Certified Diesel Mechanics
Auto Specialty is one of the few auto repair shops in the Lafayette area to provide both petrol and diesel auto repair. As certified diesel mechanics, our professionals understand the intricacies of each engine and the associated parts: fuel injectors, fuel injector pumps, turbos, fuel lines, and glow plugs.
Diesel Routine MaintenanceIn addition to understanding the parts of your diesel engine, our mechanics also perform a routine check for the following:
- Oil Change
- Air Filter
- Fuel Filter
- Fuel Additive (in colder months)
- Electrical System Tests
- Engine Warning Lights
As the most complex part of a diesel engine, the fuel injector requires expertise to repair, remove, or replace. Frequently, fuel injectors are located in different places when compared to other engines. This can make locating and replacing a diesel fuel injector more difficult and time-consuming. Most imported and domestic diesel-engine vehicles also require fuel injectors and parts that are specifically manufactured for their respective make and model. Comprehensive understanding of how the engine works is the key to repairing it correctly.
Benefits of a Diesel Engine
Diesel engines have numerous benefits over standard gasoline engines. Unlike their gasoline-counterparts, they burn fuel more slowly, resulting in better gas mileage and a longer lasting engine. On average, diesel engines last several years longer than a standard engine that runs off gasoline, and some have even been known to last over 300,000 miles. Of course, Auto Specialty recommends that you perform routine truck and car maintenance to extend the life of your vehicle, and we can take care of it all here in Lafayette, IN.
