    Understanding Diesel Engine Issues

    Diesel engines have many components and small systems, and problems with these can lead to hard starting and the need for a drivability diagnostic. When your diesel engine is hard to start, several factors should be checked. First, consider the temperature. Diesel engines rely on heat for combustion. If the engine uses glow plugs, they may need to warm up before the engine can start properly. Second, check the oil. Diesel engines require a lubricant to function efficiently. Engine oil prevents harmful friction and removes dirt and other debris. If your vehicle has a turbocharger, dirty or low oil levels can harm it, leading to drivability and hard starting issues. Additionally, a bad battery, fuel supply problems, and faulty fuel injectors can cause hard starting issues.
