The Differences Between Diesel and Gas Engine Repair

Unlike gasoline engines, diesel engine systems use their own compression to ignite fuel. They have significantly higher compression in the chamber than gas-powered engines. This means that the air-to-gas mixture is different as well. Due to the extreme compression, external sparking is not necessary. Thus, being built without spark plugs, a diesel engine runs more efficiently using glow plugs. Many of the new models can get 500,000 miles without the need to be rebuilt.

Diesel Induction Service

At least once a year or when fuel related issues are present in a diesel fuel injection. Diesel fuel will oxidize and form residues that deposit in fuel injectors and combustion chambers. These deposits will drastically affect the engines performance by clogging fuel injectors and creating irregular spray patterns. This service is designed for concentrated cleaning of the injection pump and injectors.

Always keep your vehicle in good condition and ensure the safety of yourself, your loved ones, and those around you!
