Identifying The Causes of Overheating

Some overheating problems aren’t related to the cooling system at all. Other circumstances that can cause a vehicle to overheat include lack of oil, a blown head gasket, and transmission problems. If the cooling system seems to be in good order after you check it and do the maintenance work in this chapter, investigate these possibilities :

  • Late timing : If you haven’t tuned and timed your engine recently, late timing may be causing it to overheat by making the spark plugs fire the fuel/air mixture after the piston moves back down from the top of its stroke. When the spark plugs fire too late to allow all the gases to burn properly, more heat burdens your cooling system. Late timing alone doesn’t cause a car to overheat by more than a few degrees, but coupled with other problems, it can bring the engine temperature to a critical point. The remedy is simple: Just check your timing and adjust it.

Suzuki Mengembangkan Diesel

Suzuki Mengembangkan Diesel
Pabrikan Suzuki  sedang mengambil sebuah keputusan besar dalam mengembangkan mesin diesel baru. Selama ini pabrikan asal Jepang tersebut selalu mengandalkan Fiat untuk memasok mesin-mesin diesel yang digunakan untuk produk-produk Suzuki.

Dilansir Autoevolution, Senin (16/12/13), mesin diesel pertama yang akan dibangun oleh pabrikan berlambang huruf S ini adalah mesin diesel turbo berkapasitas 800cc, dua silinder. Rencananya mesin ini akan digunakan untuk model pikap kecil, hatchback, saloons, dan kemungkinan SUV kompak.

Namun untuk langkah awal sepertinya Suzuki akan fokus menguji mesin disel kecilnya ini untuk kendaraan niaga Pikap Y9T yang akan dirilis pada 2015. Jika mesin diesel tersebut benar-benar terbukti tangguh, kuat, dan effisien maka Suzuki siap membenamkan mesin diesel tersebut untuk mobil penumpang.

Selanjutnya adalah membangun sebuah mesin diesel berkapasitas 1.500 cc, empat silinder. Mesin diesel baru ini rencananya akan dibenamkan untuk model small SUV atau SUV kompak, dan akan dirilis pada 2016.

Mesin diesel baru Suzuki ini akan dikembangkan oleh Maruti Suzuki. Mesin diesel ini adalah penggabungan antara dua mesin diesel kecil berkapasitas 800 cc, dan akan di downsize di bawah 1.500 cc untuk mendapatkan pajak yang lebih murah di India.
