Abstract

Corrosion is one of the chief factors contributing to the wear of the cylinders and piston rings of an automotive engine. It is caused by acids formed in the combustion process, particularly those resulting from the combination of certain gases with water condensed on the cylinder walls in low‐temperature operation. In this article the author discusses the mechanism of corrosive cylinder wear, together with the factors influencing it, and reviews some of the methods of mitigating the attack.
