RELIABILITY EVALUATION AND COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF ENGINES FOR LIGHT-DUTY VEHICLES WITH ELECTRONIC FUEL CONTROL SYSTEMS USING PARETO APPROACH
Over the past several years, reliability has become an increasingly important topic when it comes to continuous improvement. Higher engine reliability reduces repair costs, and contributes to increased performance. In addition, it increases safety and reduces potentially serious failures. This paper presents an evaluation and comparative analysis of the reliability of two different types of electronic fuel control systems – Common rail and Epic Lucas using the Pareto method. Their most common failures and repairs costs are identified and present in diagrams.
