How Diesel Engines Work

Diesel repair for diesel engines have less maintenance because they don’t use spark plugs. Because they have a compression ignition instead of a spark ignition, they need heat rather than a spark to ignite the diesel in the cylinders. Diesel is injected into compressed air in the combustion chamber. The heat generated by the compressed air causes a spontaneous ignition. Some engines use glow plugs to increase the heat in the combustion chamber.

Common Diesel Engine Problems

CarDi Automotive can handle diesel repair of most common diesel engine problems and more, including:

  •  Glow Plugs: Engines that use glow plugs require them to start, especially when it’s cooler outside. If just one glow plug fails, it’s difficult to get the engine started, if you can get it started at all. If it does start, it may run rough and produce excessive smoke.

  • Fuel Injection: Without a working fuel injection system, your engine may not start. If it does, it runs rough, uses excessive fuel, and belches black smoke.

  • Turbocharger: A turbocharger forces more air into the combustion chamber, which means the engine has more power. If a turbo fails, it could leak oil, cause the engine to have reduced power, or create excessive noise.

  • Cooling System: If the cooling system fails, whether from a malfunctioning water pump, bad hose or coolant leak, a diesel engine easily overheats. Always keep an eye on the cooling system, as overheating causes catastrophic engine damage.

  • Exhaust System: Newer diesels require diesel particulate filters. When these clog, the engine suffers from poor performance and increased emissions. CarDi Automotive diesel repair can clean or replace the DPF.

  • Electrical: As with any engine, diesel engines can have electrical problems with the many senders and sensors they use. It can also have issues – though rare – with wiring.
