Auto Parts – How Not To Need Them

Auto Parts - How Not To Need Them

We live in a generation where people are lazy and so dependent on modern conveniences. We can not even be bothered anymore to push buttons on a machine to get results. In our day and age everything is touch-sensitive – no need to push the button, just touch the screen and get results! We also have remote controls for every type of electric gadget including light switches, music players, TV, car engines, fans, and A/C and heating systems to name a few.

The Laziness

Part of this laziness is that we also don’t rely on our feet to take us around and take us to places. We instead rely on wheels. If it will be a bicycle wheel or even a roller blade wheel it will be good. But not. We rely on motorized wheels. Be it a motorcycle or a car, we want to quickly and efficiently bring ourselves to where we need to go with the smallest effort possible.

From all the motorized wheels available to us, most people like their own personal car best. We like the privacy and convenience of having a car at our beck and call. No longer do we like to rely on taxis, trains, buses or even a friendly hitch. We want to have a car parked right outside in our driveway or in front of our house or apartment building, waiting patiently for the minute we decide it’s time to make use of it. No matter the distance, be it close or far, intricacy or intercity, our private car gets us to where we need and want to go and at the exact time that we want to. We get into our car to drive down the block or around the corner. Many of us would even dig our car out …

Auto Parts – Fuel Injection Systems

Auto Parts - Fuel Injection Systems

To follow fuel and emissions standards, the fuel system currently used in modern cars has changed completely over the years. Even the last car sold in the United States has a Subaru Justy carburetor. Since then, all new cars have been working with fuel injection. Although fuel injection systems have existed since 2019, they are not often used until extensive use in European vehicles begins. At present, all cars sold in the US have a fuel injection system in their parts inventory.

Fuel Injection Systems

The internal combustion engine for most of its existence had been supplied with fuel by the carburetor and on smaller engines it still is. But with car engines becoming more and more complex to meet emissions requirements that had become stricter and stricter, the catalytic converter was introduced. But this auto part needed very close control of the air-to-fuel ratio to work effectively. O2 sensors or oxygen sensors were put in to observe the oxygen amount in the exhaust and another auto part called the “engine control unit” would then take this information making any real-time adjustments to the air-to-fuel ratio. But this system did not maintain control of the carburetor properly as the O2 sensors often needed replacing nor did electrically controlled carburetors so another means had to be developed to manage this problem. That’s when the fuel injection system began to be used in cars.

Initially, the single point injection system replaced the carburetor. But slowly when a new and more powerful engine was developed, one point was replaced by a “multi-port” injection.

In these systems, each cylinder has an individual fuel injector that sprays fuel right on the intake point and these systems offer much more precise fuel metering and fuel reaction.

How Do These Systems and Parts Work?
