It is estimated that a typical car is assembled from more than 10,000 independent components that cannot be disassembled. Specially manufactured cars with extremely complicated structures, such as F1 racing cars, can have as many as 20,000 independent components.



Of course, it is estimated that no one can accurately calculate the number of parts of a car. The greater the number of car parts, it does not mean that the car's performance is better, but it means that its reliability will be more difficult to guarantee.


The engine is the power unit of a car, and is mainly composed of a body, a crank-link mechanism, an air distribution mechanism, a cooling system, a lubrication system, a fuel system, and an ignition system (the diesel engine does not have an ignition system).


Cooling system: Generally composed of water tank, water pump, radiator, fan, thermostat, water temperature meter and water discharge switch. Automobile engines use two cooling methods, namely air cooling and water cooling. Generally, automobile engines are mostly cooled with antifreeze.



Lubrication system: The engine lubrication system is composed of oil pump, filter, oil filter, oil passage,pressure limiting valve, oil gauge, pressure plug and oil dipstick.



Fuel system: Gasoline engine fuel system consists of gasoline tank, gasoline meter, gasoline pipe, gasoline filter, gasoline pump, injector, air filter, intake and exhaust manifold, etc.



Ignition system: It consists of ignition power, ignition switch, ignition coil, spark plug and high-voltage wire.
