How does frequent stop start Impact the car's Engine?
|   Monday, October 13, 2014
Looking at the current situation where saving fuel is one of the biggest concerns of car makers, there are several modern technologies are used to save fuel in cars. But have you ever thought about how much does it impact your car's longevity?

Stop start is done in a fraction of a second and these are used frequently while people face heavy traffic. But you must be concerned about how dangerous it can be for the engine of your vehicle.

An electric starter is used in all types of cars that may be the fastest or most powerful.
Few are known as TS which means Tandem Solenoid and it is used to cope better in these situations when the engine gets the command to stop and acceleration paddle is pressed again.

Sometimes a driver decides to stop the car but again some circumstances make him/ her to change mind for example when traffic forces you go ahead without stopping. At that time, engine faces a difficult situation when it commits to stop it but spin is still on in order to avoid the crunch. It makes a solenoid to fire up the electric starter to synch the speed with engine before gear is engaged by the second one.

All the basic rules related to starting gear should be followed completely to give your car a long durability. But since there is no way to control the number of appearance of stop start hence it can make increased engine to wear unless some valid steps are taken which can prevent it.

As said by Gerhard Arnold, the designer of Federal Mogul, a car which has no automatic facility for stop start is expected to run up to about 50,000 events of stop starts during its entire life. But in case of automatically maintained stop start cars come to stand still because they are activated each time which makes their figure rise up to a large extent.

This is a big step for those who pose the life and durability of car's engine with bigger challenges. Crankshaft is one of the heaviest parts of the engine and also it plays a very vital role. During the spins with large number of precisions with ground journals it supports the length running at plain and main bearings which is without any rollers or ball bearing but only smooth metal.

These above bearings are considered as main bearings of engine and the effects are greater on back bearing immediately aside the starting motor. During running time of the engine, the main bearing surface and crankshaft do not touch but a very thin oil film separates them. Under deep pressure and extreme conditions it works superbly making the crankshaft spin properly. This hydrodynamic lubrication process plays a vital role in engine.

For engine's life it is a great challenge to overcome the problems occurred by frequent stop start. But thanks to engineers' mechanism which created lubrication technology and low friction enabled bearing which give a driver a tension free driving experience even in traffics.
