Sometimes when we open the hood of our car and generally wondered that what is going on inside as a car engine can look like a big confusing stuff of metal, tubes and wires to the uninitiated. The car of the engine comes in various different varieties along with several parts accordance to the type of vehicle such as engine of truck would be different in comparison to regular car engine due to amount of power required.
Currently most of the engines are internal combustion engines along with slight variations according to the vehicle types as well as possess some added features or components. These types of engine developed in 19th century and still remain a popular choice among car engineers. It is continuously gaining benefits from the technological advances in engineering.
Today’s advanced engines are featuring computerized controls and advanced systems in order to make them more efficient, durable and powerful. So for understanding how an engine works, it is important to know the different engine parts.
Spark Plug: Gasoline engines are making use of spark in order to ignite the fuel and cause a controlled explosion in the engine. So they are responsible for supplying the spark to ignite the air and fuel mixture.
Valves: These engine parts are helpful for fuel and air in entering the combustion chamber and letting the exhaust out but they remained sealed during the combustion process and open when required.
Piston and Pistons Rings: It is a cylindrical piece of metal which is located inside the cylinder of the engine but the piston rings are located between the piston and cylinder and there piston is located. They are responsible for sealing edge between the exterior of the piston and interior of the cylinder. They are helpful in sealing the space and preventing the fuel.
Connecting Rod and Crankshaft: The connecting rod is helpful in connecting the piston to the crankshaft and as soon as piston moves up and down due to the controlled explosions, it leads to connect the rod to move. Through which crankshaft can be moved and connected to the connecting rod. It happens in a circular motion due to the configuration of the piston as well as connecting rod and crankshaft.
Sump: It is located surrounding the crankshaft and also contains some amount of oil.
