About This Quiz

Remove your car's engine and you aren't going anywhere!

With a faulty engine, a car is useless, unless you can convince people to push you everywhere. But let's be serious. Car engines consist of thousands of parts, all working in unison to transfer the power the engine makes into energy that makes your car move.

How did they manage to figure that all out over 100 years ago when the first engines were made? It's incredible, if you think about it.

But all those working parts not only need to work in perfect harmony to make an engine run. They must do so efficiently as well. An engine that isn't running properly is just going to cost you money somewhere down the line.

So just how much do you know about the internal combustion engine and car engines, in particular? Do you know your exhaust manifolds from your mufflers, your oil pump from your fuel pump or your spark plug from your glow plug?

You do? Then this is the quiz for you! Be warned, however, it's a tough one.

So take your time and let's see how well you do.

Good luck. You can do this!
