Pay for professional upgrades

There are lots of diesel engine specialists out there who focus their efforts on upgrading cars or trucks just like yours. Whether you opt for Strictly Diesel performance parts or items manufactured by another brand is down to you. However, most experts agree that you will see surprising results if you upgrade your engine and let the mechanics work their magic. Some of the upgrades you might like to consider relate to:

  • Fuel systems
  • Injection pumps
  • Air intake
  • Turbo

So, you just need to search online for a company that upgrades diesel engines, and then get in touch with them to discuss your options.

Improve your exhaust system

If you want smooth acceleration, low noise, and reduced fuel consumption; there is no getting away from the fact that you need to upgrade your exhaust system according to sites like Explain That Stuff. Just bear in mind that an entire refit could cost a lot of money, and so you might have to pay for the job using a credit card or something similar. Still, experts claim that it’s possible to improve the performance of an average diesel engine by around 15% if you choose to opt for packages of that nature. Just research the subject online and learn as much as possible before you contact specialist mechanics and start the ball rolling.

Take the vehicle for regular checks

Diesel engines are prone to many different issues and faults which is why you need to take your vehicle for regular checks. That is the best way to ensure you spot any problems before they become severe, and you never have to deal with decreased performance. Of course, you only need to do that if you know nothing about mechanics. Ideally, you’ll want to take your car or truck to the garage at least once every 12 months. You should do that, regardless of whether you think there is anything wrong or not.

Those three steps should help to ensure your vehicle performs as expected all the time. If you ever notice that you’re getting fewer miles to the gallon or you’re not reaching the same speeds as before; you just need to call a mechanic and arrange an appointment. Diesel is cheaper than petrol in most countries, and so it’s no surprise thousands of people choose those engines. At least now you know how to ensure you’re vehicle never lets you down, and always remains in the best condition. Good luck!

What’s Happening with the Mazda CX-5 Diesel?

When it comes to bringing a diesel engine to the United States, Mazda has talked the talk for a long while but has yet to walk the walk. Years ago, the company discussed bringing a Mazda 6 diesel to our shores, but when that fell through, the popular CX-5 crossover became the prime candidate for Mazda’s 2.2-liter Skyactiv-D engine in the States. Mazda confirmed last year that a CX-5 diesel is happening, and we caught a prototype version of such a vehicle running around Michigan this weekend, suggesting that its official arrival may not be too far off.

The CX-5 we spotted was devoid of any badging, but certain clues identified it as a diesel-powered model. Look closely and you’ll see an intercooler mounted behind the lower front grille, a tachometer that appears to redline at a low 5500 rpm, and a single exhaust pipe instead of the standard gasoline-powered CX-5’s dual outlets.

Mazda has stated previously that the diesel engine will be offered on the 2017 CX-5 and that it will arrive in the second half of this year. At this point, however, Mazda has yet to share any more information about the CX-5 diesel, which brings that timing into question. A Mazda spokesperson told us that the company is currently working with the EPA and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) toward final emissions certification on this powertrain but wouldn’t share any more timing details. Mazda noted to us that preproduction models may be running around; this prototype has a Bosch sticker on its windshield, which could indicate the supplier—known for its fleet of diesel test vehicles in our area, southeastern Michigan—could be conducting testing for Mazda.

  • Driven: 2018 Chevrolet Equinox Diesel
  • Mazda CX-5 Research: Reviews, Specs, and More

If and when the CX-5 diesel arrives, it’ll have some competition in the form of the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox, which offers a 1.6-liter diesel engine that achieves up to a 39-mpg EPA highway rating. We’ll keep our ears open for more news on Mazda’s oil-burning crossover over the next few months to see if the company can make good on its earlier promises.
