This a general topic. Everyone who owns a car or any kind of vehicle, wants to get maximum from that at a desirable cost .
Their are many things which should be checked on a proper basis.
This is the main part of any vehicle, it should be clean and should be checked on a regular basis, mainly the carburator part is the basic thing.
carburator is a part in engine ,which helps in proper mixing of air and fuel.so as to get a better and sound performance.
You can write a good hub out of this topic. You can expand it more to tackle its details.
Welcome to Hubpages!
I disagree with you on 'the main part' of any vehicle
If you ask ANY Car Seat.... You will find that the Bum that drives the Car is the main part! This even relates to cars without motors!
But Hey... Thanks for finding this site and 'cluttering' it with useless information
I'm not sure if you've heard of this little thing called fuel injection or not, but it really seems to be catching on. Do I need to clean that? If so How?
Say I did have an older car with a carb on it, How would I clean it? Would you clean a one ballel Webber differently than a four barrel Holley? And how about two barrel Rochesters and double pumpers? I'm in real trouble over here. I'm not sure what I've got or how to clean it. You are my only hope Sam331. Help!
My advice would be:
1) Have your car serviced regularly - it's probably cheaper than you think, most dealers now do fixed priced servicing and you can always shop around. I used to do my own but modern cars need the computer diagnostics that only garages have.
2) Check your tyre pressures regularly - you can get digital tyre pressure gauges for a small outlay and get in the habit of doing daily visual inspections.
3) Don't carry around unnecessary items (I don't mean the wife)I mean all those things left in the boot because you can't find anywhere else for them.
4) Check oil, brake fluid and water levels weekly.
5) If you are not mechanicaly minded ask people who are - most will love giving their own "expert" information.
Enjoy your driving and try to do it courteously and safely.
The best advice would be to follow the manufacturers schedule of maintenance using only the fluids recommended by the same.
yea arthur fontes are absolutely right...you should check your repair book that comes with the vehicle. because manufacturer has done an intense research for their products.
if necessary, buy a repair manual book (and if you know about engine and want to repair yourself,maybe).
for vehicle expert, they could disobey manufacturers recommendation for fluids, etc. they know what are best for their "toys". for the best performance.
There are tons of things you can do, but a lot of them are specific to what car you have.
As mentioned before, basic maintenance is key to getting the most performance you car is capable of.
The basic idea, is:
more air + more fuel = more power
Getting more fuel is simple:
Fuel injected: bigger fuel pump, injectors, fuel management
Carbed: bigger carbs, bigger fuel pump, tuning
Getting more air:
supercharger, turbocharger, or nitrous oxide injection
higher compression, more aggressive cams / timing, port / polish for better airflow into the motor.
Getting rid of air:
this is important for any type of vehicle as it takes in more air and fuel. A high flow exhaust system will take care of this problem.
That's the basics for making more power, but getting that power to the ground is just as important.
Make sure you upgrade the suspension and tires to handle the additional power. A set of wider lightweight rims will help immensely.
I have hotted up literally hundreds of motors.
If you want more horsepower you must work to formulae.
If you increase induction flow, you must increase exhaust flow, if you change camshaft lift, you need to change jets or injectors, valves and so it goes.
Most cars that are "hotted up" by amateurs actually lose horsepower. The only way to establish this is to put the vehicle on a dyno before modifications, then again on completion of the modifications.
All modifications are a compromise between power and longevity.
New cars are easy. Just remap the computer!
