Engine Components

Engine is the main automotive component for any automobile. It works as a heart of automobile. A lot of research has been made to improve performance of automobile engine by improving engine components. Some very important engine components in modern automobile engines are engine block, flywheel, crankshaft, piston, etc.

Internal Combustion Engine - The Heart of the Automobile

An internal combustion engine is an engine that uses the explosive combustion of fuel to push a piston within a cylinder - the piston's movement turns a crankshaft that then turns the car wheels via a drive chain or drive shaft. Different types of fuels commonly used for car combustion engines are gasoline (or petrol), diesel and CNG.

 

Functions of some of the Important Engine Components

 

Flywheel:
Flywheel is one of the most important engine components. It is a large and heavy metal wheel. Flywheel is attached to the back of the crankshaft to smooth out the firing impulses. It provides inertia to keep the crankshaft turning smoothly during the periods when no power is being applied. It also forms a base for the starter ring gear and in manual transmission, for the clutch assembly.

 

Crankshaft:
Crankshaft is also one of the most engine components. It is a shaft with one or more cranks, or "throws", that are coupled by connecting rods to the engine's pistons. Together, the crankshaft and the connecting rods transform the pistons' reciprocating motion into rotary motion.

 

Piston:
Piston is another vital engine component. It is a partly hollow cylindrical part closed at one end, fitted to each of the engine's cylinders and attached to the crankshaft by a connecting rod. Each piston moves up and down in its cylinder, transmitting power created by the exploding fuel to the crankshaft via a connecting rod.

 

Carburetor:
Carburetor is the heart of automobile engine. It is the fuel system engine component that meters and mixes fuel and air in the proper proportion. The carburetor also atomizes this mixture and directs it to the intake manifold that distributes it through passages to each combustion chamber in engine.

 

Cylinder Block:
It is actually housing where all engine components reside. It is a metal casting containing the cylinders and cooling ducts of an engine. The cylinder block is extremely strong so it can withstand the rigors of engine torque and vibration, while supporting all attached engine accessories and the transmission. Cylinder block is a complicated component at the heart of the engine, with adoptions to attach the cylinder head, crankcase, engine mounts, drive housing and engine ancillaries, with passages for coolants and lubricants.

 

Timing Belt:
Timing Belt, an engine component, is a cogged belt, usually of reinforced rubber. The purpose of a timing belt component is to provide a quiet, flexible connection between the camshaft and crankshaft to keep the engine valves opening and closing in phase with the movement of the engine pistons.

 

Spark Plug:
Spark Plugs are important engine components. These plugs have two primary functions. Engine spark plug ignites the air/fuel chamber and removes the heat from engine combustion chamber.

 

There are many other important engine components which are very important in the proper functionality of an automobile engine. In general, all engine components are essential for proper working of engine. Darcast engine components manufacturer has the capability to produce engine components in large quantities. Get benefited from long experience.
