Learn more about the structures of a car using these hands-on car diagrams that we have collected for you! In these 101 Diagramss, the structures of car are illustrated in clear pictures. Follow these diagrams to study more about car parts! We’ll start by giving you the BW car diagram below.
There’s a lot of parts in car, and based on the types and brand, there might be some differences between one car to another. In the following car diagrams, you’ll see some basic parts of a car. A piston is a cylindrical piece of metal that moves up and down inside the cylinder. The crankshaft turns the piston’s up and down motion into circular motion just like a crank on a jack-in-the-box does. The camshaft is the brain of the engine. It works in conjunction with the crankshaft via a timing belt to make sure intake and outtake valves open and close at just the right time for optimal engine performance. The camshaft uses egg-shaped lobes that extend across it to control the timing of the opening and closing of the valves. You can spot those parts in the following parts diagrams.
A spark plug is a device for delivering electric current from an ignition system to the combustion chamber of a spark-ignition engine to ignite the compressed fuel/air mixture by an electric spark, while containing combustion pressure within the engine There are also valves, divided into two types: intake valves and outtake valves. The intake and exhaust valves open at the proper time to let in air and fuel and to let out exhaust. Note that both valves are closed during compression and combustion so that the combustion chamber is sealed. The connecting rod connects the piston to the crankshaft. It can rotate at both ends so that its angle can change as the piston moves and the crankshaft rotates.
