  CanadianDriver: Feature - 4 cylinder engines
That may be about to change: recent advances in engine technology have created a new generation of four cylinder engines that are proving to be as powerful and as smooth as many larger V6 engines without sacrificing fuel economy, say industry experts.
Perhaps the most important new development in improving four cylinder engine performance is variable valve timing, a computer controlled system that varies the amount of time the valves stay open at different engine speeds.
Engine subframes mounted on rubber pads isolate the powertrain from the body, and some manufacturers are using computer controlled hydraulic engine mounts to cancel out engine vibrations.

 How an Automobile Engine Works
The crankshaft is located below the cylinders on an in-line engine, at the base of the V on a V-type engine and between the cylinder banks on a flat engine.
A cylinder head is bolted to the top of each bank of cylinders to seal the individual cylinders and contain the combustion process that takes place inside the cylinder.
The oil pump is mounted at the bottom of the engine in the oil pan and is connected by a gear to either the crankshaft or the camshaft.

Engineers refer to what is known as "stratified charging": the fuel is injected into the air compressed by the piston at a relatively late stage.
In this new generation of engines, the standard version and CGI version have different plastic pipe arrangements: in the direct-injection version, they are separated into two separate lines per cylinder before actually entering the cylinder head.
Made of diecast aluminium (previous engine: cast iron), the crankcase is one of the major components in the lightweight design concept at the heart of the new four-cylinder engine.

 Troubleshooting One-Cylinder Engines
One-cylinder engines are most common in sizes from 2 to 12 horsepower, carrying with it the same basic characteristics of any gasoline engine.
Trouble-shooting the one-cylinder, however, is somewhat different from the 4, 6, or 8-cylinder.
For that reason the one-cylinder engine is a harder one to trouble-shoot.

 Hirth Text.html
Most engines in the light aircraft market were designed for a specific use on the ground and then altered to be used in aircraft.
Because the cylinders are still an aluminum alloy, their expansion properties as well as their excellent thermal conductivity are virtually unchanged.
Engines are warranted for a full year plus a 3 year pro-rated crankshaft warranty.

 Laser Engines
The engine in every motor car is a 4-stroke and even the small engines for strimmers (weed wackers) are changing from 2-stroke to 4-stroke to meet the latest noise and exhaust emission requirements.
The valves are inclined to the rear of the engine reducing the height of the engine.
As the engine warms up the steel bolts tighten further against the expansion of the aluminium cylinder so it is impossible for a the cylinder head to come loose when the engine is running.

 Olds FAQ -- Engines   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
I also think that Olds engines are called torque engines because they usually produce a higher torque figure than hp, but i believe this is due to the torque peak being reached at a relatively low rpm.
The first number indicates the year the engine was assembled and the remaining numbers refer to the sequence number of the engine assembly (for identification at the engine assembly plant).
The engine (pushrod version) was developed in the mid-60s for anticipated introduction in 1970, but was killed in late 1967 as a result of the coming emissions controls and the insurance industry putting the screws to muscle cars.

 Animated Engines, Two Cylinder Stirling
Stirling engines feature a completely closed system in which the working gas (usually air but sometimes helium or hydrogen) is alternately heated and cooled by shifting the gas to different temperature locations within the system.
In the illustration the lower-left cylinder is heated by burning fuel.
When hot gas is transferred to the cool cylinder, it is first driven through the regenerator, where a portion of the heat is deposited.

The compression stroke of the engine causes the fuel to ignite.
Cylinder heads are also designed to provide more horsepower for an engine.
The most popular engines used in motor vehicles are the 4 cylinder, 6 cylinder (V6), 8 cylinder (V8) and the 12 cylinder engines.

 ENGINES
If changing brands, the new engine should have the same horsepower and be designed for the same applications as the old one so that parts don't need modification.
Manufacturers say their engines have high output and torque and offer features such as full-pressure lubrication, cast-iron cylinder sleeves, dual air cleaner elements and forged steel crankshafts.
Deutz 1011F Series diesel engines have output ratings from 20 to 83 horsepower and are available in two versions: the FL1011F with an integrated cooling system and the FM1011F with a fan and externally mounted oil cooler.

 New and used engines
Engines are 2 cycle, twin cylinder, and will operate vertically or horizontally; engines are complete, with carburetor, muffler, recoil starter and exhaust header.
Although the initial cost of a Hirth engine may make it appear more expensive than competing engines, the extremely high TBO of 1,000 hours, the full year warranty, the superior reliability and the lower operating RPM actually make Hirth engines a far greater value than almost any of its competitors.

 Twin Cylinder engines lack power   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
To find out which cylinder is "dead" start it up and remove the spark plug wire from the cylinders one at a time.
The causes of a dead cylinder are the valve seat coming out, valve stuck open, low compression, or even a bad spark plug!.
A twin cylinder engine will run with no problem on one cylinder, just as long as the load is not greater than what the good cylinder can put out.

 BMW World - 6-Cylinder Engines
The straight-six engine does not require balance shafts and elaborate engine mounts to overcome vibrations inherent in other designs, like the V-6.
No unwanted symptoms have to be eliminated, since the straight-six engine is perfect from the ground up.
With valve drive systems currently becoming more complex, the advantage of having only one cylinder head and only one valve drive system is becoming increasingly important in cost and performance.

 Paxman History Pages - Paxman Diesel Engines Since 1934
The development of the larger engines progressed rapidly and culminated in the immediate pre-war years in the RX engines which were the forerunners of the YL range.
However the engine block of the VRB, incorporating the crankcase and both banks of cylinder blocks, was a complex single casting and unwieldy for machining on account of its size.
This was a 12 cylinder engine minus one bank of cylinders, the gap being closed by a plain entablature.

This engine was very efficient then and required only minor modifications to meet the current EPA emission standards.
The new OHC design GX100 3hp engine is also included in the GX series, along with the new mini 4-stroke at 1 and 1.5 hp.
These engines were not designed for the rigorous demands of all day commercial use like the GX, but rather are for the consumer who needs a quick starting, fuel efficient, quiet engine that will be used weekly, instead of daily.

 BMW World - 12-Cylinder Engines
BMW has made 5 and 6-liter engines for the 7 Series and 5-liter engines for the 8 Series model cars.
All 5-liter 12-cylinder engines are 2 valve per cylinder units, while the new 6-liter engine has 4 valves per cylinder.
According to BMW, its physics are ideal: 12 cylinders arranged in a 60° "vee" of two cylinder banks are perfectly balanced; combined with the relatively even power pulses of so many cylinders, this results in an extremely smooth propulsion unit.

The working gas is transferred from one end of the cylinder to the other by a device called a displacer (here illustrated in blue).
The displacer resembles a large piston, except that it has a smaller diameter than the cylinder, thus its motion does not change the volume of gas in the cylinder - it merely transfers the gas around within the cylinder.
The bulk of the gas is transferred around the displacer to the cool end of the cylinder.
