Engine and Cooling

Engine and Cooling

If your car has overheated or the engine and cooling system has had a fault, you need to find a local engine and cooling expert as soon as possible.

A car cannot operate proficiently with an engine and cooling problem. The radiator, lubricants, water, engine fans, water pump and many other components are responsible for keeping a car engine at the correct temperature.

There are a number of issues that could cause problems within the cooling and lubricating systems, leaks being the most obvious.

If engine coolant leaks out of your car via a hole somewhere in the system, the problem will manifest itself quickly as a warning light will flash up. The same problem can affect the lubrication system and engine oil can escape via a hole and cause problems for the entire car engine.

If the engine and cooling systems run into trouble, a myriad of engine parts will suffer as a result.

When a car engine operates, a huge amount of heat is generated through the process of combustion and motion between car parts.

Friction is the chief culprit as the rapid rubbing of metal generates heat. The function of engine oil is to lubricate the parts within the engine so a dangerous amount of friction, and therefore heat, never builds up and causes problems.

However, if there is not enough engine oil to keep everything cool, serious problems will arise and components will be at risk of damage which will cost you huge amounts of money!

There are innumerable problems which could arise and many of the following parts could be seriously damaged as a result of a problematic engine and cooling system.

To help you understand a little more about the parts that may be affected from overheating and what you should do if you need new car parts, read the full guide below.

Car Parts Near Me

Whether you need engine parts, car body parts or any kind of car parts near me, you need to understand what you are doing.

At WhoCanFixMyCar.com we recommend that you DO NOT buy your own car parts and take them to a garage for fitting.

The likelihood is that you will not purchase the correct part or the garage that you go to will refuse to fit the engine part. You will then be left with a hole in your pocket!

The world of car parts is big and confusing. There are a huge number of brands and types of car parts so unless you are a trained mechanic, it is not advisable to buy your own car parts.

WhoCanFixMyCar works with a number of parts manufacturers and suppliers who sell directly to garages throughout the UK. Only trained mechanics know the best option for cars when it comes to fitting car parts and engine parts.

When it comes to engine parts specifically, you cannot afford to take a guess and buy online.

You might be able to get close to the best tyre to fit but there is still a huge amount of disparity in between brands and the type of tyre you can fit.

So when it comes to engine parts, as an average driver, you have no chance of knowing!

To help you understand a little more about the different parts operating inside a car engine, we have created this simple guide so you can understand the function at the very least. You will therefore be able to understand what a mechanic means when they say they need to replace a certain part.

Engine Parts

Engine Cylinder

Engine cylinders sit at the core of the engine and they are responsible for pushing the pistons up and down to create energy and movement to move the car.

Cylinders are commonly arranged side by side in a bank or engine block. When it comes to engine parts, cylinders are buried deep inside the car and require lots of engines parts to be removed to get to them including the timing chain, pushrod head, rocker cover, rocker-shaft, rocker arms, cylinder head and lots of nuts and bolts.

Crankshaft

Crankshafts are generally made from steel and sit below the cylinders and pistons in the engine block. Their job is to convert the vertical movement of the pistons into a rotation to be transferred through to the flywheel and then the transmission. The crankshaft has crank pins along its length that line up horizontally with the pistons above and form the ‘stepped’ orientation of the shaft itself.

Spark Plugs

Spark plugs are responsible for igniting the air and fuel inside a car engine to create combustion. Spark plugs are critical parts of a car engine and they must fire at the right time in order for a car to start. It is common for spark plugs to fail and mechanics will regularly check if them if a car is failing to start.

Engine Valves

Engine valves are responsible for the intake and release of air and exhaust fumes. Combustion is only possible when fuel and oxygen combines to ignite inside the engine. The valves close when the ignition happens as they compress the air to increase the pressure and strength of reaction as a result.

Pistons

A piston is a cylindrical piece of metal that moves up and down the cylinder. The engine parts are subject to wear and tear just like any other engine part and may need to be replaced after a few years.

Piston Rings

Piston rings provide a sliding seal between the outer edge of the piston and the inner edge of the cylinder. The rings serve two purposes:

They prevent the fuel/air mixture and exhaust in the combustion chamber from leaking into the sump during compression and combustion.

They keep oil in the sump from leaking into the combustion area, where it would be burned and lost.

Most cars that "burn oil" and have to have a quart added every 1,000 miles are burning it because the engine is old and the rings no longer seal things properly.

Other engine parts

There are a lot of other parts in the engine which a car cannot function without, modern cars are usually fitted with turbo chargers and on-board computers called ECU’s. There are also a huge number of sensors fitted to most of the engine parts in order to feed information on engine performance back to the driver.

The cooling system and lubrication system are also critical for successful engine performance.

Finding a mechanic you can trust to do a good job and charge a fair price, is not always easy which is why we have simplified the process.

We work with a network of over 15,196 mechanics and garages across the UK so we can find the right workshop to fit engine parts.
