Guys a couple of motoring questions:

How long do you warm up a diesel engine sa umaga?
How about kung if the engine is still hot after use?

How long do turbo diesels need to be cooled down?
Paano kung short trip[ lang ( 10 min )and the vehicle barely exceeded 40kph , does it still need to be cooled down?
Salamat

Modern engines do not need to be warmed up, especially diesel engines. On the old carburetted gasoline engines, yes. A cold carb especially on the old VW engines "ice up" on startup especially when there's lots of moisture in the atmosphere. But on fuel injected engines, a good 30 seconds is sufficient.

What's important during start-up is for the oil to lubricate the engine fully before applying any load on the engine. Drive slowly during the first few kilometers to bring the engine up to operating temperature (that includes the engine oil).

Turbines need to be cooled down if:

1) You have been driving in excess of 100 kms constantly for about 30 mins.
2) Your vehicle is carrying extra load or towing a trailer.

One and a half minutes of cooldown is sufficient. Refrain from idling the vehicle excessively. This only wastes fuel and low oil pressure is not good for the engine.

One thing that I may add to save fuel is to PROPERLY inflate the tires on your vehicle, and install the RIGHT SIZE TIRE. I've seen a lot of people in the Philippines oversize their tires for aesthetics and lowering the tire pressure to give them a softer ride, but the results are not good. Oversized tires and low tire pressure put strain on the engine, drivetrain, and could make the vehicle unstable and stop longer.

Tire data is found usually on the driver's door of the vehicle. Follow what the tire data says and it will give you the comfort, stability, fuel economy and performance. Fuel savings could come to as much as 5%.

Check your air filter regularly and replace if dirty (especially on turbocharged engines). Use the right viscosity oil for the vehicle based on the ambient temperature, and change the oil every 5,000 kms or 6 months, whichever comes first. Cut the oil interval to half if you're always carrying heavy loads or towing a trailer.

For turbo diesels I would suggest warming up the engine at least 1 minute or so, this is to ensure not only proper lubrication in the engine but proper circulation of oil in the turbo bearings as well.

Not much difference anymore, percentage-wise, between price of diesel fuel and gasoline . And most gasoline engines can run quite well enough on regular; premium not necessary. So, is it worth getting a diesel-engined car? I am thinking of a Pajero, one of the new big ones, but.....

If you're comparing a typical 2.5 - 3.0 liter diesel to a 1.8-2.0 and above gasoline engined car then the difference is still significant, especially if we're talking about direct injection or common rail diesel engines.

However if you're considering sub compact cars such as the Jazz, Swift, etc. (1.5 and below engines) then the difference becomes minimal at best.

Doc, tagal ko na nga d nakakaputok, haven't even been to PB in a while, pero lagi naman ako nagvivisit ng BOGs hehe just ask away if you have a question :)

benj: tapos na kasi project Trooper ko. Now, I need to spice up my daily driver, a 1998 GLXi Lancer. Kelangan lagyan ng konting go-fast gadgets para naman merong oomph! Yun naman ang nakaka-miss sa CRV ko!

sir Ante: I took Benj' advise regarding the 3.0L Trooper vs. the 2.8L Pajero Fieldmaster and opted for the Trooper, kahit na orphan na ito. Ample power, plush interior, great ride and consistent naman at 8.5-9km/L for such a big vehicle.
The new Pajero Shogun is a love it, hate it affair with its design.

For our family, getting a diesel van was worth it because we chalk up a lot of kilometers in a short span of time. My Sedona has run over 147,000-km to date in its 4 years of existence, and we haven't had to have any overhaul or major work done on the engine yet.
