How does an engine work?

The piston descends, sucking air into the cylinder through open intake valves as fuel as fuel is injected. With all valves closed, the piston comes back up, compressing the fuel air mixture. Compressing the mixture delivers better power and efficiency. A spark ignites the fuel-air mixture, and the resulting combustion forces the piston into the bottom of the cylinder again. The piston comes back up, pushing the spent mixture out through open exhaust valves.
