Steps Pull safely off the road, preferably into a rest area or on the road shoulder. Turn … Continue reading

Internal combustion engine cooling

Internal combustion engine cooling

Photo: Some rights reserved by normalityrelief Internal combustion engine cooling uses either air or a liquid to remove the waste heat from an internal combustion engine. For small or special purpose engines, air cooling makes for a lightweight and relatively simple system. The more complex circulating liquid-cooled engines also ultimately reject waste heat to the air, but circulating liquid improves heat transfer from internal parts of the engine. Engines for watercraft may use open-loop cooling, but air and surface vehicles must recirculate a fixed volume of liquid. Overview Heat engines generate mechanical power by extracting energy from heat flows, … Continue reading

Photo: Some rights reserved by Lee Cannon Radiators are heat exchangers used for cooling internal combustion engines, mainly in automobiles but also in piston-engined aircraft, railway locomotives, motorcycles, stationary generating plant or any similar use of such an engine. Internal combustion engines are often cooled by circulating a liquid called engine coolant through the engine block, where it is heated, then through a radiator where it loses heat to the atmosphere, and then returned to the engine. Engine coolant is usually water-based, but may also be oil. It is common to employ a water pump to force the engine … Continue reading

Ford 2017 F150′s Eco Feature With Start Stop Tech

Photo: Some rights reserved by JD Hancock Ford has announced it will use start stop technology on every 2017 F 150 it sells with a turbocharged Eco-Boost engine. That includes the 2017 F 150 Raptor. Since the EPA fuel economy testing procedure does not include coming to a complete stop and then starting up again, the start stop technology will probably have little or no affect on official fuel economy ratings. Typically, start stop systems increase gas mileage and lower carbon emissions by 4 to 5 percent. “We haven’t completed 2017 F-150 fuel economy certification with the EPA, and that is … Continue reading
