Jakarta – The cause of easily damaged diesel engines usually occurs due to trivial things. However, the handling should not be careless because if it is wrong, the diesel engine will be damaged more quickly than the gasoline engine.
This was conveyed by Dani Muhammad Sidik, Head of Auto2000 Workshop Indramayu, West Java.
Diesel-engined cars can be said to be on the rise in the last five years. One of the reasons is the economical fuel consumption and easy maintenance.
According to Dani, the cause of the diesel engine being damaged quickly is due to the lack of attention to the diesel filter component. Therefore, the diesel filter should be replaced regularly so as not to damage the components in the engine.
“Solar filters that are rarely replaced will make the injectors clogged. In effect, the engine power will decrease over time and over time the engine will be damaged, the term is ‘ngobos“Well,” he said.
This dirty diesel filter is usually caused by the wrong use of fuel. Many diesel car owners do not use good quality diesel fuel according to its designation.
This is what makes the diesel filter dirty quickly and makes the injector clogged.
“This dirty diesel filter is because the fuel uses low cetane. Fuel with low cetane usually contains a lot of sulfur and quite high water,” he continued.
This has the potential to make more dirt residue left in the diesel filter. Over time the dirt is sucked into the injector which then makes it clogged.
So, when is the right time to replace the diesel filter?
According to Dani, replacing the diesel filter must be done routinely every time you change engine oil or have regular service.
“It is better to replace it with engine oil changes or regular service. After all, the price of a diesel filter is also not too expensive, it would be better to replace it regularly,” he concluded.
