To answer your two-part question: Not always and no.
A 3-liter engine is a larger engine than a 2 liter. The size is determined by calculating the volume of each cylinder and multiplying that value by the number of cylinders the engine has.
An engine is essentially a pump. Since a larger engine can pump more air/fuel mixture, than it can make more power which will provide a higher top speed, unless other factors interfere (speed limiter, etc)
A car with a larger engine cannot 'hold' more fuel. fuel is 'held' in the gas tank.
back in the '50s & '60s it was pretty easy to figure out that cars that had more displacement (cubic inches) had more power. Because of advances in engine design, this is no longer the case. Variations in compression ratio, force induction (supercharger & turbochargers) can make a small displacement engine put out more power than a large displacement engine. These days it's entirely possible for a small hatchback with a 4 cylinder engine with less than 1.6 liters to put out more power than a V8 with over 5 liters.
2.5 liter engine is smaller and more fuel efficient. 3.5 liter engine is a strong engine with better acceleration, but is less fuel efficient
If you mean hunting at idle, the problem is caused by the idle speed being set too high or the idle switch is not properly adjusted. When the throttle is closed as indicated by the idle switch the fuel is cut off by the fuel cut solenoid until the engine speed drops below a preset speed. If the engine speed is higher than that speed and the idle switch is closed there is no fuel for the engine, thus the engine speed drops. When it drops below the preset speed the fuel is turned on and the engine speed goes back up.
Yes , the 3.0 liter " Vulcan " V6 engine ( and its flex fuel version ) and the 3.0 liter " Duratec " DOHC , V6 engine are fuel injected
The 2.4 liter engine does not consume a lot of fuel compared to larger engines like the 5 liter. This engine is considered to be fuel efficient in newer vehicle models.
The fuel consumption improves on only one engine since the engine speed is higher thus higher compression thus higher efficiency (assuming altitute remains teh same).
where is located the fuel injector presssure regulator on a 1999 ford explorer 5.0 liter engine?
Nine cubic meters of air is required to burn 1 liter of fuel in a diesel engine. A person does not put liters of air into a diesel engine. Liters of fuel are put into a diesel engine.
There are several possibilities: a clogged fuel line or fuel filter, a malfunctioning fuel pump, or a problem with the clutch and/or transmission that prevents a higher engine speed from causing increased wheel speed.
Where is the fuel pressure regulator located on a 1989 chevy silvarado with 5.7 liter engine
On a 1998 Mercury Mountaineer : Yes , both the 4.0 liter , SOHC , V6 engine and the 5.0 liter V8 engine are fuel injected
Cylinder size is nothing to do with the amount of fuel the engine uses !
Do you have fuel pressure ? It must have 9 to 13 LBS. No higher or lower are you will have starting and running problems.
The 1994 Mercury Cougar 4.6 liter engine fuel pump relay switch can be found on the firewall in the engine compartment. The fuel pump relay switch will be on the passenger side of the firewall.
Where is the leak at? Engine?
On a 1995 Ford 4.0 liter V6 engine : I believe that is 39/40 PSI ( 30 PSI at idle ) fuel pressure
I believe it is located in the fuel tank.
55 to 62 PSI no lower are higher anywhere in between is ok. Check with key on engine off.
The 2.2 liter VTEC (H22A) engine recommends top grade (premium) fuel due to higher compression. You may use lower grade (lower octane) fuel but run the risk of damaging the engine and will surely reduce engine performance and reduce fuel economy.
Its located on the fuel rail, on the right side of the engine.
The speed of an engine connected to an alternator is generally maintained as constant & the variation of load is taken care of by the engine governor which accordingly increases` the fuel rack or decreases the fuel rack & thus the fuel input to the engine. All of this happens at a constant engine speed maintained by the governor. If without any change in the load on the engine, the fuel supply is increased , may be because of defective governor, the engine speed will immediately shoot-up causing activation of Over Speed Trip assembly ( a safety device fitted on the engine to prevent damage to the reciprocating & rotating engine components from incresaed speeds).
118 mph that's when the computer shuts down the entry of fuel to the engine and the car stalks.
It is in the fuel tank.
