Engine Parts Buying Guide
The Main Ones
As factory Honda engines go, there are too many to name. Some produce power, while others move parts mechanically. The core of each, though, is a block. It has a cylinder head with a piston for just about every cylinder. It also has a camshaft, crankshaft, spark plugs, valves, a valve cover, and an oil sump (or oil pan), among other parts.
What Each Does
The valve covers and head, found on top of the block, help seal it to protect the valves, not to mention other engine parts. They also help keep gas from escaping and prevent oil leakage.
The valves are for intake and exhaust. Intake valves adjust the engine's air and fuel ratio. Exhaust valves adjust the fumes the engine holds.
The camshaft coordinates valve activity, engine pistons compress that gas and oxygen mixture as they pump, and spark plugs start the fuel combustion process. The crankshaft turns the resulting power into rotary motion, and the driveshaft works with the transmission to turn that motion into wheel and tire movement. The oil pan or sump stores engine oil for lubrication during operation. Many other parts, like gears, sprockets, rings, and bearings, fit everything together correctly.
Signs of Problems with Them
In short, engine problems. Look for stalling, idling issues, acceleration trouble, and lower fuel efficiency. You may not even be able to start your vehicle at all. If you need to make repairs, the best engine components possible for the job are the genuine article.
