disc brake
consisting of a pipe to carry air fuel mixture to each cylinder in an internal-combustion engine
intake manifold
a shaft consisting of a series of cranks and crankpins to which the connecting rods of an engine are attached
Springs that cause the valves to close when the rocker arm are not pushing them open
valve spring
A cogged belt, usually of reinforced rubber, that drives the camshaft in an internal combustion engine
timing belt
a device designed to fit in each cylinder of a gasoline-powered internal-combustion engine and to produce the electric spark for igniting the mixture of gasoline
spark plug
a valve in the cylinder head of an internal combustion engine that opens to let burned gasses out
exhaust valve
A shaft in the engine on which are the lobes that operate the valves
cam shaft
a device in a gasoline engine for passing electric current to each spark plug in turn
a springy split metal ring for sealing the gap between a piston and the cylinder wall
piston ring
a device for absorbing jolts and vibrations
shock absorber
a the device that pumps fuel into the cylinders of a diesel engine
injection pump
a electromechanical valves, usually one per cylinder, situated so that they deliver fuel either directly into the engine’s combustion chamber or into the intake port
fuel injector
an engine cooling device in a motor vehicle consisting of a bank of thin tubes in which circulating fluid is cooled by the surrounding air
the part of an engine in which gasoline is mixed with air
A device driven by the engine of a vehicle that facilitates the turning of the steering wheel easier
power steering
requires an operator to shift gears manually to change the speed and torque of mechanical energy
manual transmission
A graduated rod for measuring the depth or amount of oil in a crankcase
dip stick
a replaceable tubular sleeve through which the stem of a valve passes designed to keep the valve in proper alignment
valve guide
a device that prevents the passage of fluids along a rotating shaft
oil seal
an electrical or mechanical device that delivers fuel to the engine from the fuel tank
fuel pump
is a type of car suspension system which uses the axis of a telescopic damper as the upper steering pivot
macpherson strut
An engine's power can be increased or decreased by the restriction of inlet gases
a gear, vane, or plunger type, usually an integral part of the automotive engine circulates lubricant
oil pump
A pivoted lever used in an internal combustion engine to transfer cam or pushrod motion to a valve stem
rocker arm
a heavy disk or wheel rotating on a shaft so that its momentum gives almost uniform rotational speed to the shaft
fly wheel
an induction that supplies the high voltage to the spark plugs of an internal combustion engine
ignition coil
a device that is attached to the engine of a vehicle to make it quieter

glow plug
in the cooling system of an engine that cause the coolant to circulate
water pump
consists of a turbine and a compressor linked by a shared axle
a pressure release system present in most turbocharged engines. Its purpose is to prevent compressor surge, and reduce wear on the turbocharger and engine
blow off valve
controls the fuel injection system, ignition timing, and the idle speed control system and also interrupts the operation of the air conditioning and EGR systems, and controls power to the fuel pump
electronic control module
