Buick was founded in 1903 by David Dunbar Buick. Buick started off as an independent car manufacturer and the Buick Motor Company was well known for making and manufacturing the first overhead valve engine. Buick Motor Company was soon faced with losses which forced David Buick to sell his company to William Durant. During the glorious days when Buick motor Company was at the peak of its success, William Durant was able to earn a lot of money. This little fortune enabled him to acquire shares from many different automobile makers. General Motors was the name given to his mega group of companies. Buick, too, was a part of this prestigious group. The introduction of Riviera in the year 1962 is significant for the changes it brought about for Buick. The performance oriented powerhouse Wildcat was also introduced by Buick. The heady combination of luxury cars at affordable prices makes the Buick models of cars immensely popular.
The primary focus of the Buick engine is to convert the air and petrol into rotary motion. This allows it to drive the wheels of the car. The engine is dependent on a lot of other parts to accomplish this feat. Most Buick engines are equipped with pistons which move upward and downward in the cylinders. On one side of the piston is the combustion while the other side houses the crankcase. The Buick engine pistons are responsible for keeping oil outside the combustion chamber. To let air and petrol in and out of the engine at the proper time is controlled to a large measure by the valve train. Buick valves, rocker arms, pushrods, lifters and the Buick camshaft make up the valve train. The camshaft in line with the crankshaft is responsible for coordinating the timing.
The Buick camshaft opens the intake valve for the pistons to move down the cylinder. When the piston moves back up the cylinder the intake valve closes, thereby sealing the combustion chamber. Air and fuel is compressed. Compression makes the piston fire the spark plug and ignite the fuel. This pushes the piston back down and drives the crankshaft. Once the piston hits the bottom of the cylinder, the Buick exhaust valve opens allowing the gases to move out.
The crankshaft rides on bearings. These can wear out over a period of time. A loud medium pitched knocking noise in the engine could mean either replacing the bearings or the Buick crankshaft. In case if the rings on the pistons wear out, it is time to replace them as they will allow the oil to dilute. This will cause premature wear of the Buick engine as the oils ability to lubricate the engine will have diluted.
