Assuming your Alternator (generator is now working)

Replacing the thermostat at a stretch could cause the excessive burning gas if you are certain you noticed it after you removed it.

One item that could possibly cause the car to burn more gas is the temperature of the car. The computer requires the engine to be a certain temperature and it can run off at lower temperatures.

Install a new thermostat and seal and retest. You cannot tell if you have a good or bad thermostat and i do not believe in the service manual tests. It it has been over 50k+ miles, I suggest you replace the thermostat, which is cheap protection.

HHO SEYSYEM


HHO does not work. The amount of air the engine sucks in throughout the RPM range is far beyond what any HHO setup can produce. You will lose power and gas mileage because the HHO system pulls energy away from the ignition spark.

Where is the thermostat on 2002 toyota corolla


I could only find for a 1.8, shouldn't be much difference.


  • Mechanic's toolset, including a full socket set, wrenches and screwdrivers
  • Replacement thermostat, new or rebuilt
  • New gasket for thermostat
    • 1 Remove the cover on the right side of the under-engine. Drain the engine coolant into a sealable container.
    • 2 Take out the fan and the V-belt on the generator, then remove the generator assembly. Remove the two nuts that hold the water inlet in place and then pull the water inlet.
    • 3 Lift out the thermostat and remove the gasket. Clean the gasket mating surfaces thoroughly of dirt and old gasket material.
    • 4 Put a new gasket on the thermostat, then install the thermostat so that the jiggle valve is on top. Make sure the thermostat is set within 10 degrees to either side of the prescribed position.
    • 5 Connect the water inlet and set the two nuts in place. Tighten the nuts to 8 foot pounds.
    • 6 Set the generator assembly in place. Refill the engine with coolant. Start the engine and check for leaks. Replace the right side cover under the engine.
Tips & Warnings
  • Dogs and cats are attracted will drink coolant left in open containers or puddled on the floor and ingestion is often fatal. Drain coolant into a sealable container. Reuse the coolant unless it's contaminated or more than 4 or 5 years old.

My engine light is on in my 1993 Toyota Paseo and drinks gas


Check engine light can be multiple things. You have to bring it in to find the cause.

Is there any economical feasibility for brown gas generators ?


Yes, they do produce hydrogen and are easy enough to make.
Newer EFI vehicles with oxygen sensors located at intake as well as exhaust, have to be manipulated to get the full effect of your HHO production... that was a little trickier. I made a pot switchbox to trick the sensor signal to my engine's computer.
An older vehicle with a carburator is another matter... direct HHO into the intake.
Does it increase fuel efficiency? Yes. Any combustable added is gained effeciency.
How much efficiency, is to be determined by your car's performance and your driving habits.
Youtube has some good videos and how-to info if you're interested.
Is it worth "buying" this info? I wouldn't...
I think it should be free! We all want a greener planet.

HHO ISSUES


Hi Brknme,

Need a bit more info about your problem. Just so I know we are talking about the same thing on the same page.

Are you referring to the Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI)?

If so, does the vehicle run? What symptoms are there?

And what HHO issues do you have? These initials usually refer to a Hydrogen/Oxygen generator and the ratio of the volume of gas produced from water ( 2:1 2 parts Hydrogen one part Oxygen). Also the optimum ratio for combustion.

Please comment back with your response.

Got some problems with my hho


The HHO generator uses low DC voltage to produce Hydrogen and Oxygen from water.

Fresh water isn't the best conductor of electricity so an electrolyte of some sort is usually added to the water.

A safety tip: This was probably included with your unit, but it doesn't hurt to cover it again.
  • Wear safety glasses, good ones.
  • Dont smoke or have any ignition source while checking the unit. HHO is produced at the optimum ratio for combustion, and by that I mean COMBUSTION. This is the same fuel in the same ratio in that big orange tank the space shuttle rides on. The slightest leak can be dangerous. Be aware of this. Ok?
A side effect of these units is they produce heat. The water gets pretty hot, not boiling, but hot. That would be a way to see if its working.

You haven't described the unit, volume of water and electrolyte used. That would be helpful.

As a rule, if the plates are covered in water, if the electrolyte has been introduced, if it has power then it's working and you won't notice any difference at all.

Unless the unit you got is the super deluxe multi-cell model, the volume of HHO produced per minute is only a small percentage of what the engine is sucking in. It's not going to supercharge your engine. It will however enhance the combustion of the gasoline, making it burn more efficiently while adding some combustion of its own.

Hopefully you kept track of your mileage before instrallation. Keep keeping track of your mileage and compare notes. That's when you'll notice the difference.

That difference will depend on the volume of HHO produced. That depends on the electrolytic agent, volume and temperature of the water.

I hope this helped somewhat

Hho no mpg increase on turbo diesel


Hi, try to hook up the hho gas hose into a vacuum line of the crank case (with t-connector) NOT directly b4 the turbo. That might help. Its not getting enough vacuum to "pull" the gas from the cell. How much hho production do you get right now? Greetings, ****

HHO GENERATOR


Please do some research before bothering with this bogus junk.  I am familiar with its generation and you cannot fit a generator under any hood that will produce enough gas to change your engine characteristics.
Take some time and look at the EPA's results with any of the claimed results for various gadgets:
EPA Fuel Saver reports  
Also, if you had a product to sell, wouldn't you be tempted to plant favorable 'test reports' all over the Internet?

HHO generator wiring


the hho generator power and ground does not go to the maf sensor. what you need is a maf /map regulator, but it has no connection with the generator. it is just helpfull by saving gas if a hho generator is installed. If you have o2 sensors in the exhaust pipe, you need a EFIE first!!! more questions, no problem, hydrotuning@gmail.com, greetings, ****

Hho generator


dont waste you time try to get your money back . ive worked with many of these and not a single one has made any difference. the volume of hydrogen that the generator produces isnt enough to help in fuel millage the alternator on your car cant put out the amperage required to make the quanty needed. alot of scams going on on this stuff right now. just watch your dollar. but since you have it you might as well try it and find out for yourself. i ssen them in the pcv line T in. and ive also see them just tapped into the air cleaner just above the throttle body. good luck and let me know if it works any better for you...
