QUICK GLOSSARY

A-Pillar is the pillar on either side of the front windshield.

C-pillar
is the pillar between the rear side windows and the rear windshield that supports the roof.

Crankase are the castings that contain the crankshaft, gearbox and primary drive.

Crankshaft
is the piston and crankshaft assemblies, also known as the engine's reciprocating assembly. The piston and rod reciprocate, or move up and down, in the cylinder, while the crankshaft changes the piston's linear or straight-line motion into usable rotary or spinning motion; piston move up and down together with 360 degree crankshaft, alternating with a 180 degree crankshaft .

Detergent
Fuel additive that is designed to keep fuel injectors clean, thereby improving engine performance and fuel economy. See 'TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline.'

Disc brakes are round discs that are squeezed by brake calipers. Disc brakes are exposed to air, and therefore maintain cooling better, which decreases brake fade and improves stopping reliability.

Displacement is the size of the engine.

DOHC (dual overhead cams) having two camshafts, which are located above the cylinder head.

Electronic Fuel Injection is a fuel system that relies on electronics to gather, blend and distribute a fuel mixture to each cylinder.

High-octane
Good anti-knock properties of gasoline.

High-Performance Engine
An engine that compresses gas and air into a smaller volume before igniting the mixture. Offers more horsepower for a smaller weight engine. Requires higher octane or it will knock.

Horsepower
is a measure of the rate at which work can be done -- derived from the ability of the average horse to lift 100 pounds over 330 feet in 1 minute, that is, 1 horsepower. Horsepower is the measure of continuous moving power of the vehicle and its top-end speed.

Hydrocarbon
An organic chemical containing only carbon and hydrogen.

Knocking
When an gas-air mixture ignites by compression rather than the spark of the spark plug a knocking noise is heard in the engine, especially during acceleration -- bad for the engine. Also caused pinging.

Mid-Grade
Usually gas with an octane number of 89. Posted with bright yellow stickers at the pump.

MPG

Miles per gallon. The gas mileage or a car -- how far the car goes on a gallon of gas.

Octane Number
A number that is used to measure the antiknock properties of gasoline. Higher numbers are less likely to cause knocking. Octane is often short for Octane Number, but is literally and 8-carbon alkane. See
FTC page.

Overdrive is a transmission gear that reduces the power output needed to maintain driving speed, which gives the engine a break and improves fuel economy.

Preumium
The highest octane gas for everyday automobile driving -- usually 92 or 93. Posted with bright yellow stickers at the pump.

Regular
Lower-octane rated gasoline is rated 87-octane. Posted with bright yellow stickers at the pump. It handles the least amount of compression before igniting. Technically it is 87% octane and 13% heptane.

Tetraethyl lead (TEL)
Additive discovered during WWI that improves the octane rating of gas, but clogs the catallytic converter and is bad for the environment. TEL was very harmful and even fatal to some workers in gas plants, who were accidentally poisoned during processing.

TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline
Helps keep engines cleaner than gasoline containing the "Lowest Additive Concentration" set by the EPA. Clean engines help provide optimal fuel economy and performance and reduced emissions. Use of TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline helps reduce deposit-related concerns that could clog fuel injectors, which could cause engine hesitation and stalls. Developed by automotive companies: BMW, General Motors, Honda and Toyota.

Torque
is a measure of the power that gets a vehicle going from a standstill. Higher torque means you are thrown back in your seat when the driver hits the gas.

Vapor Lock
Interruption of flow of fuel in an internal combustion engine caused by gas bubbles in the intake.

Wheelbase is the distance between the front wheels and the rear wheels. Cars with a very short wheelbase may feel harder to handle, while a longer wheelbase usually adds stability.
