Quiz: can you name these basic car parts? (sponsored)

Do you know your carburettors from your crankshafts? Time to put your mechanical know-how to the test

Most people will learn to drive at some point in their lives, but besides the most basic tasks - such as opening the bonnet and checking the engine oil level - the UK driving test doesn’t require drivers to demonstrate a working understanding of how a car’s mechanical components function.
