Why do most cars have engines in the front? We pick 5 possible reasons

We pick five main reasons for why most cars have engines in the front? 1) Manufacturing Cost: Having the entire engine-transmission-drive-cooling package in the front saves on assembly and production costs. The transmission box is directly attached to the engine and it operated manually by a lever mechanism. If the engine is placed at rear side, it will cause the transmission box placed at rear side which requires a more complex mechanism to operate transmission by driver manually. Similarly, the front side engine are easy to connect with control linkages like clutch and accelerator. This is also easy for servicing. 2) Engine Cooling: We know why cooling of an engine is essential for proper running for a car. If an engine got hot, it will fail soon or later.

What does a tiny arrow next to the fuel pump icon on your car's fuel gauge indicate? Along the arc between the F and E is a symbol of a fuel pump. To the left of it is an arrow. What is it for? I received variety of answers as to what the arrow indicates. About 95% car owners were not aware while some had witty answers to reply. So, the answer is simple. The arrow indicates to which side of the car the fuel filler cap is on. If the arrow points left, that means the car’s filler cap is on the left side of your car!! This mystery has gone unnoticed for too long. As it turns out, this little arrow is super helpful. You may be surprised to know, but the majority of new cars from the past co...
