Re: How Do You "Fog" a Diesel Engine

I do it quite regularly. Exclude the oxygen and combustion can't take place, it's simple.

Re: How Do You "Fog" a Diesel Engine

The only way I have tried to fog the diesel is to crank it maybe 1 second, just barely...while spraying. Then repeating. (two people) Good point on the water in the muffler, never thought of that being possibly corrosive.
removing injectors sounds like way to do it good, but a PITA.

Re: How Do You "Fog" a Diesel Engine

If you're not excluding the oxygen then you're doing it wrong.
