Common Causes For Car Engine Failure
Car engines can fail for a number of reasons, but there are some common causes. Common causes include problems with the car's cooling system, an insufficient supply of air to the engine, failures in the fuel system, and worn pistons.
Problems With The Car's Cooling System
Coolant is responsible for removing heat from your engine as it circulates through the engine block. Coolant is controlled by a series of valves which open to allow coolant through when water is boiling out onto the radiator fins at high temperature, then close again to stop this happening once the temperature has dropped again. If you have a leak or other problem with your cooling system that prevents sufficient coolant from circulating, you risk overheating the engine. This can cause serious damage which, depending on how long it is before you notice a problem and get it fixed, may result in a total engine failure.
Insufficient Supply Of Air
Car engines rely on air to burn the fuel they're supplied with, and deliver power to the drivetrain. In an engine that isn't getting enough air, the fuel will still be burnt but won't produce as much power as it should do. A lack of sufficient oxygen intake can also lead to carbon deposits being deposited in your pistons and cylinder head. Carbon deposits can lead to increased wear on these parts which is insufficient air supply is a common cause of engine failure.
Failed Fuel Intake
As well as supplying air to the car's engine, the fuel system also supplies fuel to the engine once it's been mixed with air. If you have a problem with your fuel intake system that restricts or reduces flow, you run the risk of not only causing insufficient air supply which (as described above) can lead to serious damage, but also restricted power output and other problems caused by insufficiently-combusted fuel.
The pistons in your vehicle's cylinders are responsible for compressing the fuel-air mixture before ignition occurs. After being compressed, the fuel-air mixture is ignited, which causes it to rapidly expand. The rapid expansion of the combustion gases drives your engine's crank shaft so that it can power your drivetrain. If you have a problem with any part of this process then you are likely to end up with an engine failure. Over time, the rings which seal the piston in its cylinder can wear down or break, allowing combustion gases to escape past them and into other parts of the engine where they shouldn't be. Another common cause of failure is worn or damaged pistons themselves - usually because excessive heat has caused them to warp or distort.
