Engine Parts

The engine can contain many parts here is just a few categories you would look in. 

 

Belt Drive 

Belt drives are a part of many different vehicles. Electric cars use more belt drives than other vehicles, the water pumps in most vehicles use belt drives, and modern vehicles with power steering or accessories may also need belt drives for those functions such as Belt Pulley, Timing Belt, V-Belt and V-Ribbed Belt to name a few.

The specifics of a belt drive's design and the quality of its materials can strongly affect its lifespan, and a worn or broken belt drive can be the source of various problems with your vehicle. Many modern vehicles use a single belt drive, called a "serpentine belt", for everything multiple belt drives would otherwise do. As such, if there's a problem with your vehicle's serpentine belt, it needs to be replaced immediately.

 

Engine Parts

The Engine is clearly a very crucial part of the car. It takes in fuel and puts out power that is used, eventually, to turn the wheels. Most cars today use a traditional Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) that was first invented by Étienne Lenoir in 1859 and was adapted into the modern version much more like what we know now by Siegfried Marcus in 1864.

Engines are are commonly described using:

  • Cylinders - Usually three, four, six or eight. Clearly the more cylinders the more fuel you are using in each cycle and so will have a higher power output.
  • Engine Size - The product of the number of cylinders and the volume of each cylinder gives the Engine Size. Typically measured in litres.
  • Petrol and Diesel - These are the two most common types of fuel. Generally, diesels are more economical that petrol engines, but diesel cars are typically more expensive to buy in the first place so it only makes financial sense for higher-mileage drivers.

The position of the engine within the car varies. Front, mid and rear placements are all possible and are determined by weight distribution and wheel drive.

 

Fuel Mixtures Parts 

Car engines contain a number of small formation parts and components to ensure your car runs smoothly. We supply a plethora of fuel mixture formation parts for different manufacturers, makes, and models, including air pressure sensors, fuel pressure sensors, and boost pressure sensors. Other components include injection pumps and fuel temperature sensors.

When an individual component of your formation system fails, it can have an effect on the engine, and your car might malfunction. Whether it's a specific sensor or pump, it is imperative that you choose the right part for your car to avoid damage. 

 

Fuel Supply Systems

The fuel supply system in your car includes various intricate parts that help to keep your vehicle running. Without these components delivering fuel to the engine, your car won't work. Whether you are a professional looking for replacement parts, or a customer wanting to fix your own vehicle, you will be able to view our product range on our website.

Whether you are looking for fuel filters, pumps, control valves, feed units, sender unit, regulator or switchs, we have everything you need in one place. You will also find air supply parts such as air filters and intercoolers for a wide range of car makes and models. We supply products from the biggest parts manufacturers around the world.

 

Spark and Glow Ignition 

Starting problems and irregular running on vehicle engines can often be traced to the ignition system, and all engines will run either a spark or glow ignition depending on their fuel type. Much confusion exists with regards to how both systems operate, and many people assuming they are identical.

Petrol engines run a spark ignition with a separate spark plug for each cylinder. This electrode creates a spark within the cylinder that ignites the fuel/air mixture and provides motive force. Spark plugs degrade over time and will need to be replaced.

The plug must be the correct type for the engine, and great care must be taken when replacing spark plugs as the thread on the cylinder head is very prone to damage. Cross-threading the spark plug can result in the costly replacement of cylinder parts.

Diesel engines use glow plugs to warm up the cylinders prior to cold starting. The fuel/air mixture in diesel engines will auto-ignite under compression, so the glow plugs are only used to aid start-up. Faulty glow plugs may cause starting problems, and should be replaced according to the manufacturer's specification.
