Welcome to Part 2 in this educational series on the functioning of the diesel engine! Today in Part 2 we’re going to cover the Stages Of Combustion. If you missed Part 1 simply check last week’s posting.
That mechanical marvel under the hood of your car called a “motor” or “engine” is a large machine made up of hundreds of smaller parts, systems and subsystems. They all work together turning air and fuel into thousands of small explosions, which move your car down the road, getting you from point A to point B. If it seems complex, you’re right, it is.
No doubt there’s been a few times you’ve looked under the hood of your car to discover all the road grime and collected grease. While it’s easier to close the hood and pretend you never saw the mess to begin with, others may want to make the engine bay as clean as possible, whether it’s for personal reasons or they want to make it more appealing to potential buyers.
