Compression Testing and What You Can Learn From It - EricTheCarGuy
Compression Testing and What You Can Learn From It - EricTheCarGuy
Here is a video on performing a compression test on an engine to assess
it's mechanical condition. An engines ability to compress air and fuel is
directly proportional to it's performance since an engine is nothing more
than an air compressor once you take away all the controls. A compression
test is a good general test that will give you an idea of the engine's
overall health but it does not give specific information on what the
problem is should there be one, for that a "leak down test" would be
required, here is a link to that video.
However if you find yourself looking for the source of a performance
problem with an engine, this is a great place to start. This test is often
overlooked in favor of looking at the fuel or ignition system, I think
that's a mistake, if an engine can't perform mechanically no amount of
electronics will make that better.

Mercedes Benz Factory
Mercedes-Benz plant Bremen: Bremen plant to produce additional model of the
C Class model range as of 2011
• Development as a competence centre: Bremen plant expanding production
operations to include Coupé of the C-Class
• New variant to be produced in addition to the C-Class Saloon, the
C-Class Estate and the GLK as of 2011
• Flexible production: Coupé to be produced with three existing models
on a single line
Peter Schabert, Head of the Bremen plant: "Decision another milestone on
our way to becoming the C-Class competence centre and a clear sign of trust
in Bremen team's capabilities and standards."
Bremen - The Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen is gearing up for the production
of a fourth model of the high-volume C-Class model range. As of 2011, a
Coupé will be added to a flexible production line, which already produces
the three existing models. This will be a new addition to Bremen's current
production portfolio in the C-Class segment, comprising the Saloon, the
Estate and the compact GLK sport utility vehicle (SUV).
"The decision by the Board of Management to produce the Coupé version of
the current C-Class here in Bremen as well represents another important
milestone on our way to becoming Mercedes' competence centre for the
C-Class and is a clear sign of the trust in the Bremen team's capabilities
and standards," says Peter Schabert, Head of the Mercedes-Benz plant in
The Bremen plant is developed into the worldwide competence centre for the
high-volume C-Class model series. Allocating production of the new Coupé
to the plant is in keeping with this strategy. As announced in December
2009, the launch of the next generation of the C-Class at the plant as of
2014 will see production of the C-Class Saloon for markets in Europe
concentrated at a single location together with the production of the other
C-Class model variants.
The Bremen plant is already demonstrating the flexibility of its production
operations by producing three models (C-Class Saloon, C-Class Estate and
GLK) on a single assembly line. The vehicles are able to pass along the
assembly line in any conceivable order precisely as customer orders
require, irrespective of model, variant (right- or left-hand drive,
all-wheel or rear-wheel drive) and equipment. From 2011 the Bremen plant
will be integrating a fourth model into the production process in the guise
of the Coupé, demonstrating the plant's flexibility once again.
Production portfolio of the Bremen plant.
In addition to the models of the C-Class model series, vehicles belonging
to the E-Class are also produced in Bremen, with the Coupé and Cabrio
running in flexible configuration on a single production line. The
roadsters of the SL- and SLK-Class are also produced exclusively in Bremen.
With a workforce of around 12,600, the Mercedes-Benz plant is the largest
private-sector employer in the region.
Audi TT Production
Györ, the Hungarian city on the Danube, is an ideal location for the
manufacturing of high-tech engines and cars. Its merits lie not merely in
the high availability of skilled workers and highly qualified university
AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft., a fully owned subsidiary of AUDI AG, builds over
1.9 million engines there each year, and assembles the Audi TT model range
and the A3 Cabriolet, among other vehicles, in tandem with the Ingolstadt
plant. Audi Hungaria is the principal engine supplier of the Audi and
Volkswagen Groups, one of Hungary's highest revenue enterprises and also
one of the country's biggest exporters.
ENGINE MANUFACTURING - Engine production (pre-series) started as long ago
as the end of 1993. The engine production plant in Györ, Hungary, was
inaugurated in October 1994. With this move, Audi not only safeguarded its
international competitiveness, it also created a strategic base in Hungary
that is gaining increasingly in importance. Györ now produces almost the
entire range of Audi engines. Some 400 different versions of basic engines
are built there: four, six, eight, ten and twelve-cylinder engines
featuring both TDITDISynonymous with muscular torque delivery and
outstanding efficiency: TDI. Today, TDI engines are sporty, smooth and
economical.TDI and FSIFSIGetting more out of every drop of petrol.FSI
technology. The ten millionth engine was completed there in June 2005.
Volume production of the new four-cylinder common rail engines started in
VEHICLE ASSEMBLY - Assembly of the Audi TT models at Györ commenced in
April 1998. The first second-generation Audi TT Coupé left the Audi
Hungaria production line in April 2006, and was followed by the first TT
Roadster of the same generation in that November. The bodyshells, which
have already been painted in Germany, are brought by train from Ingolstadt
to Györ, where they are delivered to the assembly hall. By the end of
2007, 382,445 Audi TT Coupé and TT Roadster cars as well as 216 of the new
Audi A3 Cabriolet had been assembled in partnership with the Ingolstadt
plant. Audi has systematically realised a new, process-oriented production
concept at the plant -- with short distances and fast, direct flows, from
the delivery of parts to the transportation of the assembled cars.
