The Math of Motors

Believe it or not, most things can be broken down into a mathematical equation of some sort. Pi is equal to MC squared. Two parts hydrogen and two parts of oxygen are water. Automobiles and Lakewood, NJ equal Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep. Likewise, your vehicle — in fact any vehicle that travels on land, sky or water — has a basic equation: fuel plus air means movement.

What Movement Moves a Vehicle?

Land vehicles turn gasoline into power by combining it with air inside metal cylinders within the engine block. Engines depend on a chemical reaction from burning fuel in air which produces heat energy. This is called combustion. In the past, an engine part called the carburetor would do the mixing of fuel and air to make this energy from heat. The carburetor is a tube that pushes air and fuel into the engine in varying amounts to produce energy when the engine is at different temperatures. #Carburetors were actually invented by Mercedes founder Karl Benz.

What Do We Use Now?

In today’s vehicles there is a fuel injection system to regulate the air and fuel mixture which makes sure your engine is working optimally from the moment you turn the key in the ignition. Today when the valve lifts, an electronic injector sends fuel through a spray tip into an intake manifold which is called a multi-port system. Or, a direct injection system shoots fuel directly into the cylinder.  It still takes the combustion of fuel and air to make the vehicle move, but it is now more efficient and cleaner.
