Knowing about the parts inside your Lexus vehicle is extremely helpful, especially when emergency strikes. When it comes to Lexus parts, our team at Lexus of Orange Park ensures you only get the best, and we want to make sure you know as much as possible.

Today, we want to discuss some parts that often go unnoticed: your engine cylinders.

Types of Engine Cylinders

Have you ever seen car commercials discuss different types of engines like four-cylinder, six-cylinder, or V6 units? If you have, you may be wondering what these numbers refer to and how they affect performance.

Truth be told, engine cylinders aren’t really a part of the engine; instead, they house pistons that compress energy. When these pistons move up and down, fuel is burned, creating the energy your vehicle needs to accelerate.

The more cylinders a vehicle has, the more energy is created, which increases overall power output. Most vehicles have either a four-, six-, or eight-cylinder engine. Inline engines have cylinders that are arranged in a straight line, while V engines have cylinders that are arranged into two rows.
