Common Problems and How to Fix Them
Once the problem has been diagnosed, your vehicle will need to be serviced. The following are common repairs that are often performed on malfunctioning diesel automobiles:
- Charging systems
- Glow plugs
- High pressure pumps
- Hydro boost systems
- Air intake systems
- EGR Systems
Engine Replacement: We will help find and install the proper engine replacement so that your vehicle is functioning properly once more.
Injection System Repairs: Unlike gasoline systems, diesel engines inject fuel into the cylinder instead of outside of it. Because they are required to withstand pressure and heat while doing so, the injection system often encounters problems that require it to be repaired or replaced. We can help fix your injection system quickly and affordably.
Electrical Repairs: Diesel vehicles have complex electrical systems that sometimes malfunction. Fortunately, we have the tools to help diagnose and repair any electrical problems you may have with your automobile.
Common Rail Injection Repairs: This unique system has contributed to diesels becoming the efficient, sporty, and powerful engines that they are. We can repair or replace your Common Rail Injection system so that it accurately transfers the proper amount of fuel.
Transmission and Clutch Services: We recommend that you have your transmission serviced frequently in order to avoid more serious and costly problems in the future. We can provide any needed repairs or replacements on your transmission and clutch.
Performance Upgrades: If you are concerned about how well your vehicle drives or performs on an overall basis, we can provide the proper diagnostics and upgrades so your car drives smoothly once again.
