QUICK GLOSSARY FOR CARS  

A-Pillar is the pillar on either side of the front windshield.

ABS
is anti-lock brakes (anti-lock braking system) that improves control on dry, wet or slick surfaces by helping prevent wheel lockup, automatically "pumping" the brakes. ABS has a higher resistance to wear and fade.

C-pillar is the pillar between the rear side windows and the rear windshield that supports the roof.

Crankase are the castings that contain the crankshaft, gearbox and primary drive.

Crankshaft
is the piston and crankshaft assemblies, also known as the engine's reciprocating assembly. The piston and rod reciprocate, or move up and down, in the cylinder, while the crankshaft changes the piston's linear or straight-line motion into usable rotary or spinning motion; piston move up and down together with 360 degree crankshaft, alternating with a 180 degree crankshaft .

Disc brakes are round discs that are squeezed by brake calipers. Disc brakes are exposed to air, and therefore maintain cooling better, which decreases brake fade and improves stopping reliability.

Displacement is the size of the engine.

DOHC (dual overhead cams) having two camshafts, which are located above the cylinder head.

Electronic Fuel Injection is a fuel system that relies on electronics to gather, blend and distribute a fuel mixture to each cylinder.

Horsepower
is a measure of the rate at which work can be done -- derived from the ability of the average horse to lift 100 pounds over 330 feet in 1 minute, that is, 1 horsepower. Horsepower is the measure of continuous moving power of the vehicle and its top-end speed.

Overdrive is a transmission gear that reduces the power output needed to maintain driving speed, which gives the engine a break and improves fuel economy.

Torque
is a measure of the power that gets a vehicle going from a standstill. Higher torque means you are thrown back in your seat when the driver hits the gas.

Wheelbase is the distance between the front wheels and the rear wheels. Cars with a very short wheelbase may feel harder to handle, while a longer wheelbase usually adds stability.
