Diesel Fuel Injection Service Terminology

If you own a diesel vehicle or are thinking of purchasing a diesel car or truck, you may want to first familiarize yourself with some key terms. The following will help you better understand the diesel fuel injection engine and the services that accompany it.

  • Cloud Point - A diesel vehicle's cloud point is the temperature at which the engine ceases to function. Diesel engines are much more sensitive to cold and many require an engine block heater in order to provide them the power to start in freezing weather conditions.
  • Diesel Particulate Filter - As diesel fuel and engine oil is processed, it can produce small particles. In order to prevent those particles from being ejected through the exhaust pipe, a filter is in place to capture them. Diesel gas is also required to be free of particulates, and some states have clean air laws and regulatory groups governing these issues.
  • Direct Injection - In some diesel fuel injection systems, the combustion chamber is divided from the cylinder. However, in a direct injection system, there is no division and the fuel is injected directly into the cylinder.
  • Turbocharging - This is a performance term that can be used by race vehicles and passenger vehicles alike. A turbocharged engine compresses the air within the intake valve which increases power output.
  • Fuel Cycle - Regular service appointments may give rise to the term fuel cycle. If you hear this, the mechanic is referring to the entire process that fuel undergoes in order to be converted to energy within your car or truck.
  • Additives - Diesel vehicles have several types of gas additives available. Some contain oils to lubricate the motor while others treat damage or keep systems clean and efficient.

    Diesel fuel engines power large trucks and machinery. Operators run these trucks, and when they need to fill up with gas, they head for the diesel pump at the station. When these diesel fuel injection engines fail and need repair, technicians skilled in this area can help. They may be found at gas stations, services stations, or dealerships. Because diesel engines generally boast more power than gas burning engines, they are subject to more stress, which can lead to more frequent repairs. Sometimes the engine needs a new part, while other times, an entire overhaul is needed. Some technicians specialize in engine rebuilds on diesel fuel injection engines. As part of services, they may offer maintenance. This may be par for the course for truckers working for a large transportation company. Regular maintenance is needed on fleets of trucks that are depended upon to go great distances. Diesel fuel injection engine services may also sell accessories and power performance additions. Their product lines may even extend to related auto parts like starters and exhaust systems. Mechanics typically buy bulk diesel engines cheaply from wholesalers. These engines may be used not only in trucks but in marine capacities as well. Industrial engines are also heavy-duty and take diesel fuel. Fuel injection, which mixes fuel with air in an internal combustion engine, is a necessary component in these types of turbo charged engines. Fuel efficiency, measured in gallons per mile, varies by the type, make, and size of the diesel engine. Technicians can replace parts, repair parts, rebuild engines, and then get them up and running again for operators to use in their trucks and boats.
