Signs of Diesel Engine Problems
As a vehicle owner with a diesel engine, you know how it’s supposed to run. If you come across a sound, smell, or sensation that doesn’t seem right, count on Coast to Coast to run the proper diagnostics to troubleshoot the issue. One of the most common signs of an engine problem is the accumulation of oil sludge, consisting of grime, dust/debris, coolants, or wasted oil. Oil sludge signifies improper lubrication and hindrance of performance, leading to a loss in power and increased fuel consumption. Metal shavings in your oil are a tell-tale sign of friction between parts due to lack of lubrication, which warrants prompt service; if the shavings are carried throughout the engine, they can damage other components that quickly add up to diesel repair costs. Have you noticed an increase in oil or coolant consumption? Is there excessive exhaust smoke? Do you hear a knocking sound from the engine? As soon as you experience a sign of distress from your diesel engine, it’s always best to act fast and with caution. If you’re ever unsure of the next step after a strange noise or high-temperature reading, give us a call—our diesel repair experts are always happy to help.
