Resource Highlights

In this article you will find out about the basics of diesel intake, compression, power and exhaust.

The four strokes of an engine are pretty much the same mechanically, but as you know, if you have worked on diesel engines, the intake stroke is where gas and diesel differ. You have intake, air and fuel coming in the gas engine and you have only air coming in the diesel engine.
