  Understanding a Supercharger




A supercharger is a forced air induction unit that allows a motor to create more horsepower. The idea of a supercharger is very simple, more air and more fuel makes more power. The supercharger is usually bolted to the intake system of your car and is driven by a belt connected to the main pulley on the motor. The faster the motor spins, the faster the blades inside the supercharger spin and more pressure or "Boost" is created. The air in a supercharger is drawn in by the blades that pull the air in and then forced it into the pistons through the exit of the charger unit. Once the extra air is mixed with the proper amount of fuel, a more powerful explosion is created. The pulley size on a supercharger can be changed to increase the boost created by the unit. Superchargers are preferable to turbochargers just for the fact that there is no lag as the unit spins up, unlike with a turbo.


The supercharger may malfunction due to deficient or over-filled oil. If the oil is over-filled, you can see it dripping or leaking from the supercharger. If the oil is deficient, you will hear a clacking noise from the front of the supercharger, when the automobile is idling. A damaged supercharger will also illuminate the Check Engine light in your vehicle's dashboard and induce acceleration problems. Above all, it will cause a considerable decrease in the vehicle's mileage.
