Maintenance of your diesel engine equipped vehicle is important to ensure you are getting the best performance. Diesel engines are tough and durable but only when they are regularly serviced. Let Max Performance ensure you’re getting the most of your diesel truck or car.
No matter how much you think you know about diesel engines, it is always best to contact a knowledgeable professional in the diesel engine repair and servicing industry. You can feel confident that our mechanics are capable of working on a broad range of diesel engines, including Powerstroke, DuraMax, and Cummings.
Diesel Engine Maintenance
Ignition tune-ups are not necessary for this type of engine. However, a Fuel Filter Service and Air Filter Service will keep it in good working order. Everything should be completed according to a schedule to ensure your engine performs well and lasts.
Otherwise known as a radiator flush, this servicing procedure of the cooling system will prevent corrosion from building up. Additionally, coolant flushes will prevent future problems. Scale deposits and contaminants will be removed with proper flushing, thus increasing the life of your cooling system.
DPF (Diesel Particulate Filters)
When soot or exhaust gas builds up in the engine, these foreign bodies can affect the engine and its overall performance. Soot or dirt buildup can be removed with regular cleaning. Particulate matter can cause bacteria to spread when left to fester, so do make the effort to hire an auto mechanic to clean the DPF.
While some owners will be on the hunt for a heavy duty vehicle that looks good, is comfortable, and is fuel-efficient, someone else may be more concerned about power and torque. If you have a need for speed or simply want to monitor the potential of your drive, contact us to install performance chips.
Tuners and Programmers
Unlock the true potential with a diesel tuner or programmer. With a tuner, you can often get better performance, power while gaining fuel efficiency. A properly programmed tuner means less downshifting, better combustion, and more power from lower RPM’s.
These service(s) can be organized every couple of months if you get in touch with us. From tuners and programmers to the repair, service and maintenance, our Kelowna diesel mechanics will not disappoint.
If you were to sell your vehicle on in the future, it would be worth more with a full truck repair and servicing record. Even if something goes bad (which is somewhat inevitable after so many years), the fact that the details will be noted down indicates honesty. Furthermore, that truck service record will prove how well the vehicle has been looked after.
