Prized for their increased output and powerful capabilities, diesel engines can move large loads with the utmost ease! However, since these systems differ from their gasoline-fueled counterparts, they require special care and expert handling when it comes to servicing. Thankfully, the well-versed technicians here at Moran Automotive are up to the task! If your truck has a diesel engine, bring it by our service bay whenever it needs a tune-up or repairs.

What Is a Diesel Engine?

To begin, let’s quickly review what sets diesel engines apart from the type of systems that run on traditional gasoline. Although they both feature internal combustion, this process works a bit differently with a diesel system, in that they compress more air and operate at higher temperatures. Without getting too technical, diesel fuel itself is less refined and less volatile, allowing the equipment that runs on it to move heavy loads quite efficiently. Futhermore, to the extreme forces at work within the engine, diesel powertrains are typically stronger, heavier, and more durable than your typical engines.

Basic Maintenance

Generally, there are a few key tasks that you’ll want to stay up to date with in order to maximize your diesel engine’s potential. First, you should monitor its coolant, specifically for its acidity levels. Since acidic coolant can damage the engine itself, the radiator, and other related systems, it’s wise to have this fluid checked and flushed at regular intervals by our staff. In addition, to help keep your engine clean, make sure to have the fuel and air filters changed frequently—the former should be swapped out every 10,000 to 15,000 miles. Finally, just like with any other powertrain, have the oil changed every 5,000 miles or so.

Diesel-Specific Jobs

In addition to these preventative items, your diesel engine may require some specific attention every now and then. A few things to be on the lookout for include black exhaust, a hard start, and contaminated fuel. To expand on this last item, diesel fuel runs a higher risk of contamination due to its higher viscosity. As a result, soot, water, and other pollutants can more easily enter your fuel supply and cause serious issues. Thankfully, no matter the problem, our experts will find its cause and work tirelessly on a solution. If you think that you might need to visit us, feel free to request an appointment with our online scheduling tool.

Great and friendly service department! Waiting room has nice amenities like free popcorn, coffee, hot chocolate. Also two vending machines for pop and snacks. Showroom has quite a few sales people that are willing to answer questions if you have them or let you browse if you're just taking a look. Overall pretty good experience for coming in for an oil change even if there was a decent wait with an appointment.

Would definitely recommend!
