Now that you’ve got an idea of the components that make up a diesel system, and what they do, understanding how the system works in a more cohesive way isn’t difficult. At Select Auto and Truck Repair in West Orange we understand what’s going on in your fuel system while your diesel engine is running.
On gas engines, the fuel delivery system is pretty simple - an electric pump draws gas from the tank, and pushes it to the injectors. Diesel systems are a little more complex. At Select Auto and Truck Repair in West Orange, NJ, we like to keep you informed about what’s on your truck, how it works, and how to maintain it, so you stay reliably on the road.
The turbo on your diesel pickup is a precision engineered component. As a result, proper maintenance is essential to keeping it going strong. At tens or even hundreds of thousands of RPM, keeping everything in good shape is absolutely necessary. Fortunately, turbos don’t really require any special maintenance - they just make the maintenance you do all the more important.
Now that you know why your turbo is necessary, you’ll want to know what the turbocharger is made of. Turbos are intricate and precise components, but not actually all that complicated or difficult to understand. Here’s a rundown on the parts of a turbocharger, from Select Auto and Truck Repair in West Orange, NJ.
Whether you drive a Cummins, Duramax, or Powerstroke diesel truck, there’s a good chance you’re familiar with turbochargers. Over the past couple of decades, turbos have nearly become stock equipment on diesel pickups, and are becoming increasingly common on gas vehicles as well. But what are they, how do they work, and why are they there? Select Auto and Truck Repair in West Orange, NJ has the answers.
Currently, the future of electric vehicles looks promising - though it won’t likely replace your Duramax, Powerstroke, or Cummins engine any time soon. Still, we don’t know what the immediate future holds. This battle was waged once before in the past, with combustion engines taking the throne over electric power. Here’s a brief history of electric automobiles, from Select Auto and Truck Repair in West Orange, NJ.
