What would be the reason for allowing an expansion volume and a venting system in the fuel tank?
Closed-loop, or sealed, fuel systems require that fumes from the gasoline be vented back to the engine for burning. A bad, or "open" vent valve can cause the car to stall when, or immediately after, filling up the gas tank. Because of temperature variances, combined with being a sealed unit, expansion areas must be designed into the tank to allow for gases to expand prior to be sent to the engine.
Average Allowances by Age The average American family pays approximately 50 cents per week for each year of a child's age.For example, a 10-year-old would get $5 per week.Another often-quoted allowance figure is $1 per week for each year of the child's age, so an 8-year-old would receive $8 per ...
Is there a vent on the fuel tank of an 2003 F-250 that might allow water in when crossing deep water?
All gas tanks have vents that vent vapor. They are usually located on the top of the tank and are well protected, but it is possible for them to let water in. I wouldn't be too concerned about it, because water deep enough to fill the tank would drown the engine first. But if you have to run a sn...
The venting system also helps to prevent fuel evaporation.As the aircraft climbs due to the reduction in pressure, the boiling point of fuel decreases.This evaporates fuel.The duct in the picture allows ram air to enter the fuel vent system, which pressurises the fuel tanks and avert the evaporat...
on modern cars the fuel system is unvented. The evap purge and vent solenoid goes to a charcoal canister. When the vehicle is off the fuel tank is connected to the charcoal canister through the P/V solenoid and it absorbs the vented gas fumes from the tank. When the vehicle is on and at speed the...
As the fuel is sucked out of the tank to feed the engines, it must be replaced by air.This is the chief purpose of the venting system.(Other purposes include letting air out during refuelling, and altering air pressure as the aircraft climbs & descends in the atmosphere.)
What causes a Pressure build up in cooling system and then forces water out of the overflow on expansion tank and then vehicle overheats?
A cracked head or bad head gasket or both.
The main reason why people would be looking for cheap car leasing in the UK can be subjective and may depend on a person himself. However, it can be assumed that person who is looking for cheap car leasing wants to save money or profit from it.
Modern vehicle ignition systems use a negative ground system.The reason some older vehicles used a positive ground system was because their manufacturers did not realize that metal erosion caused by sparking causes the center electrodes of the engine's spark plugs to be eaten away by the sparks i...
Many people with newer cars keep collision coverage on their policies, but they also may not know when or if they should drop this coverage. While there's no set of rule for determining wether collision coverage becomes unnecessary for your particular situation, there are some simple consideratio...
Can you get coverage for a used car for your daughter who would be the sole user and who would not be allowed to operate any other car?
While most states have their own insurance rules, you more than likely can do as you would like but you would need to sign a waiver indicating she would not be operating the other car, and if she did there would not be any coverage if she was in an accident.
Gasoline, when used in high compression internal combustion engines, has a tendency to autoignite (detonation) causing a damaging engine knock (also called "pinging") noise. Early research into this effect led to the discovery that lead additives modified this behavior led to the widespread adopt...

The function of the diesel fuel system is to inject a precise amount of atomized and pressurized fuel into each engine cylinder at the proper time.Combustion in a diesel engine occurs when this rush of fuel is mixed with hot compressed air.The fuel system consists of the following components.

Luckily, periodic inspection and maintenance of the steering system is relatively straightforward.Steering “box”: The informal term steering box denotes the assembly that converts the circular motion of the steering wheel shaft into the side-to-side movement that will turn the car's wheels.
NO, but it really depends on what state you live in
Of course, there are other possible reasons that your car won't start.
The air bags might deploy for no reason in a 1997 Chrysler Sebring Convertible if their is a short in the system. It is also possible that a sensor in the bumper was broken somehow.
Why would a car run and when you take the fuel pump off and replace the seal and put it back on correctly it doesnt start anymore. its not getting fuel for some reason?
I can think of a couple possibilities. First, is the obvious, is the pump still coming on? Can you here it hum when you first turn the key on? If not, then the connection has failed, maybe a fuse. Next could be that if the hose before the pump has a crack or is loose, in the tank, it will suck ai...

When one is using a trailer on their car, an electric brake controller measures the car's braking speed and adjusts the electric braking power of the trailer to correspond. This helps avoid collision between trailer and car.
mild loss of compression due to lowed octane and a smokey exaust, should not damage engine as long as it mixes in
No. It can be a blown fuse, bad fan motor switch, bad fan motor, bad fan motor resistor pack, or a loose or disconnected wire.
Car that have air cooled engines (early Volkswagen) used electronic heaters, similar to household baseboard heaters. Some other cars in the 30's had a door in the middle of the floor, that could be opened and let the heat of the exhaust pipe warm the cabin area.
Increasing the ratio of air to fuel (known as a 'lean' mixture) will result in hotter combustion gases and less power. However the exhaust will contain less Carbon Monoxide.Increasing the amount of fuel (a 'rich' mixture') will result in cooler cobustion gases, more power, but overall it is less-...
Why when I fill my car with fuel would it be hard to start and As the tank runs down the car is easier to start?
I think you might have a slight case of vapor lock check to see if the vent hole in your gas cap is plugged............ as it get lower it gets air through the return lines and vac hoses to charcoal can and such......... I think.......But i would check cap first.
What would make the heat blow out of the defrost vents and not the front vents of a 1995 Cadillac Sedan Deville?
The moveable "baffle" inside the dashboard is not redirecting the air flow as it should. It's operated either by vacuum or an electric motor, in either case, repair is going to require the removal of the dashboard.

There is a possibility of moisture building up in the tank due to the normal high humidity associated with warm weather.
Give us the application.
When you turn off your 2001 expedition a high pitch sound comes from the fuel tank opening the fuel cap allows the pressure relief is this normal?
There'll be some pressure relief, as the fuel system is pressurized - however, the high pitch sound seems to indicate that there's too much pressure in the fuel system. There's a possibility that the breather on your fuel tank is clogged.

By stating 'following components' i would assume you provided a list. Theoryetically, all electronic components can be tested for ohms (resistance). Factory specifications would be required to assess wether the readings taken fall within parameters of the specific component.
Sun -> plants -> animals -> oil -> fuel -> tank. This is just a basic answer until someone gives a more in-depth one.
You would like to know reasons a heater core could go bad or be damaged say in an accident On a Jeep Cherokee Limited 1995.?
without knowing the extent of the damage I can only say that any impact causing damage to any of the hoses, fittings or in the area of the heater core can make it leak or prevent coolant from flowing through it.
go to most modern parts stores and they will have the tool that they can read the codes in your car and tell you why it's on. it's typically free too. just call ahead to see if they do it.

The normal pressure range of an air brake system is determined by the points where the air compressor is turned on (cut-in pressure) and turned off (cut-out pressure).Note: Cut-out pressure is normally 138 to 173 kPa (20 to 25 psi) above the cut-in pressure.
A 2016, F-250 XL, 4+4, reg cab, 8ft bed will have a 35 US gal fuel capacity.
A system of equations is called an inconsistent system of equations if there is no solution because the lines are parallel.A dependent system of equations is when the same line is written in two different forms so that there are infinite solutions.
They produce zero emissions from the tailpipe and can deliver 300 miles or more per tank of fuel.They can be refilled as fast — or faster — than a conventional car with a 15-gallon gas tank.After extensive testing, researchers say they are as safe to drive as gasoline cars.

Bear in mind that a 'bendy bus' is so called because of the repetition of 'b' in an informal word (bendy) in the English language. Other languages will have different amusing co-incidences.
One would most likely purchase a small car while on the Buyacar website. A Ford, Chevy, or GMC would be the highest purchased cars since they are not foreign.
Yes, it will fit with modifications. The motor mounts will need to be changed, and you may need to have custom headers built. If the car was originally a 6 cylinder you will need a larger radiator, and the transmission mounts and drive shaft will have to be changed.
