Valve Train

The valve train controls the operation of the intake and exhaust valves. The intake valve controls the flow of the air/fuel mixture and allows it into the combustion chamber, whereas the exhaust valve directs spent gasses out of the combustion chamber once combustion has taken place.

A valve train is a system of smaller components located within the engine. Its exact location depends on engine type and design.
