Fuel injection system

It was roughly 125 years ago that Rudolf Diesel first obtained the patent on the diesel engine. Since that time, the diesel fuel injection system has seen some upgrading, but things pretty much move along in the same manner prescribed by Rudolf.

Diesel engines perform in a manner that is heavily influenced by their diesel fuel injection system design. The most notable advances achieved in diesel engines, in fact, resulted from designs of diesel fuel injection systems that were far superior. The main purpose of a fuel injection system is to deliver fuel to a diesel engine’s cylinders.

You Might Be Putting Yourself At Risk When You Put Off Windshield Repair

Written by Free Car Magazine. Posted in Uncategorized

windshield repairIf you’ve got a cracked windshield, you’re going to want to take it to an automotive glass replacement shop to get it fixed immediately. Windshield repair shouldn’t be taken lightly — your windshield is responsible for 35% of the structural integrity of your vehicle. With the windshield weakened, there could be severe consequences for not getting it repaired. Plus, the longer you wait to get it fixed, the greater your chances of having it become irreparable are, and you’ll have to start looking at windshield replacement options.

Why Are Windshields So Important? 
Not only is a cracked windshield unsightly, it can also pose a serious safety hazard. If you get into an accident, the windshield plays an important role in keeping you safe. In a head on collision, just under half of the cabin’s structural integrity relies on the windshield. This figure goes up to 60% if you’re in a rollover crash. Additionally, a large enough crack (especially if it spiderwebs out) can impair your view of the road and other vehicles, pedestrians, or bikers on the road when driving, which is also dangerous.

You also don’t want to hold off on getting a rock chip removed or a crack fixed, because while the damage could hold steady for ten years, another round of damage could result in a two foot long crack in seconds. The spread of damage isn’t predictable and only makes you more susceptible to accidents. Plus, if you wait on fixing a chip or a crack, you might end up having to replace your whole windshield which will be pricier in the long run.

When Should I Consider Getting My Windshield Repaired? 
A windshield repair shop will often recommend getting your windshield totally replaced if there are repairs within four inches of each other. The Repair of Laminated Automotive Glass Standard also recommends replacing your windshield if the damage’s diameter is over an inch in the driver’s sight line. Generally, they can repair a crack or chip up to three inches long, but any longer than that and you might want to consider replacing the whole thing.

Luckily, if you’re looking at windshield repair service, you can usually get a chip or crack repaired for less than $100. Replacing the windshield itself is going to be a little pricier, but check with your insurance policy to see if they’ll cover any of it.

Tips for Getting Your Windshield Repaired 
If you’re unsure about whether you should get your windshield repaired or replaced entirely, talk to a auto glass repair professional right away. He or she will be able to make the best recommendation.

You want to make sure that you’re hiring a reputable company who is going to repair your windshield correctly and effectively. Shockingly, in a report from 2007, almost 80% of glass replacements were not done properly, which is highly dangerous. You don’t want your windshield falling out in an accident or for there to be the possibility of passenger ejection in a car crash.

Ask family and friends if they’ve gone to see an auto glass repair service and what their experience was like. Be sure to research the service online and make sure that customer reviews are excellent before approaching them. Don’t be afraid to get in touch with multiple services and get quotes from them and learn about their procedures.

Make sure they have the right tools to handle your windshield replacement job and aren’t cutting corners on doing the job properly. The body of the car and the glass itself should be cleaned before installation and everything should be allowed to set and cure before the car is ready to go back out on the road.

Don’t skimp on your safety. If your windshield is somehow compromised, you want to get in to an auto glass repair service immediately to remedy the problem. Don’t let it go and hope for the best. Your safety and the safety of your passengers might be at risk with a damaged windshield.
