Your original factory engine has five major parts to it. They work together to provide the power you need, when and where you need it. Not only does the engine move your car or SUV down the road, but it also helps many other parts move. The engine block is the main part of the motor, to which all other parts connect. The combustion that propels all activity happens inside the block. The pistons compress the air/fuel mixture, pumping up and down to pressure the mix and convert it to rotary motion. The cylinder head sits on top of the engine block, sealing it and keeping gases contained. The valves, spark plugs, and other parts connect to this piece. The crankshaft sits in the lower section of the block. Its function is to take the pumping motion of the pistons and convert it to the rotary motion that helps make the tires spin. Finally, the camshaft opens and closes the valves in sync with the rest of the parts.
OEM Engine Parts are Best for Your Vehicle
There are other essential parts of the engine, such as the valves, rings, bearings, and gaskets. These all serve to keep things running smoothly. Eventually, engine parts can wear out. This can result in stalling, acceleration issues, a loss of fuel efficiency, or rough idling. Extreme problems can keep you from even starting your car or SUV. The good news is that you can find the replacement parts your engine needs, straight from the manufacturer to your home. Our online parts department has plenty in stock and ready to ship right out.
