We Are Experts When It Comes to Diesel Engines
Does your vehicle run on a diesel engine? Are you experiencing a problem with yours? Turn to the experts at Matthey Automotive in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. We work with diesel-powered vehicles almost daily, which means we understand how they function and common problems. More importantly, we know how to fix them. A diesel engine is similar to a gasoline engine in that they are both internal combustion engines (ICE). However, a diesel engine compresses air first and injects fuel second, whereas a gasoline engine mixes the air and fuel first, then it is compressed. A diesel engine aims to power larger vehicles via a larger torque output, such as trucks and vans. This is why diesel engines are most common in such vehicles, but they are also offered in select passenger cars and SUVs. In addition to providing more torque and consequently more power, they are also more fuel-efficient due to the compression sequence. If your diesel vehicle requires care, bring it to us for diesel repair and maintenance.
