What does the Camshaft and Crankshank look like? this is a camshaft What does  camshaft do? Located in the “top end” of an engine, the camshaft is a critical part of the valve train that allows air and fuel to enter the combustion chamber (the space above a piston) and exhaust gases out after they burn. A modern internal combustion engine (IC) can have up to four camshafts — or dual cams — with four valves per cylinder (two intake and two exhaust), while a single-cam setup has only one of each valve. valves. this is a crankshank what does a crankshank do?

According to a Toyota site that I visited there are over 30,000 parts in car counting the screws.
