  • Patent number: 8122858
    Abstract: A coolant circuit circulates coolant between an internal combustion engine and a radiator of a vehicle and is provided with a thermostat. A control unit obtains radiator side released heat amount information, which indicates the amount of heat released from coolant through the radiator or information relevant to the amount of heat released from the coolant through the radiator. The control unit determines whether a thermostat open state abnormality exists by determining whether a predetermined thermostat abnormal time correlation exists between the radiator side released heat amount information and a vehicle speed of the vehicle in a warm-up incomplete temperature range of the coolant.

  • Publication number: 20100050602
    Abstract: Two different flows for air-fuel mixture are formed by two different variational amounts for changing the air-fuel ratio of the mixture. Response delay times for different exhaust gas flows are measured as time periods from a first time point at which the air-fuel ratio of the mixture is changed to a second time point at which an output of an oxygen sensor is changed. The oxygen sensor is provided in an exhaust pipe of an engine at a downstream side of an exhaust gas purifying catalyst. A difference between the two response delay times is compared with a predetermined threshold value to carry out the diagnosis for the catalyst deterioration.

  • Publication number: 20100032023
    Abstract: A valve freeze control apparatus for an internal combustion engine includes a concentration sensor, a valve, a freeze control device, and a start determination unit. The concentration sensor is adapted to detect an alcohol concentration of fuel supplied to the internal combustion engine. The valve is provided in one of an intake passage and an exhaust passage of the internal combustion engine, wherein the valve controls flow of air that passes through the one of the intake and exhaust passages. The freeze control device is adapted to limit malfunction of the valve caused by freeze of water in exhaust gas, and the water has been attached to the valve. The start determination unit determines to start the freeze control device when the alcohol concentration detected by the concentration sensor is equal to or greater than a reference value.

  • Patent number: 7483781
    Abstract: An engine control apparatus feedback-controls a mixture air-fuel ratio of air-fuel mixture supplied to each cylinder of the engine based on an exhaust air-fuel ratio detected by an air-fuel ratio sensor. The control apparatus further calculates an exhaust air-fuel ratio change rate at every predetermined interval and integrates an absolute value of the exhaust air-fuel ratio change rate. The control apparatus determines an abnormality in any one of engine cylinders when an integration value of the exhaust air-fuel ratio change rate exceeds a predetermined reference value.

  • Patent number: 7397148
    Abstract: An engine start is beforehand detected when a preparation operation to engine start is detected. When the preparation operation is detected based on a seat switch indicating that a driver seats himself on a driver seat, control of an electric current for a heater of an air/fuel ratio sensor is started. The air/fuel ratio sensor is then activated prior to the engine start. Failure diagnosis is conducted on a function for detecting the preparation operation. Namely, the seat switch is diagnosed as having failure, for instance, by the following. Even while a vehicle travels, the seat switch is in an OFF state indicating that no driver is seated. This structure can restrict the engine start without the air/fuel ratio sensor being pre-heated. It can also restrict deteriorating of emission.

  • Patent number: 7303337
    Abstract: In an optical communications module comprising one or more dielectric substrates equipped with an optical transmitter section, an optical receiver section or an optical transceiver section, and a chassis encasing all of them, a metal part is formed on one side of at least one of the dielectric substrates such that the metal part constitutes the whole or a part of the exterior surface of the chassis so that the length of heat conduction from a dielectric substrate with heat-generating components installed thereon can be minimized so as to efficiently release heat through the metal part to outside, curbing a temperature increase within the chassis. Thus, the optical communications module can exhibit excellent performance.

  • Patent number: 6874485
    Abstract: A fuel evaporation control system is connected to an engine control system in which an air-fuel ratio in mixture gas supplied to an engine is controlled to an optimum level. Fuel evaporated from a fuel tank is absorbed by a canister, and the absorbed fuel is purged into the engine. Deterioration of the canister in its air-permeability is detected based on measured pressure in the fuel evaporation control system or calculated density in the purge gas, both the pressure and the density being measured or calculated under two different amounts of purge gas flow. Deterioration of the canister in its fuel-absorbing ability is also detected based on the purge gas density.
