Vehicle owners across the world are switching to diesel fuel for many reasons. Although gas prices may be higher, diesel gas allows drivers to gain better gas mileage. As popularity rises with the demand for diesel trucks and SUVS, Aposhian Garage is seeing more customers for diesel vehicle routine maintenance and repair. Here are the most important tips to keeping your diesel vehicle in tip-top shape for the road ahead.
- Clean your engine- Diesel engines require more frequent cleaning due to collected dirt and grime. Versus gas powered vehicles, diesel engines can travel longer distances without needing to be serviced (this can cause the engine to become dirtier, quicker). When dirty, the lifespan of the engine can be shortened, and gas mileage will not be as great. It is extremely important to have routine maintenance performed on your diesel vehicle to obtain the greatest benefits and the longest life. Aposhian Garage specializes in diesel fuel engines, making us one of the few specialized diesel mechanics in the Salt Lake City, UT area.
- Check and change air filters- During routine maintenance checks, our mechanics check and change air filters that are dirty. A dirty air filter can cause the diesel engine to choke, which can not only cause more fuel usage, but can also cause your vehicle to eventually break down.
- Replenish coolant for the radiator- Because diesel engines typically run longer than gas powered engines, the vehicles radiator can overheat quickly, causing break downs and heat-related issues. Coolant enables the radiator to stay cool and needs to be re-filled during routine maintenance checks.
- Replace the fuel filters- Much like the air filter, fuel filters can become dirty, which can cause other parts of the vehicle to fail or work improperly. Fuel filters will be checked and recommended change when necessary.
Diesel powered vehicle owners can do their part in keeping their vehicle healthy by scheduling routine maintenance appointments where the above tasks will be completed. Aposhian Garage encourages routine maintenance checks to enable your vehicle to run its best and have a longer life.
