Did anyone else notice the word "Zetec" in the credits? Strange...

Nothing I didn't already know about the internal combustion engine...

interesting video, I didn't know much about the internal workings of the engine so I of course learned a lot ... although I wish some of the parts were labeled ... nice video either way

I for one did learn something: I didnt know todays motors had little sprayers for the oil, I do know that the older motors use the crank to slap oil up onto the pistons. My only reasoning for believing this is that my 86 AMC I6 runs on 5-10 psi oil and our focus' run at what???

this does deserve a w00t!!

Well, the description says Zetec Rocam, which it seems to be based on the description.

In 2000, Ford of Brazil developed a cheaper version of the Zetec-SE engine, to compete with the classic VW AP engines. It is 8v SOHC instead of 16v DOHC and its body is made of iron instead of aluminum. Also, its camshaft is driven by a chain instead of a belt. As a result this engine exhibits rougher behaviour, producing more vibration and noise.

On the other hand, it has a superb torque output thanks to the addition of the Rocam (Rollerfinger Camshaft) feature. It's also a much smaller engine than the SE version, which allowed it to be installed on the Ford Ka, replacing the Endura-E engine which by that time was considered underpowered and outdated.
Not sure how the SPI relates to the Rocam.

It looks very similar to another video of the Ford Engine that I saw on here a day or so ago. It's not as in-depth with the heating and cooling but it shows the same concept but with a duratec, here.

I know that this is a duratec, but I thought that since it was similar enough, and just as educational that you would like to be aware of it.

I thought it was EXTREMELY fascinating. Yeah I knew how a motor worked already. but it was cool watching it happen. How the coolant flowed and the oil system. I was in awe. :)

It really can help someone visualize a lot about our engine. I thought it was rather interesting anyway, it captured my attention for 5 minutes.
Its not the size, its how you use it.
