Self Study Program 351 – The common rail fuel injection system fitted in the 3.0L V6 TDI engine
VAG SSP 351. This self-study programme provides information on the way in which the piezo-controlled common rail fuel injection system fitted in the 3.0l V6 TDI engine functions.
The constant increase in requirements pertaining to low fuel consumption, low exhaust emissions and smooth running characteristics make extensive demands on a diesel engine fuel injection system.
These requirements can only be met by a fuel injection system which injects the fuel into the cylinders at high pressure, precisely controls injection and is able to structure the injection process by means of several pilot and secondary injection processes.
The technology implemented in the piezo-controlled common rail fuel injection system enables highly flexible adaptation of the injection process to the engine’s operating statuses.
A description of the 3.0l V6 TDI engine can be found in self-study programme 350 “The 3.0l V6 TDI engine”.
