The P0505 code – Idle Control System Malfunction means that the engine computer cannot regulate the idle speed properly, or the actual idle speed varies from the target idle speed by a certain amount. The accompanied symptoms may include difficulty
The power steering system uses an additional power source to provide steering assistance when the driver turns the steering wheel. Key Component — Power Steering Pump The power steering pump provides the hydraulic pressure necessary to operate the power steering
Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) A Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) is one of the components of a car electronic fuel injection system. A mass air flow sensor is installed inside the intake air duct between the air filter and the intake
Mazda P1180 Fuel delivery system-low DETECTION CONDITION • Fuel run dry strategy triggered • Faults for checks in PCV controlled mode – Minimum rail pressure exceeded POSSIBLE CAUSE • Fuel empty • Fuel supply pump malfunction • Fuel pressure sensor characteristic malfunction • Fuel metering control
The wheel bearing is contained within the hub. It allows the wheel to travel around the axle with minimal wear and friction.
The area in the cylinder head where air/fuel is ignited to create power.
An engine cooling fan that uses a heat-activated, viscous-fluid clutch which turns the fan on and off as needed.
The system which maintains the electrical charge in your vehicle’s battery. The charging system consists of the alternator, voltage regulator and battery.
A special gauge used by technicians to measure how much pressure a cylinder can create.
A hydraulic clutch uses a hydraulic circuit between the clutch pedal and clutch fork to control clutch engagement.
The process by which the air/fuel mixture burns within an engine to create power.
The friction material lined plate that delivers power from the engine to the transmission.
A part of the ignition system. The coil takes the electrical voltage supplied by the battery and amplifies it many times until it is powerful enough to fire a spark plug.
CV (constant velocity) joints are part of a car’s driveline. They allow a wheel to rotate freely in any direction while still receiving power from the axle.
Cylinders are the large round holes in the engine block that contain the pistons. The pistons travel up and down in the cylinders to create the engine‘s power.
The cylinder head is the top part of the engine. It often contains the valves, and for cars with overhead cams, it contains the camshafts as well. The cylinder head also forms the top part of the combustion chamber.
A device in a carburetor which shuts off airflow so that the engine runs rich. This is necessary to start a cold engine.
A clutch is found on cars with manual transmissions. The clutch lets the driver deliver the torque of a spinning crank and smoothly engage it to the gearbox to make the car move. Without a clutch, it would be nearly
Carburetors are what all cars had prior to fuel injection. A carburetor takes air and fuel and mixes them in the right proportion to allow a car to run smoothly and powerfully. Some cars have multiple carburetors to allow for
