Your Acura vehicle has many engine parts. All of them have a different job, and every job is vital to how well the car or SUV you love runs.
Intake valves, for example, regulate the mixture of air and fuel in the engine. Pistons pressurize the mix. Spark plugs ignite it, and exhaust valves regulate the resulting fumes. Valve covers protect the valves, a camshaft helps coordinate the latter's activities, and the cylinder head helps keep oil and gases from escaping meanwhile. A crankshaft turns the power generated during combustion into rotary motion, and the drive shafts and transmission use the motion to move wheels and tires. The oil sump or oil pan, however, stores motor oil, which engines use to lubricate everything.
There's plenty of other engine components to ensure everything in your Acura fits together the way it should, too. When any of these stop working, your Check Engine light may illuminate on the dash, and engine problems are sure to follow. Signs of them include:
- Increased exhaust and emissions
- A fuel economy drop
- Trouble speeding up
- Longer engine warm-up time
- Rough idling
- Being unable to start your vehicle at all
The results of an engine inspection will give you a better idea of what's going on. Plug in a code reader and run a thorough one.
