Engine Replacement

What is an engine?

Engine replacement in your future? An engine is a machine that converts potential energy into mechanical or thermal energy using gasoline. There are multiple types of engines as well. There is the V8 engine, the V6 engine, the straight engine, and the flat engine. Some things that have engines are cars, boats, airplanes, and trains. Some of the most common brands that make engines are Honda, ToyotaMercedes, and Volvo. 

Honda makes engines for many different things. But, did you know that they also make engines for more than just cars? They make engines for pressure washers, lawn mowers, and construction equipment. Honda began making engines in the 1940s. 

There are many parts to the engine. The camshaft is one of them. The camshaft’s job is to turn on the intake and exhaust valves. Another part is the sump. The sump will collect the unwanted liquids, like water or other chemicals, in the engine. The drive belt connects the alternator, AC, power steering, and other parts together! 

The connecting rod connects the pistons to the crankshaft. The flywheel attaches to the rotating shaft for a smooth transfer of power from the motor to the car. Last, the pistons. The pistons transfer force from the expanding gasoline inside your car, to the crankshaft. There is a total of 4-8 pistons inside of your engine.

Engine History 

The steam engine was built in 1860. It was invented by Entienne Lenoir. It was an internal combustion steam engine. This engine ran off of illuminating cool gas and air. This engine, however, was not very successful. It had a power stroke at each end of the cylinder. The car to feature this engine was the 1863 Hippomobile. It was Hydrogen fuel powered, had one cylinder, and featured the engine built by Lenoir. The top speed of the Hippomobile was 9KM, or about 6 miles, in 3 hours. 
The V8 engine was built in 1904 but, it wasn’t used until 1914. The V8 engine was built by Leon Levavasseur. The first car to ever have a V8 engine was the 1914 Cadillac. This first V8 engine had an L head, a single iron casting, a flat plane crankshaft, side valves, and an electrical starter. 
The V6 engine was invented in 1906. It was invented by the Marmon Motor Car Company and was put in pickup trucks and carryalls. This V6 engine becomes popular in production after world war 2. V6 engines are short. They are one of the smaller engine options which makes them perfect for larger cars. Sports cars have flat 6 engines because the vibrations form V6 engines are too intense for them. The largest V6 engine was 7.8L. It was called the GMC V6. This engine was used in the 1962 GMC 6500.  

How does an engine work?

First, the intake valves open. Then, the piston descends and sucks the air/fuel mixture into the intake chamber. After that, the intake valves close and the piston rises up, compressing the air/fuel mixture. Then, an electrical spark will ignite the mixture and make the piston desand. 

The rod will take the energy created by this and transfer it to the crankshaft. Again, the position will rise up and push air through the open exhaust valves and then release it through the exhaust pipe. 

All the pistons will take turns firing. The cams and camshafts push the spring and allow the valves to open and close. Cam gears, timing belts, and timing chains link the camshafts and pistons together. The crankshaft’s job is to translate power out of the engine. Every time these spin, it is one RPM. RPM stands for revolutions per minute. 

The engine block will hold the crankshaft and cylinders. The cylinder head will hold the valves, ports, cylinders, and cams. The flywheel will sit on one side of the crankshaft for the transmission to connect and where the starter can connect.
