How an Engine Works

Hey yall, I was browsing the webs this morning before work and came across this super informative animation of how the engine functions, may be a little elementary for some veterans here but many of those who aren't versed in engines could find it interesting as to how it all goes together.

The fact that this is a gif totally makes it awesome.

I knew all that is included in the gif already but that is probably one of the best ones I have seen for a complete explanation of the inner workings and the inclusion of each different aspect, intake, exhaust, cooling, spark, fuel and air plus the quick hybrid is very nice. I am saving this for future conversations. Much easier to explain to someone with a solid reference such as this.

Good find and thanks for sharing.

When I explain the internal combustion engine, I use the trusty

Suck, squeeze, bang, and blow...

Seems to grab attention better than intake, compression, power, exhaust!!
