    NOS stands for Nitrous Oxide System. Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a chemical compound used as an oxidizing agent to increase an internal combustion engine's power output by allowing more fuel to be burned than would normally be the case.

Hi there - My Honda fit automatic transmission - jerks when it is transitioning through gears. I have had a mechanic look at it and another gear box has been installed - however (although much better than...


Ask your mechanics to look into these things: Plug Coils. (Pic below)
Better replace with Used ones (Japan made) from half-cuts than to buy brand new genuine Honda (Thai made) because the latters only last me for less than 18 months ! (Not to mention costing an arm and a leg !)VTEC engine required 4 nos; I-DSI needed double (8 nos) due to 8 spark plugs within.......all the best, Billy.

What is the meaning of nos?


NOS is Nitros Oxide or Laughing gas. Basically it is like pumping very cold oxygen into your motor which makes the petrol burn much faster ,hotter and cleaner . This delivers close to 90% of the power from your fuel instead of the usual 60%
This puts a HUGE load on pistons, conrods ,bearings and your transmission.
If you buy a nitrous kit for your car, all the relevant plumbing etc should be included , however I would suggest you talk to your local speed shop and engine rebuilder as to what mods you should do to your specific engine.
Personally I would buy a spare engine to play with , then, when it explodes you can put the old one back in while you are rebuilding your silly motor.
Endless fun and a great way to spend your money.

Check engine light came on. giving codes P1035 and P1055. whats wrong with it. it it a 2004 jeep grand cherekee Laredo


I'm sorry I don't have more for you. I could not locate a dtc for "P1055", but did find some info for "P1035". It is for the bank 1, sensor 1 O2 sensor heater circuit. I would check fuse nos. 16 and 34 in the underhood power dist. center first. Next I would look at the connections to the O2 sensors, you should have 4 total. The catalytic convertors, yes there are two, are connected directly to the exhaust manifold, which is a split manifold. Cylinder nos. 1-3 empty into the front section while cylinders 4-6 empty into the rear section. There should be an O2 sensor before each convertor and after each convertor.
