Parts of Your Volkswagen Engine
Most Volkswagen vehicles have between four- and eight-cylinder engines under the hood. There are many components that make up your vehicle's engine. The engine houses the crankshaft, which converts the motion of the pistons. The pistons pressurize the engine's fuel and oxygen, while spark plugs combust the mix and exhaust valves regulate fume levels. The oil pan holds motor oil. Your engine uses motor oil to keep it cool and lubricate its components.

Just like other parts of your Volkswagen car, wagon, or SUV, you may come across common problems with your engine. Below are some of the most common engine problems that your vehicle may be experiencing:
