Main Parts of an Engine:

Automobile engines are complicated mechanisms that are made from several internal parts that employment like clockwork to provide that power that moves your vehicle. For the engine to work properly, it needs all of its parts to be in condition. One fault is often disastrous! Let’s take a glance at most parts of the engine.


Engine Block:

The block is the main part of the engine. All other parts of the motor are essentially bolted thereto. Inside the block is where the magic happens, like combustion.



Pistons pump up and down because the spark plugs fire and also the pistons compress the air/fuel mix. This reciprocating energy is converted to movement and transferred to the tires by the transmission, via the driveshaft, to create the spin.


Cylinder Head:

The plate is attached to the highest of the block to seal the world to stop the loss of gases. The spark plugs, valves, and other parts are fitted thereto.



Located near the underside of the cylinder block, this can be the part that converts energy from reciprocating to rotary.



The camshaft opens and closes the valves in perfect timing with the remainder of the parts.



The valves regulate the flow of air, fuel, and waste product inside the plate. There are both intake valves and exhaust valves.


Oil Pan:

The oil pan also referred to as the oil sump, is attached to the underside of the engine and stores all the oil employed in the lubrication of the engine.
