compression ignition engine

In the compression ignition engine or diesel engine, only fresh air enters the cylinder, which is compressed to a very high pressure and temperature, which could go up to 1000°F (538°C). The diesel is then injected or sprayed into the engine combustion chamber. This spray contains very fine and tiny particles of diesel in an atomised form. The hot air or heat of compression ignites the fuel and generates the power stroke.
