Types of Car Powertrain
The front wheel drive and the rear wheel drive are the two types of setups present in a powertrain components. Along with bearing a hub, the drive shafts move to the front wheels and a horizontally opposed engine is born by the front wheel drive.
If it is talked about the rear wheel drive setup of powertrain components, the transmission is placed behind the engine and the front of the car is faced by the engine.
Function of Car Powertrain
The main function of the powertrain components in the car is to provide power to the car. The Engine makes the power and then with the help of transmission transfers it to the driveshaft. The axles and finally the wheels are turned in the driveshaft in a wheel drive car.
Features of Car Powertrains
Powertrain components warranty includes the sensors but these sensors do not provide direct power to the vehicle. They just provide input and output to and from the PCM. The computer information is sent by some of the sensors to the output sensors. All of these work all-together to give smooth, efficient, and clean run by the car.
Summary: So by the above article it can be concluded that the transmission, engine, driveshaft are the Powertrain Components in the powertrain of the car. ECM (Electric Control Module) has a function of powertrain management and it may be also called as the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) depending on the car. The inputs are generated in the PCM and ECM through the sensors and the output is also sent through other sensors.
The powertrain components used in a car are engine, transmission, driveshaft, gear box and so on. The key component, engine consists of combustion cha...
