A Short History Of Diesel Engine


Gasoline engine for medium and large pickup trucks became past. Today, over 90% of the market is dominated by a diesel engine. Some of the new owners still don't know that this type of engine has its own characteristics of use and maintenance.

·         In previous turbine models 2000 or 2001, you have to let the engine at idle 15-30 seconds before turning it off. If the engine is turned off quickly, the turbine shaft will continue rotating without requiring lubrication, which increases wear and tear.

·         The high consumption of oil was common in this engine. The limit is usually 0.5 liters of lubricant for each 100 liters of diesel. If greater, because there is leakage.

·         The fuel filter has to be drained to remove the water accumulated during filtering. The driver himself can drain, stirring a screw. The best is to check the level every week. Too much water may decrease the fuel level and cause faults in the engine.

·         While starting the engine, wait for the light oil pressure and only then delete speed, it reduces wear on internal parts, it makes the lubrication at its maximum efficiency before increasing the load on the engine.

Some trucks have warmed or pre-ignition candle. Turn the key and before starting the engine, wait out the light indicating that the candle is heating the combustion chamber for better performance. But the procedure is only necessary in cold regions, such as in the south.

How it works?

When, in 1885, the German engineer built the first internal combustion engine capable of moving a vehicle with reasonable conditions of security and economy, commenced a rush for improvements, which lasts until today.

In 1894, another German engineer deeply observed the diesel engine and simplify the engine operating principle. Thus the diesel engine was born, which eliminated the need for a relatively complicated electric circuit for starting the combustion of gasoline. In this type of engine, heat is produced by burning of fuel that is released when air is highly compressed. The new engine, fitted with a much higher thermal efficiency than the gasoline engines, soon used in industrial setups and heavy vehicles such as large trucks and ships. Their service life, operational safety and low cost of maintenance are some of the features that make the diesel engine preferred this type of application.
