Chevrolet Spark

Chevrolet SparkThe creation of the Chevrolet Spark was preceded by the transition of the Korean Daewoo car manufacturer to the American Corporation of General Motors. After this the “GM-Daewoo Auto&Technology” company was created.

As a result, all the autos of the group that were issued on the domestic market of Korea changed the name to Chevrolet. So, in 2005, after significant changes of the exterior and interior of many beloved Daewoo Matiz was released under the name Chevrolet Spark. From Matiz it was distinguished by a contemporary design with clean lines and modern elements, like lights similar to 2008 Chevy Malibu headlight, more robust design and low cost.

The car is made in five-door hatchback body. The length of the car is 3.5 meters. Under the hood of the car there can be installed one of two petrol engines: a 52-horsepower 0.8-liter unit or a 66 – horsepower 1-liter engine. On Eropean market the car also comes under the name of Chevrolet Spark. The engines of the first-generation of the car corresponded to the ecological norms of Euro 2.

In 2008, after modifications of the power train they had to meet the emission standards Euro 3. Chevrolet Spark 2011 was designed on the same platform, which was slightly improved.

The choice of spares for foreign cars

spares for foreign carsEvery car owner certainly at least once, but thought, from what in the first place may depend comfortable and, most importantly, safe driving a car? Of course, it will be auto parts. Because every detail is tend to wear out, and spare parts for foreign cars is no exception, brewing the question of where, and most importantly – how to buy parts for your car, and that they will serve faithfully for you and your car. Because to extend the life of your car you need only to buy spare parts. Just to save your car in working state as long as possible.

Lately, more and more emphasis is paid on brand cars, such as Hyundai, Daewoo, Kia and Chevrolet. Spare parts for foreign cars of such class will cost not very expensive, and, nevertheless, will serve you by excellent service. I would like to mention the fact that the domestic car owners also prefer to sit behind the wheel of chic and luxury brands such as BMW, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, Saab, Toyota and others. In this case, it is worth considering that any repair or replacement of spare parts will lead to considerable financial expenditure.

What is the engine turbo lag?

turbo lagTurbo lags are a failure in the recruitment of the engine speed due to the inertia of the turbine. “Gas is given”, but the car did not immediately accelerated. Due effect of turbo lag, there is a jump in the acceleration of the car.

Auto turbine comprises two impellers mounted on a common shaft, but located in separate chambers sealingly separated from each other. One of the vanes caused to rotate entering to her engine exhaust gases. As the second impeller is rigidly connected with it, it also begins to rotate and capture fresh air, feeding it into the engine cylinders.

The turbine can be untwisted over 150 000 rev / min, the more exhaust gas is supplied to the turbine impeller, the higher the RPM will be, and thus it will inject more air.

The following occurs. The car is moving at a low speed and the motor also works with small turnovers. In a way there is a need of overtaking and driver abruptly depresses the gas pedal, but nothing happens. It is “turbo lag” caused by the delay of the turbine. Those, in other words “turbo lag” is power delay and increase the engine speed during a sharp pressing the gas pedal.
