What is the engine?
The engine is a sensitive piece of machinery, powering your vehicle to get you from point A to point B. Modern engines are also referred to as internal combustion engines; they work by heating and combusting fuel inside to move your vehicle by powering pistons. The main outer portion of the engine is called the engine block, it is a large structure with large cylinders where the pistons can move inside as the engine is powered. Cylinders, and other passages built into the engine, allow coolant to flow, which in turn, cools the engine as it works.
There are different types of engines, usually defined by their number of cylinders, and in turn, the amount of power they can produce. Inside the engine is an area called a combustion chamber, this is where your engine creates the energy necessary to move pistons and power your vehicle. Inside the combustion chamber fuel is fired up and evaporated, being used to create energy which moves your car.
