Cars’ engines gain their power from the operation of multiple pistons, each of which is spurred into motion by small, controlled explosions. Depending on the type of engine, these parts range in number, with the rule of thumb being that the greater the number being used, generally the greater the horsepower. It cannot be understated how important keeping each piston in good condition is to the overall performance of all cars.
If you are experiencing a loss in power from your vehicle’s engine, there is a chance that one of the parts in this mechanism is not functioning correctly. The term “not firing on all cylinders” refers to a situation where one cylinder is not operating, which may be as a result of fuel or air not being properly used in the combustion process. Correcting this issue will restore lost power, but the cost involved may vary depending on if the engine in question has a fuel injection system or not. It will be clear to see when the problem has been correctly resolved, as lost power will be regained and your vehicle will once again operate at its full potential.
Each piston is housed in a cylinder, which contains the combustion process and keeps the mechanics operating smoothly. Fuel or air not being properly applied in the combustion process can lead to problems. In addition, as the moving parts come into contact and there is an enormous risk of wear or damage occurring, therefore oil lubrication is very important. It is for this reason that essential oil is topped up regularly. A range of added lubricants are on offer, which further improve the lubrication process and can greatly extend the life of cars’ engines.
