Our mobile truck mechanics have experience working with all kinds of diesel engine repair and maintenance. We have the tools to properly diagnose and repair any engine problem that puts your truck out of commission.
Diesel engines are extremely reliable, but regular maintenance and repairs are needed if you want to keep your truck in top shape. Oil changes must be done on schedule and filters have to be cleaned or replaced at the proper intervals.
Since diesel engines don’t have electric engine components like spark plugs, wires, and ignition coils, there are fewer parts to maintain. But you still need to keep a regular maintenance schedule to avoid costly repairs down the road.
We can handle problems like fuel delivery issues, leaking gaskets and hoses, engine cooling problems, dirty fuel injectors, and hard starting. When you have a diesel engine failure, it’s important to have the right person working for you.
If your engine gets too hot, your cooling system needs to be inspected for leaks or faulty parts. Radiator leaks blockages, worn belts or even worn tires can put undue load on the engine and cause it to overheat. Cooling fans often malfunction because of faulty motors, fuses or relays. Even the excessive summer heat can wear heavily on your truck’s cooling system.
Oil leaks are also a sign that something needs to be repaired. It can be something simple like a new bolt or drain seal, or it could require more significant repairs. If these parts are in poor condition, they’ll put excessive strain on the engine, which can quickly lead to major engine damage.
When your engine won’t start or starts hard, that’s another clue something is off. Battery and starter problems can disable a semi truck very quickly, but the repairs are usually not difficult and can be repaired in a jiffy.
If your truck smokes excessively under normal conditions, that’s a sign something internal needs to be fixed. Depending on what color the smoke is will determine if the problem is related to fuel injector problems, worn piston rings or cylinders or a loss of compression or issues with engine timing.
