    When your car or truck burns gasoline, dangerous gases containing carbon monoxide, unburned hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxide. Your exhaust and emission system expels that gas out of your vehicle, sometimes through a turbo charger to increase engine power and usually through a catalytic converter to reduce air pollution, through a muffler to reduce the sound and finally out through your tailpipe.

    Your vehicle gets its motion from the work done by your engine. In cars and trucks using an internal combustion engine, gas and oxygen are compressed by pistons and then ignited by your spark plugs. This mini explosion provides the force needed to turn your crankshaft which powers the vehicle's movement. This is truly the heart of your automobile. To keep things running smoothly, the engine will need to be maintained. If you have engine trouble, talking about it here might save you a bundle of cash, plus help other readers learn how to diagnose, repair and maintain their engine.
