The engine is the powerplant for your vehicle and has many moving parts in and on it.
While accessories such as the alternator and power steering pump are technically not part of the engine, they are on the engine and sometimes considered part of “engine repair.”
Other systems that work in conjunction with the engine include the ignition system, fuel delivery system, computer system, and cooling system. Diesel and gas-powered vehicles have the same systems, though they might work differently.

A vehicle’s computer system runs the engine via various sensors and senders.
Some of the sensors tell the computer what the driver is asking for, such as more speed. Others feed information back to the computer so that the computer can make adjustments to obtain the best fuel economy.
The sensors and senders also tell the computer when something is not working correctly. The computer then stores a code and turns the check engine light on.

While the engine is a vital part of a running vehicle, it doesn’t do good if the spark and fuel do not exist.
For such things to work, the injectors and spark plugs must fire at the right time. If either the ignition system or fuel system malfunctions, the vehicle will not run properly or may not run at all.
