Understanding Your Engine

One way to calm your concerns about repair is to understand how your engine works. While the terms “engine” and “motor” are often interchanged, they are not the same thing. The engine uses fuel combustion to produce energy to move your vehicle forward, while the motor converts that energy into motion. Gasoline and diesel engines work similarly in that they both work using combustion. The major difference is when and how air is used in this process. Both engines use sparks (generated from spark plugs), pistons for compression, air, and fuel to create small, controlled explosions that create energy from fuel. In a gasoline engine, air is added to the fuel before combustion, whereas air is compressed (generating heat for ignition) prior to fuel injection in a diesel engine. If this sounds like too much, don’t worry. Our team understands all these details so you don’t have to!
