Auto Part Definitions

If you are buying a used automobile or are looking to purchase spare car parts, it is imperative to be familiar with some popular auto industry terms. Be smart and do some research before heading out to a dealership or salvage yard to do your shopping.

  • Transmission - A system in a car which sends power from the engine to the wheels and other parts of the automobile. Checking the transmission is vital when buying a used car or truck.
  • Suspension - The part of a truck or car which supports the vehicle body.
  • Rim - The outer edge of a wheel. Used rims can be found in a salvage yard. They can also be purchased new.
  • Radiator - A part of a car important to performance which is under the hood and helps to cool the engine.
  • Aftermarket - An industry which sells accessories which can be added to a car after it is purchased. Popular accessories can include high performance parts, custom seats, high tech mirrors and spoilers.
  • Cold Air Intake - A set of parts which helps engine combustion.
  • Shocks - Mechanical parts that reduce vehicle vibration when hitting a bump. Shocks need to be replaced periodically.
  • Brakes - Imperative part of a car which makes the vehicle stop or slow down. When your break light comes on to indicate something is wrong with your vehicle's breaks it should be taken seriously.
  • Exhaust Gas - Fumes that escape from a car. These fumes cause pollution to the environment, but improvements have been made to reduce the amount of harmful fumes that come out of cars.

    Every car breaks down and needs replacement parts at some point during its lifetime. When this happens, you have a few options. You can head to the dealerships where you bought your vehicle, you could seek out a local junk yard to find the desired part, or you could utilize online resources such as auctions. At the retail level, many stores sell new auto car parts for a variety of makes and models, from radiators and brakes to exhausts and transmissions. If you want new, this is probably your best option. If you’re a car dealer and want to buy lots of new parts at once, seek out a wholesaler to get a bulk discount on products like intake valves, body parts, and suspensions. If you’re not interested in having a brand new part, you may decide to buy used. Many auto car parts providers sell used accessories at a bargain, such as rims, mirrors, and hoods. The aftermarket parts business is a big one, offering add-ons to help you make your car bigger and better than it was when you bought it. These parts can enhance the look, power, performance, and even sound of your car or truck. Salvage yards categorize their parts by make and model, plus these days, everything is listed on a central database. Just let the salvage yard owner know what you need, such as shocks, and he can find it for you easily. Browse the desired area and pick through the junked cars or trucks to find the parts you need. Mechanics do this often. They may need a spare radiator, seat, or engine to include in a vehicle they’re working on. Hobbyists who like to restore old cars can increase the performance of their vehicle by buying used parts at a junk yard.
