Technically, a diesel engine does not need any outside electrical source to keep it running. Injectors are mechanical and keep running until they are forced off, usually by a solenoid. Check the shutoff mechanism to make sure it isn't sticking. This diesel shuts off using vacuum. If your vacuum is low or leaking, the vehicle will not shut off using the key. You have to open the hood and push the SHUT OFF plate near the top of the engine in the fuel linkage. Vacuum leaks are common and will keep the door locks, climate control, and engine shut off from working. The shut off valve, located on the back of the injection pump, can fail. It is vacuum operated and the diaphragm can tear. Vacuum test this valve. If it holds vacuum keep looking for other vacuum leaks, if it leaks replace it.
A diesel vehicles does not need to be running. A diesel ignition in a Diesel engine comes from compression and not spark.
this vehicle is a diesel and does not have a wiring diagram for the ignition circuits as being a diesel it does not have spark ignition
Diesel has highest ignition temperature.. So only diesel cant be used in petrol engine
No spark plugs in a diesel.
A diesel engine that is starved for fuel will lose prime. This means that you will be unable to start the engine once it has stalled.
There are two vacuum lines on the ignition switch (where you put the key in). Remove the coverings to expose them. Check to see if the lines are loose, clogged, or disconnected.
No, spark plugs do not cause ignition in diesels. The fuel compression causes ignition
This happened to me. Remove the coverings from the ignition switch. You will see two vacuum tubes connected to the switch housing. One of them is broken, leaking, or clogged. Replace it.
none, use a good fuel additive and change filters regulary you will have no problems.
This engine is an inline 6 cylinder diesel engine. It runs on Diesel.
The selection of diesel fueled Mercedes Benz cars can be found on the Mercedes Benz website. One could also visit their local Mercedes Benz dealership to speak with a salesperson about the options.
A 'spark ignition ' engine is your regular gasoline engine as opposed to a diesel, which is a 'compression ignition' engine
May require a new ignition barrel. The 106 is known for problems with the ignition barrel. Looking at a bill of �60 - �200 depending on where you go and the type of immobilizer used on the car.
this is one of those problems where your tear down the colum and go from there.
Incorrect on both accounts. The distillates in diesel are different than gasoline, in that they have different ignition points and cetane ratings. Because of this, adding gasoline to diesel will inhibit the ignition in the diesel engine, just as adding diesel to a gasoline engine will cause the fuel to ignite too quickly. In general, never mix the two. You can add diesel-specific additives to diesel, but gasoline is never recommended. More info: http://www.turbodieselregister.com/mixing_gasoline_and_diesel.htm
No, it is a six-cylinder gasoline engine. If it were diesel, it would be labeled "300SDL" and make a lot more racket when the engine is running. The 300SEL is a W126 body style and is longer than the 300SE.
first up, if you are putting gas in a diesel, you are lucky to have it running at all. next if you are using diesel and letting it get low, in the winter it will gel, causing problems, allowing fuel to get low will also allow dirt and crud from bottom of tank to passed thru fuel lines. try changing fuel filter and see if that fixes the problem
Rudolph Diesel, 1858-1913. Invented the compression ignition engine.
The Liberty used a VM diesel engine, the Grand Cherokee has used a Mercedes and a VM diesel engine.
Models with a D in there name are diesel. At least in the USA. The 560SEL is not.
Should be a timing chain, not a belt on a C220 Diesel
If only the ignition was on with no other appliances running you may be lucky. But the glow plugs in summer are not that critical. It could well be that there will be insufficient power to turn the engine over
The rise of VAT and oil prices are not good, this delays the fuel ignition as people are waiting longer before going to a fuelling station to fill up their vehicles there for this problem is ruining the ignition of our engines as the vehicles are running on the sludge at the bottom of the fuel tanks.
If you are referring to ignition timing, diesel ignition timing is primarily controlled by the injector timing. This is also why diesel engines run such high injector pressures. The timing is very carefully controlled by the vehicles computer.
