The engine block refers to the central and main component of the engine assembly. It contains the engine cylinders that work alongside the pistons. The engine block is also connected to a series of connecting rods, gaskets, and pumps, as well as the oil pan and crankcase down below it.

Engine block maintenance
Oil leaks are the most common sign of a failing engine block as the engine block is designed to direct the engine oil where it needs to go. The engine block is quite durable, however when issues arise, it usually means that the entire engine will need replacement.
