System of injection of fuel of the petrol engine

The general information and security measures at work

The car is equipped with an electronic digital control system of the engine (DME/BOSCH-MOTRONIC).
The electronic control system of the engine allows to realize the following advantages:

- An exact dosage of fuel in any mode of operation that provides small fuel consumption at the high power.
- Reduction of content of harmful substances in the fulfilled gases thanks to exact dispensing of fuel and use of the catalytic converter.
- Self-diagnostics of a control system of the engine, provides a possibility of bystry troubleshooting. The control system of the engine has memory of malfunctions. If defect in use comes to light, then it is brought in memory of the device. If the engine has malfunctions, then by means of the special device it is possible to output their list allowing to reveal and eliminate defect independently. Address the Section Diagnostics of Malfunctions. Work it is desirable to carry out HUNDRED in conditions.

The control unit of the engine represents the minicomputer with high speed. It defines optimum time of injection and amount of injectable fuel. At the same time there is a coordination of operation of the control unit with other systems of the car, for example, to a control system of the check point or blocking from stealing.

Elements of a control system of the engine keeps the high performance for a long time and practically does not demand service. Replacements when carrying out maintenance demand only the air filter and spark plugs. Serious works on adjustment and repair demand use of difficult diagnostic units. Address the Section Diagnostics of Malfunctions.

Adjustment of speed of idling and concentration WITH within carrying out maintenance is not required.

Security measures at work with a control system of the engine / the petrol engine


The fuel system is under pressure! When opening system fuel emission is possible. Therefore the flowed-out fuel needs to be wiped with a rag. Vapors of gasoline are poisonous and is combustible. Use goggles. You monitor good ventilation of a workplace. Have the fire extinguisher.

For an exception of traumatizing people and/or damage of system of injection and ignition it is necessary to observe the following:

- Do not concern and do not disconnect ignition wires at the working engine or at the included starter.
- Disconnect and attach pipelines of system of injection and a wire of ignition, and also electric wires of devices of measurement only at the switched-off ignition.
- It is not allowed to work with electronic system of ignition to people with a warm stimulator.
- When checking a compression it is not allowed to make fuel injection.

At work with system of injection it is necessary to follow the general safety rules and purity, address the Section of the Security measure and the rule of respect for purity during the work with fuel system.
