Mission Statement & Intention
The Diesel Technician Society web site is a place for industry professionals,specifically Ford diesel and truck technicians, to freely share information and ideas from the perspective of technicians. The emphasis is on helping each other with diagnostic assistance, encouragement and the sharing of information that will ultimately help us all become better at what we do.
This is a rich environment with over 10 years of posts, multimedia and documents that can be searched and reviewed making it your number one choice if you are a Ford dealership technician who works on trucks and diesel engines. Our members include diesel techs, instructors, Ford engineers (who wont admit they linger) and a few select individuals from the industry. What makes the DTS better is that all of this information is available, it DOES NOT DISAPPEAR like it does in the Ford Message Boards and it's not one single stream or random posts like you will find in social media like Facebook groups. Come join us today!
About DTS Forum Membership THE DTS FORUMS ARE NOT OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. The DTS Forums are for Ford dealer and Ford Corporate employees and International dealer employees ONLY! While the web site is open to the general public, the forums are restricted to the use of Ford and International service technicians, dealer personnel and manufacturing employees array(Ford Motor Company or International and their suppliers) All Forum registrations are screened and are subject to approval before any account is active. You may be contacted for additional information or clarification. Yes, we are serious. If you cannot be responsible enough to provide this simple information that is required to validate who you are your registration cannot be verified and it will be declined. We don't think that it is too much to ask.
Did You Know?Intercoolers increase the efficiency of the induction system by reducing induction air heat created by the supercharger or turbocharger and promoting more thorough combustion. This removes the heat of compression (i.e., the temperature rise) that occurs in any gas when its pressure is raised or its unit mass per unit volume (density) is increased. Reducing the temperature makes a more dense intake charge into the engine, as a result of forced induction. The lowering of the intake charge air temperature also eliminates the danger of pre-detonation (knock) of the fuel/air charge prior to timed spark ignition. This preserves the benefits of more fuel/air burn per engine cycle, increasing the power output of the engine.
