Have you ever broken anything in your car but didn't know what the component was called, leaving you unable to replace it? Well, if it has, we might be able to assist you. It is every car owner/driver's obligation to have a basic understanding and knowledge of their cars.

However, there is no shame in not knowing everything there is to know about cars. An average car owner does not know all about cars. Still, as a basic user of cars, or even an enthusiast, there are a few things you must know. No excuses!

Also, along with knowing the basic car parts, you must know the vitality of motor insurance in India. According to Indian law, every four-wheeler owner in the nation must obtain third-party liability insurance before driving on the road. The insurance will protect you against third-party losses and liabilities. It is a legal necessity. However, it is better to compare car insurance plans and select a coverage that meets your needs.

Furthermore, if the four-wheeler is involved in an accident and suffers damage, the insurance provider will cover your expenses. If your car is damaged due to natural disasters, you will be reimbursed for the costs of restoring it. You may also select from a large range of add-on covers or riders to supplement the car insurance policy's coverage.

At Tata AIG, you can find the best insurance plans for your cars and even have the option to tailor them according to your unique needs. Also, the procedure of purchasing four-wheeler insurance and filing insurance claims is easy and swift. So, why wait? Obtain a car insurance policy now to have total peace of mind. You'll be certain that you'll have no financial or legal troubles in the event of a loss to third-party property or your own four-wheeler. Now coming to the central theme of the blog post regarding the basic car parts you must know. Continue reading to learn more.

Basic Automotive Knowledge

Listed below is some basic car knowledge that you must have:

  • Battery

The battery in your car is an important component. Without it, your vehicle would not start since it supplies the electricity required to power and start the engine. Batteries may be recharged and are linked to automotive equipment such as lights and radios. When your engine is turned off, turn off your radio and lights; otherwise, they will deplete your battery if left on for too long. A battery is normally found beneath the hood of a car, and it's best to inspect it every six months to a year to determine whether the terminals need cleaning.

  • Brakes

Another important component to maintain is the brakes since your car will not be able to stop without them. Most contemporary vehicles feature a hydraulic braking system in which the force applied to the brake pedal aids in applying brake power. If you hear a squeaky noise when you press the brake pedal, it's time to replace your brake discs and pads. Due to the high temperatures, the padding on the pads may have begun to wear away and/or the discs may have begun to come apart. It is always preferable to be safe than sorry!

  • Radiator

Well, the radiator prevents overheating by cooling the engine. It is placed near the car's engine and will require sufficient coolant in order to avoid overheating. The coolant will circulate throughout the car, collecting heat and transporting it away from the car engine to the radiator. Then, the hot air will pass through the radiator's fins, cooling and dispersing it. If your four-wheeler overheats, it's most likely due to a faulty radiator. It is one of the main parts of a car.

  • Pistons

When it comes to dealing with fuel explosions in the combustion chamber, pistons help deliver power to the tyres, allowing the four-wheeler to drive. Cars feature four to six pistons that move up and down in the shape of cylinders. The more revolutions your four-wheeler has, the faster your pistons move. However, it's vital to realise that high speeds can harm pistons, leading them to wear out faster and get unclean. It is one of the main parts of a car, particularly the engine.

  • Muffler

The muffler is part of your four-wheeler's exhaust system and helps to decrease engine noise and filter the exhaust air with the help of catalytic converters. It can be found between the engine and the exhaust. If you ever notice any malfunction in the exhaust, get your bike car checked because delayed actions can lead to expensive repairs.

  • Catalytic Converter

Well, a catalytic converter filters out dangerous pollutants, allowing your four-wheeler to emit just carbon dioxide and water, making it more ecologically friendly. Catalytic converters are made to last and seldom need to be replaced. However, depending on the age of the vehicle, it might get damaged or clogged at times. If you suspect your catalytic converter has a problem and it has triggered a light on your dashboard, it's always best to replace it, but remember to instal it as soon as you have the replacement.

  • Air Filters

A four-wheeler has two types of air filters: one to clean the air that enters the car, providing a continual flow of clean air, and another to clean/filter the air in the car's engine, which requires air for combustion. It is critical to repair defective filters and clean them if they are unclean since debris and dirt can enter the four-wheeler chamber (for cabin air filters) or, worse, obstruct airflow.

  • Shock Absorbers

When driving on uneven ground, such as rural roads, shock absorbers are required to preserve your wheels' hold on the road. They make your ride smoother by absorbing the vibrations created by driving.

Shock absorbers or shockers are positioned beneath your car and must be checked while repairing your vehicle because if they do not absorb bumps adequately, your four-wheeler may collide with the ground, causing damage.

  • Alternator

Well, the alternator supplies power to the vehicle's electrical system, charging the battery while the vehicle is in motion and converting mechanical energy into electrical energy. This is why, as previously said, leaving your lights or radio on when your car isn't running will destroy the battery. If you're having problems with your car battery, be sure whether it's not the alternator or both.

The Bottom Line

We hope this blog post has helped you learn some car parts’ names and understand how these work. Understanding these car parts and their functions is the first step toward feeling in charge of your four-wheeler, speaking confidently to a car mechanic, and making smarter maintenance decisions. Also, do not forget to buy a comprehensive Tata AIG four-wheeler insurance policy after purchasing an EV car since it will help keep your car financially and legally protected in times of need.
