The gasoline combustion engine is a pretty incredible invention. The engine requires a small amount of high-energy fuel… think gasoline…. in a small, enclosed space. When this fuel is sealed in this space (combustion chamber) and ignited, it creates an incredible amount of energy that is released in the form of expanding gas or exhaust. The purpose of a gasoline motor or combustion engine is to convert gasoline combustion energy into motion, this process of "explosion" to "energy" happens hundreds of times per minute.

We have all experienced when there is an engine related issue. It could come as a misfire, rough running, lack of power, or multitude of other concerns that can arise when something is affecting the way your vehicles engine is running. Because we are dealing with explosions contained in a cylinder, it is VERY important to get these issues resolved quickly to prevent possible catastrophic engine damage.
