The U-shaped area of POD 302 has made JASPER’s task of assembling a gas engine more efficient. Three of four PODS at the Jasper Facility have been reconfigured in a similar way.
Have you considered how your decision to make a major repair to your vehicle affects our environment? We have researched how much energy JASPER utilizes in the remanufacturing process and compared it with information from the Argonne National Lab, a research center for the U.S. Department of Energy. By averaging the curb weight of three vehicles: a Mercedes-Benz W126, a Hummer H2 and a Toyota Prius, a determination was made on the average amount of energy required in manufacturing vehicles. Energy usage at JASPER, per drivetrain component, was figured and, on the average, only 1% of the energy is consumed in remanufacturing a drivetrain component in comparison to manufacturing the entire vehicle. In tangible terms, that is an energy savings of nearly six tons of coal or 1008 gallons of crude oil.
You car’s fuel system works with the rest of the engine control system to deliver the best performance with the lowest emissions. Check your car’s fuel system regularly or immediately if you smell gas or suspect a problem.
What does it do? The fuel system transfers fuel from the fuel tank and passes it through a fuel filter for straining before it arrives at the injectors. A pressure regulator controls fuel pressure to ensure good engine performance under a variety of speed and load conditions. Fuel injectors, when activated, spray a metered amount of fuel into the engine. Some vehicles use a return line system to return unused fuel back to the tank.
GAS ENGINES Install a completely remanufactured JASPER gas engine in your vehicle and get the best of both worlds. JASPER remanufactured gas engines are built to meet or exceed OEM specifications, and have a 3 year/100,000 mile nationwide, transferable parts and labor warranty. Remember, this is a completely remanufactured engine with all new wear parts, tight tolerances and run-tested reliability. Go to our online catalog to get a price on a gas engine to fit your vehicle. Our optional Premium Service Plan provides allowances for such items as towing, car rental, fluids and premium labor should a problem arise. Click here for details and limitations.
