>men drive recklessly and speed more than women hence why men are prone to higher deaths/fatalities on the road
>women are opposite of this and have both hands on the wheel, driver slower, and generally are safer


the same bullshit on this board. outright false statements

whenever there's an intersection women ALWAYS look away and keep driving expecting that you'll just let them pass, despite you clearly having the right of way. they look away when you're walking to cross the street and just think you'll stop and let her pass. even when merging lanes, they just look away and expect you to just move out of their way. none of this happens with males.

i see more women texting/calling on their phones than men. doesn't mean the male population aren't on their phones, but not as much as women.

to say that women aren't reckless is a fallacy.

1x fender bender = 1 accident
1x drive off the road and explode = 1 accident
An accident is an accident and not only that, women are so fucking clueless to what they are doing and can't read their surrounding so they are actually the activator in accidents most of the time.

Women accident count: 989617290834710298354720346987

Male accident count:
8999

Male going 10 above, minding his own business and following the traffic when... A woman who does not now left from right decides to thenk with breinhedd mugh thingk HERE I GOOO!!! TIEM FORE 8 lane change into the fast lane while signaling right even though she's forching her car at the speed of light in the other direction. 9 cars crash 8 of them men since men drive more and it's all her fault but she doesn't stop because she didn't flip her side view mirrors and she aligned the rear view mirror to act as a make-up mirror, so the men get raised insurance premium because they crashed because of her.

Statistics doesn't count fender benders from retards that can't even navigate their cars in parking lots, they only count the money costing accidents.
So for every accident a man makes there's thousands women make.

is this Somalia?

I replaced my fuel injectors the other day because my car has been sluggish as shit... Replaced rocker cover gasket at the same time. This morning the car finally threw an error code for me, though. So I am guessing whatever was making the car sluggish I made worse when I was changing the injectors, which is good because - again - I finally got an error code. Not sure if I knocked an old hose or some shit but getting error code p0172. This is a 4 cyl fwd hyundai getz. It says rich fuel. Took injectors out then and inspected, cleaned and back in. Cleaned vacuum sensor... Cleaned throttle trim sensor (or whatever is immediately behind the butterfly valve on (carby)..vacuum tested the top 2 hoses (hose from carby to rockers and hose from rockers back to air filter). Those were fine.

Almost out of ideas. Long term fuel trim % at 25% - it's supposed to be between 1-2%.

Apparently oxygen sensor isn't the cause because it would not know the long term fuel (or some shit).

Anyone know? I heard vacuum a lot when I googled the code. It's not misfiring or anything. Just sluggish as fuck during acceleration (requires very high revs, also requires lower gear to maintain normally higher gear speeds)

So what's the problem now? Hesitation?

It sounds like this engine is turbo fucked so it's hard to give targeted advice. Step one is make sure the fundamentals are sound like high and even compression across cylinders. Do a leak down test too. If that checks out then make sure your idle kPa is in spec for your car. If it is then you probably don't have a vacuum leak either.

My next suspicion after that would be whether the engine has an EGR or throttle position sensor issue. A bad metering valve on the EGR will cause excessive exhaust recirculation which will make the engine run like shite. Bad throttle position signal will make the ECU do dumb shit any time you move the throttle open/closed too quickly.
>>
>>20428173
compression test all cyl was 210psi - all identical, which i did not too long ago. The car manifold absolute pressure seems to be all over the joint..idles at 30kpa which is normal, now ive seen it idle at 40kpa, its only supposed to go up if I accelerate and its able to suck in more air, lowering that vacuum hence expecting a higher kpa at the MAP...car is currently running at -25% fuel trim on short - any extended drive (which is 3 or 4 times a day) will probably now trigger the check engine light.

the second post in the thread shows the only hoses I can see attached to the manifold that I havent checked but no one has commented on it yet. Literally all that is left before I run out of ideas. Today I ran out of time but the car is slightly more driveable. I have to ride the clutch in first gear because the car wants to drive so fucking fast, go into second and it loses power and slowly begins to accelerate normal again.

couldnt find that throttle ignition spray shit in the store today which is why I havent sprayed petrol all over my engine yet. you know, to see if the idle changes.
>>
>>20428199
>I have to ride the clutch in first gear because the car wants to drive so fucking fast, go into second and it loses power and slowly begins to accelerate normal again.

this was why i touched the fuel injectors in the first place (I got new ones cheap as shit). But basically rule that out because before and after I still had the fucking hesitation.

O2 sensors oscillating as normal (post-cat doing its flatline, which is normal).

only things off are MAP and fuel trim. I cant hear any hissing whatsoever which is apparently audible if there are vacuum leaks. But again, ill pour petrol on the engine when i get a chance to see if there ar eany notable changes in its idle
>>
>>20428199
sorry out of my depth mate, you post updates though. i might be wrong but my car ran "fine" on about the same negative fuel trim, in that it still pulled hard cos the closed loop will compensate.

im usually wrong but it just seems like it shouldnt be causing such a huge drivability issue? can you check the injector duty cycle and see if its maxed

No
also while >>20427755 is right about the proper FOV scale making it easier to gauge distance, keep in mind that a lower FOV reduces your peripheral vision and makes it harder to see what's going on around you. It also makes the car appear to move slower, which can throw you off quite badly.

A Realistic FOV should not be used in a multiplayer game unless you have built the spatial awareness to not hit people you can't see.

You could theoretically roll back some of the newer safety demands if you increased and standardized driver education but that will never happen.

What if there was an exhaust-driven waterpump? could you run an engine very hot and pump water faster without HP loss from the serpentine belt? You could have a supercharger without loss because the waterpump is driven by exhaust gasses. One could even consider driving the alternator from the exhaust but there are problems i cannot solve with such a setup.

For an exhaust driven water pump engine you could put a big tank of collant to circulate while the car idles and is only moderately powering the exhaust water pump. There would be a series of valves to keep the circulation system as short as possible to increase pressure in the coolant loop and collant reservoirs. I would imagine that an extremely stressed engine could be cooled efficiently by the non-traditional water pump set up like one powered by exhast gasses.

Does any car use a system like this?

>>
>>20428141
When you have more air in the cylinder you can create more boom and therefore drive the piston harder. Turbos basically give you that extra air for free, but only at certain rpm.
>>
>>20428224
i admit ignorance of diesels. in a petrol engine, youre putting more air but you still have to add more fuel, so theres no efficiency gained, just more work being done.
>>
>>20428228
Well, the turbo in a gas engine still creates greater *volumetric* efficiency. Gas engines can’t utilize boost in the same way diesels can because diesels don’t have to worry about preignition, so the sky is basically the limit. Diesels operate by compressing the air in the cylinder so much that it gets hot enough to instantly react with the fuel when it is injected into the cylinder. This means that the more compression you add (static or dynamic), the more efficiently you can burn the injected fuel on the power stroke. If there were no turbos, big rigs would either be running horribly inefficient 30L engines to make the same power, or would be even more painfully slow than they already are. As far as gas engines are concerned, increased compression does increase thermal efficiency as far as I’m aware, so adding compression via turbos should still make them more efficient at a given power range, right?
>>
>>20428283
cheers makes sense.

i believe that compression must be lowered in most gas turbo applications, whether by low compression pistons or by tricky cams. i'd really like to read something detailed measuring it, but i dont think the efficiency gain of running very high dynamic compression is any different to simply running a very high compression NA motor.

volumetric efficiency sure but that means something far more specific and narrow that i thought you were talking about.

civil thread though, you were the guy i was arguing last time and i thought you were.

I'm honestly probably the only person in the world who likes these things but they seem kinda dumb in operation
like, why the fuck can't you disable them to prevent the motor from wearing out by unclipping the shoulder belt if for example you're doing something that requires you to get in and out of your car repeatedly
I know they were supposed to be the cheap alternative to airbags for passive restraints laws but come on, did auto makers really not want to build them to last?
>>
My 92 corolla has a weird version where the shoulder anchors to the outer corner of the door and doesn't move so you have to duck under it to get in so I just unbuckle it when I get out. Does your not unbuckle at all or does the clip just move regardless?

About them being alternatives to airbags, I checked the NHTSA crash data on my car and every one who died was only wearing the auto shoulder belt so I wonder how much good that did, especially since the belt style isn't around anymore.
>>
>>20428281
I mean it's basically as good as a normal seatbelt(or less if you forget to buckle the lap belt)
you still can and likely will concuss yourself on the steering wheel
my car's weird and has both automatic airbags and a driver side airbag, so whatever
also mine has the moving track shoulder belt, not the fucking retarded door mounted belt
whoever thought of that is probably rotting in hell
