Know your car - what is what????

AWD - All Wheel Drive:
An AWD system incorporates a specially designed drive train with a center differential that delivers power to all the four wheels of an automobile. A center differential means that each tyre can rotate at a different speeds.

Air Cooled Engine:
An air-cooled engine is cooled by the passage of air, generally forced around and over the cylinders.

Air Filter:
An air filter is installed to prevent the dust and dirt particles in the air from entering the engine's cylinders. It filters out the grime and sends clean air into the cylinder for the combustion process to take place.

Aluminum Cylinder Block:
It is an engine block cast of aluminum usually with cast iron sleeves installed as cylinder bored. Aluminum helps reduce the weight of the engine and in return makes the car lighter improving its performance.
