Best Answer

For gasoline fuel, the perfect air/fuel mixture is approximately 14.7 times the mass of air to fuel. Any mixture less than 14.7 to 1 is considered to be a rich mixture, any more than 14.7 to 1 is a lean mixture - given perfect (ideal) "test" fuel (gasoline consisting of solely n-heptane and iso-octane). Simply put, the fuel/air mixture explodes inside the cylinder, driving the piston down, thus turning the crankshaft, which drives the transmission, thus driving the drive wheels.

not true the perfect air fuel mixture is 16.9

How fuel is processed in the engine in order to make the car operate?

A piston moves up and down inside the combustion chamber. In a four stroke engine when the piston is moving down it is drawing air and fuel into the combustion chamber. on its way back up it compresses the fuel then when it hits top dead center the spark plug sparks and causes an explosion which pushes the piston down, repeating the cycle.

Lack of fuel it needs to operate


What do you do before starting an inboard gasoline engine?

Unscrew the fuel air valve on the fuel tank, connect the fuel pipe to the engine and prime the engine with fuel.


Which fuels be used to operate the engine on the R-14C fuel servicing module?

Any diesel based fuel.


Can you convert electric fuel a mechanical fuel pump to a 1996 5.7 Liter motor?

No, there is no way to operate a mechanical pump on your engine.


Why must you operate the exhaust blower before starting a boat engine?

To remove fuel vapors


What does the fuel pump do?

The fuel pump basically does what the name implies. It picks up fuel in the tank and pumps it from the fuel tank through a fuel filter to the engine. The pump is set to operate at a certain pressure that is needed for the application.

How engine eat up less fuel?

Engines can become more efficient by refining the processes that operate the engine, better fuel/air mixtures, better power transfer, alternate fuels


What type of engine is needed for a car to operate?

Most cars use an internal combustion engine or variance thereof to operate. An internal combustion engine works by using combustible fuel, such as fossil fuels, and combining this with a fuel oxidizer. The combination of the two creates high pressure and high temperatures to move different parts of the engine (pistons, turbine blades etc).

What is an engine?

an engine is the part of a machine that is responsible for turning fuel or electricity in power that is used to operate the machine. Example: A plane's engines burn fuel in oxygen in order for air to expand inside them, after the air expands, it is compressed and released out on the other end of the engine while moving the plane in the process.A machine with moving parts that converts power into motion.


Why is it rpm goes down everytime aircon is turn on?

Short Answer: Because it takes power from the engine to operate the A/C compressor. More detailed answer: Under a given load, an engine will operate at a given speed when a certain amount of fuel is provided. If you don't increase the fuel, but you increase the load (by turning on the A/C compressor), something has to give, and the engine operates a bit more slowly. Therefore, you would have to press on the gas just a tiny bit more to get the engine to operate at the same speed, which necessarily means you're using a bit more fuel.


How is fossil fuel processed?

not sure


Why must you operate the exhaust blower before starting a boat with an inboard gas engine?

Operating the exhaust blower purges the engine compartment of explosive fuel fumes.


Where is the fuel pump located on a 1984 Cadillac?

If it has the 4100 motor, then the fuel pump is in the gas tank, be very careful when removing and installing, because if not properly ground, the fuel indicator and the engine will not operate correctly


How is fuel processed in a engine?

Fuel is mixed with air and enters cylinders; the misture is compressed and a spark plug ignites the explosive mix causing a rapid expansin of gases- that is called a powe strock.


Can you have a carburettor in a two stroke engine?

you have to have a carburettor to mix the air and fuel correctly in order for the engine to run


What is timing for a car how does that help the car?

Timing is when the car fires the spark plug to ignite the fuel to create a burn. This has to be an exact science for the engine to operate properly. To early, and the fuel and air does not have enough time to compress, and this will cause engine knock. To late, you lose the compression. Either way, the fuel is not burning properly, and you fuel mileage can suffer, or even cause damage to the engine.


How do you bypass the electronics on 1991 f250?

You're really not going to - those electronics are needed in order for the vehicle to operate. The only way you'll do away with the engine ECM is if you remove the fuel injection and replace it with a carbureted system.


What would cause 2002 impala to lose power going down the road but runs fin sitting still?

Often what you're describing is nothing more than the fuel pump or fuel filter. A low pressure fuel pump or partially blocked fuel filter won't be able to send enough fuel for the injector(s) to operate properly when the engine is under load but it will be enough to operate when the engine is at an idle. You might also want to check the bypass/pressure regulator.


Why do cars need gas to run if there's a engine?

The engine needs fuel to run. The car needs you to run it.


Can accord operate without thermostat?

An Accord will run without a thermostat. But, it will not operate properly. The heat, fuel/air mixture, even the mileage depend on the thermostat keeping the engine in the correct temperature range.
