The unique aspect of the Sterling motor car was that it was a US brand produced by the Rover Company of the UK. The Sterling was produced as a derivative of the Rover 800-series. It was sold from 1987 to 1991. The other aspect was that it was developed exclusively for the American market. The alleged poor build quality and delicate performance in comparison to other American cars made this model unpopular. Although it remained popular in Europe, its production for the American market was discontinued in 1991. The peak year in US sales was 1988 when it hit a high of nearly 15,000 cars. Still to be seen on US roads, they are easily maintainable.
The Sterling engine has pistons which move up and down in the cylinders. Above the piston is the combustion chamber while, full of oil, on the other side is the crankcase. Connected to the Sterling engine pistons through a connecting rod is the crankshaft. The up and down movement of the piston in the cylinder rotates the crankshaft. The coordination of the Sterling crankshaft with the Sterling camshaft by a chain or belt controls the timing of the valve train. The idea behind the valve train is to let the fuel/air mixture in and out of the engine at the proper time. By creating a vacuum on the opening of the camshaft, the intake valve and the piston moves down the cylinder. This results in the fuel/air mixture getting sucked into the Sterling combustion chamber above the piston. On the engine pistons movement back up the Sterling cylinder, the intake valve closes and the combustion chamber gets sealed. The compression of the air/fuel mixture when the piston reaches the top of the cylinder results in the spark plug firing and igniting the air/fuel mixture.
The engine pistons are prone to wear and tear over a period of time. This can result in the dilution of the oil. The diluted oil is then unable to lubricate the Sterling engine causing it to wear out prematurely. Even though the exhaust system can absorb much of the heat, Sterling engine parts such as the cylinder walls, pistons, and cylinder head also absorb a huge amount of heat. In case of excessive heating of any engine part, the oil film burns away thus failing to protect the engine. This lack of lubrication can have disastrous effects for the Sterling engine. Therefore replace Sterling engine parts as and when necessary.
