Modern vehicles rely on a range of sensors and feedback systems to regulate a variety of processes within the engine.
Sensors are also involved in information provision such as registering on the fuel gauge the fuel levels in the tank.
Other modern car sensor systems include parking sensors that can alert you to the proximity of surrounding objects.
The distributor cap is an integral part of a car’s ignition system. It works in conjunction with the rotor arm contained within to transfer electrical charge from the ignition coil to the spark plugs. This in turn creates the spark needed to ignite the fuel mixture and power the car.
