Trust Your Diesel Engine to Hoesly Automotive
If you drive a diesel engine, then you know they are different than your standard gasoline engine. You also know they require specialized care and maintenance. Whether its a common issue, or something more complex, you need to make sure you get your diesel engine serviced by technicians that know what they are doing.
Diesel engines, like gasoline engines, need regular service and maintenance. The good thing is when you take care for your diesel engine properly, it can last for hundreds of thousands of miles. But if you dont give it the proper care and timely attention it needs, it can break down much quicker. If your diesel engine isnt running as smoothly as it should be, then please come see us. Here are some of the most common problems with diesel engines.
Common Diesel Engine Issues
Troubles Starting diesel engines dont typically start as quickly as a gas-powered engine, but if your diesel engine has continued trouble starting, or wont start at all, then it needs some service. A common reason for this is bad glow plugs. If your glow plugs arent working correctly, then please bring your diesel into our Vancouver auto repair shop for service.
Lack of Power if your diesel is starting okay, but the engine has a hard time holding power, you might have a clogged fuel filter. Another possibility is that the fuel injectors could have built up gunk. Too much lubrication is another reason diesel engines can lose power. A loose throttle linkage can also cause your engine to sputter or lag. But no matter the reason, if your diesel doesnt have sufficient power then come see us at Hoesly Eco Automotive.
Black Exhaust another problem to watch for with diesel engines is excessive black exhaust. If you notice a lot of black exhaust form your tailpipe, then you likely have a fuel related issue. This happens because too much air enters the combustion chamber. When there is more air than fuel, it causes the black exhaust. This could also mean that your fuel injectors are cracked, which causes the excessive air.
Bad Fuel diesel engines get great fuel milage, which is one of the main reasons people drive them. But if you have bad fuel, it can affect your engines performance greatly. Diesel fuel is thicker than gas, so it tends to get contaminated easier. If the contaminated fuel reaches the engine, it will damage it.
