Each and every component in an automobile has significance. Modern day vehicles have become a great deal more complex and have many more electronic parts than the muscle cars of the past. Although there are many complex parts included in modern automobiles, some of the parts are a mainstay — common and essential for every vehicle. Some of the important components include:
Engine: One of the most important components of a vehicle includes the engine. This is the most important component of an automobile. Different types of fuels are used by engines like diesel, ethanol, gasoline, and now even electricity. The performance of a vehicle depends on its engine and it is the heart of every car.
Gear Box (Transmission): This is also known as transmission which has a number of gears in it. These gears transfer the engine’s power to the wheels of the vehicle. There are many types of gearbox parts in different cars. A transmission is available in two types: the manual and the automatic models. As the speed of the vehicle varies, the gears can be switched from one ratio to another. The power of the engine is transferred to the wheels of the vehicle with the help of the gears. Nowadays, most of the vehicles have automatic gears or transmissions. The gear box is one of the most difficult parts of the vehicle to work on.
Brakes: Another extremely important component of a vehicle is the brakes which help reduce and halt the speed of the vehicle. When the brakes are applied, a hydraulic fluid is transmitted through the steel pipes to the wheels of the vehicles. Obviously, the failure of this system may lead to some serious accidents. Though previously the entire system used to work upon human intervention, nowadays sensors are being installed in cars so that the car itself can sense the necessity of braking and take action. Whether you have a manual or sensor braking system, it is very important to maintain the break parts such as break pads.
Drive Axle: Another important component includes the drive axle which helps propels the vehicle. Think of it as a large bar connecting the two wheels. The drive axle allow the vehicle's operator to turn the wheels and control the vehicle. This is one of the largest auto parts in every car.
Oil Filters: Filters are essential in removing dust and abrasive particles from the engine oil. Such particles can harm the engine and prevent proper functioning. Oil filters are mainly used to segregate the engine oil from unwanted debris and dust particles. Most of the oil filters are classified as high efficiency filters as it segregates abrasive materials from the engine oil.
Chassis: The automotive chassis is the frame of the vehicle which supports the various parts such as engine, brakes, steering, axle, tires and so forth. If the engine is the heart of the vehicle, the chassis is the skeleton. It is the most important structure of the vehicle. Automotive chassis are usually made of light steel material or other sturdy materials like aluminum. The chassis keeps the vehicle stiff and tensile. It ensures low vibration and noise in the entire vehicle. There are various types of chassis used in vehicles which include the backbone chassis, ladder chassis and the monochrome chassis. These days most of the vehicles use steel plated chassis as it ensures strength and durability.
