since the invention of automobile, man began to deal with high efficient system by low heat rejection and utilizing the heat for further operation. With the shortage of fuel, this problem got major attention to the researchers. The main idea was to effective utilization of heat obtained from combustion of fuel and to decrease heat loss from combustion chamber so it is utilized in power stroke. This paper deals with temperature distribution analysis of the conventional (uncoated) and ceramic material coated IC engine combustion chamber components. In this study, firstly, thermal analyses are investigated on a conventional (uncoated) diesel piston and cylinder head, made of aluminum silicon alloy and cast iron respectively. Secondly, thermal analyses are performed on pistons and cylinder head, coated with ceramic material MgZrO3 by means of using a commercial code, namely ANSYS. After that, the results of ceramic coated components are compared with conventional one. The effect of coating on thermal behaviors of components are investigated. In which noted that the maximum surface temperature of the coated piston and cylinder head is increased about 479.4 0C and 108.6 0C respectively.
