Routine Maintenance for Diesel Engines
Whether a diesel vehicle is used for pushing, pulling or carrying loads, diesel engine performance is best achieved with regular maintenance. Routine care will make any enhancement to a diesel vehicle more effective and efficient, as well as increase the life of the engine. So, for optimal diesel performance, check…
Air Filters: Air filters should be regularly inspected and changed as-needed. The air filter collects debris and dirt, and when not replaced can lead to engine damage and impact diesel engine performance.
Oil: Consult with our diesel performance technicians on how often your vehicle needs an oil change. Usually, we recommend an oil change around every 5K miles.
Fuel Filter: Every 10 to 15K miles a routine maintenance visit should be scheduled with a diesel performance technician, where both primary and secondary fuel filters should be replaced.
For a Clean Engine: A clean engine is important for preservation and performance. Allowing dirt and grime to rest on a diesel engine’s components will decrease the life of a vehicle. Check for clean fuel, clean oil and clean air.

Committing to caring for a diesel engine is committing to extend the life of your investment. Leave it to our professionals to keep your diesel running in prestine condition.
What is a Turbo Charger?
An engine is designed to burn a fuel-air mixture to produce mechanical energy. The mechanical energy then moves pistons up and down to create the rotary motion that turns the wheels of a vehicle. The more mechanical energy, the more power the engine can produce.
A significant difference between a turbocharged diesel engine and a traditional naturally aspirated gasoline engine is that the air entering a diesel engine is compressed before the fuel is injected. This is where the turbocharger is critical to the power output and efficiency of the diesel engine. It is the job of the turbocharger to compress more air flowing into the engine's cylinder. When air is compressed the oxygen molecules are packed closer together.
This increase in air means that more fuel can be added for the same size naturally aspirated engine. This generates increased mechanical power and overall efficiency improvement of the combustion process. Therefore, the engine size can be reduced for a turbocharged engine leading to better packaging, weight saving benefits and overall improved fuel economy.
