Diesel Engine Maintenance

Better fuel economy, durability, and power are a few of the reasons some people prefer to buy diesel engine vehicles.


Why Diesel Engine Maintenance is Important?:


Without regular maintenance, your fuel injection system will clog up over time.

Servicing your vehicle plays an important part in maintaining that ‘new’ condition. It’s one of your biggest investments and maintenance ensures a healthy life for your vehicle.

Giving your engine a little extra TLC can extend its life and ensures a smooth journey.

Since it’s one of the most important factors in vehicle care we’ve provided you with the why and how on keeping your Isuzu bakkie in tip-top shape:

Because a diesel engine requires higher pressure for combustion, it needs a lot more maintenance. Since there aren’t any spark plugs, the engine gets really hot. This can cause problems in the long run, if not properly maintained.

Symptoms of a Problematic Diesel Engine:


Seeing excessive smoke, increased fuel consumption and lagging performance are signs of a faulty or worn-out engine.

It can be timely and costly to replace large parts due to lack of maintenance. Servicing regularly will decrease the chances of needing to do this. This will also cost a lot less in the long-run.

However, a lot of these problems can be a result of a contaminant in your diesel engine. This is why services at regular intervals help because these things will be checked.


What You Should Do?:


To address these symptoms you’ll need to take your Isuzu bakkie to your nearest Isuzu workshop. Here an Isuzu mechanic will run diagnostics to identify the fault that needs to be addressed.

Running the diagnostic will allow him to find and repair the fault with the correct Isuzu parts.
