Radiator, Thermostat and Pressure Cap

Most modern vehicles have aluminum radiators. These radiators are created by brazing thin aluminum fins to flattened aluminum tubes. The coolant flows through many tubes mounted in a parallel arrangement. The fins conduct the heat from the tubes before it is sent off to cool in the air flowing around in the radiator.

Engine Sensors used by ECU to Control

the fuel injectors can all open at the same time -- or each one can open just before the intake valves do (this is called sequential multi-port fuel injection). If the driver makes a sudden change, the sequential system responds faster because it only has to wait only until the next intake valve opens, and not the next complete...
