Basic Car Parts Guide

As a car owner, you know the basics: tires, brakes, wiper blades. You even know that you have to get the oil changed and tires rotated every few months. When it comes to automotive knowledge, that’s about where it ends – and that’s normal. For most people, knowing the basics and how to maintain your car is enough. However, our Toyota Parts Center in Orlando encourages you to learn more about car parts. Having a more in-depth knowledge of auto parts will help you better understand how your car works and even help you recognize any problems!

Toyota of Clermont’s Car Parts Guide

When you’re driving to and from work each day, you don’t put a lot of thought into how your car is running and what makes it work. This all changes when your car breaks down or won’t start and you’re stuck; thinking about why your car won’t run and why it won’t work. If you’re looking for a little insight into the inner workings of your car, our Toyota Parts Center in Orlando can help with a car parts guide for the most important ones!

As far as making your car turn on, run, and move, your car requires hundreds of different auto parts and components, including:

Spark plugs – located in the cylinders of your car’s engine, spark plugs create a spark to light the air/fuel mixture. This ignition is what starts the motor.

Pistons – also in your engine’s cylinders, the pistons move up and down to create an air-tight pressure and an eventual explosion in the combustion chamber.

Head gaskets – with oil and coolant circulating through the engine block, a head gasket creates a seal to separate the two. Signs of a blown head gasket are plumes of white smoke and oil in your coolant.

Fuel pump – your engine won’t start without a working fuel pump! The fuel in your gas tank gets delivered to your engine by the fuel pump pushing it through the various lines.

Alternator – if you’re having trouble getting your car started and to stay running, you may have a failing alternator.

Serpentine belt – snaking its way through the engine bay, the serpentine belt delivers power to components like the fuel pump, alternator, and water pump.

Radiator – at the heart of your car’s cooling system is the radiator. The radiator is responsible for removing heat from the coolant that flows through the engine. Without a radiator, the engine of the car will overheat.

There are dozens of Orlando car parts that aren’t necessary to keep your car moving, but they make your drive time safer and more convenient! Some of these parts include the:

Muffler – used to muffle the sounds of the exhaust and point fumes away from the car.

Power steering pump – while it may be a bit hard to steer, your car will work without a power steering pump.
