There's a lot that goes into the making of a car and into making it work. Considering how complicated they are these days, since vehicles work as not only transportation, but are also things of comfort, convenience, and connectivity (on the go), it's difficult to know what each and every part in your car does. Most people are fooled by shady mechanics who throw around terms they don't understand and might be too afraid to ask about, which in turn costs them in unnecessary or bogus repairs. 

Maybe you're one of those rare people who know so much about cars, you can tear into one and identify what each part does. If so, you're definitely unique, an elite car expert that gets how everything works from front to back. That's a valuable skill because you'll be able to know when mechanics are lying and can fix things, given enough time and the right tools. 

The best way to see if you qualify as a car nerd is to take this quiz. It will test your knowledge of an array of components and what they do, going well beyond just the engine compartment. Take the quiz now and test your knowledge of auto parts!
