Although diesel engine systems require a certain level of service beyond what you may find with a regular gasoline engine, they typically do not require regular service or maintenance until your car or truck reaches the 500,000-mile point. Ultimately, this saves you money on repairs and replacements and allows for greater fuel economy in the long run.
Whether it’s time to schedule routine maintenance for your diesel engine, or you’ve started experiencing issues with drivability, excessive noise, or smoke, you can count on the team at Colony Tire & Service for quality, affordable diesel engine service.
Below are the main indicators of diesel engine problems, and the services our auto mechanics at locations throughout NC, SC, and VA provide to resolve them:
If your vehicle has less than 500,000-miles on it, you shouldn’t be having any major issues with drivability or starting. Drivability or hard start issues may indicate a faulty glow plug or turbocharger, as well as low cranking speeds or flat batteries. No matter what the issue is, we’ll be happy to diagnose any issues and replace or repair any faulty, defective, or worn-out parts.
Although smoke emissions are common with diesel engines, excessive smoke could signal a more significant issue with your diesel engine system. With our excessive smoke diagnosis, we’ll pinpoint the root of the problem and perform any repairs that may need to be done to correct the issue.
Much like smoke emissions, a certain level of noise can be expected with any diesel engine. Excessive noise is usually a good sign that your engine is experiencing less-than-typical problems — ones that may end up costing you down the road, if not addressed as quickly as possible. If you’re having a problem with excessive noise, let us inspect your diesel engine today to prevent any problems from costing you hundreds or thousands of dollars.
We also offer turbocharger repairs and replacement, as well as glow plug service and replacement. Contact your local Colony Tire & Service car care center today!
