Car’s Oxygen Sensors

What is the oxygen sensor? It is a small sensor. This is found inserted into the Suzuki vehicles, or any vehicles for that matter, exhaust system. This is usually found in vehicles which have petrol engines. What this part does is it measures the concentration of oxygen that is found in the exhaust gas. By doing such, it actually allows the vehicle’s electronic control unit, or much known as ECU, to control the efficiency of the combustion process in the engine.

According to manufacturers of oxygen sensors, this part of the vehicle is one of the key components of the total performance of a vehicle. These parts may be small, just around the size of a clothes pin, but they do a great deal by monitoring the engine exhaust of your vehicle. And the engine exhaust is one of the most common causes of air pollution if not monitored well.

By continually determining the amount of oxygen in the exhaust, it also monitors the exhaust gases. The engine computer is then alerted to adjust the air and fuel ratio so much so that the gasoline combustion is complete. In the same process, the harmful emissions are lessened. Also, the engine performance and efficiency is improved.

According to Church Ruth, the general product manager of Bosch which is one of the manufacturers of oxygen sensors, “Studies shows that two thirds of all vehicle emissions test failures are a result of worn out oxygen sensors. Those numbers are staggering when you consider that oxygen sensors are easy enough to replace and that the vast majority of them are also inexpensive, costing roughly $20 to $50.”

The common signs and symptoms that your vehicle needs an oxygen sensor replacement? Well, you will notice that your Suzuki has excessive fuel consumption. It also gives off high emissions of gas. The engine surges or hesitates. Also, there is a premature failure of the catalytic converter. What you should do is try to look at the oxygen sensor itself. If you notice that there is a shiny deposit on the heat shield or any kind of gummy or gooey deposit, it simply means that you should replace your oxygen sensor already.

High maintenance costs can be actually avoided by purchasing top of the line body parts from auto parts sources like Auto Parts Discount. They actually have been in the industry for years and it has certainly proven client patronage. Assistance is also available for customers who are in the dark regarding their oxygen sensor purchases, Suzuki parts purchases, or any other products that they have in store.

Guide to Add Freon to Car AC

At first, we should be increasing the compression ratio of the engine. The fuel that we use in our vehicle should be with higher octane levels. For that you may use an octane booster. Using octane boosters, we can easily increase the compression ratio of the fuel that we use in our vehicle. After doing these things, the horsepower of the vehicle will be automatically increased. Before determining the octane level of the fuel, you should be having a look at the compression ratio of the engine of your vehicle.

If the air conditioning unit of your car stops performing a sudden, you should be trying your luck with Freon. Well, a good percentage of such cases get solved using Freon. Before thinking of using Freon on the air conditioning unit, make sure you are with the required things like gloves, eye protection materials etc. Well, Freon should not be used in cars that are manufactured before 1993. Freon should only be used on the longer recharging hoses. You’ll be finding shorter recharging hoses as well. Tackling the air conditioning unit is not at all an easy thing. For the same reason, you should not attempt it yourselves, if you are a newbie.

In short, if you are thinking of increasing the compression ratio of your car, you should be trying your luck using octane boosters. Well, there are lots of benefits of using octane boosters – many of them have already been mentioned above. On the other hand, Freon is something that you should be using if you encounter some problems with the air conditioning unit of your car.

 

Cold Air Intake for Good Performance

Does your car manufacturer go all the way in giving you a high performance car? Well not quite. And the reason is simple. Not everyone wants a car purely for its performance. But if you do like to take a stock car’s performance higher you can do that with select car aftermarket products. For example you can install a cold air intake.

Cold air intakes are products that as their name suggests carry cold air to the engine. An engine has a fixed amount of volume to carry out the combustion of the fuel. The more is the oxygen in that volume the better will be the combustion of the fuel. Now cold air contains more oxygen for the same volume than hot air. That is because cold air is more dense. Therefore the combustion is better when the engine gets cold air than when it gets hot air. Why would the engine get hot air? Well in a stock car the air travels in the volume under the hood where it gets hot on its way to the engine. With a cold air intake the air goes directly to the engine and does not get hot on the way.

A cold air intake therefore improves the fuel efficiency of your car in an elegant manner since the combustion of the fuel is more complete. It also increases the power since more fuel is burnt in every cycle.

A cold air intake also gives the distinctive deep roaring sound to the car. This sound too is very popular amongst car enthusiasts. Cold air intakes are not expensive and they are a great way to give your car a personal touch and to improve its performance. Since the air intake is usually visible it also gives your car a hot performance car look.

 

Classic vs Vintage Old Cars

A layman will be forgiven for assuming that vintage and classic cars are the same, but that assumption would reveal you as a novice somewhere like the Vintage Car Rally. If you’re thinking of going ‘retro’ with your next vehicle it’s important to get clued up on which is which.

It turns out that nailing down the answer can be easier said than done and the debate amongst real enthusiasts and fanatics can get pretty heated. Broadly speaking, in Britain any car that was made over 15 years ago could fall into one of three categories. We’ll look at them in chronological order:

A car will qualify and be classified as vintage if it was built before 1930. Cars in this category include the Rolls-Royce Wraith and Triumph Roadster.

The second category covers World War 2 vehicles, also known as post-vintage thoroughbreds. American Jeeps from this era later inspired one of the most well known cars on the roads today, the Land Rover.

Classic cars make up the third category. This classification is slightly muddier as it spans cars made in the 1940s right through to the 1980s. As such this could include anything from a Austin A40 to a Peugeot 205GTi.

If you are thinking of investing in an old car spend some time researching your car before you buy it. Once you’ve found a model you like go down and talk to the owner and check it from bumper to bumper.

Rust is the retro car owner’s biggest concern. Engines can be rebuilt but if the bodywork has been damaged by rust it is very difficult to replace. You may even have to arrange to have a bespoke one built.

Some vintage cars don’t have the safety features offered by most modern motors. For example many are exempt from having seatbelts or even window washers. Investigate what safety features your preferred make and model would normally have and whether you might be able to install them if not. Also consider who your passengers will be, and whether they will object to forgoing all the ‘mod cons’. Plus it’s important to consider how many people will regularly be travelling with you, as many older cars can only carry a limited number safely.

Before purchasing you may want to consider that some older classic car models are exempt from road tax. If your car was built (as opposed to registered) before 1st January 1973 then it will be classed as Historic by the DVLA and as such will qualify for zero rated road tax. That said you will still need to display a tax disc to demonstrate that when you applied for the disc you had current insurance and MOT.

Whether you’ve got a vintage or classic vehicle, car insurance is essential. For some vehicles you may need to go to a specialist insurer, who will understand the specifics of your car and differences between how a classic car driver will drive compared to an owner of a modern car. Remember to tell the insurance company how often you use the car and where it is kept. It’s important to remember that some insurers will assume that a classic car will be kept in a garage and driven a minimal number of miles per year.

For many enthusiasts the pleasure of owning an older car is simply getting it on the road and keeping it in mint condition. So remember buying a classic or vintage car is just the beginning of the journey.

Guide to Change a Car Battery

Things you should need :

1. A new car battery
2. Adjustable wrench
3. Wire brush
4. Lithium grease
5. Baking soda paste

Steps to replace a car battery :

# First off, disconnect all the electrical circuits associated with the car battery. When dealing with car batteries always protect your hands with some materials like protective hand gloves or something like that. In every car battery, you will see a greenish like stuff. This is a corrosive at the same time acidic substance which if comes in contact with our naked hand, can cause serious damage like burns etc.

# Now test the battery – and make sure that it charges and discharges without any problems. You may use a wire brush and baking soda paste for removing that greenish on the battery terminals. Again, don’t forget to protect your hands while dealing with car batteries (especially while dealing with that corrosive substance on the terminals).

# You will have to replace the battery if you think the charge is depleted. First of all you should be removing the connection from the positive terminal and then only attempt doing that at the negative terminal. Clean Car Battery Terminals at that time.

# Hold down the battery towards its compartment or room and then remove the screws and bolts associated with it.

# Now seek help from someone and together, lift the battery from the compartment. After that, if you find something in the compartment, clean it using the wire brush and baking soda paste. Generally, corrosive matter is seen over that place and it can only be cleaned using baking soda paste.

# Now, it’s time to replace the connections. You should start with the positive battery terminals. After doing at both the ends, you should be spraying lithium grease over the connections.

# Now, it’s time for checking how things went. If everything went fine, you will see the electrical system in your vehicle working good as it did in the past.
