Piston ring is a component that has an important role related to vehicle performance. This component is in the form of a ring mounted on the piston wall. Maybe the word piston ring is familiar to all of us, but most of us do not know what the function of the piston ring is. The piston ring is divided into 3 parts, the top ring is the piston ring which is installed at the very top of the piston, the second ring is the piston ring which is installed under the top ring, and the oil ring is installed at the bottom of the piston.

The three piston rings have their respective duties and functions.

The following is a function of the piston ring.

The top ring has a function to prevent compression leakage that occurs due to the combustion process in the combustion chamber. The top ring also has a function to withstand the pressure generated in the combustion process.

The second ring has a function to prevent leakage of engine oil from entering the combustion chamber. This compression ring has tapered outer side, because of its shape when the piston moves down the no.2 compression ring will sweep all the engine oil in the engine cylinder. The combustion chamber must be conditioned to be sterile, it must always be ensured that oil does not enter the combustion chamber. Because if it does it will cause problems in the combustion process.

The oil ring consists of the upper oil ring, oil ring, and lower oil ring. This ring expands like a spring and has oil cavities around it. With the cavity around the ring, oil can enter and pass through it so that the cylinder wall lubrication process can occur. It can be concluded that the function of the oil ring is to accommodate oil and lubricate the cylinder wall.

Ring Piston Always make sure that your vehicle's piston rings are always in good condition. If you find symptoms such as weak engine compression or engine oil burning in the combustion chamber, causing white smoke to come out of the exhaust pipe, it could be that your vehicle's piston rings are weak and abnormal and need to be replaced.
