Diesel Maintenance and Repair
Posted January 24, 2012
Truckers have traditionally preferred diesels for their reliable, tough, easy-to-maintain traits that accompany them—and that’s why many other car buyers have gone for them, too. Aurora Diesel are designed so the owner of the vehicle can easily and cheaply maintain the vehicle themselves without having to spend too much time or money at your Aurora Diesel repair shop.
However, having a diesel engine doesn’t mean that you get to skip preventative maintenance altogether—there are still maintenance concerns to take care of just like any other vehicle!
Probably the most significant thing you can do to prolong the life of your diesel engine is to have the oil and filter changed frequently. With a regular gas engine, delaying oil and filter changes can lead to a prematurely aged engine. But when it comes to a diesel engine, delaying oil and filter changes can lead to an engine that prematurely dies—and the price tag on a new engine isn’t something you want to deal with.
It’s the same rule for a diesel’s fuel filters. A dirty one can not only impair you vehicle’s performance, but can lead to dirty fuel which can log a diesel’s fuel injection system, which can lead to a very expensive repair.
Another aspect of diesel preventative maintenance are the urea injection systems that reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. This should be re-filled every time you take your vehicle in for a maintenance check.
So stop by or call your reliable Aurora Diesel Repair shop and have an ASE-Certified technician look over your diesel today!
