    Common rail direct injection is an intelligent way of controlling a diesel engine with use of modern computer systems.Common Rail direct injection helps to improve the power, performance and reduce harmful emissions from a diesel engine. Conventional Diesel Engines (non-CRDI engines) are sluggish, noisy and sensor in performance compared to a CRDI engine.
    Common Rail Nozzle or Common Rail Injector Valve is also sometimes referred to by many similar or different names. Some brands use name CRDe / DICOR / Turbojet / DDIS / TDI etc. All these systems work on same principles with Common Rail Injector slight variations and enhancements here and there.
    Common rail direct injection system uses Common Rail Shim & Gasket kit which is like one single rail or fuel channel which contains diesel compresses at high pressure. This is a called a common rail because there is one single pump which compresses the diesel and one single rail which contains that compressed fuel. In conventional diesel engines, there will be as many pumps and fuel rails as there are cylinders.
