Performance Engine Parts

Everything from chrome valve covers to complete performance engines

It is time to drive back home, and you're finally behind the wheel. You insert the key, turn it, and...nothing happens. You've been trying for 15 minutes, but the engine still wouldn't crank. The fuel tank is full, and the battery is fully charged too. So what could have happened? Unfortunately, such a stressful situation often turns out to be a reality because it's enough to have only one improperly operating engine component for the whole vehicle not to start.

Engine Parts

Almost all vehicles use the so-called four-stroke combustion cycle to convert gasoline into motion. The name "four-stroke" was given because of the number of piston strokes included in this cycle. Those four separate steps must take place at the definite time and in the definite sequence in every cylinder of the engine to release the energy. The more cylinders the vehicle has, the more power can be produced in less time.

It's hard to understand what the basic thing was that kept your engine from running on that sad day. However, bad fuel mix, lack of spark, and lack of compression are the most widespread causes for such a situation. A bad fuel mix might occur for different reasons, including clogged air intake, impurity in the fuel, too much fuel given to the mix, etc. Lack of compression may be caused by the worn out piston rings or valves that allow a leak. A weak or nonexistent spark may be the result of a missing, cut, or worn out wire; or if the spark occurs too late or early, the ignition won't be possible either.

Except these most frequent problems, there are thousands of other minor things that can prevent your engine from running. It won't start if your battery is dead or if you're run out of oil. In case the bearings which let the crankshaft turn freely are worn out, or the valves can't open and close at the proper time, your engine won't operate correctly or won't work at all. These are only a few things from the list of the possible problems caused by the low-quality or defective engine components. That's why CARiD is here. We've stockpiled an amazing collection of quality performance engine parts right for your vehicle.

Look up "fan belt" in any modern automotive dictionary, and you'll typically find a definition that reads, "An endless belt used to transmit power from a crankshaft-driven pulley to a pulley driving the fan, alternator, or other engine accessory. It is usually V-shaped in cross section with the point of the V fitting into a groove in the pulley".
Does your ride have timing gears, a timing belt, or a timing chain? Is one better than the other? And perhaps most importantly, do I need to be concerned about the recommendation to replace the timing belt at a certain mileage interval? Welcome to our discussion of "engine timing".
Internal combustion engines are extremely complex and feature a wide array of components that rotate, move up and down, pump, seal, or remain stationary. When repairing or rebuilding your engine, you will come across many different terms when referencing repair manuals and ordering parts. We know it can be confusing, especially when the repair is complex. Even if...

The product is great but a little too over priced.
