Why Do Diesel Engines Have More Torque?

Diesel engines were initially designed to produce enough power to move heavy loads. You’ll typically find them in light trucks, agricultural applications, construction equipment, and other types of automobiles. Diesel engines produce more torque to cause a rotation. Where they fall short in horsepower, they compensate with torque. Gasoline engines are the opposite. Where they … Read more

Throttle bodies do the same thing, but are found in modern internal combustion engines that use a fuel injection system. Fuel injection replaced carburetors when the latter were phased out. Carburetors were … Read more
