Diesel and gasoline engines differ significantly. Let us count the ways…

Diesel Repair requires extensive knowledge of the ways in which diesel engines differ from gasoline engines.  A diesel engine is significantly heavier than a gasoline engine. Diesel engines compress intake air into a small space inside a cylinder. This feature of diesel engines causes extreme heat. The heat then ignites a mist of diesel fuel which is injected into each cylinder simultaneously. Diesel engines require frequent oil and filter changes.
