How do engines work and how do they get power to the wheels?

A V-shaped engine with eight cylinders = V8 — four in each cylinder bank. The combustion chamber in an engine is where the magic happens. It's where fuel, air, pressure, and electricity come together to create the small explosion that moves the car's pistons up and down, thus creating the power to move the vehicle. In a front-engined rear-wheel-drive car, power is transmitted from the engine through the clutch and the gearbox to the rear axle by means of a tubular propeller shaft.
