what is the firing order and what is the purpose of flywheels and lifters


Asked by Nov 16, 2015 at 03:44 PM about the 2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 5 RWD

Question type: General


1 Answer


The firing order is the order in which the fuel charge is ignited in the cylinders. The lifters actuate the valves opening and closing them from mechanical interaction with the camshaft(s) and the flywheel does a couple of things. It connects the crankshaft of the engine to the transmission torque converter or clutch (automatic or manual transmission) and helps smooth vibrations.
