What other engines would fit my 2000 honda civic if i wanted to engine swap?
Hi i am looking to engine swap my 2000 honda civic (coupe) and don't know what other engines fit its body. Like what engines from other stock cars and/or and turbo or improved engines made for the civic are there?
Question answered by Kyle N
Any engine will fit any car. i have seen a CRX (really small honda) with a V8 in it. it was a beast. i would go with the K20 as well or second choice a B18, or H22. all three are great engines.
How are jet engines started at airports ?
and the engines in the tails when they need to be started ?
@ Mike a BA 747 restarted its 4 engines after flying above a active volcano.
Question answered by RickH
The simple answer is that the N1, N2, and/or N3 needs to be spinning at some specified rpm before the introduction of fuel. Once the ignition in energized, and fuel is introduced, the engine spins up to idle or operating rpm, and you are done.
APU: All APUs that I have used in the past are completely automatic. We just select the start position of the APU selector switch, and the rest is done automatically. Even though it is automatic, it works essentially like the engines below.
Corporate Jet: In all the corporate jets that I am aware of such as Lear, IA-Jet, Hawker, Gwiz, Citation, etc. the engine starter is electric.
1) Select a switch which may have many names, and many switch positions, into the GROUND START position.
2) Monitor the rpm of the N1 and N2 sections of the engine, and introduce fuel when the appropriate rpm(s) is reached.
3) There are ignitors(high energy spark plugs) in the engine which start firing either when the switch is selected to GROUND START, or when the fuel is introduced.
In the above, fuel is usually introduced by taking the power lever which is in the cutoff position, up and over the idle stop. When the thrust lever is pulled full back, it stops at the idle position. In order to get it into the cutoff position, the lever must be raised and then pulled further aft. This is to prevent inadvertent shutdown of the engine. Some corporate jets have a start lever arrangement much like the transport jets mentioned below.
All of the transport category airplanes that I have flown, use air to start the engines. This air will usually come from the on-board APU, but will sometimes come from a huffer cart (A compressor capable for putting out 30-40 psi in a huge volume), a compressed air bottle (I have used one once in my career, and haven't even seen one in 10-15 years), an in-ground air source (haven't seen a working unit in at least 10 years), or cross bleed from one of the other engines.
1) Configure the pneumatic system in whatever way is necessary to get air to the engine's start valve.
2) Select a switch (like above different names and different positions on different models) into what is essentially a GROUND START position. This opens the engine's start valve, which allows air to enter the pneumatic starter (I is small turbine that the air flows through and causes it to turn). It usually either energizes the ignitors or arms the ignitors. The starter is connected to either the N2 or N3 section which causes these sections to start turning. The N1 (In the case of an engine with an N3 section, then N2 also) section is, in every case that I am aware of, free wheeling, and just responds to the air movement cause by the rotating N2 or N3 section, by beginning to rotate.
3) At the appropriate rpm, move the start lever or switch into the run position. Depending on the airplane, this will introduce fuel and energize the ignitors. In a transport category airplane, the thrust levers don't double as an engine start lever. A separate switch or lever below the thrust levers controls the introduction of fuel to the engine.
4) In the old days, the pilot held the switch in the GROUND START position until a certain rpm, and then released it. Now, all are held in position magnetically, and released automatically at the appropriate time.
What odd search engines are there except the one that searches for websites?
There are search engines to find the song data of a song that you play or sing into your pc, there is a search engine that finds duplicates of pictures, what more odd search engines are there you that know ?

How do the engines on the U-2 and SR-71 differ from other jet engines given their maximum ceiling differences?
What is different about those engines?
A U-2 can fly high where other aircraft engines would stall because of lack of oxygen correct? Exactly how does that work?
Question answered by Mildred's people
I concur with Nomad and Bradley. There was nothing special about the U-2 engine. The P&W J57 that powered the U-2E was essentially the same engine that later went on 707s and DC-8s. The P&W J58 that powered the SR-71 however was different...which had a dual role as turbojet and fan-assisted ramjet. The difference is the U-2 only has to fly high. It doesn't have to be fast, and it can loiter around for hours. The SR-71 had to be a high flyer AND fast...incredibly fast. The only way you're going to get a big bird like that to go Mach 3 at an altitude where air density is less than 1% is to put giant fire breathing dragon engines on it.
Jet engines can stall, but not from a lack of air density. They stall due to the same causes as a wing stall...when their angle of attack exceeds a certain value.
Why are jet engines hung forward of the wing leading edges?
In other words, why aren't engines hung directly underneath the wings? It seems like weight would be saved through less mass of structural components. You'd also have less potential vibration problems with the wobbling up and down of the engine. However, I remember that older 737s had the engines directly under the wings, but that's all.
Question answered by Firefox
The -100 and the -200 had the engines(JT8D-1) directly under the wings. But you should remember that these were low by-pass turbofans and hence of a smaller dimension (circumference) than its high by-pass turbofan successor CFM56. The larger dimension of the CFM56 turbofan (B737 Classic and NG series) meant that there could be ground clearance issues if fixed directly to the wing. Hence the nifty forward hanging placement. It was the increased diameter of the engines that necessitated this change.
And the B737 models are example that the engine placements are more of practicability and design considerations than absolute weight savings.
What other engines are compatible with a 2000 toyota avalon?
I need to replace my engine on my 2000 Toyota Avalon. Manufacturers change the body type every year but they might not change the engine compatibility. So I wanted to know which engines were compatible with my car? Please help.
Question answered by Ramon C
The names are: Toyota and Avalon. Proper names are always capitalized. Always. OK? As far as the engine you need to decide with the advise of a mechanic as to what is possible and as to what you can afford. Something wrong with the original motor? Remember that engines are paired up with transmissions. I believe this car is rear wheel drive as well. Top of the line Toyota. Nice car. Go and ask at an auto repair shop or anyone that can do this type of work. Best wishes.
How do I find engines that are compatible with a Daewoo Laganza engine online?
I would like to totally replace my current engine with a engine that is not a Daewoo Laganza engine (ex.Honda civc engine) so what engines are compatible with that engine or do you know of any sites I can go to find a engine. Thank you for yor assistace!!!
Question answered by UCANTCME
Sorry I can not help you, I even tried to call the Honda dealer and spoke with both the service and parts department and they were completely brain dead.
I would suggest that you maybe contact a machine shop that rebuilds engines and ask them. I feel that you are getting into deep water by doing this.

How do multiple cylinder engines work?
I understand how 4-stroke engines work, but I just cant comprehend how the use of multiple cylinders would increase performance. Can somebody help me preferably with a diagram that I can find online?
Question answered by daw999999
See the animation below.
Take the case of an inline, four-cylinder engine, such as the one in the animation. Think of it as four individual engines joined by one crankshaft. Whatever torque one cylinder generates, four cylinders generate four times the torque.
A four cylinder engine is the easiest to envision this problem with, as each cylinder is performing one of the four strokes at any time. This is achieved through a combination of camshaft timing (opening / closing the valves) and firing order of the spark plugs. A typical firing order for a four cylinder engine such as this would be 1-3-4-2.
So let's say that cylinder #1 is going down in the power stroke. #4 is also being pushed down, so it's on the intake stroke. #s 2 & 3 are going up, and since #3 is going to fire next, it must be on the compression stroke, and #2 must be on the exhaust stroke. You should be able to extrapolate the process through each successive rotation, with two cylinders firing on one revolution, and the other two on the next.
A four stroke engine works best with multiple cylinders for the primary reason that four stroke engines only fire each cylinder once every two revolutions. With only one cylinder, they have to "coast" for one revolution. For that reason, you usually only find one cylinder four stroke engines on something like a lawnmower that has a relatively heavy blade acting as a flywheel.
In contrast, small engines like weed whackers use are usually two stroke, because they don't need that flywheel effect to keep going.
Hope this helps, not confuses you.
What type of engines are on the Boeing 787?
i am just wondering what type of engines do they used, I think they are Rolls Royce but i can't remember.
Question answered by JetDoc
When an airline company orders a new airplane to be built from the factory, they have a choice of engines. Depending on the choice of the aircraft owner, the new 787 is fitted with either the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 or General Electric GEnx. It appears the engine choices are running about equal at this time
