Diesel Engines in Southaven

The Mechanics Behind Diesel Engines

Gasoline and diesel engines are very similar. Both are types of internal combustion engines designed to change chemical energy into mechanical energy. In all combustible engines, energy is created to move pistons back and forth within cylinders. The motion of the pistons moves the crankshaft and that creates the motion needed to move the wheels of the car.

Small explosions power both diesel and gasoline engines. Between gasoline and diesel engines, there is a difference in how those explosions happen. Diesel engines switch up the order of events. In a diesel engine, air is compressed first and then the fuel is injected. Diesel engines don't have spark plugs because air heats up when it's compressed.

Diesels in the World

Diesels in cars, as mentioned above, aren't very popular in the United States. Europe manufactures many models of cars that are powered by diesel. As diesel improves, it's becoming more and more popular in the United States.
