What is it?
 
Diesel engines are a type of internal combustion engine that use compression to ignite the fuel. This is in contrast to gasoline engines, which use a spark plug to ignite the fuel. Diesel engines are more efficient than gasoline engines and can run on a variety of fuels, including diesel oil, biodiesel, and natural gas. Diesel engines are typically used in heavy-duty applications, such as trucks and buses. However, they are also becoming increasingly popular in passenger cars.
 
What does it do?
 
Diesel engines work by compressing air in the cylinder to create high temperatures. Fuel is then injected into the cylinder, where it ignites and creates power. The exhaust gases are then expelled through the exhaust system. Diesel engines are known for their durability and longevity, as well as their efficiency. By using compression to ignite the fuel, they require less maintenance than gasoline engines. This lets them run for longer periods of time without needing repairs.
 
Typical Wear and Tear
 
Diesel engines are built to withstand a lot of wear and tear. However, they do require some basic maintenance in order to keep them running smoothly. The most common problems with diesel engines are fuel injector failure and turbocharger failure. Injector failure can be caused by a build-up of carbon deposits, while turbocharger failure is usually caused by a loss of lubrication. Both of these problems can be prevented with regular cleaning and servicing. With proper care, a diesel engine should be able to run for many years without any major issues.
