Automobiles are trackless, self-propelled vehicles for land transportation of people or goods, or for moving materials. There are three main types of automobiles. These are passenger cars, buses and lorries (trucks). The automobile consists of the following components: a) the engine; b) the framework; c) the mechanism that transmits the power from engine to the wheels; d) the body.




1. engine 2. clutch: 3. gearbox; 4. propeller shaft; 5. final drivegears; 6. disk brake;

7. front axle; 8. rear axle; 9. coil spring suspension; 10. shock absorber;

11. radiator; 12. steering; 13. chassis; 14. body

Passenger cars are, as a rule, propelled by an internal combustion engine. They are distinguished by the horsepower of the engine, the number of cylinders in the engine and the type of the body, the type of transmission, wheelbase, weight and overall length.

There are engines of various designs. They differ in the number of cylinders, their position, their operating cycle, valve mechanism, ignition and cooling system.

Most automobile engines have six or eight cylinders, although some four-, twelve-, and sixteen-cylinder engines are used.

An automobile, powered by a petrol engine, begins to operate when the driver turns a flywheel connected to the engine crankshaft. As the crankshaft revolves, a mixture of fuel and air is drawn from a carburetor into the engine cylinders. The ignition system provides the electric sparks that ignite this mixture. The resultant explosions of the mixture turn the crankshaft, and the engine starts moving. By regulating the flow of the fuel and air with a throttle, the driver controls the rotational speed of the crankshaft.

Cooling, electrical ignition and lubrication systems are of great importance for the good performance of a car. The lights, radio and heater add to the flexibility, comfort, and convenience of the car. The indicating devices keep the driver informed as to engine temperature, oil pressure, amount of fuel, and battery charging rate.

Brakes are of drum and disk types. The steering system consists of a manually operated steering wheel which is connected by a steering column to the steering gear from which linkages run to the front wheels. It is difficult to turn the steering wheel, and special hydraulic power mechanisms are used to lessen this effort. Suitable springings are used against shocks. These are leaf springs, coil springs, torsion bars and air suspensions.

2. Read the text.


All modern manual gearboxes have certain features in common. They gear down the engine revolutions to increase the torque output to the driving wheels.

In the past most gearboxes were of the sliding mesh type. More recently makers have manufactured constant mesh gearbox which are less noisy and easier to operate. Many manufacturers have now introduced synchromesh gearbox as well. They give a quicker and much noisy hear change.

In transmission the gearbox for heavy vehicles tended to be range-change designs with synchromesh equipment, but these have not acquired a monopoly. In fact, there is now a growing preference for splitter boxes because they are easier to drive. Also constant-mesh is still in favour because maintenance is reduced.

The preferences are varied. The Swedes stick in synchromesh. Volvo with range-change plus splitter in some cases, while Scandia has a 10-speed splitter for its mid-power models and a 10-speed range-change to take the higher torques. The Z.F. 12-speed synchromesh splitter is used by Seddan Atkinson and D.A.F. and the constant-mesh version is used by M.A.N., while Mercedes-Benz and D.A.F. use the Z.F. 9-speed synchromesh range-change. Bedford uses the Spicer 10-speed constant-mash splitter as does Leyland for the T 45.

- sliding mesh gearbox – коробка передач со скользящими шестернями

- constant mesh gearbox – коробка передач с шестернями постоянного зацепления

- synchromesh gearbox – коробка передач с синхронизаторами

- range-change – с изменяемым диапазоном (передаточных чисел_

- splitter – дополнительная коробка передач (делитель)

The engine is the power plant of a vehicle. Engine is a machine for converting any kind of energy into mechanical power. Engine that converts heat energy into mechanical power is called heat engine. Internal combustion engine are heat engines because the fuel burns directly inside the cylinders. Reciprocating engine is an engine where gases are formed and their pressure pushes the piston.

The military trucks are powered as a rule by reciprocating internal combustion engines. Reciprocating internal combustion engines may be classified as followes:

- according to the fuel they work on, as gasoline, diesel, gas and multifuel englines;

- according to the number of piston strokes in one complete working cycle, as two-stroke engines and four-stroke engines;

- according to the number of cylinder, as four-, six-, eight-, ten-, and twelve-cylinder engines;

- according to the arrangement of cylinders as in-line engines, V-engines and star or radial engines;

- according to the working fluid, as compression-ignition engines and spark ignition engine;

- according to mixing, as engines with outer mixing and with inner mixing;

- according to the method of cooling, as liquid-cooled and air-cooled engines.

6. Read one more text, compare the two texts.


1. The engine is the source of power that makes the car move. It is usually called an internal combustion engine because gasoline is burned within its cylinders or combustion chambers. Most automobile engines have six or eight cylinders.

2. The operating cycle of the four-stroke engine that takes place in the engine cylinder can be divided into four strokes. The upper limit of the piston movement is called the top dead centre. The lower limit of piston movement is called the bottom dead centre. A stroke is the piston movement from the top dead centre to the bottom dead centre, or from the bottom dead centre to the top dead centre. In other words, the piston completes a stroke each time it changes the direction of its motion.

3. Where the entire cycle of events in the cylinder requires four strokes (two crankshaft revolutions), the engine is called a four-stroke cycle engine. The four strokes are: intake, compression, power and exhaust.

4. Two-cycle engines have also been made, and in such engines the entire cycle of events is completed in two strokes or one revolution of the crankshaft.

5. On the intake stroke the intake valve is opened. The mixture of air and vaporized gasoline is delivered into the cylinder through the inlet valve.

On the compression stroke the inlet valve is closed so that the mixture can be compressed.

On the power stroke both valves (inlet and exhaust) are closed in order to rise pressure during the mixture combustion.

On the exhaust stroke the exhaust valve is opened to exhaust the residual gas.

Cycle of operations.

In a four-stroke cycle gasoline engine the cycle of operations consists of four strokes: suction, compression, power and exhaust.

The first cycle is called suction or induction stroke. During this stroke the piston moves from TDC to the BDC and the fuel-air mixture is sucked through the opened inlet valve

while the exhaust valve is closed. In the cylinder the fuel-air mixture is mixed with

the burnt gases forming the so-called working fluid. As the piston reaches the BDC the

inlet valve is closed.

The second stroke is called compression stroke. The inlet and exhaust valves are closed. The piston moves up compressing the working fluid. The working fluid compression ensures quicker combustion and formation of high gas pressure in the cylinder. The higher compression ratio the higher gas pressure to the piston during combustion and the engine operation is more efficient.

The third cycle is called ignition, expansion or power stroke. When the piston reaches the top of the stroke a spark runs across the spark plug igniting the compressed mixture.

The mixture burns quickly forming a great amount of heat. The gases from the explosion ere heated greatly, expand and push the piston down with considerable force. Moving down the piston revolved the crankshaft. The inlet and outlet valves are still closed. This is the only stroke during which the gas is doing useful work.

The fourth cycle is called exhaust stroke. In this stroke the intaka valve is closed, the outlet valve is opened. The piston moves from the BDC to the TDC pushing out the burnt gases through the exhaust valve. When the piston ranches the top dead centre exhaust valve closes and the cycle of operation is completed.
