How Diesel Engines Work?

Diesel engines share some similarities and some pretty big differences when compared to conventional gasoline engines. This is why it's important to have professional technicians service your diesel car or truck. Diesel engines were created in 1878 by a man named Rudolf Diesel. His goal was to create a more powerful and efficient alternative to traditional gasoline engines and in a lot of ways he succeeded. Diesel engines perform in the same way as regular engines in terms of internally combustion for energy, however the injection process differs. Majority of gas engines use a different injection system called a "port injection system" that combines air and fuel outside the cylinder then injects it, while diesel engines use direct fuel injection into the cylinders. This is a significant difference for mechanics to understand when working on the vehicle.
