What Parts Of The C7 Corvette Engine Do You Need To Know?

No one likes to have to deal with engine trouble at all. Whether something small is happening on the engine side that is causing a small hiccup, or you’ve got a smoking engine and a car that will not start, engine trouble is frustrating and engine trouble is going to take some time to fix. Either you need to find yourself a repairman who can fix the issue or roll up your sleeves and attempt to take on the issue yourself.
But whether you have decided to fix an engine problem yourself or seek to have someone else fix it for you, you need to know the parts of your C7 Corvette Engine because it can give you or a repairman a guideline about how to find and fix the problem. Here are some of the most common engine parts that you need to know whenever the hood of your C7 Corvette is popped!

The Type Of Engine

There are several different types of engines that were used whenever the C7 Corvettes were the most important cars on the road by GM. While it is very very easy to simply call an engine an engine and move on with your day, you need to figure out what type of engine you are working with.
For example, the GM 6.2 Liter LT1 was the base of the engine, which was extremely important because of the new free flowing intake manifold. These individual runners directed the incoming airflow, and that increased the power of the engine.
Additionally, the LT4 was another engine that came up in the C7 Z06 Corvette, which was an extremely powerful engine and produced 650 horsepower at 6,000 RPM.  It also had direct fuel injection and active fuel management as well.
Knowing what type of Corvette and what type of engine you have is going to be extremely useful whenever you are working on repairs.

The Fuel Rails

Much like a real train, you need to make sure that these rails will keep on running! Fuel rails are the high pressure tubings that take all the fuel to the injectors in the internal combustion engine. These are designed to get all the fuel that your car needs to the injectors that allow your car to drive and move forward.
For many people, they also use serious C7 Engine Bay Accessories for these fuel rails as well, such as the brushed and finished Lower Fuel Rail Covers for dry sump, and Lower Fuel Rail Covers for oil filling, and you can also make sure that you prepare the rest of your engine with 2014-2019 C7/Z51 Corvette Stingray Plenum Cover Kit.
Understanding all these parts of your engine, as well as some of the various reasons that your engine might shut down or stop working, can help you ensure that you are able to prepare your engine the next time a problem occurs while you are driving.
