Diesel Service

Distinction Between Gas-Powered Cars and Diesel

Diesel cars and trucks on a regular basis get a reputation for being much less environmentally-friendly than gas automobiles, yet we say this is an unreasonable presumption. While both gas and diesel motor mix and press gas and air inside their cyndrical tubes, a gas engine uses an ignition system to generate the power that keeps your car running, while a diesel engine develops stress in the fuel-air mix itself to generate energy. Although diesel fuel is usually more expensive than normal gas, you will get even more gas mileage out of diesel. Mostly all car makes have a range of diesel vehicles, making diesel a viable option for many individuals.

How do I know if my auto requires a diesel service?

Whether you have a Power Stroke, Duramax, Cummins, or another diesel motor, we at Horizon Auto Center in Rockwall can perform a diesel service for you. As sturdy as diesel motors are constructed to be, facets of the engine can in most cases wear down. Some indications that something is incorrect with your diesel motor consist of:

  • Your engine will not start or is tough to start.

This normally recommends minimized compression or troubles with gas efficiency. It’s typical for a diesel motor to crank up a bit when it’s started, but it should not be hard to keep the engine operating.

  • There are sounds coming from your vehicle.

If you hear that the noise is uneven or there is a knocking type of noise coming from the engine, there is more than likely a problem with your fuel injectors. You might experience minimized efficiency till you have the problem repaired.

  • There is black or white smoke appearing from your automobile.

Whatever concerns you are having with your diesel motor, you can bring your vehicle to Horizon Auto Center in Rockwall.
