Self Study Program 195 – The 2.3-ltr V5 Engine PDF free online
The new 2.3-ltr. V5 engine is related to the VR6 engine as regards design. For this reason this Self-Study Programme will be largely confined to the modifications to the VR6 engine.
You will find more detailed information about the design of the engine mechanicals or the cooling system and the oil circuit in SSP 127 “The VR6 engine” and SSP 174 “Modifications to the VR6 engine”.
Front-wheel drive, in combination with a transversely mounted four-cylinder inline engine, is now part and parcel of many motor vehicle concepts. Installing the engine transversely has promoted the development of more compact vehicles.
But the vehicle width is not sufficient to accommodate inline engines with more than four cylinders.
This is why the V-engine came into being. Al-though V-engines have a very short overall length, they are rather wide – with a V-angle of 60° or 90° – and hence cannot be used in smaller mid-range vehicles.
