Diesel Repair in Collingswood, New Jersey
We Provide A Variety Of Diesel Services For Trucks And Vans
Do you know what separates a diesel engine from a gasoline engine? While both are internal combustion engines (ICE), the way they operate is different. A diesel engine compresses air first and injects fuel second. This results in a higher compression ratio, leading to a better fuel economy than a gasoline engine. A gasoline engine mixes fuel with air first and then compresses it. An additional benefit of a diesel-powered vehicle is its higher torque rating, which means a higher towing and payload capacity. This is why diesel engines are found in trucks and vans. However, select passenger cars and SUVs also offer the option of a diesel engine. We thoroughly understand diesel engines here at Matthey Automotive, and our team undergoes training regularly to ensure efficiency and accuracy in our diesel repair services. Consult our auto shop diesel specialists serving Collingswood, New Jersey, for additional information regarding diesel engines and how we can help.
Common Diesel Engine Problems
Much like other components in a vehicle, things can go awry with a diesel engine. Low compression is an example of a diesel problem, which can be caused by a worn part in the engine or a complication with a piston, valve, or cylinder. Worn or faulty injectors, a fuel leak, worn rod bearings, a bad EGR valve, diesel particulate filter (DPF) clogging, and damaged liner seals are additional issues that can crop up that require diesel repair. How exactly do you know if there is a problem with your diesel engine? Trouble with starting your vehicle, a drop in performance and/or fuel economy, black or blue smoke produced from the exhaust, an increase in oil consumption, or strange sounds all point to a potential problem with your vehicle. In general, any unusual change in performance warrants a visit to our auto shop for an inspection, and if needed, diesel repair service. We have the diagnostic tools and the equipment to precisely troubleshoot the problem and provide repair, from EGR valve repair to DPF replacement.
