Diesel Repair Raleigh NC

Diesel engines are a common fixture in any vehicle that requires greater fuel efficiency (30%-35% greater fuel economy), longer engine longevity and higher torque for towing.  They operate differently than traditional gasoline engines and as such require different equipment, servicing and mechanical specialties to keep your diesel engine running efficiently.  The technicians at Dixon Fleet Services are trained in diesel engine repair and can diagnose the problem and fix it right the first time.  Common problems in diesel engines include:

  • Combustion Failure
  • Faulty fuel injectors
  • Glow plug failures
  • Worn cylinders
  • Damaged valves
  • Worn piston rings
  • Fuel combustion issues


How do you know if you have having problems with your diesel engine?  Some common indicators of an issue could be excessive emission smoke, lower RPM’s, loud noise coming from the engine, stuttering or problems starting the engine.   If you are having any of these issues, bring it by to the experienced staff at Dixon Fleet Services to diagnose and correct the problem.

Diesel Engine Maintenance Raleigh NC

Due to the complexity of diesel engines, they require a set maintenance schedule to keep them running at peak performance.   Much like a car, they require oil changes, air filter replacements, fuel filters, etc.  Without regular service, your diesel engine can run poorly and inefficiently, stutter, stall or even fail.  Proper maintenance is the key to preventing catastrophic engine failure.  Diesel engines need regular oil changes, fuel injector maintenance, fuel filter replacement and other regular servicing.  The experienced staff at Dixon Fleet Services knows what your equipment needs and can help you maintain your diesel engine so that it runs right.
