Repairs Your Diesel Might Need

While diesels are in some ways different than gasoline-powered engines, they still bear many similarities. You can still get the same great service and repair when you entrust your vehicle to our professional technicians. For instance, it’s important to take care of routine preventive maintenance services such as oil changes. An adequate amount of clean engine oil is vital to getting the best performance and longevity from your vehicle. Removing and replacing oxidized oil from a vehicle that has been sitting is a typical diesel engine repair. Also, because diesel fuel combusts at a different temperature than gas, your engine uses the glow plug. If this is aging or worn, you’ll need a replacement to ensure your auto’s ability to start. Other common diesel repairs include fuel injector replacement and the exchange of lead acid batteries. One supplies a steady fuel supply to the chambers/cylinders, while the other provides the power needed to start and run auxiliary components. Another fix that might be needed is a change of bearings.
