Apparatus and hold open feature in a latch


A latch is disclosed herein. The latch having: a fork bolt movably mounted to the latch for movement between an open position and a closed position; a detent lever movably mounted to the latch for movement between a latched position and a released position, wherein the detent lever prevents the fork bolt from moving from the closed position to the open position when the detent lever is in the latched position; a bellcrank lever movably mounted to the latch for movement between a first position and a second position, wherein the bellcrank lever moves the detent lever from the latched position to the released position as the bellcrank lever moves from the first position to the second position; and a hold open feature movably mounted to the latch for movement between a first position and a second position, wherein the hold open feature is configured to engage and retain the bellcrank lever in the second position when the hold open feature is in the first position and wherein the hold open feature allows the bell crank lever to travel from the second position to the first position when the hold open feature is in the second position..

Volume-controlled four-stroke reciprocating internal combustion engine and operating the four-stroke reciprocating internal combustion engine


The invention relates to a volume-controlled four-stroke reciprocating internal combustion engine comprising a first cylinder, in which a first piston that is operationally connected to a crankshaft via a first connecting rod, is arranged so as to be displaceable in a reciprocating motion, and at least one second cylinder, in which a second piston that is operationally connected to the crankshaft via a second connecting rod is arranged so as to be displaceable in a reciprocating motion. The engine further includes a fresh air tract for the second cylinder, in which an expansion/compression machine is arranged in the direction of flow of fresh air before a gas exchange inlet valve of the second cylinder, wherein the expansion/compression machine is the first cylinder.

Rough road determination device


A rough road determination device (100) is mounted on a vehicle (1) that is equipped with an internal combustion engine (10) having a crank angle sensor (31). This rough road determination device is equipped with determination means (20) for determining whether or not a road on which the vehicle travels is a rough road, by comparing a first amplitude fluctuation amount as an amplitude fluctuation amount of one pulse of an output of the crank angle sensor, which is determined in advance on the basis of a rotational speed of the internal combustion engine, with a second amplitude fluctuation amount as an amplitude fluctuation amount of one pulse that is actually output from the crank angle sensor..

Control internal combustion engine


When a stop position of a piston resulting from the automatic stop is in a range that is on an advance side of a threshold in terms of crank angle, fuel injection is performed at beginning of the automatic restart-up in the cylinder that is in the intake stroke and an ignition is performed in a subsequent initial compression stroke in the same cylinder. When the stop position of the piston resulting is in a range that is on a retard side of the threshold in terms of crank angle, initial fuel injection is performed in the cylinder that next enters an intake stroke among the cylinders of the internal combustion engine after the beginning of automatic restart-up and initial ignition is performed in a subsequent compression stroke in the same cylinder.
