Car Maintenance

Car just clocked 300,000 kilometers.

D-4D actually stands for Direct Injection 4 Cylinder Common Rail Diesel Engine. The Common rail is a computer controlled enjine that is able to inject a fine mist of diesel fuel into the piston shaft at very high pressure.

The result is the same power and refinement as a petrol engine, but with better fuel efficiency, lower emissions and increased torque.

One feature of the electronic controls associated with the common rail is that unlike old diesel engines, it requires constant electrical power to synchronize firring. Unlike old diesel engines, there’s no need to wait for glow plugs to warm up before starting the engine.

With the D-4D, it fires up without a need to wait or warm up.
