Unlike gasoline engines that use a spark plug, diesel engines utilize compressed ignition to start the engine and therefore requires different processes.

Understanding Diesel Repair
So, what’s the big difference between a diesel engine repair and a gasoline engine repair? Well, it mostly revolves around the way they ignite the air/fuel mixture in the combustion chambers. Diesel engines utilize extreme compression to ignite the mixture while gas engines utilize a jolt from a spark plug. Other than that, both engines operate relatively the same! With that being said, an owner should still be aware of the specific maintenance requirements when it comes to their diesel vehicle. Here are two things to keep in mind.
