BEST crankshafts PART DEALS MINIMUM EFFORT!
Crankshafts in a vehicle play an important role and are powered by the pistons to help propel your vehicle. In turn, the crankshaft keeps the pistons moving up and down. Here we will explain more.
A crankshaft is different to a camshaft
All vehicle's with an engine will be using a crankshaft which is different to a camshaft in that it's powered by the pistons and its motion will keep these pistons moving up and down. The crankshaft consists of the crank web and the main bearing journal along with rod ends and prop flange. For many reasons, it is probably one of the most important parts in a vehicle because it makes the wheels turn and there are crank pins which connect the component to the connecting rods. The pins are placed off centre so the force of the pistons and the distance between the crankshaft and the crank pin will decide the stroke of the piston.
Crankshafts tend to be made with forged steel alloys
Crankshafts tend to be made with forged steel alloys since they offer more strength and are lighter than previous crankshafts that were made from steel. These quality crankshafts made from alloys are used widely in high-end sports cars and for motorsports vehicles since the crankshaft is the item that carries the strain that is transferred by the connecting rod and piston. The crankshaft also helps to power other crucial components, including the camshaft, alternator, oil pump and air conditioning compressor. While the crankshaft should give many years of service, they can break but this is usually down to another component failing. For example, in a diesel engine, a failed bearing will create more torque and lead to the crankshaft snapping. Other reasons for crankshaft failure will include insufficient lubrication, vibration issues and too much pressure in the cylinders. Also, steel crankshafts can wear out and lead to a failure. Should the crankshaft fail, you may also need to check and replace the crankshaft position sensor, particularly if your engine is stalling. This may be down to a wiring issue, but the crankshaft position sensor failing can also lead to the situation. It also needs to be appreciated that without a functioning crankshaft position sensor your engine will not run and you need to rectify the situation.
Problems with your crankshaft
If you believe there are problems with your crankshaft, then it might be a good idea to have a professional inspect it and diagnose what the issue might be and then carry out a repair. By doing so your vehicle will be repaired properly and be ready for travelling on the road ñ a botched repair will lead to a more serious issue. Also, using a quality replacement crankshaft will be very important.
Searching for crankshafts
If you are searching for crankshafts, then you need to source a quality replacement from a reputable supplier and ensure it meets the vehicle manufacturer's criteria and the MorePartz site can help.
