How does a car actually work.

Depending on the design, these additional units are driven mechanically by so-called V-belts or toothed belts. Therefore, these play an essential role in the vehicle's functionality. Power is transmitted by means of permanently installed pulleys in various positions around the engine. In the traditional arrangement, a pulley connected to the vehicle's camshaft on the outside of the engine serves as the central drive unit for these assemblies. This rotates at the nominal speed of the camshaft when the engine is running, consequently when the accelerator is pressed this rotational movement accelerates.
