If you’ve ever wondered how exactly you car’s engine gets you from point A to point B, then you’re in luck! We recently found this very handy animated infographic that includes a step-by-step and color coded walk-through about the parts of your engine and what they do.

Whether you’re the kind of person who doesn’t know a crankshaft from a manifold gasket, or you eat, sleep, and breathe cars, it’s a pretty interesting and informative graphic. Even a little bit mesmerizing if you stare at the 4 stroke cycle for too long…

Just by taking a couple minutes to go over the graphic (and you may find you self reading it even longer… pretty mesmerizing) you can learn what you need to know in order to better diagnose car problems and become a little more car literate, which is always a good thing!

Knowing more about how your engine, and your car in general, can help when it come to diagnosing potential problems. And even if you’re not chomping at the bit to get under the hood yourself, you’ll always be able to bring any problem you’re having to NTX Transmissions in Inglewood. Stop by and talk with one of our technicians who are always happy to help!
