You need to go to the highway and drive for 15-20min on speed 110/120km/h to burn the gas and oil deposit in the particullar filter. After that it should be fine. You need to do this every once in a while...

Trouble code P0410 with many others


P0410 code is for secondary AIR injection system. this injects air into the exhaust system to lower emissions, its pointless and wont effect your vehicles performance. It doesn't make the car any more efficient it just "dilutes" the exhaust emissions

Water 4 fuel HHO


A water-fuelled car is a automobile that is claimed to use water as its fuel or produces fuel from water onboard, with no other energy input. Water-fuelled cars have been mentioned in newspapers, popular science magazines, local news coverage, and the internet (YouTube); at least some of the claims were found to be tied to investment frauds. This article focuses on vehicles which purport to extract their energy directly from water, a process which would violate the first and/or second law of thermodynamics

In addition to claims of cars that run exclusively on water, there have also been claims that burning hydrogen or oxyhydrogen in addition to petrol or diesel fuel increases mileage. Around 1970, Yull Brown developed technology which allegedly allows cars to burn fuel more efficiently while improving emissions. In Brown's design, a hydrogen oxygen mixture (so-called "Brown's Gas") is generated by the electrolysis of water, and then fed into the engine through the air intake system. Whether the system actually improves emissions or fuel efficiency is debated. Similarly, Hydrogen Technology Applications claims to be able increase fuel efficiency by bubbling "Aquyen" into the fuel tank.
A number of websites exist promoting the use of oxyhydrogen (often called "HHO"), selling plans for do-it-yourself electrolysers or entire kits with the promise of large improvements in fuel efficiency. According to a spokesman for the American Automobile Association, "All of these devices look like they could probably work for you, but let me tell you they don't."

2003 Chevy Suburban - runs ok , have truoble code po-135 concernig 02 sensor - need code explained ?


The O2 sensor is primarily to help with emissions. It measures the amount of oxygen in the exhaust enabling adjusting the fuel air ratio to make sure the amount of oxygen is just right to burn up all of the fuel. This perfect scenario is what is needed to enable the catalytic converter to operate efficiently. 3-Way catalytic converters actually work amazingly when provided exhaust with no unburned hydrocarbons and no excess oxygen. This is what is called a closed loop solution. The vehicle will also be equipped with an open loop solution - a solution that does not use the O2 sensors. This may have a minor effect on fuel mileage but the vehicle should run without much trouble.

What would cause 1996 Fprd Explorer to overheat theres no leaks in Radiator or hoses and i recently replaced thermostat.


Only a few general concepts, keep in mind that the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve is an integral part of a vehicles emissions control systems. It operates under the premise of lowering combustion chamber temperatures to reduce the amount of pollutants created by the combustion process. Being closely tied to the combustion process, this valve's operation has direct effect on the overall performance of the engine. Poor or faulty operation of the EGR valve can result in several notable symptoms and leads to increased pollutant emissions.

Poor Idle: An improperly closing EGR valve will act as a vacuum leak, disrupting the correct fuel and air mixture, causing a lean mixture condition. This results in misfiring cylinders and poor engine idle.

Overheating: The basic function of the EGR valve is to introduce exhaust gases into the combustion chamber at specific and controlled rates, lowering combustion temperatures, and lowering pollutant emissions. An EGR valve that does not open properly fails to introduce sufficient amounts of exhaust gases, causing combustion chamber temperatures to rise, leading to overheating of the engine.

Poor Fuel Economy: A sticking EGR valve will not open and close at the proper rate, leading to a reduction in the efficiency of the combustion process due to the lean fuel-air mixture it causes. This results in the engine having to work harder to perform the same amount of work, requiring more fuel to do it. On-board computer systems can also try to compensate for this lean condition by introducing additional fuel to the mixture, further increasing fuel consumption.

Increased Emissions: EGR valves are designed to lower the emission of pollutants from the combustion process. This is done by lowering the temperature of the combustion process through the introduction of exhaust gases into the fuel and air mixture. Lowered combustion temperatures result in more efficient burning of the fuel and air mixture, and less pollutants in the exhaust emissions. An improperly operating EGR valve will not correctly lower combustion temperatures, causing noxious emissions to increase, which can cause a vehicle to fail emissions inspection.

Test cylinders compression and check if some fault code is stored in the PCM 9computer).

Emissions workshop


Emissions Workshop means that the fuel / air ratio is incorrect. There are many reasons for this problem. The ONLY way to be certain is to have the OBD codes scanned. This will show the problem straight away. If the car appears to be running ok, you may have a problem with an oxygen sensor....but do the scan first. It is the quicker and cheaper option.
Good luck with it

Check exhaust emission control system and catalytic converter.
These items have been integrated into a highly effective system which controls exhaust emissions while maintaining good driveability and fuel economy.
