Engine cylinders are round, hollow metal pieces that contain the engine’s pistons. When your engine is running, the pistons will move up and down to allow the engine to operate. The engine cylinder is also connected to the fuel injector, spark plugs, and intake valves, which each serve their own function in the running of the engine.
Signs of a bad engine cylinder
- Engine overheats
- Engine misfires
