I'm a beginner in this field. What are all the wires and tubes for? Just the ignition coils and sensors?

i'm an amature but i'll tell you what i know. this motor has a couple of sensors on it. crank and and rpm sensor i think. this need to be wired to the ecu of course so there are two sets. the variable timing has wire to it going to the ecu. as for the plugs he mentions that on this paticular motor there oddly enough is a combination of spark plug wires that go to ignition coils that are elsewhere and ignition coils that are over the plugs. as for the tubes did you mean the tube running down to the plugs? some engines have the sparkplugs so far into the engine that they need to extend the connection to the plug hence the long tubes. as for them being tubes i think in order to seal and help keep the water out because of there position. somebody may have a better explination.

Most of it seems pretty straight forward. I started playing car mechanic simulator 18 which is neat because it teaches you about all the parts of an engine, but the only wires you deal with are ignition wires. (It's not perfect it doesn't even have battery wires.)

 

I definitely realized if I came into some serious money I would restore cars as a hobby. Though the amount of tools you need to do a car top to bottom are insane.

 

And of course body work is a completely different skill in itself.
