automobiles are a culmination of many engineering disciplines, the earliest models were almost fully mechanical beasts with hand crank starters and very simple magneto coil spark systems(unless rudolph diesels engine was employed in which all is mechanical) and mechanical fuel pump & injection. Modern automobiles use a plethora of electrical and mechanical devices including pneumatic systems, and highly advanced computer controls. Today there are so many systems that are involved with everything from comfort control to traction control, for a good overview you should find as much info as you can about old vehicles, including buying some very old books on amazon.com's used books. try to find books that were copyrighted before 1920. that should be a good start.
Generally the heart of an automobile is an internal combustion engine.
-look up
"inside an internal combustion engine"
on youtube.com and you will find amazing videos that some awesome people captured of the inside of a motor while it was running!!
-for every topic on automobiles there is a fruitful google search so get into it! and if you have specific questions about automobile topics please feel free to send me a message or email, i am a mechanic and enthusiast!!

hello could you also suggest some good sources for self cooling diesel engines?
geococeo
geococeo • Aug 13, 2008
im not sure what you mean by self cooling
but i have heard stories of air cooled diesels but thats not exactly self cooling
the closest i can imagine is a diesel engine run on the six stroke principle which i believe only exists in theory
all six strokes to date are gasoline motors
correct me if i am wrong anyone??
