The Car Salon Tire Craft Division staffs the best diesel engine systems mechanics in Calgary , AB. Diesel engine systems—created by Rudolf Diesel—utilize their own compression in order to ignite fuel. Diesel engines have a combustion rate of more than three times that of a regular gasoline engine system in Calgary , AB.

Another advantage to owning a car or truck equipped with a diesel engines system is that most service or maintenance can wait until your car or truck reaches 750,000 Km’s. Ultimately, this means lower service, maintenance, and replacement costs along with better fuel economy over a longer period of time.

Diesel engine systems are built without spark plugs. The idea behind a diesel engine system is that the compression between air and fuel is so high that the reaction is able to explode without a spark from an external mechanism. With gasoline engines, the fuel is mixed with air, compressed by pistons and ignited by a spark plug. In diesel engines, the air is compressed and then the heat is injected into conditions of extreme temperatures so that the fuel ignites upon injection. A diesel engine’s fuel injector may be located in a few areas, but the purpose is still the same. Instead of spark plugs, diesel systems have glow plugs, which help diesel engines to start and run more efficiently in colder temperatures in Calgary , AB. Glow plugs have two heating elements that allow it to get very hot very quickly for fast starts in diesel engine systems. Turbochargers in diesel engines help in the combustion process by quickly compressing the air flowing into the diesel engine. This equals more power, since the more air in the combustion chamber means the more fuel can be added to the combustion process. Turbochargers help increase the compression ignition, which gives diesel engine systems better efficiency, and ultimately, more miles per gallon of diesel fuel.

If your car or truck is experiencing any problems with its diesel engine system, the answer may be in the smoke. Depending on the problem with your diesel engine system, it may release black, white, or blue smoke. Being able to distinguish the smoke will be able to help with a quick diagnosis over the phone. Most diesel engine problems in Calgary, AB point to something gone wrong in the internal combustion process of the engine. There may be something wrong with the turbocharger, the fuel injector, or glow plugs.
