Whether a truck can be used for a long time often depends on its key part-the engine.
Among them, three filters are particularly important as an important player in protecting the engine. The engine is like the “heart” part of the human body, and a good filter is equivalent to the “kidney” part that removes toxins from the body.
Does the filter not clean affect the life of the engine?
Diesel engines mostly use a high-pressure common rail fuel system, and in order to ensure high-pressure injection, the system needs to precisely control injection pressure, injection flow, and injection time. The workmanship of its accessories is very delicate, so there are higher requirements for diesel quality, especially the control of diesel cleanliness, which is quite strict.
If there is moisture or impurities in the diesel fuel that is not filtered clean, it will cause damage to the high-pressure pump of the injector for a long time. Impurities that are not filtered will directly cause wear and tear on the parts in the fuel injector, and damage to the fuel injector will cause problems such as unstable engine operation, reduced power, and increased fuel consumption, which will affect the normal operation of the vehicle.
In addition, the fuel with excessive water content entering the engine will reduce its combustion efficiency and cause the engine to accelerate weakly. If you add low-quality diesel fuel, its sulfur content is high, and it will easily react with water to produce sulfuric acid during combustion, which will gradually erode engine parts and reduce the service life of the truck.
At the same time, the components of the high-pressure common rail system are very expensive. If the electronic control injector is damaged, the maintenance cost is quite high. In comparison, the price of the filter is much more gentle, and the price is second, mainly to ensure the truck’s performance is intact, prolong the service life of the vehicle, reduce maintenance costs, and save worry and effort.
