A crankcase is the housing for the crankshaft in a reciprocating internal combustion engine.
A crankshaft—related to crank—is a mechanical part able to perform a conversion between reciprocating motion and rotational motion.
A cylinder is the central working part of a reciprocating engine or pump, the space in which a piston travels.
Internal combustion piston engines (those with more than one cylinder) are usually arranged so that the cylinders are in lines parallel to the crankshaft.
The cylinder block is an integrated structure comprising the cylinder(s) of a reciprocating engine and often some or all of their associated surrounding structures (coolant passages, intake and exhaust passages and ports, and crankcase).
In an internal combustion engine, the cylinder head (often informally abbreviated to just head) sits above the cylinders on top of the cylinder block.

Engine displacement is the swept volume of all the pistons inside the cylinders of a reciprocating engine in a single movement from top dead centre (TDC) to bottom dead centre (BDC).
ETKA is the official electronic parts catalogue (EPC) for Volkswagen Group motor vehicles.
Europe is a continent located entirely in the Northern Hemisphere and mostly in the Eastern Hemisphere.
A flat engine is an internal combustion engine with horizontally-opposed cylinders.
A flat-four or horizontally opposed-four is a flat engine with four cylinders arranged in two horizontal banks of two, each bank lying opposite the other, a crankcase between them.
A fuel is any material that can be made to react with other substances so that it releases energy as heat energy or to be used for work.
Fuel injection is the introduction of fuel in an internal combustion engine, most commonly automotive engines, by the means of an injector.
Gasoline (American English), or petrol (British English), is a transparent, petroleum-derived liquid that is used primarily as a fuel in spark-ignited internal combustion engines.
A grille or grill (French word from Latin craticula, small grill) is an opening of several slits side by side in a wall or metal sheet or other barrier, usually to let air or water enter and/or leave but keep larger objects including animals in or out.
A head gasket is a gasket that sits between the engine block and cylinder head(s) in an internal combustion engine.
