The modern gasoline-powered engine
At its most basic level the gasoline-powered internal combustion engine found in most cars and trucks is a fairly simple machine that converts fuel into energy by using a spark to ignite gas vapour in an enclosed chamber. The resulting explosion drives a piston, which turns a crank, which spins a shaft, which turns some gears, which eventually makes the tires go around, thus propelling the vehicle forward or backward. Simple, right?
Well, it used to be, but this is the 21st Century and the internal combustion engine (ICE), like most things, has come a long way. The electronics and computers found in modern vehicles have taken this basic engine and made it very complicated indeed and even more complicated for auto repair.
