The Differences Between Diesel and Gasoline Engines

The Differences Between Diesel and Gasoline Engines

Since we work on vehicles with both diesel engines and standard gasoline engines (as well as hybrids) at Schultz Auto and Truck Repair, we get this question all the time. What makes diesel and gas engines so different? The Similarities Let’s start by looking at the similarities. Both are types of internal combustion engines using a four-stroke process. They convert the fuel into power by repeated, controlled explosions that move the pistons up and down inside the cylinders. That motion turns the crankshaft and the car is able to be propelled into motion. The Differences Where diesel and gasoline engines differ is in how those explosions take place. A gasoline engine will mix the fuel with air. It is then compressed by the pistons and ignited by the sparks coming from the spark plugs. In a diesel en ... read more

The Importance of Your Radiator

The Importance of Your Radiator

The radiator is the central component of your vehicle's cooling system. It is a very important part of your automobile, which means it needs to be taken care of as part of regular preventative maintenance. When damage occurs to your radiator, you will want to get it repaired as soon as possible. If not, it could lead to much more significant (and costly) engine problems. What Your Radiator Does In simple terms, the radiator and cooling system are what keep your vehicle running at proper temperatures. Radiator coolant (otherwise known as radiator fluid or antifreeze) is cycled through the engine and back through the radiator. This process ensures that the engine isn't running too hot. If your engine does overheat, it could be a fault within the radiator or another cooli ... read more

Why You Need Oil Changes

Why You Need Oil Changes

When talking about preventative maintenance for vehicles of all shapes and sizes, nothing is more important than the standard oil change. Most car and truck owners are pretty well trained at getting their oil and oil filter changed every 3,000-5,000 miles along with other basic maintenance services. It's just part of life, like filling up gas or diesel when the tank is empty. However, a lot of vehicle owners don't quite understand why oil changes are so important. When to Get Your Oil Changed Most vehicle manufacturers will recommend changing the oil and oil filter at 3,000-5,000 mile intervals. Most newer vehicles (and especially any using synthetic oil) will only need this maintenance every 5,000 miles (roughly every 5-6 months depending on your driving habits). Older vehicles that use standar ... read more
