    Field and topic:
    Does anyone know how to translate "cruce de válvulas" in the context of 4-stroke engine function?
    ---------------------

    Sample sentence:
    Y se atrasa el cierre de la válvula de escape. Esta medida se conoce como cruce de válvulas.

    I believe it is "valve overlap".

    Cruce/Solape de válvulas.

    Valve overlap as daviesri says.

    "Valve overlap is time that the intake valve and the exhaust valve are open at the same time. "

    "Cruce o solape de válvulas es cuando están abiertas la válvula de admisión y la de escape".
