Diesel-engined cars must be admittedly less environmentally friendly when compared to gasoline engines, Friend Garage. Especially in Indonesia, where the automotive market still applies the Euro 2 exhaust emission standard for this type of engine. Nevertheless, diesel cars still have their own fan base. The reason is, its character is much higher, especially in terms of torque.
Diesel engines that are known for being tough can also be less powerful. If this happens, the origin of the problem is between the fuel filter system, the distribution system, or the combustion chamber. There are five causes that make diesel engines less powerful. All of that happens especially in conventional diesel engines, not those with common rail technology.
1. Solar Filter
Dirty diesel filters, thereby reducing the flow rate and volume of fuel required. The engine finally lacks the fuel mixture and the power production from the runway is not optimal.
Dirty diesel filters also hinder the filtering process. In addition, these impurities can enter the injection pump, then cause problems with the injection pressure. Indications of a problematic diesel filter can be seen from the water separator indicator light that lights up for no apparent reason.
2. Solar Pressure Pump
The diesel pressure pump is located in the diesel filter or near the injection pump. The purpose of this component is to suck fuel from the tank. Underpowered diesel cars can be caused by the weakening of the diesel pressure pump, so that its distribution to the combustion chamber does not … Read More
