6.2. System of the consecutive distributed injection (SFI)

The scheme of an arrangement of components of a control system of consecutive injection (SFI) in a motive compartment

In systems of consecutive injection each of 6 (by the number of cylinders) fuel injectors works at the time of the beginning of opening of the corresponding inlet valve. Thus, fuel is injected into cylinders according to order of operation of spark plugs.

During start of the engine and in case of failures of the system of management (emergency operation) the system passes into the mode of simultaneous injection of fuel in all cylinders of the engine.

The main components of the SFI system are:

By efficiency of functioning the system answers all with requirements of the international standards. The description of the principle of functioning of the part of system which is responsible for fuel injection the engine is given below. Information on functioning of a subsystem of ignition — see the Control system of the VG33E engine. Procedures of diagnostics.

The submersible fuel pump placed in the fuel tank provides supply of fuel under pressure to the fuel highway, on the way banishing it through the fuel filter installed behind under the car. The pressure of supply of fuel is defined by pressure regulator installed on the throttle case. Excess of fuel on the returnable line goes back to the fuel tank.

Electric part of a control system consists of the electronic module of management (ECM) and the following information sensors (see the illustration Scheme of an Arrangement of Components of a Control System of Consecutive Injection (SFI) in a motive compartment):

All arriving information is processed by ECM which then issues commands of management of ignition and opening of an injector of injection of fuel. Management of an injector happens by change of width of the operating electric opening impulse that allows to make with the minimum delay correction of composition of air-fuel mix at change of external factors. Thanks to a possibility of such adjustments return of the engine is supported at the maximum level at any stage of functioning of the unit: at start, during warming up, at acceleration, a deseleration and the movement with a constant speed.

ECM exercises also control of idling turns. Necessary adjustments are made by activation of the throttle of the step electric motor established on the case. The engine on the ECM teams makes a bypass opening / overshoot, in case of need (for example, at the butterfly valve closed or being in the provision of idling) starting up air bypassing the throttle camera.

Besides, ECM exercises control of functioning of system of catching of fuel evaporations of EVAP.

If from sensors information confirming emergence not of an emergency situation arrives, ECM switches in emergency functioning when instead of inadequate signals basic values of the corresponding parameters are substituted — efficiency of return of the engine in such mode, naturally, decreases. Prevents operation of a control lamp of refusals on an instrument guard of the car about ECM entrance to emergency operation of the driver (see the Head the Maintenance instruction), in the processor memory at the same time the corresponding diagnostic code is brought (see the Control system of the VG33E engine. Procedures of diagnostics).

At operation of a control lamp the car follows at the first opportunity to drive away on company car repair shop Opel for performing detailed diagnostics with use of the special equipment and performance of necessary recovery repair.

The diagnostic equipment (the reader of skanerny type) is connected to the DLC socket located under a decorative slip under ahead lever of the parking brake.
