Diesel Service in Kissimmee, FL

Difference Between Gas-Powered Cars and Diesel

Diesel vehicles often get a reputation for being difficult to maintain or fill with fuel, and for being dirtier, or polluting more than their gasoline counterparts. Historically, that may have been true, but newer diesel cars, trucks, and SUVs have changed with the times. While both gasoline and diesel engines mix and compress fuel and air inside their cylinders, a gas engine uses a spark plug to create the explosion that generates the power to propel your car, while a diesel engine builds pressure in the fuel-air mixture itself to generate heat. Although diesel fuel is usually more expensive than regular gasoline, diesel vehicles are generally more fuel-efficient and can drive farther on each gallon than gas-powered vehicles can. Many automotive manufacturers offer diesel vehicles. Ford, Chevy, RAM, and GMC have diesel-powered pickups, where Volkswagen, BMW, and Audi offer a variety of diesel-powered passenger cars. Additionally, there are several other diesels makes and models. This variety means that a diesel-powered vehicle is a viable option for many people.

Types of Diesel Engines

If you live in or nearby Kissimmee, FL you can come to RepairTech Automotive and DIY for all your diesel engine needs. There are several types of diesel engines different car brands use for their diesel vehicles. Ford cars will typically use Power Stroke engines. These engines have been manufactured by Ford itself since 2010; today's Power Stroke engines are known for their fuel efficiency, power, and lightness. Chevrolet uses Duramax diesel engines, which feature low torque, which allows your vehicle to carry more weight, exhaust braking, and increased fuel efficiency. Cummins is a Fortune 500 company that makes state-of-the-art diesel and natural gas-powered engines as well as engine parts. The Cummins engine is most commonly seen in the RAM line (formerly Dodge Ram) but can be found in other vehicles as well. Additionally, there are many other brands of diesel engines found in other manufacturers' cars, trucks, and SUVs.

How do I know if my car needs a diesel service?

Whether you have a Power Stroke, Duramax, Cummins, or another diesel engine, we at RepairTech Automotive and DIY in Kissimmee can perform a diesel service for you. As durable as diesel engines are built to be, parts of the engine can sometimes break down. Some common signs that something is wrong with your diesel engine often include:

Your engine won't start or is hard to start - This typically indicates low compression or problems with fuel delivery. It’s normal for a diesel engine to crank up a bit when started, but it should not be extremely difficult to get the engine running.

There is noise coming from your vehicle - If you notice that noise is inconsistent or there is a knocking sort of sound in the engine, there may be an issue with your fuel injectors. You will probably experience reduced performance until you have the issue repaired.

There is black or white smoke coming out of your vehicle - Smoke or fumes coming out of your diesel vehicle that is not normal for daily operation can be alarming. It could be an indication of a major or a relatively minor issue. If you're seeing thick black or white smoke, call RepairTech Automotive and DIY to schedule an appointment.

Whatever issues you are having with your diesel engine, you can bring your car to RepairTech Automotive and DIY in Osceola.
