When it comes to diesel engines, it takes more knowledge of how the engine was designed to operate, than a gasoline fueled engine. Diesel engines have been around since their invention in 1890 but it wasn’t until the early 1990’s when they started to change and become more complicated. During this time the government started to mandate emissions regulations. Just about every problem with a diesel engine can some how be linked back to an emissions issue.
Why is any of this important? Most shops and most mechanics knowledge is based off of the old design of the diesel engine before emissions. Without proper knowledge of the emissions systems on today’s diesels will result in misdiagnosing and improper repair of the vehicle. Something as simple and putting the wrong coolant in a diesel engine could cause a catastrophic failure. Most manufacturers have come out with their own specifications of oil, coolant, DPF fluid, and diesel fuel additive just to ensure you get the most out of your diesel engine.
