We all know that before a heat engine Is to produce power it needs fuel and air (mixtures) before combustion then power.... . I wanted to know what component or part in the engine is responsible for the air intake and how does that part or component works.... as in fuel injectors for giving fuel to the engine for mixtures then compression

 We have inlet manifolds or intake manifolds which supply air-fuel mixture to engine.

Inlet Manifold / Intake Manifold :

 But how does air reach intake manifold ?

 Air intake system provides air to intake manifolds.

 Air intake system has :

  1.  Air filter
  2.  Mass flow sensor,and
  3.  Throttle body.

Throttle body:

controls the amount of air flowing into an engine,

  • When accelerator is pressed, throttle plate opens and allows air into the engine. 
  • When the accelerator is released, the throttle plate closes and effectively chokes-off air flow into the combustion chamber.

 They are located behind front grille of automobiles.
