Internal combustion engine plays vital role in any automotive application and mechanical systems. These engines are worldwide used as device transforming one form of energy into another form and their cost is high so; maintenance of such engines is an essential thing. In this project the focus is on the fault detection and experimental analysis of the engine. The available literature was thoroughly reviewed and many methods about fault detection were studied. Review of research study concluded that fault tree analysis which uses logic gates and Boolean algebra. It is a graphically design technique that provide reliability block diagram and the tree developed will identify the root causes. By the use of this method it is an easy way to identify failure parts of system. After identifying the failure parts of the engine these parts will be either repaired or replaced and carried various experimental tests such as load, Speed and Morse test on the engine. To compare performance of test setup with and without fault tree analysis approaches are used. The results obtained using fault tree analysis is effective in manner. The performance of engine is increased after maintenance and fault tree analysis method facilitates successfully optimizing of maintenance effort.
