Are you thinking of purchasing a diesel vehicle? Did you know that diesel engines are vastly different from gasoline engines? Yes, in fact, diesel mechanics must go through years of education and training to understand the complexity of how these powerful engines work. If you own a diesel vehicle already or are thinking of purchasing one in the near future, the team at Auto Specialty of Lafayette, Inc. wants you to know we are ready to expertly service your diesel vehicle whenever the need arises.
1. Certified Mechanics
Each of our diesel mechanics undergoes extensive education and certification before becoming a part of the Auto Specialty team. Diesel engines are more complex than standard engines and require years of education and on-the-job training in order to be able to accurately rebuild or repair them. The diesel mechanics on staff follow these steps in order to become a certified diesel mechanic:
- Receive a high school diploma
- Attend a service technology program that specializes in diesel engine repair
- Receive on average three to four years of training as journey-level technicians
- Become certified through The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)
2. Routine Maintenance
While our team understands the intricate parts of a diesel engine, both foreign and domestic, they can also take care of all routine maintenance required for diesel engines, including:
- Oil changes
- Replace air and fuel filters
- Change fuel additive
- Test and repair electrical systems
- Diagnose engine warning lights
3. Knowledge of Diesel Engines
Our highly-trained diesel mechanics can also rebuild and repair the many elaborate and complicated systems of a diesel engine. One such example is the fuel injector. This part requires a detailed understanding of a diesel engine in order to locate and then replace or repair the injector. Knowing how a diesel engine runs, especially on different makes and models of vehicles, makes all the difference in the care and expertise taken to repair your diesel vehicle.
