Founded on Quality, Integrity & Experience

After some consideration, you may have decided to purchase a diesel car or truck. But your question now is how do you take care of your diesel vehicle? It is important that you find a certified diesel mechanic that is qualified to answer your questions and perform the needed auto repair services.

Although diesel engines aren’t quite as complicated as gasoline-powered engines, they do require a little bit more “know-how” so it is important that you find a certified diesel mechanic who is knowledgeable in a variety of diesel engines. Today’s diesel engines do require more maintenance than in years past because of higher emissions standards, increased horsepower, torque, and advanced technology built into most vehicles.

What is the main difference between diesel and gas engines? Simply stated, diesel engines use compression in the combustion chamber to ignite the fuel while gas engines use a spark. That means that diesel engines don’t require ignition tune-ups, plus they tend to run longer without major repairs than gas engines.

So what can a diesel mechanic do for you? Here are some of the specialized diesel auto repair services that will be required:

  • Transmission and clutch
  • Diesel Injector
  • Common Rail Injection Systems
  • Injection Pumps
  • Electrical Systems
  • Engine replacement/overhaul
  • Diagnostics and upgrades

The maintenance schedule for your diesel vehicle can be found in your owner’s manual. The recommended service period is about every 3,000 miles or six months, whichever comes first. Of course, this service interval will depend on the make and model of your vehicle, as well as on how many miles you drive and on the kind of miles you drive.

Here are several issues a certified diesel mechanic can take care of for you:

  • Running poorly when the engine is cold
  • Hard starts and extended cranking
  • Poor performance
  • DEF fluid in your fuel tank
  • Decreased fuel economy
  • Off less than 48 volts
  • White smoke is coming from the exhaust pipe
  • Unexplained coolant loss
  • EGR issues
  • Engine oil temperatures 15°F hotter than coolant temperatures
  • Engine oil present within the engine cooling system
  • Leaking coolant from degas bottle
  • Overheating
  • Overheating while driving but not when idling at low RPM
