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.
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.
Wells Vehicle Electronics offers a wide range of sensors for engine management needs. We manufacture and rigorously test our products to meet or exceed OE fit, form and function so drivers can feel confident their replacement parts will perform to the highest standard.
In variable valve timing engines, the valve train controls the timing of the intake and exhaust valves. Wells VVT components include VVT solenoids and VVT sprockets.
Engine sensors monitor various functions and communicate performance and operational data to the engine system so it can regulate throttle position, turbo boost, pressure and more.
Engine Oil Pressure Switch
This switch is designed to monitor oil pressure within the engine block and alert the driver and the engine control module of an oil pressure concern. It may also control the oil pressure gauge and fuel pump.
