The power system includes elements of the following systems:

- fuel supply, including a fuel tank, a fuel module with a pressure regulator and a fuel filter, pipelines and a fuel rail with injectors;

  • - air supply, which includes an air filter, throttle assembly, idle speed controller;
  • - catching fuel vapors, consisting of an adsorber, an adsorber purge valve and connecting pipelines.

The functional purpose of the fuel supply system is to ensure the supply of the required amount of fuel to the engine in all operating modes

The engine is equipped with an electronic control system with multiport fuel injection

In the system of distributed injection, the functions of mixture formation and dosing of the air-fuel mixture supply to the engine cylinders are separated; air is supplied by an air supply system consisting of a throttle assembly and an idle speed controller, and the amount of fuel required at each moment of engine operation is injected by injectors

This control method makes it possible to ensure the optimal composition of the combustible mixture at each particular moment of engine operation, which allows you to get maximum power with the lowest possible fuel consumption and low exhaust gas toxicity

The fuel injection system (as well as the ignition system) is controlled by an electronic unit that continuously monitors the engine load, the vehicle speed, the thermal state of the engine, and the optimal combustion process in the engine cylinders using appropriate sensors.

A feature of the Mazda 6 injection system is the synchronous operation of the injectors in accordance with the valve timing (the engine control unit receives information from the phase sensor).

The control unit turns on the injectors in series, not in pairs, as in asynchronous injection systems.

Each nozzle is activated through 720º of crankshaft rotation.

In starting and dynamic modes of engine operation, an asynchronous method of fuel supply is used without synchronization with the rotation of the crankshaft.

The main sensor for ensuring an optimal combustion process is the control sensor for the oxygen concentration in the exhaust gases (lambda probe).

Mazda 6 car fuel system design

It is installed in front of the catalytic converter of the exhaust system and, together with the engine control unit and injectors, forms a control loop for the composition of the air-fuel mixture supplied to the engine

Based on the sensor signals, the engine control unit determines the amount of unburned oxygen in the exhaust gases and accordingly evaluates the optimal composition of the air-fuel mixture entering the engine cylinders at each moment of time

Having fixed the deviation of the composition from the optimal 1:14 (fuel / air), which ensures the most efficient operation of the exhaust gas catalytic converter, the control unit changes the composition of the mixture using injectors

Since the control oxygen sensor is included in the feedback circuit of the engine control unit, the air-fuel ratio control loop is closed.

A feature of the Mazda 6 engine management system is the presence, in addition to the control sensor, of a second diagnostic oxygen concentration sensor installed on the catalytic converter

Mazda 6 car fuel system design

The fuel tank is made of impact-resistant plastic, installed under the floor of the body in its rear part and attached to the body with two clamps

In order to prevent fuel vapor from entering the atmosphere, the tank is connected by a pipeline to the adsorber.

An electric fuel pump is installed in the flange hole at the top of the tank.

From the pump, fuel is supplied to the engine fuel rail mounted on the cylinder head.

From the fuel rail, fuel is injected by injectors into the intake manifold.

A valve is installed in the filler pipe of the fuel tank to prevent fuel from escaping when the vehicle rolls over

Mazda 6 car fuel system design

The valve closes under the action of the spring installed on it.

Fuel lines of the power supply system are tubes connecting various elements of the system.

The hoses of the power system are made using a special technology from oil and petrol resistant materials.

The use of hoses other than those recommended may result in a power failure and in some cases a fire.

The fuel module includes an electric pump, a fuel gauge sensor, a pressure regulator and fuel filters (fine filter and fuel inlet filter).

Mazda 6 car fuel system design

The fuel module delivers fuel and is installed in the fuel tank, reducing the chance of vapor lock as the fuel is supplied under pressure rather than under vacuum. In addition, lubrication and cooling of fuel pump parts are improved.

The fuel pressure regulator is installed in the fuel module and is designed to maintain a constant fuel pressure in the fuel rail.

The fuel fine filter is built into the fuel module

Mazda 6 car fuel system design

If the filter is clogged, it is necessary to replace the fuel module housing assembly with the filter, since the assembly is made non-separable.

Fuel rail 1 is a hollow part with holes for injectors 2, with a fitting for connecting a high-pressure fuel line and with brackets for attaching to the cylinder head.

Fuel rail with injectors: 1 - rail, 2 - injector, 3 - injector retainer, 4 - injector O-ring

The injectors are sealed in the openings of the ramp and in the sockets of the intake manifold with rubber rings 4 and secured with spring clips 3.

The rail assembly with injectors is inserted with injector shanks into the holes of the cylinder head and secured with two bolts.

Injectors 2 are attached to the rail from which fuel is supplied to them, and with their nozzles they enter the intake manifold holes

The injector is designed for metered injection of fuel into the engine cylinder and is a high-precision electromechanical valve.

Fuel under pressure flows from the rail through channels inside the nozzle body to the shut-off valve

A spring compresses the check valve needle against the taper hole in the atomizer plate, keeping the valve in the closed position

The voltage supplied from the engine control unit through the plug terminals to the injector solenoid winding creates a magnetic field in it, drawing the core together with the shut-off valve needle into the solenoid.

A conical annular hole in the atomizer plate opens and fuel is injected through the diffuser of the atomizer body into the inlet channel of the cylinder head and further into the engine cylinder

After the electrical impulse stops, the spring returns the core and the shut-off valve needle to its original state - the valve closes. The amount of fuel injected by the injector depends on the duration of the electrical impulse.

The air filter is installed in the left front of the engine compartment.

Mazda 6 car fuel system design

The filter is connected by a rubber corrugated air supply sleeve to the throttle assembly.

Mazda 6 car fuel system design

The filter element of the air filter is paper, flat, with a large filtering surface area

The throttle assembly, which is the simplest control device used to change the amount of main air supplied to the engine intake system, is installed on the intake manifold inlet flange and attached with bolts.

A molded rubber sleeve is put on the inlet pipe of the throttle assembly, fixed with a clamp and connecting the throttle assembly to the air filter

Mazda 6 car fuel system design

The throttle assembly includes a throttle position sensor and a throttle stepper motor.

There is no mechanical connection between the throttle assembly and the throttle control pedal.

The so-called "electronic" throttle pedal transmits information about the degree of depression on the pedal to the electronic engine control unit, which, in turn, taking into account the vehicle speed, gear engaged, engine load and engine speed, opens the throttle valve to the required corner.

The intake manifold is equipped with a system for changing the length of the intake tract, which allows you to develop increased power at high engine speeds (minimum intake tract length) and maximum torque in the low and medium speed range (increased intake tract length)</p >

Mazda 6 car fuel system design

The length of the intake tract changes at the signal of the engine control unit by turning the damper inside the intake manifold using a pneumatic chamber, which is connected to the engine vacuum system through a solenoid valve.

The fuel vapor recovery system prevents fuel vapors from escaping into the atmosphere, which adversely affect the environment.
