The fuel is burnt to produce heat energy, which is then converted into movement. With internal combustion the fuel is burnt inside; if it is burnt outside, as with a steam engine, it is called external combustion. Most car engines work by a reciprocating action of the pistons (back and forwards in a straight line), but just a few are rotary, such as a gas turbine or Wankel engine. Learning about engines and other technology is as much about learning new words as it is about understanding complicated techniques.

It involves melting a mixture of lead and tin to act as the bond. A common example of a soldered joint is the electrical connection between the stator and diode pack in an alternator. 5 shows this process using the most common heat source, which is an electric soldering iron. 5 Soldering a diode pack in an alternator 30 Motor Vehicle Engineering The process of soldering is as follows: 1. Prepare the surfaces to be joined by cleaning and using emery cloth or wire wool as appropriate. 2. Add a flux to prevent the surfaces becoming dirty with oxide when heated, or use a solder with a flux core.
