About Our Diesel Engine Repair Services

Important Heavy-Duty Engine Components

Glow Plugs

Contrary to popular belief, glow plugs do not perform the same function as spark plugs. Rather than providing a spark, glow plugs heat your engine to enhance combustion. In theory, depending on the temperature of your engine and the climate of where you are, you may not even need glow plugs to start your truck. Over time, glow plugs fail and require replacement. Most manufacturers recommend changing glow plugs every 100 thousand miles. 

Diesel Fuel Filters

Most diesel engines have two fuel filters that are responsible for removing impurities from your fuel. Without them, your fuel injectors would get clogged and fail to provide your engine with a reliable flow of fuel. These fuel filters need to be changed during every oil change. The lifecycle of each filter generally lines up with the lifecycle of heavy-duty engine oil.
