What makes diesel different from gasoline engines?

Aside from the kind of fuel that diesel engines use, the most obvious difference is that diesel car and truck engines don’t use spark plugs. Instead, they use a compression system that ignites the fuel.

Diesel is also better for fuel economy, as the fuel burns at a slower rate.

Are diesel better than gasoline engines?

This really depends on your personal preferences and is a question that every car and truck owner needs to decide for him or herself.

Diesel engines do generally last longer, with the proper maintenance, and are better for fuel economy. But they also usually cost more upfront and repairs can also be a bit more costly.

If you want a car that’s going to last you for many, many years, however, diesel may be the way to go.

Just weigh the pros and cons and decide what’s best for you and your family.

What are some of the most common diesel engine repairs?

Diesel engines produce more torque than gasoline engines, which is why they’re popular in trucks and other large vehicles. But they don’t produce as much horsepower as other engines, which means you’re less likely to have service issues like cracked gaskets and piston problems.

A diesel engine has a reputation for being more reliable and longer lasting, but that doesn’t mean service issues aren’t going to arise from time to time. Common problems that may require diesel service and auto repair include dirty fuel filters, loose throttles and leaking around gaskets and connections.

Major diesel repairs are also sometimes needed, of course, but they are rarer than with gasoline engines. But when repairs are required, they can often be a bit more expensive due to the complexity of the engine and the higher cost of needed parts.

My Hyundai Veracruz catalytic converter needed to be replace and the vehicle is using two. The price of one is around... $350 each. The estimate of the parts and labor was around $1500 they said. So I asked they to do and left my vehicle. I got a call the following day and I was told that it is ready and the cost is $700. I was thinking he called the wrong person but he told me that they only need to replace one. So more

This was the best customer service experience I ever had with a repair shop. I am an out of state traveler and my... check engine light came on. I submitted a request on Yelp for a nearby repair shop. Most shops were booked. Texas Elite responded within 10 minutes. I was able to drop off my car and it was repaired within 3 hours. The customer service was great, because the driver Joey drop us off and picked us up for lunch. Joey also dropped us off at home. Fred was amazing he was totally honest about the cost and time for the repairs. I strongly recommend Texas Elite Auto and more
