No matter the make of your vehicle, there's one thing that's true. The engine is composed of many different parts, each of which is essential in providing the engaging driving experience you expect.
The cylinder head, for example, helps keep gases inside the combustion chamber and prevent oil leaks. Pistons pressurize the fuel and oxygen mix that the engine consumes to produce power. The intake valves control the levels in the air-fuel mix, while spark plugs ignite that mix. Exhaust valves regulate the fume levels. Valve covers shield the engine's valves from harm, and a camshaft manages the valve activity. Your crankshaft converts the engine power into the rotary motion that your drive shaft and transmission use to turn the wheels. Lastly, the oil pan, or oil sump, houses the motor oil that the engine needs lubricating the many moving parts.
