Removal of pollution from a power supply system of the diesel engine

Cause of infringement of passableness of the fuel filter, decrease in capacity developed by the engine, emergence on internal surfaces of components of a power supply system black a precipitation or slime, etc. violations corrosion development, or education in system of a colony of microorganisms can be. Microorganisms usually arise in moisture containing in fuel if the last does not leave in time from a tank. Products of their activity can cause development of corrosion of metal surfaces of a path.

In a similar situation carrying out complete cleaning of system is required. If cleaning is carried out carefully, the probability of repeated emergence of microorganisms will be minimized.


  1. Completely empty and remove a fuel tank.

The merged fuel should not be reused. Carefully wash up it wash out a tank from within pure diesel fuel. Highlighting itself a small lamp, make sure of absoluteness of purity of internal walls of a tank. If completely to remove all deposits by a way of washing it is not possible, resort to steam cleaning — having achieved satisfactory result, once again wash out a tank pure diesel fuel.

  1. Disconnect from TNVD of the line of giving and fuel return, remove the fuel filter and wash out топливопроводы pure fuel.
  2. Replace the fuel filter, establish into place a tank, restore initial connection of fuel lines and fill in in a tank pure diesel fuel. Remove air from system (see. Air removal from a fuel path of the diesel engine). At the first operational phase of the car make sure of completeness of restoration of operability of a power supply system.

Corrosion products, as a rule, do not get to TNVD, being late in the fuel filter. If, nevertheless, there is a suspicion that the pump is polluted, it is necessary for clearing also carefully. Do not undertake attempts of independent carrying out this procedure — charge its performance to specialists of car-care center.

Moisture present at atmospheric air can be condensed on walls of a fuel tank, from where it gets into the power supply system highway. Capacities for storage of diesel fuel (including both big tanks, and fuel tanks of cars) are more subject to a vlagoobrazovaniye, than capacity for gasoline storage as pressure паров is much higher than the last. For the purpose of minimization of hit of condensate in fuel, constantly hold a tank full and try to avoid long idle times of a vehicle.

In shops of automobile accessories always it is possible to get the special additives serving for prevention of emergence of microorganisms. Producers of high-quality fuel add this sort of additives in diesel fuel.

At identification in fuel of signs of development of microorganisms, inform on this fact of the owner of the filling station which regular customer you are and, at least for some time, use other station.
