    Talking How does my CDTi engine work?

    Realised that I actually didn't know very much about my diesel engine, other than you put fuel and air in, compress and it goes bang. Had a look around, and found these, which explain common rail injection and turbocharging in words of one syllable - even I understand!!!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diesel_engine

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_rail

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turbocharger

    Hope anyone else in the same position now feels a bit smarter too
