Your Toyota engine is composed of a number of parts, each of which is an important part of producing the power you need. Since each performs a different role, they’re all essential to your engine's efficient operation.
The Parts of Your Engine
First, there's the cylinder head. It helps prevent both oil leaks and gases from escaping. Pistons pressurize the fuel and oxygen mix in the combustion chamber. Spark plugs ignite that mix while exhaust valves regulate the fume levels. The valve covers protect the engine valves, while the camshaft helps regulate their activity. Your crankshaft converts engine power into rotary motion, which the drive shaft and transmission use to power your wheels. The oil sump, or oil pan, stores the motor oil that your engine needs to keep the parts well lubricated. Then there are the many other engine components, such as rings, gaskets, bearing, and gears, that help ensure the proper fit you rely on.
How to Spot Failing Engine Parts
Eventually, even the best engine parts can begin to wear out and fail. Signs of this include:
- Higher exhaust emissions
- Uneven engine idle
- Trouble accelerating
- Engine stalls
- The "Check Engine" dash light comes on
