Service Description

Designed with regard to longevity, efficiency and optimisation, diesel engine systems are designed to use their own compression to ignite fuel. The fuel is combined with air in the gasoline engines, compressed by pistons, and ignited with a spark plug. In a diesel engine the compression rate is more than three times that of a normal gasoline engine configuration. The air is compressed in a diesel engine system at a high compression ratio which produces a large amount of heat. Following this compression, fuel is pumped directly into the cylinder, where it ignites the fuel vapor. Diesel engines are built without spark plugs. Instead, on colder days, diesel systems use glow plugs to start and operate more effectively. Glow plugs have two heating elements which allow them to quickly get very hot for a fast start. Turbochargers improve the ignition of the compression by compressing the air flowing into the engine rapidly, thereby allowing more air to flow into the chamber. More air in the combustion chamber ensures the combustion cycle can be replaced with more fuel.
