A vehicle cannot drive without an engine. This makes it all the more important to maintain it and the corresponding spare parts regularly and to handle them with care. However, if something should fall victim to wear and tear, it is advisable to install original spare parts. In this category you will find innumerable original parts of the vehicle manufacturers divided into the respective product groups. How an engine is constructed and which components have which function, we have compiled for you at the bottom of the page.
The engine is the heart of every car. However, its mode of operation is very different. In addition to combustion engines, cars with electric and hybrid engines also have a firm place on the car market today. They are not necessarily dependent on the supply of fossil fuel. However, the petrol engine and the diesel engine are still the most widespread. After all, around 90 percent of all German cars run on petrol or diesel fuel.
As a classic vehicle engine consists of around 1,200 to 1,400 individual parts, defects can hardly be avoided in the course of a car's life. Especially wear and tear can make it necessary to replace spark plugs, glow plugs, filters, V-belts or timing belts. If a defective or worn component is not replaced in good time, this can limit the driving capability of the car or completely paralyse it. Here you can find out what you should look out for in a combustion engine and what differences exist between a petrol engine and a diesel engine.
Fuel combustion in gasoline engine:
Fuel combustion in diesel engines
The diesel engine does not require spark plugs due to the different type of fuel combustion. Instead, it causes the fuel to explode due to the extremely strong compression. Higher compression means more efficient fuel combustion and lower fuel consumption at the same time.
The spark plugs in the combustion engine are wear parts and should be replaced every 40,000 kilometers. A defect often leads to starting problems. To avoid this, you should order new spark plugs for your car on myparto.com in good time.
As already mentioned, a combustion engine consists of far more than 1,000 individual parts. Modern gasoline and diesel engines in particular are equipped with a great deal of technology and sensors that record and monitor every parameter of the engine. However, the basic components responsible for combustion are always the same:
Other essential components of an engine are:
The many individual parts can lead to various defects in the combustion engine. These hardly differ between gasoline and diesel engines. We have summarized two of the most common defects in the combustion engine for you here:
engines consist of many individual parts that are more or less affected by wear. While some defects in the petrol and diesel engines do not lead to any restrictions, others restrict the driving behaviour or cause the engine to fail completely. We recommend that only original parts be used for repairs. They are tested and particularly durable and ensure that you can always rely on your car.
