COLD WEATHER STARTING: Introduction

COLD WEATHER STARTING

LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Identify the different types of cold weather starting aids.

Diesel fuel evaporates much slower than gasoline and requires more heat to cause combustion in the cylinder of the engine. For this reason, preheating devices and starting aids are used on diesel engines. These devices and starting aids either heat the air before it is drawn into the cylinder or allow combustion at a lower temperature than during normal engine operation.
