The temperature and cooling effect plays a major role in deciding the performance factors in Engines.In liquid cooled engines there is a option for controlled cooling by controlling the circulation of coolant around the cylinder.But in the air cooled engines,there is no such option on cooling and which is operated always in open air. During cold condition when the engine starts it looses heat even when before it reached the optimal temperature. This delay results in higher fuel consumption and lower thermal efficiency. In this paper attempt was made to review the effect of adopting Controlled cooling method for Air cooled engines by maintaining optimal temperature of an engine always with a option to cool it only when the engine overheats beyond the optimal temperature limit.
