                    I have multiple old vehicles, including military vehicles that are VERY hard to start. Pyroil works much better than the more expensive stuff on these old engines that are slow to crank or have weak batteries! I stock up when it goes on sale. And read the instructions, particularly about not using on diesel engines that have a glow plug (KABOOM). And the upper cylinder lube is a plus for the engines that were designed to run on gasoline.

                    • Q:

                      " do not use in diesel engines with glow plugs "

                      Am I behind the times? Don't all diesel engines use glow plugs?

                        A:

                        One of the biggest differences between diesel engines that can start without glowplugs and those that need glowplugs is the pre combustion chamber. This is a small chamber in the head of the engine, the diesel is injected into this chamber and ignition starts there. Engines that can start without glowplugs do not have this extra chamber and are called direct injection engines. Some direct injection engines also have glowplugs to assist the starting. Smaller car engines are normally of the sort that do need glowplugs but big truck engines and some industrial engines used for waterpumps etc do not have glowplugs. On some engines without normal glowplugs there is one glowplug in the intake manifold together with an injector. While the starter is operated this glowplug and injector is energized. This injector does not work like a normal one but is an electric device. This set up supplies the engine with some preheated diesel in the air supply and helps the engine to start. You will find this on some tractors.
