I figured I would start a thread for everybody like me that has little or no understanding how a Turbo Diesel motor works. There is no such thing as a stupid question in here. Please don't insult people's lack of intelligence or experience.
If there is another place that has this info already posted, please post a link.
I have a couple questions to start with:
1- How does compresson ignition work? (I know there are no spark plugs.
It's just cylinder compression that ignites the fuel, correct??
2- How does the HPOP fuel injection system work? Common rail? Are there other systems?
3- How does the turbo, intercooler, etc. work?
