Engine sludge is a very common and also very costly problem. Many automotive mechanics call this the Black Death of Engines. Engine sludge forms equally in both gasoline and diesel engines! What is Engine Sludge?
What causes many unnecessary marine diesel engine breakdowns? One of the main marine-diesel engine breakdown issues is blocked and contaminated fuel systems. The modern ULSD (Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel) diesel fuel is clearly formulated differently to
Engine blow-by is due in a large degree to the progressive accumulation of deposits throughout several parts of engines. Piston ring grooves, cylinder walls, valves, diesel injectors, diesel particulate filters, turbochargers and exhaust gas recirculation
What causes Engine Blow-by? Engine blow-by is caused by compression pressure in the combustion chamber escaping into the crankcase past stuck piston rings and/or glazed bores, and consequently over-pressurizing the crankcase. This condition can cause
Normally, excessive engine oil use is caused by fouling deposits in the combustion chamber. These deposits are often carbon from unburnt fuel. Over time they can become rock hard and can cause significant damage to
In 1944, research scientists were working on organo-metallic materials as an octane booster in gasoline. Their work concentrated on a group of chemicals classified as metal based combustion catalysts. One chemical in particular, ferrous picrate,
Common Rail Diesel (CRD) Injected engines have been developed and introduced to meet the latest emission standards. Wonderful news for the world we live in! However, with the addition of this new technology and the
Cat, Cummins, Mack & Detroit oil soot, carbon & blow-by issues Normal diesel engine operation, but more particularly, starting, become increasingly more problematic as engine deposits build up over time, especially during cold weather. Types
Diesel Particulate Filter Problems - and how to solve them Most modern diesel engines are now fitted with Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) to further reduce noxious exhaust emissions. Although this is a great step forward
In the past, poor gas mileage and decreased performance could often be remedied with a Do-It-Yourself engine tune-up. Nowadays, it's a completely different story! Modern engines now run on highly modified and additive-blended fuels, are
Winter! Always just around the corner! And with it often comes problems with your car, truck, boat or machinery - particularly when it has a diesel engine. An often-occurring problem during the colder months is
A low oil pressure warning light or on-dash message is becoming a more frequent complaint from owners of many late model gasoline powered vehicles, especially those with engines fitted with solenoid controlled valve lifter systems.
Wear is one of the most costly factors in operating vehicles or machinery, causing direct cost, inconvenience and lost production through engine, transmission and driveline problems. Lubricating oil viscosity (oil thickness or drag) is the
EZYPOR Liquid Measure Perfect measuring device, allows safe and easy dispensing. Fits any plastic bottle with a 28 millimeter cap thread. (soda bottle) $9.95 Great addition to FTC Decarbonizer and Marine Diesel Stabilizer 16oz and
Depending on the product, the amount needed can be worked out pretty easily. As the products are mixed with either the fuel (diesel or gasoline), or the oil (engine, transmission, differential or hydraulics) at a
