2.2. General information

The engine with four cylinders, established cross-section in a forward part of the car. Coupling and a transmission are located on the left side of the engine.

The block of cylinders is made of an aluminum alloy. The cranked shaft leans on 5 main bearings. Persistent half rings are established on the third radical bearing.

In the bottom heads of a rod loose leaves are established. Pistons fasten to rods piston fingers. Pistons from an aluminum alloy also have three piston rings, two sealing and one maslosjemny.

The camshaft located in the top part of a head of the block of cylinders, puts in action a gear belt of a drive and operates valves through the hydraulic pushers located under cams of a camshaft.

Greasing of the engine is made under the pressure created by the oil pump. Oil is sucked in via the mesh filter located in a maslopriyemnik and then arrives via the external established filter to canals of the block of the cylinder. From there oil arrives to коленчато му to a shaft and a camshaft. Bearings of the bottom head of a rod are supplied with oil through internal drilling in a cranked shaft. To camshaft bearings oil also moves under pressure. Cams distribute a telny shaft and the valve are oiled sprayed, also as well as all other mobile details of the engine.
