Diesel Truck Repair Rancho Cordova:

Diesel Truck Repair

The lifespan of your truck's diesel engine is dependent on sticking to regular scheduled maintenance needs. You expect your diesel mechanic to have the skills, tools and knowledge specific to your diesel engine. We know how to fix your Powerstroke, Cummins, Duramax and other brands of diesel motors!

Because diesel-powered trucks are much heavier than gas powered trucks, their heavy-duty brakes need to be larger and stronger. Stopping power needs to be greater and that's why it's important that your truck's brakes are in good working order. Changing the brake pads on time is not just a matter of safety but will also save you money by reducing heat buildup, warping, and metal-to-metal contact on the rotors, which will make them to last longer and stop faster.

Diesel engines don't need ignition tune-ups and tend to last longer without major repairs than gasoline engines, but they do require regular maintenance, mostly in the form of frequent oil and filter changes. The urea injection systems that reduce nitrogen oxide emissions also need refilling, and this is commonly done as part of regularly scheduled maintenance.

Engine repairs are also more complex on a diesel truck, requiring specialized tools and training to work on the complete drivetrain. Newer systems like the selective catalyst reduction (SCR) that use DEF fluid, and even the older and still used diesel particulate filter (DPF), need special knowledge and tools to accurately diagnose and repair. Complex systems in diesel trucks are highly dependent on each other. If one component system has a issue, it can affect the way another system functions even though it may seem to be completely unrelated. Once one problem is fixed, an experienced technician will know to check other interdependent systems to make sure a new problem doesn't show up elsewhere.

Our goal is to provide an affordable dealer alternative, from simple maintenance to a complete diesel engine overhaul.
