Anatomy of an automobile

Let us start with some primary learning to make sure you are as informed as possible when it comes to your vehicle. This is not only for day-to-day maintenance but to make you believe what we do when you trust us to keep your car in the finest condition. We are introducing the first of three part series especially covering the Vehicle Systems and parts. In this blog, you will understand the Engine, Fuel System, Transmission, and Emission Systems.


As soon as the vehicle is detected with major damage in the engine, the first reaction is to purchase a new vehicle. In some cases, it makes sense but as soon as the expenses strike, the need for a new vehicle diminishes. It is also more economical for you to have your engine rebuilt rather than purchasing a new car. A rebuilt engine is one that is remanufactured to prescribed standards and specification.

Fuel System

Car’s fuel system works with the rest of engine control system to deliver the best performance with lowest emissions. The fuel system transfers fuel from the fuel tank and passes it through a fuel filter for cleaning before it arrives at the injectors.  A pressure regulator controls fuel pressure to ensure good engine performance under a variety of speed and load conditions. When the fuel injector is activated a metered amount of fuel is sprayed into the engine. Some vehicles use a return line system to return unused fuel back in the tank. Your car’s fuel filter should be replaced and changed depending on its individual specifications.

Emission System

Your car’s emission system helps the engine to run cleanly and efficiently in all operating conditions by controlling the emissions, pollutants, and exhaust. It does this by using an array of sensors, computerized engine controls, and the exhaust components. If your car is not performing as it should be or the Check Engine Light goes on. For those who do not know what is Check Engine Light, the definition goes like this “when the electronic-control system finds a problem it cannot adjust, the computer turns on a yellow warning indicator and stores a trouble code in its memory.” Coming back on the discussion on what should you do when Check Engine Light goes on-have it inspected immediately. If the problem is not resolved as soon as possible, it can reduce your mileage per gallon or fuel or cause your vehicle to pollute the air.


Transmission role is to take the power and torque which helps the wheels to move. It can automatic or manual and therefore, plays a major role in the overall dependability of your car. Slipping, hesitation, bucking, grinding gears or difficulty in shifting can be the first signs of a problem that needs to be addressed.
