A car could have over 30,000 individual automotive parts, when counting every part down to the smallest screws and many of these are contained within the engine itself.
Here is a list of the basic engine parts: engine block, piston, connecting rod, crankshaft, crankshaft casing or oil sump, engine head, valves, camshaft valve spring and tappet, timing belt, spark plug, gasket, piston rings.
If any of these parts wear out or become faulty, they could cause the engine to cease which can not only be annoying, could cause safety issues as well.
The modern automatic transmission is by far, the most complicated mechanical component in today's automobile. Automatic transmissions contain mechanical systems, hydraulic systems, electrical systems and computer controls, all working together in perfect harmony which goes virtually unnoticed until there is a problem with one of these parts.
The transmission is a device that is connected to the back of the engine and sends the power from the engine to the drive wheels. An automobile engine runs at its best at a certain RPM (Revolutions Per Minute) range and it is the transmission's job to make sure that the power is delivered to the wheels while keeping the engine within that range.
The driveline is the vehicle system that pushes an automobile forward or in reverse. It runs between a vehicle’s transmission and drive axles and transmits power that turns the wheels.
If there is a fault in the driveline, the power created in the engine would stop in the transmission system and never turn the wheels.
The parts of a driveline are: driveshafts, gearboxes, linkages, hub nuts, prop shafts & component, seals, stub axles, synchro parts, transmission oil, wheel bearings and hubs, wheel bolts and nuts.
