A V6 internal combustion engine from a Mercedes car
An engine or motor is a machine designed to convert one form of energy into mechanical energy.12 Heat engines, including internal combustion engines and external combustion engines (such as steam engines), burn a fuel to create heat, which then creates a force. Electric motors convert electrical energy into mechanical motion; pneumatic motors use compressed air and others?such as clockwork motors in wind-up toys?use elastic energy. In biological systems, molecular motors, like myosins in muscles, use chemical energy to create forces and eventually motion.
Which customers appear in car services?
As you know, most of the people going to the car service decides to take this step due to the sudden emergency situation and still persisting problems with the car. Of course, there are also compulsory inspection of cars, but apart from a cursory check the performance of our car hardly anyone decides on a thorough diagnosis of the car. This is primarily associated with costs that have to be incurred in connection with the sometimes very costly repairs and replacements of car parts. Often the repair turns out to be also unprofitable, because it exceeds the value of the car. In such cases, the best solution would be to sell the car.
