Why would a diesel car lose power and is there any timing adjustment on diesel cars?

A dirty air filter will cause a lost of power, also a clogged fuel filter will - Yes there are timing marks - but they are on the injector pump & usally don't change unless the hold down is lose. A good injector cleaner is a good idea to use when you fill-up.

Sounds like the timing is out of adjustment, perhaps timing chain has jumped

The only engine used in a Dodge vehicle that does not have a timing chain or belt would be the Cummins diesel. The Cummins diesel uses timing gears.

Head gasket failure, timing belt slipped a notch, turbo shot, loss of compression.

no, the 5.9l and the 6.7l cummins turbo diesel engines uses a series of timing gears not a chain or belt. reasoning for this is the power impulse and torque created would stretch the chains or belts over time. The gears last much longer. All truck hd truck engines use timing gears.

4.0L I6-NO 4.7L V8-NO 3.1L Diesel-NO 2.7L Diesel-NO It would have a chain.

May need timing adjustment and/or, but less likely, air filter replacement.

Need the year model.... It's like asking what's the valve adjustment for an isuzu.....Every engine has different spec's and procedures for the timing. If i knew the year model i could answer the question cause it would take 40 pages to explain all the procedures for every model year.

The 5.7 Vortex engine lets the onboard computer time the engine. Initial timing is accomplished when the timing chain or the distributor is installed. Both the timing chain and the distributor have an index mark for the initial adjustment. The computer does the rest. To activate the computer adjustment one would have to disconnect the battery for a few minutes, I do it for approx. 10 minutes, however it can be done in less time.

tps out of adjustment. Must be adjusted using a voltmeter. Basic idle set screw ( BISS) out of adjustment. Ignition timing incorrect. vacuum leak. good luck

Carb needs adjustment? Accelerator pump needs replacement? Choke needs adjustment? If you have a diesel you might want to check the glow plugs.

If you have run this vehicle within the proper design parameters, you may simply need a diesel fuel system cleaner. If you have run red diesel, you will definitely need fuel system cleaner. If you have turned up the engine, it could be injector pump wear. If this engine has high miles, it probably needs a valve adjustment. My bet lies with the fuel system. Try "Power Service" Diesel fuel supplement.

I think you can buy a diesel generator at any of the places that you buy a gas one. Why do you prefer diesel over gas. Diesel would be harder to start in winter cause diesel fuel tends to gel when cold out.

Was it "timing"? If so- a slight adjustment to the TPS would change it a little in responce time for spark advance

It would be beneficial if you have a back-up diesel generator to use when power outrages usually occur in your place. You can find an efficient diesel generators at homedepot.com.

Fouled, damaged injectors or incorrect timing on fuel injector pump

Generally speaking, timing belts should be serviced at 90,000 miles.

Possible: Timing is off, or carb is out of adjustment. I would have the timing checked. Timing might be off right at the crank and cam. Chain drive. It can slip or just have too much slack, depends on mileage.

a battery for diesel will have more power.a petrol battery for say a ford van would have Cold Cranking Amps: 420Capacity: 45 AhThe battery for the same van but diesel would be Cold Cranking Amps: 450Capacity: 55 Ahor about 30% more power

Worn timing chain Incorrect oil pump (timing tab) The harmonic balancer has broken free on its rubber mount (twisted) The throttle positioner is out of adjustment. refer to tech manual for proper adjustment The terminals t to e1 have not been connected in the data link connector located beside fuse box by battery The distributor has not been installed correctly

No it cannot unless alternator is not charging the only power a diesel requires is for fuel cutoff solenoid

If a Vortec engine shakes or rumbles at low RPMs it likely needs a timing adjustment. It would also simply need a tuneup.

The fine adjustment knob is used with the power objective on the microscope. Since the objective is already at the highest objective possible for that microscope, using the coarse adjustment knob would focus to much on the object making the details harder to read. Using the fine adjustment knob, you are able to see the fine details within the object or organism you are studying. The higher the power, the finer the knob and the lower the objective, the coarser the knob and objective.
