going to the grocery store. These uses have not taken off because of the attitude of most drivers, who insist on speed and protective devices around them.

You can buy standard accessories like a windscreen or enclosing body, or you can go for full customization.

You may want an electric vehicle for around the farm – you can buy spray equipment to fit to most “Golf Cars”. You may want a 4×4 “Golf Car” for hunting or just driving through the forest. All of these are available at reasonable cost.

You want camouflage? You’ve got it.
You want weapon racks? You’ve got them.
You want a sunbrella? You’ve got it.

Golf Cars are used on university campuses and to ferry presidents around. Their other uses are only just beginning to be explored. Golf cars provide a quiet and environmentally acceptable mode of personal transport.

Getting “Fueled-Up” For Summer Driving

Posted by: Car Dealer  /  Category: Cars News

Amid today’s ever-changing fuel landscape, it is important for drivers to educate themselves about how to make smarter decisions for their vehicles–especially during the warmer months.

Getting “Fueled-Up” For Summer Driving

As temperatures begin to rise, so does the anticipation of being able to drive with the windows down and the wind blowing in your hair during America’s hottest season. Amid today’s ever-changing fuel landscape, it is important for drivers to educate themselves about how to make smarter decisions for their vehicles-especially during the summer months. Car owners, it is time to get “fueled-up” for summer driving.

Cars, like their drivers, require proper maintenance and replenished fluids in order to be prepared for the sweltering summer heat. Lauren Fix, The Car Coach? a nationally recognized automotive expert, shares some tips for consumers on how to keep their cars performing at their best throughout the summertime.

• Inspect the cooling system. Prevent your car’s engine from rapid overheating by inspecting its cooling system. Make sure to keep an eye on the coolant level-if low, refill using a 50/50 mixture of water and antifreeze. If your antifreeze is dirty or weak, have your cooling system flushed at your local auto repair shop. Also, while you’re there, have your auto technician test the cooling fan and thermostat for proper operation and repair or replace as needed.

• Fill up with quality fuel. When at the pump, be sure to rejuvenate with a quality fuel such as Amoco Ultimate?premium fuel at BP. With continuous use, it can help clean-up dirty engines by cutting away deposits from intake valves. A cleaner engine can give your car better performance-ensuring less hesitation and smoother acceleration. It may even help improve your gas mileage for a more cost-efficient summer road trip.

• Replenish fluids. Don’t let your car dehydrate; make sure that all fluids are replenished accordingly. Remember to check and/or replace the transmission, brake, washer and power-steering fluids. All can be easily located by reviewing your owner’s manual, or consulting your local auto technician for expert help.

• Examine the AC system. The air temperature coming from the air conditioning ducts should be approximately 35 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit. If not, you should have it inspected by a licensed AC repair facility or your local auto technician where they will inspect for leaks, repair them and recharge the system with the proper amount of Freon for your vehicle.

• Change your oil more often. Start the season off with premium motor oil for maximum engine protection. This is especially important in the summer because hot weather requires extra lubrication for the engine.
