Turn it off?

Seriously, you can try upgrading the exhaust (search for super trapp), or build a small enclosure to go around it (but still provide plenty of air flow).

BioDiesel has been known to quiet injector noise, but double check with manufacturer first. Howell's Diesel supplement can also help with injector noise, and keeps fuel from gelling in winter, has an algaecide in it, and is decent for fuel storage.

Mk3 mondeo engine loud ticking like grinding all the time.just had problem with injectors.had all 4 replaced.the garage says piston slap


Is this a new noise your hearing? If your mechanic has correctly diagnosed the noise find more info here:

http://www.autos.ca/auto-tech/auto-tech-noisy-engine-it-might-be-piston-slap/

The distinctive noise of a diesel engine is variably called diesel clatter, diesel nailing, or diesel knock. Diesel clatter is caused largely by the diesel combustion process; the sudden ignition of the diesel fuel when injected into the combustion chamber causes a pressure wave. Engine designers can reduce diesel clatter through: indirect injection; pilot or pre-injection; injection timing; injection rate; compression ratio; turbo boost; and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR).

Guys I am in the position to buy a Homelite Generator 1100watt 4 stroke its a shelf demo, but the noise decible seems to be a bit load at 93, my 2 stroke is only 91 my main concern is will this be nioisy...


Hello,

The difference between 91 & 93 dB is negligible. If the genset is a good deal, take it, and then look to improve the dB dampening. Most all gensets can have additional silencing added to them. Even bolt-on systems are often threaded beneath the gasket surface allowing for improvements. Either way, you are probably OK, and will not notice a significant difference in dBs. Also, it may be possible to mount the generator in such a manner as to have the exhaust facing away from your caravan, reducing the noise even further. Isolating the generator frame from the drawbar will also significantly reduce the transmitted noise. You may need to give this additional thought; motor mounts for auto engines strike me as a possibility.
Best regards, --W/D--

Low power


Hi ,
firstly i would do a full service on it , all filter and fluids , oil/coolant water,fuel filter(s) and air filters
pay attention to any water seperators , check all fuel line connectors and unions are tight and in good order ( drawing a small amount of air into the fuel system if often the cause of ''a lack of power '')
check your diesel as it absorbs moisture and can severley effect the running of an engine .
if this has no effect
get a rag /goggles and the right size open ended spanner and slacken each fuel injector nut whilst the engine is running , listen for the engine noise going down , if it dosent this means the injector is deffective ( might need replacing or cleaning ) do this to each injector in turn , be very careful as you do this , the diesel is at 200bar pressure and can injected you ( hence the rag )
a final one is the fuel lift pump may be deffective , they often partially work and starve the engine at maximum revs , depending on your engine this will be an electric one or driven directly from the engine block , just follow the fuel lines from your diesel tank ,.
hope this helps

Genset can not pick up once main electricity supply is off.


The controller circuit card needs to be replace. This is
the one that senses if and when power is shut off. This
will automatically start the engines.

I'm looking at buying a virtually unused Clarke G90 generator but am concerned at the potential noise level. Does anybody know how many db it runs at please ??


A 90KW Genset produces at least 130dB's out in the open. It can produce more depending on the location. Some locations may produce an echo. I recommend you look into a sound antenuated enclosure, which will reduce the sound by more than 60%.
