make sure you have vaccum to the transducer, i believe there will be 2 hoses coming from the throttle body. make sure that the metal line that connects to the bottom of the transducer is not clogged with carbon. if you have vaccum and that line is clear, take the hose that goes to the egr vsv solenoid off the transducer and rev the engine up. if it is good you will have vaccum through the transducer, if its bad no vaccum will be there.

What is the purpose of a pressure transducer?

A pressure transducer measures pressure, specifically that of gases or liquids. Such pressure sensors are used in the measurement and control of thousands of everyday applications. A pressure transducer is just that; a transducer - it generates a signal due to the pressure imposed.

What is a pressure transducer?

Transducer (i.e. a device for converting energy from one form to another) for both vacuum and positive pressure.

Ware is the low pressure switch?

This vehicle does not have a low pressure switch. It has a pressure transducer instead. The pressure transducer is located on the refrigerant line next to the alternator pulley.

It is a slang tern given to a Differential Pressure Sensor or Transducer.

Where is the ac low pressure switch located on a 1993 Pontiac Grand AM?

On a 1993 Grand Am (and most other GM front drivers) there is no low pressure switch, instead it has a thermal expansion valve system with a "pressure transducer" located on the high pressure hose. The pressure transducer sends a square wave digital signal to the PCM, which can calculate high side pressure in PSI through a mathematical formula, which in turn sends a signal to the a/c compressor clutch relay to turn on if the pressure is within the set parameters. The a/c pressure transducer cannot be checked with a test light or such, you WILL short the computer if you try!!

How a Transducer work?

That depends on what it transduces: pressure, temperature, light, radioactivity, etc.

What is the purpose of vantage meter transducer package?

The vantage meter, sold by Snap-On is used for numerous automotive diagnostics. The transducer package is used for pressure measurements. (Fuel pressure, oil pressure, combustion chamber compression, manifold vacuum, etc.)

Is the piezoresistive transducer a pressure transducer?

Yes. The piezoresistive effect was first applied to commercial pressure transducers, and remains very popular. However, many other sensors have been developed using this semiconductor property.

Speaker is electronic transducer?

Technically, a transducer is defined as a device, which converts other sources of energy such as heat, mechanical, pressure etc. into electrical energy, i.e., the output of a transducer is always electrical energy. Since, a speaker converts electrical energy into sound energy, it is not a transducer.
