Why my Tata Indigo eCS diesel motor is noisy?

Hello Kanishk !!

This is quite normal, the diesel motor is noisy as compared to the Petrol engine. This is because Petrol engines have spark plugs in the cylinders which initiate combustion, but the diesel engines are ignited by compression, without any external source of spark plugs. Hence the combustion in diesel engines more noisy, and the diesel engine run at a higher compression ratios (15:1 to 20:1) which is very much higher than the Petrol engine. Diesel engines are usually more heavy and built stronger than gasolines.

Sometime there might be a noise form the engine. This is because Petrol engines have spark plugs in the cylinders which initiate combustion, but the diesel engines are ignited by compression, without any external source of spark plugs. It can be improved and reduced by visiting the service centers.
