To date, there are many types of diesel engines. And that's good for one, it is absolutely not acceptable for another. Therefore, we decided to give the most basic tips that are universal for any type of diesel engine: 1) Do not bring the balance of diesel in the tank to "zero". (Maybe "airing" the fuel system and damage the fuel system.) 2) If possible, fill the high-quality fuel. Remember that the presence of filling the store with the hot cakes, not a guarantee of quality fuel.
3) in a timely manner to change the air filter, especially on the engine with turbocharger. Plume of black smoke trailing behind the car said that the fuel burn properly. In the combustion chamber or an excess of fuel or lack of air. Taking into account the operation of the diesel engine in Moscow – and Moscow – is the dust and sand in the spring and summer of poplar fluff – to change the air filter, along with oil change, but not less than 10.000 km. And in the summer – the replacement must be done more frequently than in winter. Do not be lazy once again open the air filter box and check its status. Untimely replacement filter – it came out of turbocharger failure and mass airflow sensor (meter).
4) timely change oil and oil filter. We recommend 7 – 8.000 km. Taking into account the operation of the diesel engine in Moscow – and Moscow – a tube, it is difficult operating conditions.
