Question about 2007 Ford E-150 XLT Wagon

1 Answer

Sir i m very sorry to disturb u but i m simply an engineering student of 7th semester n my project is on electronic governor so i just want to know how the electronic governor is efficient over the mechanical one plz if u can give some explainations.sir its a project not a product .actually wat i mean to say u dat books i have studied so far has not explained in details about governor mechanism. As an eg due to variation in load in an engine governor supplies the fuel but wat about the load, why it changes ? Say a vehicle is moving at certain speed n we want to increase its speed so how will the governor work at that time or let the vehicle faces an inclination so how da governor function at dat time or let the vehicle faces a downward slope so in dat case we have to apply brakes to mantain is initial speed as the load on the governor decreases . SO AS WE ARE PERFORMING the project on electronic governor we need to write a microcontroller program n i m not getting da basic concepts cleared.And one more question sir why torque variation occurs in an engine ? plz if u can give some explaination or sugestion regarding our project dat will be highly honoured. and how da electronic governor is better in comparison with a mechanical one based on suppose sensitiveness etc . plz send any kind of information or pdf files if u have

A mechanical gov can use springs or fly weights to control the amount of fuel delivered at a given rpm. an electronic does basically the same thing but with the use of speed sencers and cervos that can control fuel, spark, and timeing. the first is a straight forward approach and has worked well over the years. but the secound is more precise and adjustable withe the stroke of a key board. as to which is better, that depends on the application. mechanical works off engine rpms and takes abuse well but can only regulate speed useing rpms so if you have more gears the faster you can go. where as the electronic uses speed sencors that pull info from the trans or wheels and will only let you do the speed set by the computer

My model 1431 diesel engine can not reach full rpms .and under a load starts dieing until the engine load is released.then trys to rebuild rpms.why.I already replaced the fuel filter.

the operation of a governor system in all pumps is to remain at full throttle until the governor control reaches a predetermined setting
so it is at full throttle when stopped , starts and the governor setting is idle so it runs at idle until you change that setting in which case it moves back towards full throttle again
I explain it like this so that it can be understood that from your description you will see that there is a problem in the governor control system
As governor control is critical in a diesel engine I suggest that you seek a proper diagnosis from an accredited professional diesel pump repair shop as it is very possible that the pump or electronic control will have to be inspected / repaired

It likely has a governor which limits speed. Used on rentals alot. Was it a rental at one time?
Read the sheet on this page under "Check Operation" F1 F2 F3 "Governor cut-out pressurekPa (psi) Governor cut-in pressurekPa (psi) Verify warning lamp and alarm operation (F-650/F-750 Only)"and notice the governor."

See it (blue box I drew over it on pic below) on pgs. 328-330 of manual (takes FOREVER to load! Its a big pdf).
here it is (OK so its below)

Pg.396 says under 7. "7.Installation of a gasoline engine speed governor is permissible, provided the governor design is compatible with each respective throttle body for the individual engine application and it does not exceed specified engine maximum RPM. It must also meet all noise and engine emission requirements. Governor installations may affect electronically controlled transmissions. Contact Ford Truck Body Builders Advisory Service before installing."

Since its saying it CAN be installed then it obviously can be uninstalled to be like original.

Get it removed? :)

Kind Regards,

The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type. Also engine mechanical problems ca cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms

Timing belt felll off on highway,will there be a lot of damage 2000 volvos-80

Volvo recommends for Volvo S80, changing the timing belt every 105,000 miles. Needless to say, they are pretty religious about this now.
The B20, B21, B23, and B230 engines are non-interference engines, meaning that the camshaft can be rotated independently of the crankshaft and no damage will result to the engine. That is, if the timing belt breaks, the valves will not hit the pistons; the engine will simply stop.
On the other hand, the B234 16-valve engines and any of the other Volvo multi valve engines are interference engines. Loss of the timing belt in these engines will result in severe or fatal engine damage.
Your car might be fitted with:
2.8L (VIN 90, 6th & 7th digit, B6284T eng, turbo)
2.9L (VIN 94, 6th & 7th digit, B6294S eng)

1995 ford fairmont wont rev past 4000 rpm

After 1993 the OBD 2 EEC system in most cars provides an electronic governor which keep the engine from over reving. However, with the proper factory tool the computer can be programmed to a higher governor limit.
