Diesel Engine Service Timeline

Depending on the model and age of your vehicle, your diesel engine should be serviced at least once a year or roughly every 5,000 miles. Check your Owner’s Manual for a specific timeline or just stop by and let our technicians take a look. Some of the tasks they may recommend include changing the lubricating oil, changing the air and fuel filter, bleeding the fuel system, and draining the water separators. Many pickup trucks, such as the Ford F-150 and Super Duty models come available with a diesel engine for their high torque output and durability. However, that durability does not meant that you can neglect routine maintenance – the fuel system needs to be closely monitored to avoid the chance of major damage.

Specialized Appointments

Our Service Department is ready to treat your vehicle’s diesel engine with the care that it deserves. Coolant is a crucial element to ensure that towing and hauling loads doesn’t overheat the engine. We’ll make sure that there is the proper level of coolant and that is fresh and free from harmful acid that can develop over time. They’ll also take a close look for any signs of dirt or debris in the fuel, oil, and check the condition of the appropriate filters. If you know that your vehicle is experiencing issues or your check engine light is on, our mechanics will use their knowledge and our diagnostic tools to assess the cause right away.

We were having trouble with one of our trucks and wanted to replace it with a good used truck. My son went up to delonge and met with john delong to see if he could help us out. He came thru with a nice F250 that worked just perfect for us. It was nice to work with someone who listened to what we needed and filled our needs quickly and under our budget that we quoted we wanted to spend. We will gladlyrecommend him to anyone we know that's looking to buy a vehicle . Bill Abraham

I worked with Doug Scribner at this dealership. I would recommend Doug to anyone looking for a vehicle without the high pressure sales tactics you usually get. He is a straight shooter and this is a no pressure dealership. No sharks around the showroom. I only met with the finance guy to close the deal. Brenda Lawless answered my after hours inquiry immediately and messaged me early next business day. I drove 2 hours from a small town and got the small town customer service I am accustomed to. To you city and suburban guys: find the vehicle your interested in, make the trip, and experience how car buying should be. You won't be disappointed.
