Foreword
There are several areas that have changed drastically during the last few years with diesel engines and will greatly affect the near future of diesel engine technologies. The highway trucking industry was the first to require these changes to meet federal EPA emissions guidelines for diesel engines back in the late 1980s. In the mid-1990s these same guidelines were required of the off-highway heavy equipment industry. Now even areas not affected in the past such as the marine, petroleum, and agricultural industries have come under these new requirements. They will change these indus
tries in the same way they have previously changed the trucking and heavy equipment industries. During the last 20 years only certain engine horsepower sizes or industries have come under these federal guidelines. However, the 2007, 2010, and 2012 emissions guidelines will cover and affect all horsepower sizes and industries. Additionally, in most areas the current technologies to meet the 2007 guidelines will not completely meet the 2010 and 2012 requirements without additional technological changes or improvements. These technological changes are inevitable and future technician training needs will be a reality. This is where diesel engine course books like Troubleshooting and
Repairing Diesel Engines can help the technician stay current with these changing technologies. To show how rapidly these changes have taken place, information of some past and current examples of those areas affected are mentioned. Since the inception of the EPA guidelines for diesel engines back in the 1980s, most major engine manufacturers have meant the following reductions. Engine particulates have been reduced by 90% and nitrous oxides by nearly 70%. Added to the equation in the 1990s was noise pollution, with reductions required in engine noise levels from 83 to 80 decibels. Although this doesn’t seem like much, it is equal to a 50% noise energy reduction. Add to that the effects of the reduction in fuel sulfur in diesel fuels from 5% to 0.5% to 0.05% (in ppm, 5000 to 500 to 50). Sulfur being the lubricating element in diesel fuels has required many changes to fuel system components. The increased requirements to meet federal EPA emissions have made it extremely important to develop components that can survive these changes. The number of changes that have been made to diesel engines to meet these requirements would be too numerous to mention at this point. However, some of the more interesting areas that have greatly changed due to these requirements include lubrication requirements, fuel system components, and the use of electronic system controls and diagnostics. Those other areas not discussed here will be covered later in this book. As the demands on the diesel engine have increased so have the requirements on such things as the oils and filters used to maintain these engines. Just 15 years ago we were teaching the needs of using American Petroleum Institute (API) categories CD, CE, and CF type oils. In just the last few years the demands placed on the diesel engine have caused the industry to develop new oils while moving through categories CG-4, CH-4, CI-4, and now CJ-4 oils.
