Driving your car at around 4,000 RPM will basically opens and closes your engine valves at 2,000 times per minute, or approximately 33 times per second. This speed moves your pistons very quickly, which could affect the air fuel mixture that rushes into the engine cylinder. Your valves must be opened at the right time to control the flow of air fuel mixture intake. To address this need, your car has been equipped with an engine component known as the camshaft.
The camshaft installed on your car helps in facilitating the closing and opening of the engine valves in your piston engine. This car component is driven by a crankshaft through chains, or gears that run at half the speed of its own. There are three different camshaft arrangements on engines. These are the double overhead cam, the single overhead cam, and the pushrod. Double overhead cams are used on engines that have four or more valves per cylinder. On the other hand, single overhead cams are used on 6-cylinder engines. Finally, pushrods are found in overhead cam engines.
