Re-build your diesel. Put on a custom chip and that will make up for engine power loss.

NO! Don't attempt it. Don't run diesel in your gas engine and don't run gas in your diesel engine! It will cause your engine to run improperly with loss of power and lots of white or blue smoke. It will clog your engine and if you run it with the wrong fuel too long, will result in complete engine failure.

Most unlikely. Glow plugs simply preheat to allow the engine to turn over from cold.

What does reduce engine power means?

Some diesel engines need to recycle to clean the air filters. Perhaps the 206 diesel engine is trying to recycle but is not completing the action. Also, some of the newer diesel engines need to go through a system check before starting the engine. Try turning on the key until the vehicle completes a system check (this could take about 30 seconds or more). Then, turn the key to start the engine.

you do not say if your engine is gas or diesel. A gas engine has many sensors, any one of which could cause a problem, not to mention a borken catalitic converter, which could also have many causes. I have not found any reasons for a diesel to experience this problem. I think, that to correctly answer this question, you need to give a more detailed question.

1) It prevents damage to injectors and engine from debris in fuel. 2) Yes. This filter should be replaced at every other oil change to prevent power loss.

yes because load affect the efficiency of engine , it can be improved by increasing the supply of oil in governer.

Oil leakage and loss of compression and power loss.

My idle was running rough and slight loss of power (5 cylinder engine). The power loss is more noticeable on cars with less cylinders.

Yes, fouled spark plugs can cause engine shaking, and loss or power. I'm not sure about knocking but I'd guess that too.

Probably the increased load on the engine caused by the power steering pump.

Shouldn't cause any damage! Adding 10% of petrol to diesel fuel was standard practice in sub-zero winters in the days before "winter-grade" diesel. It helps prevent "waxing" where the diesel fuel will turn into something like a soft candle wax at low temperatures. You may notice a slight loss of power until the petrol is out of the system. 4 litres in 40 litres of diesel should not damage your engine, the one thing it will do is give you MORE power as it works a little like a bottle of injector cleaner that you may add to a tank of diesel from time to time. It will cause higher temperature explosions in your combustion chambers and a little more power.

engine horsepower is the total power produced by an engine.whereas net horsepower is the remaining power after power loss from many reasons..in aviation, they call brake horsepower.

loss of power after,or with black smoke , indicates the turbo has quit.

Power loss in a 93 Ford Ranger 3.0 is often caused by a dirty hair filter, weak spark, and worn plugs. Performing an engine tune-up will often restore much of the power loss.

Only for a back-up power. In the event of power loss, diesel would occasionally be used to generate just enough power to allow all the trains to return safely to the station. Occasionally in third-world countries, they utilize diesle due to the lack of electrical power.

What would help would be an articulate question. Does "lose power" mean a loss of voltage/current, or a loss of engine power (horsepower/torque)?

it seems like the problem is with your engine piston rings not expanding resulting poor compression and loss of power. it reveals an engine problem and complete overhauling is recommended if affordable otherwise only rings can be installed from best mechanic of town.

Sounds like the engine is missing, check the plugs, wires, timing

Loss of power could be caused by many things. The engine could have a fuel pressure issue, or there could be low engine compression among many things. A check of computer codes may give an idea of where to start troubleshooting.

is there water in the oil, and now sign of damage on the head by an engine machinist, it might have a hairline crack in the block

If an engine was not assembled properly it could cause a low power complaint.If an engine was not assembled properly it could cause a low power complaint.
