Excessive blow by from an engine position sensor. You would check this by verifying crankcase pressure and making sure the engine is in proper time and valves properly adjusted.

How much power is lost in a power distribution transformer under no load?

What pieces of information are needed before selecting a power supply?

The main piece of information needed is the load wattage or amperage that will be connected to the power supply. Once this is known the power supply of a greater size that the load should be chosen. Also with this information the size of the wires can be calculated from the power supply to the load. Too small a wire will create a voltage drop at the load end of the circuit. This will cause under performance of the load.

Can reactive power be used to power a bulb?

The 'type' of power is determined by the load. If the load is resistive (e.g. a lamp) then the rate at which it consumes energy is termed 'true power', expressed in watts.You seem to be under the impression that reactive power is 'pushed out' into a load. This is quite false; the loaddetermines the power.
