Engine System

The Beating Heart of a Vehicle

The engine is the heart of a vehicle and receives temperature, position and air flow data from other vehicle systems and uses this information to transform air and fuel into power and motion. An engine is composed of two different sections – the engine block and cylinder head – that work in harmony to create the power needed to propel a vehicle down the road.

SYSTEM Summary

How Does a Vehicle’s Engine Work?

Every hour, tens of thousands of miniature explosions take place within each engine cylinder. These explosions force a complex system of pistons, valves, camshafts and crankshaft to work in unison to ignite the fuel and generate engine power, which is then transferred to the transmission via a torque converter and finally to the wheels.
