Answer All Questions 10 x 2 = 20 Marks
State major types of automobiles according to the fuel used.
 Gasoline. Gasoline or petrol is the most common fuel used in cars
today. ...
 Diesel. Diesel fuel is widely used in transport vehicles such as
tractor-trailer trucks, buses, boats and trains. ...
1.  Liquefied Petroleum. ... An CO1 2
 Compressed Natural Gas. ...
 Ethanol. ...
 Bio-diesel.

List any four components of a chassis.

 Steering and Suspension Knuckles
 Engine Cradles and Mounts

 Axle Housings and Covers

2. Re CO1 2
 Driveline Components

 Transmission Mounts

Mention any two requirement of an automobile.

An internal combustion engine requires (i) a combustible mixture, (ii)
compression stroke, (Hi) a form of ignition, and (iv) the minimum initial
3. starting speed (about 100 rpm) in order to start and continue running. To
An CO1 2
meet the first three of these requirements the minimum starting speed must
be attained. This is where the electric starter comes in.
List any four characteristics of a good chassis.
An example of a chassis is the underpart of a motor vehicle, consisting
4. of the frame (on which the body is mounted). If the running gear such as Re CO1 2
wheels and transmission, and sometimes even the driver's seat, are included,
then the assembly is described as a rolling chassis.
5. Give any two requirement of good frame. Cr CO1 2

 Weight of the body, passengers, and cargo loads.

 Vertical and torsional twisting transmitted by going over uneven

 Transverse lateral forces caused by road conditions, side wind, and

steering the vehicle.

 Torque from the engine and transmission.

 Longitudinal tensile forces from starting and acceleration, as well as

compression from braking.

 Sudden impacts from collisions.

Define cross wind force.

Definition. When winds are not parallel to or directly with/against the
line of travel, the wind is said to have acrosswind component; that is,
6. Re CO1 2
the force can be separated into two vector components: the headwind or
tailwind component in the direction of motion, thecrosswind component
perpendicular to the former.
State any four functions of lubrication.
A lubricant is a substance, usually organic, introduced to reduce
friction between surfaces in mutual contact, which ultimately reduces the
7. An CO1 2
heat generated when the surfaces move. It may also have the function of
transmitting forces, transporting foreign particles, or heating or cooling the
What is carburetor?
Fuel plus air equals motion—that's the basic science behind most of the
vehicles that travel on land, over sea, or through the sky. Cars, trucks, and
8. buses turn fuel into power by mixing it with air and burning it in metal Re CO2 2
cylinders inside their engines. Exactly how much fuel and air an engine
needs varies from moment to moment, depending on how long it's been
running, how fast you're going, and a variety of other factors
What are the requirements of a spark plug?
The spark plug has two primary functions: To ignite the air/fuel
mixture. Electrical energy is transmitted through the spark plug, jumping
9. the gap in the plugs firing end if the voltage supplied to the plug is high
Re CO2 2
enough. This electrical spark ignites the gasoline/air mixture in the
combustion chamber.
What is the purpose of Cut-out relay?
A device to connect or disconnect the generator from the battery circuit.
10. When the generator is charging, cutout makes circuit, when generator Re CO2 2
stops, cutout breaks circuit. Also referred to as "circuit breaker ."
See cutout .
