Your factory engine has lots of different parts. The main parts, however, are a block, a cylinder head, and cylinders. Most cylinders have pistons. Every engine also has valves, a valve cover, and spark plugs, among other parts, such as a camshaft and crankshaft. There's even a separate sump or pan for engine oil. Each of the parts of a motor does something different. The valves, valve covers, and cylinder head, for example, seal the engine. There are two kinds of valves: intake and exhaust. Intake valves regulate the air and fuel a motor burns for power. Exhaust valves regulate the fume levels inside it. Valve covers protect valves, while the cylinder head both keeps gas from escaping and prevents oil leaks. Camshafts, though, synchronize valve activity. Engine pistons pressurize that gas and oxygen as they pump, making more potential energy available. Spark plugs ignite the mixture, and it combusts, producing power. Crankshafts convert power into rotary motion. Drive shafts and transmissions use that motion to turn wheels and spin tires. Finally, oil pans or sumps store motor oil for lubricating parts. Many other components, from gears and bearings to sprockets and rings, fit everything together properly. If any wear out, though, engine problems almost certainly follow.
