Engine parts in Oceanside, Ca
Cylinders contain the moving pistons mentioned above and almost all modern engines have at least two. How these cylinders are arranged contributes to different advantages and disadvantages, costs and performance, and some arrangements are better for some vehicles than others.
As mentioned in the four-stroke process, the spark plug ignites the air and fuel creating a combustion process that is harnessed as energy and that occurs hundreds of times per minute.
The intake valve opens to allow in air and fuel, and the exhaust to release after combustion. During stroke 3 and 4 (compression and combustion) the chamber is sealed.
Pistons and piston rings
The piece of metal that rotates inside the cylinder and the rings which act as a seal on the piston to keep fuel, air and exhaust from entering the oil sump and vice versa. As these seals age the seal is not as tight and the car will burn more oil.
The connecting arm between the crankshaft and piston.
Acting like an arm on a jack-in-the-box, as it turns it moves the piston in a circular motion throughout the combustion process.
Where the oil sits at the bottom, it acts as a lubricant during the process to keep the crankshaft (metal) from meeting the engine block (metal).
Liter engines in Oceanside, Ca
During the four-stroke process, the amount of air that is pulled in and expelled as exhaust is measured in liters, and increases in volume as the size of the piston increases. This is also the estimate of the highest amount of power that the engine can produce by liter as horsepower.
Engine problem in Oceanside, Ca
One of three issues is likely the root cause of engine trouble: lack of a spark, compression, or a bad fuel mix.
Bad fuel mix
Essentially, either the engine is getting too much of or not enough air or fuel which will result in an incomplete combustion process. This could be caused by running out of gas, a clogged valve, an impurity in the fuel, or some other problem in the fuel system.
Lack of compression
If the third stroke does not occur, it is because there is an issue in compression of the air and fuel mixture. This could occur of the piston rings are not properly sealed and the fuel necessary for combustion enters the piston, the valves are not closing during combustion, or there is a hole elsewhere in the cylinder that usually appear between the cylinder and the cylinder head in a gasket the seals the cylinder. A hole here will result in fuel leaking into the cylinder.
Lack of spark
This is an electrical issue. If anywhere along the spark plug including the wires that connects it, there is a fault, the plug will result in either a weak spark a late spark or no spark at all.
