    What does DOHC stand for?

    • A.

      Double over head cam

    • B.

      Double over head crank

    • C.

      Double over head cylinder

    • D.

    • D.

      Diaphragm spring clutch

    Correct Answer
    D. Diaphragm spring clutch
    Explanation
    A diaphragm spring clutch is a type of clutch that uses a diaphragm spring to engage and disengage the clutch mechanism. The diaphragm spring is a flat, circular spring that applies pressure to the clutch plate, allowing it to engage with the flywheel and transmit power from the engine to the transmission. This type of clutch is commonly used in vehicles as it provides a smooth and efficient operation, allowing for easy shifting of gears.

      Safety shaft

    • D.

      Dual spring

    Correct Answer
    B. Input shaft
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "input shaft". The input shaft is a component of a gearbox that transfers torque from the engine to the transmission. It connects to the clutch and receives power from the engine, allowing it to rotate and transmit power to the gears within the gearbox. This component is essential for the proper functioning of the gearbox and the overall operation of the vehicle.

    Correct Answer
    C. 1000
    Explanation
    The approximate brake horsepower (bhp) of the Bugatti Veyron is 1000. Brake horsepower is a unit of measurement used to determine the power output of an engine. In the case of the Bugatti Veyron, its engine produces approximately 1000 bhp, making it an incredibly powerful and high-performance vehicle.

    Name the three braking components.

    • A.

      Flywheel,disc,shoe

    • B.

      Caliper,disc,shoe

    • C.

      Disc,pad,head gasket

    • D.

      Pad,shoe,valve spring

    Correct Answer
    B. Caliper,disc,shoe
    Explanation
    The correct answer is caliper, disc, shoe. The caliper is responsible for applying pressure to the disc, which in turn slows down the rotation of the wheel. The shoe is a curved piece of material that presses against the inside of the drum to create friction and slow down the vehicle. These three components work together to effectively stop the vehicle when the brakes are applied.

      Tiff needell

    • D.

      Mark webber

    Correct Answer
    D. Mark webber
    Explanation
    Mark Webber is the correct answer because he is a former Formula 1 driver. Jenson Button is also a former Formula 1 driver, but the question asks for the "real" Formula 1 driver, implying that only one of the options is a genuine Formula 1 driver. Juan Veron and Tiff Needell are not Formula 1 drivers, so they are not the correct answer.

    Which component links the gearbox to the final drive on a rear-wheel-drive vehicle?

    • A.

      Drive shaft

    • B.

      Pinion shaft

    • C.

      Prot shaft

    • D.

      Prop shaft

    Correct Answer
    D. Prop shaft
    Explanation
    The prop shaft, also known as the propeller shaft or drive shaft, is the component that connects the gearbox to the final drive on a rear-wheel-drive vehicle. It transmits the rotational power from the gearbox to the differential, which then distributes the power to the rear wheels. The prop shaft is a crucial part of the drivetrain system, allowing the engine's power to be transferred to the wheels efficiently and smoothly.

    Which component opens and closes to release exhaust gasses from the cylinder?

    • A.

      Cam shaft

    • B.

      Piston

    • C.

      Valve

    • D.

      Crank

    Correct Answer
    C. Valve
    Explanation
    The valve is the component that opens and closes to release exhaust gases from the cylinder. It acts as a gate, allowing the gases to exit the cylinder during the exhaust stroke of the engine. The valve is operated by the camshaft, which controls its timing and duration of opening and closing. This process is essential for the proper functioning of the engine, as it allows for the removal of spent gases and the intake of fresh air-fuel mixture for combustion.

    C. Leaf spring , coil spring
    Explanation
    The correct answer is leaf spring, coil spring. Leaf springs are made up of multiple layers of curved metal strips, providing flexibility and support for heavy loads. Coil springs, on the other hand, are helical-shaped springs that compress and expand to absorb shocks and maintain stability. Both types of springs are commonly used in suspension systems to provide a smooth ride and improve the handling of vehicles.

    What is the minimum tread depth allowed in the UK?

    • A.

      1.6mm

    • B.

      16mm

    • C.

      1mm

    • D.

      10.6mm

    Correct Answer
    A. 1.6mm
    Explanation
    The minimum tread depth allowed in the UK is 1.6mm. This measurement refers to the depth of the grooves on a tire's surface. Adequate tread depth is essential for maintaining traction and grip on the road, especially in wet or slippery conditions. Tires with tread depth below the legal limit can compromise safety and increase the risk of accidents. Regularly checking and maintaining proper tread depth is important for ensuring the overall performance and safety of vehicle tires.

    What gets into brake fluid and causes the pedal to be spongy?

    • A.

      Air

    • B.

      Water

    • C.

      Rubber

    • D.

      Dirt

    Correct Answer
    A. Air
    Explanation
    Air can get into brake fluid and cause the pedal to be spongy. When air enters the brake system, it creates air bubbles in the brake fluid. These air bubbles can compress, causing the brake pedal to feel soft or spongy when pressed. This can lead to a decrease in braking performance and potentially compromise the safety of the vehicle. It is important to regularly check and maintain the brake fluid to prevent air from entering the system.

    Which component attaches the piston to the crankshaft?

    • A.

      Cam shaft

    • B.

      Valve rod

    • C.

      Attaching spring

    • D.

      Con rod

    Correct Answer
    D. Con rod
    Explanation
    The con rod, also known as the connecting rod, is the component that attaches the piston to the crankshaft in an engine. It connects the piston to the crankshaft journal, allowing the reciprocating motion of the piston to be converted into rotary motion by the crankshaft. The con rod plays a critical role in transferring the force generated by the combustion process to the crankshaft, enabling the engine to produce power.

    What is the main purpose of a radiator in a car?

    • A.

      Heat up engine

    • B.

      Speed up engine

    • C.

      Increase engine power

    • D.

      Cool down engine

    Correct Answer
    D. Cool down engine
    Explanation
    The main purpose of a radiator in a car is to cool down the engine. As the engine runs, it generates a lot of heat, and the radiator helps to dissipate this heat by circulating coolant through the engine. The coolant absorbs the heat from the engine and then flows through the radiator, where it is cooled down by the airflow passing through the radiator fins. This process helps to prevent the engine from overheating and ensures that it operates at an optimal temperature.
