The Internal Combustion Engine : 

The Internal Combustion Engine In 1876 Nicholas Otto invented the four stroke internal combustion engine. He called it the Otto Cycle Engine.

How Does It Work : 

How Does It Work A gas-fuel mixture is ignited by a spark plug inside the chamber. The explosion pushes the piston which turns the crank shaft.

The Ignition System : 

The Ignition System The first ignition system was invented in 1911 by GM engineers Clyde Coleman and Charles Kettering.

How Does It Work : 

How Does It Work The battery provides the initial power source for ignition. Once the car is started the alternator takes over.

Steering And Suspension Systems : 

Steering And Suspension Systems

Steering/Suspension : 

Steering/Suspension Troubleshooting steering and suspension on your car can be difficult. Click the link above for tips.

Transmission : 

Transmission Automatic transmissions are more common in cars. But, some people still appreciate manual transmissions.

Cooling/Exhaust Systems : 

Cooling/Exhaust Systems Cooling and Exhaust Systems in vehicles basically work with a pump and a series of intake and outtake lines.

Cooling, Heating Systems : 

Cooling, Heating Systems Coolant is pumped through the engine through a series of hoses. This keeps the engine from overheating.

Exhaust Systems : 

Exhaust Systems Hazardous fumes are pushed out of the piston chamber by the piston and expelled out the tailpipe through a series of pipes and chambers.

Computers In Transportation : 

Computers In Transportation Computers exist in most modern cars. In the form of GPS Systems and diagnostic controls.

Diagnostics : 

Diagnostics Sensors send messages to the central computer. The computer relays the message to the driver through a display panel.

Modes Of Transportation : 

Modes Of Transportation The Department Of Transportation controls every mode of transportation from ground, water, sea and air travel.

Mass Transit Systems : 

Mass Transit Systems Mass Transit Systems are public forms of transportation that carry large groups of people at a time.

Shipping : 

Shipping UPS provides shipping service all across the country. There are many other shipping companies that carry goods to factoriess and businesses that drive our economy.

Transportation Impacts : 

Transportation Impacts Transportation technology has severe positive and negative impacts. Our economy depends on transportation yet it creates a lot of pollution.
