Why does a car engine overheat?Written by Jakob Jelling
There are many different reasons that can cause an engine overheat, but they all have in common three aspects. The three aspects which all engine overheat factors have in common are that they cause that heating system can not get rid of heat, they cause a loss of coolant or they directly cause too much heat in engine.
One first problem which might be cause of an engine overheat is a problem with radiator cap and pressure it holds. If radiator cap does not hold pressure correctly then coolant could boil and therefore engine would overheat. Another reason might be caused by thermostat failures; it is recommendable that you check it.
The car engine might also overheat due to coolant leaks such as those from radiator, hoses, water pump, freeze plugs or any others. Also, problems in water pump could be cause and therefore you should check it and replace it in case it is needed.
Some other reasons by which car engine could overheat are problems in exhaust system which you can discover by checking vacuum readings, pipes and converter. Besides, you should also make sure that radiator hose has not collapsed and ignition timing is working properly.
Formula One Cars - Unsurpassed Technology at Its FinestWritten by Michael Walker
Formula One Racing is, quite simply, paramount of karting. It is professional form of sport in its entirety. Formula One is an international phenomenon, a media conglomerate that rakes in millions and millions of dollars a year from advertising, sponsorship, and broadcast revenues. Professional drivers with millionaire bank accounts race these majestic kart marvels that are unprecedented, flush with technological luxuries – everything from hard to produce lightweight frames that glide machine to tires with unsurpassed grooving style that exemplify powerful movement on circuit.
There is no sport that bests epitomizes term “global sport” like Formula One racing. Many countries serve as active participants in shaping professional karting scene – for example, Malaysia is a hot spot for racing (Fernando Alonso, a Spanish-born driver under Team Renault recently won a race there) and Italy plays a vital role in designing and manufacturing first class, top-of-the-line karts. Drivers and racing personalities hail from all parts of word – you have charismatic and popular Italian Renault boss Flavio Briatore, handsome young 23 year old racing prodigy in Fernando Alonso who stars in a Renault Megane commercial with his pet pig, and one of highest earning sports figures in world history in Michael Schumacher. Rivalries are common in Formula One – adding edge of excitement with every zip of curve and nitrous boost of machine.
In order to better become acquainted with Formula One racing, we must understand its organization. Karting goes way beyond pitting 3 2-cycle engine machines against each other on an oval circuit. Formula One is divided into drivers & their respective teams. Under such trademark car companies like Renault, Ferrari, and Toyota – each driver has an assembling cast of staffers consisting of mechanics, engineers, and designers all working towards one goal: to make that speedster faster using all resources at their disposal. Headed by team bosses that are adept at creating sponsorship opportunities and assembling best cast for each team, Formula One employs finest specialists in business with backgrounds in computer and automobile – even specialists with aerospace experience! High end, (rare technology reserved for space projects) in some instances, create fastest and most efficient car possible. According to FI rules, racing teams must design, construct, and built their own karts from scratch. The staff is pride of each individual team – capable and able to win every 57 lap enduro race from Malaysia to Great Britain.
Formula One cars can be summed up in two words: technological marvels. These sleek, low riding gems ripping through laps at speeds topping 200 mph. consist of more than just a chassis, an engine, and four wheels. For starters, engine is located behind cockpit as opposed to standard automobiles. They consist of 10 cylinder engines that produce heat which propel kart forward. Team engineers are always looking into ways to make their engines more powerful. Currently, 1000 bhp (a scale for horsepower) has not been topped – it is up to teams to produce an engine which would fare well supporting speed as well as support chassis. And as we know, there is a snug open cockpit for Jarno Trulli to maneuver his machine in.
