Most people may think that you can start a diesel engine the same way you can start any other engine, but this isn’t true a diesel engine has glow plug’s which need to be warmed before they can be started.
If you choose not to let your glow plugs warm up there is a possibility that there could be damage to the emissions system if the combustion chambers aren’t warm sufficiently. Therefore the positive side of letting the glow plug’s warm-up is a cleaner fuel burn and the vehicle will idle more smoothly.
Now that you have all that information. Tune in as Jamie here at McCloskey Motors goes through a couple of vehicles to show what to look for when starting. He has 3 vehicles to show how to start one is a very custom and sleek 1999 Ford F-250, next there is the Volkswagen Golf TDI, Last but not least we have a RARE 2010 Ford F-250 with a manual transmission and diesel engine.
