The Engine

Hi everyone!

I figured that I should make a few posts explaining the most important car parts for anybody unfamiliar with cars who is reading/following this blog! This weeks post will be about the engine!

Ever wondered what a V8 engine means and how its different from a V6? Keep reading to find out.

To keep it brief, essentially you have a combustion chamber (also called the cylinder) where fuel, air,pressure and electricity combine to create a “mini-explosion” which then moves the pistons within the engine up and down. This movement of the pistons creates the power that moves our cars!

Now most cars have between 4,6,8 cylinders and it is this number of cylinders that determines if your car is a V4, V6 or V8!


I thought this was a well done video that explains the engine!
