Diesel Engines

Diesel engines are compression-ignition engines, as opposed to spark-ignition. The heat generated from the compression ignites the mixture of air/fuel in cylinders. Compression ignition engines burn fuel evenly, allowing them to have very good fuel mileage while producing more power for the amount of fuel used compared to gasoline engines.

Our certified experts will carry out your routine maintenance to ensure your diesel engine runs at it’s maximum performance.

Does Your Diesel Need a Service?

Are you not sure if your diesel engine needs a service? We have compiled a list of warning signs that you should keep an eye out for to ensure the proper maintenance of your diesel.
  • Increased consumption of oil
  • Difficulty starting the engine
  • Turbocharger failure
  • Blue smoke coming from the exhaust
  • Engine oil in the cooling system
  • Overheating

If you notice your diesel engine losing power and efficiency, you should address the issues sooner than later. If you delay diesel engine repair service, it can lead to more expensive repairs down the road. The longer you wait, the worse the problem will get, and it could even result in engine failure.

If you are experiencing any of the issues listed above or would like to have your vehicle inspected, use the form below to book your diesel car or truck service.

    Diesel Engine Repair Options

    Depending on the severity of the problem, diesel engine repairs can range from simple and inexpensive fixes to complex and costly repairs. Some of the most common repair options include:

    • Engine tune-up: An engine tune-up involves replacing worn out parts, such as spark plugs and air filters, and making adjustments to the engine’s systems to restore its performance.

    • Engine rebuild: An engine rebuild involves disassembling the engine and replacing worn out components, such as cylinder liners and pistons, to restore its performance.

    • Engine replacement: In some cases, the best option for repairing a diesel engine may be to replace it with a new or refurbished engine.

    Preventive Measures to Maintain Diesel Engine Performance

    In addition to regular repairs, there are several preventive measures that vehicle owners and operators can take to maintain the performance and longevity of their diesel engines. Some of the most effective preventive measures include:

    • Regular maintenance: Regular maintenance, such as oil changes, air filter replacements, and coolant flushes, can help to prevent problems and maintain the performance of the engine.

    • Proper use: Proper use of the vehicle, such as avoiding overloading, excessive idling, and aggressive driving, can help to prevent problems and extend the life of the engine.
