The car engine is made up of many, many parts. If one fails, even the smallest part, chances are that your car is not moving anywhere very soon. And that is nothing short of a pain in the neck!
But how exactly does the engine in your vehicle work? Well, the engine provides the necessary power that will help move a car. This power is fed through the transmission, either manual or automatic, to the differential which, in turn, will rotate the wheels of the car. Sounds simple enough but it isn't, really. How those engineers worked this all out all those years ago still boggles the mind, don't you think?
And all those parts have to work in perfect harmony. Pistons moving, valves opening at the right time, spark plugs firing at the right instance, gasses moving out of the engine ... these are just a few things that are needed to run like clockwork.
But now let's get onto the task at hand. In this quiz, we will ask you a range of questions that relate to the engines, and it's up to you to show just how much you know about this incredible invention that we certainly cannot live without.
Up for the challenge? Good! Let's see how you do!
