1. The diesel set could not be started
    - To start up the engine it has to have the correct rpm, good compression force and fuel with good atomization. Besides, it required a specific temperature to ignite the atomized fuel.
    - We have to inspect the wiring first when the diesel set doesn’t start. When there is no reaction on the starter motor after pressing the start button, it will mean there is a short circuit or improper connection with the wiring. If there are crashing in between the starter bearing and the flywheel, it will suggest that the bearings are not in synchronized position, we should adjust the bearing on the flywheel. If the starter motor is weak in the speed then it will mean the battery is not in good charge.
    - The unit still can’t be started even if the starter motor is strong with the right rpm, but there is no sound from the nozzle and no smoke coming from the exhaust pipe, this will suggest there is problem with the fuel system. The engine die down after the unit started for a while, it will suggest there is air or water in the fuel.
    - The starter motor reaches the designated rpm even with sound on the nozzle but still could not be started. In addition, there is sound of leakage, we should shut down the unit. Instead we can use the screwdriver to move the flywheel and if there is weak resistance from the flywheel and with no rebound, this will mean the compression force is not sufficient.
    - The diesel engine could not be started when under very low ambient temperature, the machine has been idle too long, too thick with the lubricating oil which hamper the movement of the components, the gap in between the piston and the cylinder too big or insufficient compression force. Will suggest using hot water or steam to preheat the unit before starting the engine again.


2. Insufficient power
3. Automatic shut down
4. High level engine oil in the oil pan.
5. Increase in fuel consumption
6. Lower or no fuel pressure
7. Too big the gap in between the piston and the rod bushing
8. The space in the connecting rod bearing is too big or broken
9. Broken crankshaft
