Many improvements have been made to diesel engines since they started being used in vehicles. Diesel engines often get 500,000 miles without regular rebuilds. Turbo-charging has lead to much more powerful diesel engines, which in turn leads to better acceleration. Direct injection has made them run much cleaner than early iterations of the diesel engine. With all of these enhancements, diesel engines are widely used and the need for quality diesel engine repair service is rising.

How does a diesel engine differ from a gasoline engine?
The most obvious difference between a diesel engine and a gasoline engine is the fuel they require. Like the gasoline engine, the diesel engine is an internal combustion engine that converts chemical energy available in fuel to mechanical energy. A primary distinction between diesel engines and gasoline engines is the way conversion happens. Fuel is mixed with air, and compressed by pistons in a gasoline engine, and then ignited by sparks from spark plugs. In diesel engines, the air is compressed first, and then the fuel is injected. When the air is compressed it heats up and the fuel ignites.
Another significant difference between a diesel engine and a gas engine is in the injection process. The majority of car engines use port injection or a carburetor. Diesel engines use direct fuel injection — the diesel fuel is injected directly into the cylinder.
