Cylinder Head


The cylinder is the core of the car engine. Within the cylinder, a piston moves up and down to compress the gases which ignite and cause combustion. These exhaust gases are pushed out following the combustion, resulting in the rotation of crankshaft and turning of wheels. The process allows the car to move. Apart from this process, a cylinder head is located on the top of the cylinder and closes it. This is the further sealed by a head gasket, preventing the leakage of oil or coolant in the cylinder.

In circumstances of engine overheating, leaking or misfiring, car owners must consider all the warning signs as serious indicators to much needed repair.
