Some contributors to equipment failure include:
Addressing these concerns early on will help you forestall many problems and give you advance warning for those you cannot entirely prevent. Some common engine issues to look out for:
Belching black smoke used to be the norm in old diesel engines but advancements in engine technology have made it rarer.
Black smoke indicates incomplete combustion. Fuel is not burned properly because the air-fuel ratio in the combustion chamber is improper.
This can be caused by:
Blue smoke from your exhaust means your engine oil is burning. It is more common when starting your engine in cold weather. But you shouldn’t ignore it.
Engine oil lubricates the moving parts of your engine, thus protecting them from the worst effects of wear and tear. When your engine oil burns it’s consumed faster and risks leaving your engine’s components unlubricated.
This causes wear and tear to accelerate, and slows down the efficiency of operations. In the worst cases, it can damage your engine entirely.
Blue smoke is caused by:
White smoke often indicates faulty fuel injectors. It means diesel goes through the exhaust pipe completely unburned, a rather unfortunate situation and a waste of costly fuel.
Apart from faulty injectors, other causes of white smoke are:
Fuel filters get clogged by deposits and other external impurities. These accumulated impurities often form gelatinous blobs that block the filters and lead to a reduced fuel flow rate, a situation that might lead to total engine shutdowns.
Lubrication is essential for moving parts. By reducing friction between the said moving parts, lubricants prevent excessive heat from being generated by all the rubbing, mashing, and grinding together that happens.
Moving parts also get warped out of shape when they get overheated, a situation that compromises their functionality and might damage them entirely
This makes checking fluid levels in your engine, gearbox, coolant tank, and other vital parts an important maintenance ritual that ought to be conducted regularly. A lot of problems can be avoided this way.
