Internal combustion is a small controlled explosions that occurs in an automobile engine to generate power. This process occurs in four strokes or steps in the various chamber thousand of time in a minute. These steps include intake, compression, combustion, and exhaust. The process powering internal combustion is called combustion cycle.

Intake: this is the first stage in the combustion cycle. It moves the piston up and down with the motion obtained from the crankshaft. The purpose of intake is to allow fuel and air to enters into the chamber for mixture. The valve opens when piston moves down, causing the fuel-air mixture to be released.

Compression: compression stroke as the second stage of the combustion cycle occurs as the piston moves upwards, causing the fuel and air to mix by compressing.

Combustion: this is when the explosion happens. As the piston moves upwards before moving down, a spark is produced by the spark plug, igniting the mixture and causing the small explosion. This rapidly move the piston, helping to produce the energy needed to power the engine.

Exhaust: the final stages of the combustion cycle is called the exhaust, stage when the exhaust valve opens to discharge the gasses created by the explosion. This process occurs when the exhaust valve opens. Process is repeated thousand time as far the engine is running.
