Control device for inactivating an internal combustion engine

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4559914.

A control device for protecting an internal combustion engine in the case of malfunction of its fuel regulating system is disclosed. The control device includes means which in response to the occurrence of the first braking mode of operation of the engine after start activates a suction or pump connected to the suction chamber of a fuel injection pump. Then the reaction of the engine to the suction pump is tested. If, the engine does not react to a displacement of the control rod of the fuel adjusting mechanism, then an error is present and the engine is either stopped or switched over to an emergency mode of operation. The control device is suitable particularly for a Diesel engine.
