Identifying Basic Engine Components
Lets take a look at Basic Engine Components.
EXAMPLE: Engine System Components of a 1994 Honda Civic.
Typical Basic Engine Components
Here are the Basic Engine Components you'll need to identify for your car.
* PLEASE NOTE This discussion is limited to this particular
car. Your car might be different. Verify the
exact wiring for your application requirements. Wiring Table

The Basic Engine Components Identified in this photo include:
The air intake tube that leads to the air cleaner.
The throttle body where air enters the engine of the car.
The accelerator which is controlled by the gas pedal and controls the speed of the engine.
The gas line that supplies fuel from the gas tank to the engine.
The fuel injection assembly which distributes the fuel and air mixture into the engine cylinders.
The valve cover over the top of the cylinders of the engine.
The spark plugs and set of wires that provide ignition for the cylinders.
The distributor cap containing the rotor which sends electrical power to each spark plug.
The oil inlet cap where oil is added to keep the engine lubricated.
I Hope this Description of Basic Engine Components Helps You!

All home electrical wiring projects should be performed correctly by trained and qualified individuals who understand the principles of electrical circuit wiring and the basic fundamentals of home construction. Detailed information is provided throughout areas of this website about the complexity of specific projects to help assist with you to understand the scope of work involved.
The following categories will provide more specific information for each project - below is an Example:
Electrical Project Skill Level:
Intermediate to Advanced - Best performed by a Licensed Electrical Contractor.
Electrical Tools Required:
Basic Electricians Pouch Hand Tools and a Voltage Tester.
Depends on the personal level experience, ability to work with tools, install electrical circuit wiring, and the available access to the project area. Electrical Safety:
Identify the electrical circuits found in the project area, turn them OFF and Tag them with a Note before working with the electrical wiring.
Home Electrical Parts and Materials:
Electrical parts and materials for home wiring projects should be approved for the specific project and compliant with local and national electrical codes.
Electrical Codes and Inspections:
Installing additional home electrical wiring should be done according to local and national electrical codes with a permit and be inspected.
