What you need to know about Hybrid Vehicle Emissions

Hybrid vehicle emissions today are getting close to or even lower than the recommended level set by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). The recommended levels they suggest for a typical passenger vehicle should be equated to 5.5 metric tons of CO2. The three most popular hybrid vehicles, Honda Civic, Honda Insight and Toyota Prius, set […]

What to Do When Your Hybrid Car’s Battery Dies

Finding yourself on the side of the road with a car that’s out of gas or out of juice has always been frustrating. But with conventional vehicles, the fix has traditionally been simple: If the battery dies, get a jump (and recharge it later), and if you run out of gas, get more by any […]

Understanding Hybrid Electric Vehicle

A hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) is a type of hybrid vehicle and electric vehicle that combines a conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) system with an electric propulsion system (hybrid vehicle drive-train). The presence of the electric power-train is intended to achieve either better fuel economy than a conventional vehicle or better performance. There is a […]

Misfiring in an engine-Causes and Diagnosis

  Misfire is a common drivability problem that may or may not be easy to diagnose, depending on the cause. A misfiring cylinder in a four-cylinder engine is, pardon the pun, hard to miss. The loss of 25% of the engine’s power output is the equivalent of a horse trying to run on three legs. […]

Abnormal Engine Noise-Knocking

  Knocking (also knock, detonation, spark knock, pinging or pinking) in spark-ignition internal combustion enginesoccurs when combustion of the air/fuel mixture in the cylinder does not start off correctly in response to ignition by thespark plug, but one or more pockets of air/fuel mixture explode outside the envelope of the normal combustion front. The fuel-air […]

What determine the life span of my car?
