Identifying Common Diesel Engine Problems

Many vehicle owners love driving diesel vehicles. Diesel is cheaper than gasoline, and, comparatively, it has significantly better mileage. While diesel is a great option for many, it is not invincible and exhibits its own unique engine issues from time to time.

As a diesel vehicle owner, it's important to know what to look out for. Here are some common issues experienced with diesel engines:

Oxidized Oil

If your diesel engine is left dormant for a long period of time, air can get into the oil sumps. This air can cause the oil to bubble, which can interfere with the lubrication process and cause the insides of your engine to rust.


If left to sit for a period of time, water may get into your oil sumps, which can also be dangerous for the health of your engine.

Issues Starting the Vehicle

Diesel engines use their combustion to burn the fuel in your car, unlike gasoline engines that spark the ignition using electricity. In colder months, your diesel engine may have a difficult time getting started, and if this problem persists, it may be time to call your diesel mechanic.

Black Exhaust

Black smoke from the exhaust can indicate several unique engine problems, including a faulty diesel pump, injector, air filter or valve issues. It's important to have these problems addressed right away.


While it's true that diesel vehicles are typically noisier than gasoline-powered cars, if your diesel engine is making more noise than usual, there may be an issue that needs addressing.

It is always best if you are worried about the health of your diesel engine to have it inspected by an experienced diesel mechanic as soon as possible.
