    Here's one: Differences between the preventive maintenance of Gasoline and Diesel Engines. There are some people who claim that Diesel engines are a lot more expensive to maintain (like it needs calibration), while others say Gasoline engines are more heavy on the pocket. So which is which?

    intay ko din kasagutan ni Doc Diesel, Ph. D. sa mga katanungan dito.

    *KCboy,
    medyo nag worry ako sa post mo, ako kasi more than 115,000 km na di pa nagpapacalibrate. dinadaan ko na lang sa biodiesel pag medyo mausok na ride ko. oks naman basta naka regular load ko at least 1-2%, mga once or twice a month ko ginagawa per full tank.

    My apologies for not getting back to you as promised....had my hands full the past week and I realized I couldn't gather all the answers in one sitting and I'm afraid won't be able to finish it too so I'll discuss it one by one here.....

    I won't go into the nitty gritty details of how the diesel engine works since I would presume that everybody knows about that already but if you don't here's something worthwhile to read...

    1st Topic..

    1. Tell Tale signs

    The most common signs that your fuel injection system needs calibration are the ff:

    * Black / White / Blue and irritating smoke and that includes what others would describe as maanghang sa mata.
    * Sluggish / no idling
    * Slow power or none at all. Donít expect launching power in a diesel.
    * Unusual than normal driving power and or engine noise like metal tapping sound or misfiring.
    * Required PMS or tune up which is separate from engine tune up. This is what a lot of people ignore or donít know.

    Other "unique" problems can be a basis for calibration of which a proper diagnosis is to be done first. Remember, not all problems are the same.

    Doc Diesel,

    My 2001 XTO a/t is starting to emit white smoke (more than ever). My mechanic says na palinis lang ng nozzle tip. If so, how much magpalinis nowadays and if ever, how much ang replacement? Or should I have the engine calibrated na rin? Thanks.
