The question asked most often by people searching for a used Korean engine is “how many kms on the engine?” This is a legitimate question, but really not the most important one. Far more important is the quality assurance measures a company takes before selling you an engine. What kind of inspection does the company perform?


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And most important “How does the company test the engine?”

 

For a quick analysis of a used engines state and quality you can measure cylinder and oil pressure.

Cylinder Pressure a pressure gauge is connected to the engine cylinder at the spark plug opening. Pressure is measured at each cylinder in terms of pounds per square inch (e.g. 180 psi). The variance between cylinder readings should not be greater than 10%. If it is, a leak-down test would be performed to locate a potential pressure leak in the rings, valves, block or head gasket. Both of these tests are done when the engine is not running.

 

Oil Pressure—proper oil pressure in a used engine is a great indicator that the internal components are in good shape. Certainly an engine cannot ship with poor oil pressure and in fact much more detailed inspection would be required if low pressure was detected in a used engine.

A great deal of time and effort should be invested in each used engine being shipped.
Our Supplier in Korea is assuring the quality and condition of the engine before they send the container to us. And it is the best way to answer the question about mileage

 

 

TEN TIPS for you to Drive more efficiently

 

The way you drive is not only important for you, your families and others. It also matters to our environment.
The European Petroleum Industry and the European Commission offer efficient driving tips to help you reduce fuel consumption and contribute to cleaner and safer life-styles. We hope you will find these tips helpful.

 

1. Keep your car well serviced and check the oil level regularly.

 Correctly maintained cars can operate more efficiently and help reduce CO2 emissions.

 

2. Check your tyre pressure every month.

 Under-inflated tyres can increase fuel consumption by up to 4%.

 

3. Remove unnecessary weight from your boot or back seats.

 The heavier the car, the harder the engine has to work and the more fuel it consumes.

 

4. Close your windows, especially at higher speeds, and remove empty roof racks.

 This will reduce wind resistance and can lower your fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 10%.

 

5. Use air conditioning only when necessary.

 Unnecessary use increases fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 5%.

 

6. Start driving soon after starting the engine and turn off the engine when stationary for more than one minute.

 Modern engines enable you to just get in and go, thus reducing fuel consumption.

 

7. Drive at reasonable speeds and above all, drive smoothly.

 Every time you accelerate or brake suddenly, your engine uses more fuel and produces more CO2.

 

8. When accelerating, change up gears as early as possible.

 Higher gears are more economical in terms of fuel consumption.

 

9. Try to anticipate traffic flow.

 Look at the traffic as far ahead as possible in order to avoid unnecessary stopping and starting within the flow of traffic.

 

10. Consider car sharing for work or leisure.

 You will help reduce congestion and fuel consumption.
