How To Prevent Diesel Fuel Gelling In The Winter

Keep Your Fuel System Flowing In the Cold Months With Winter approaching and temperatures beginning to drop, it’s time to start thinking about how to keep your diesel fuel flowing well through the Winter months. If proper precautions are taken, you can prevent issues that may occur when diesel fuel is left cold and alone. What Happens to Diesel Fuel in Cold Temperatures? When anything begins to cool, the molecules start to slow down, eventually freezing. For a quick science refresher, when water reaches 32 degrees Fahrenheit (or 0 degrees Celsius) […]

    New Dirt Released on the 2017 Duramax 6.6L L5P V-8 Turbo Diesel Engine

New Dirt Released on the 2017 Duramax 6.6L L5P V-8 Turbo Diesel Engine

New information is starting to trickle in on the redesigned Duramax 6.6L L5P V-8 turbo-diesel for the 2017 GMC Sierra and Chevy Silverado HDs. As we wrote on our blog this past summer, we’ve been watching the 2017 models closely, waiting to see just who will unveil the biggest and baddest diesel in 2017. GMC/Chevy had kept details about the 2017 Duramax close to the chest, until recently when it was officially announced the next-gen engine more horsepower and torque than ever, with SAE-certified 445 horsepower (332 kW) and 910 lb.-ft.

Return Diesel Injector Cores, Save Money on New Injectors

Customers often ask, why do you require core returns on new injectors? Well, for one, it allows us to offer substantially better pricing on the new injectors you order from InjectorsDirect.com. Unlike some injector shops, we do our best to get you new injectors for the best prices around, which is made possible by getting your old injectors back (so we can recondition them for future customers). Plus, what are you going to do with those old injectors anyway? Use them as paperweights? Better yet, fishing weights? Issue being, getting $100 a pop […]

Looking Ahead to 2017 Diesel Truck Models

Summer’s here, which means we’ve reached the midpoint of the year and can start looking ahead to the 2017 diesel truck models. And while it’s tough to sort fact from rumor at this stage, it looks like the 2017 line of diesel trucks will pack more power than ever. TheTopSpeed.com is even going as far as to suggest that the new 2017 Ford Super Duty 6.7L V8 PowerStroke Turbo Diesel will have more than 500 horsepower and, get this, 1,000 pound-feet of torque. The 1,000 pound-feet of torque, at least coming from the factory, would have been unfathomable a few […]

U.S.-Based Injectors Direct has the Diesel Injectors You Need in a Hurry

The Fourth of July is nearly here, which means we’ll finally get a three-day weekend to spend some quality time with those we love: OUR TRUCKS. OK, that’s tongue in cheek, but what’s more American than working on your  truck over Independence Day weekend? Now that we have some time to spend in the garage, this weekend or during a summer vacation, think about what your diesel truck needs to get through the summer heat. How has your engine been running? Has your truck been blowing white smoke, or struggling through reduced […]

Buying Single Diesel Injectors, or a Full Set?

One of the biggest dilemmas our customers are faced with when they discover a failing injector is if they should replace the one or replace the full set. In our experience, when it comes to replacing injectors on the diesel engines, it’s a lot like changing out your headlight bulbs. When one headlight goes out, it’s only a matter of time before the other goes out. Here are some reasons why you might consider changing out multiple injectors rather than just the one: • Same amount of work: In most cases, it isn’t […]

Diesel Industry Year in Review

What a year it’s been for the diesel industry. First, we learned about all of the new diesels for Toyota, Nissan, Chevy and GMC set to flood the market, then the industry received a black eye when the VW Emissions scandal broke. But all in all 2015 has been a big year for the diesel industry. Here’s a look back at some of the notable news we mentioned on the InjectorsDirect.com blog: VW Emissions Scandal The VW emissions scandal broke this fall, and it […]

What You Need to Know About Duramax Balance Rates

The Duramax has proven to be a reliable engine since its introduction back in 2001. Generally, most owners and service techs are well aware of the importance of keeping a clean fuel system by running clean, high quality fuel, lubricity additives, and routine fuel filter changes along with all other required maintenance. When problems do arise from the fuel system, the first method of diagnosis is often a balance rate test. There are a lot of questions we get about balance rates and we would like to help clarify what they do […]

Does White Smoke Mean Injector Problems?

We’ve heard of rollin’ coal, but rollin’ snow? Not a good sign. Blowing white smoke is a red flag for your diesel engine, yet we see this happen all the time to our customers. In many cases, white smoke emanating from the tailpipe (often at idle once the engine reached operating temperature) typically means a worn out injector. Now this isn’t always the case, but after some trouble shooting we’re usually the go-to shop when diesel drivers need refurbished, rebuilt, or new […]

What the VW Emissions Scandal Means for the Diesel Industry

As expected, the fallout from the VW emissions cheating scandal is starting to have ripple effects through the diesel industry. Last week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a letter to all automotive manufacturers warning them of prolonged and more rigorous testing protocols. “EPA may test or require testing on any vehicle at a designated location, using driving cycles and conditions that may reasonably be expected to be encountered in normal operation and use, for the purposes of investigating a potential defeat device,” the […]

Does Running Out of Diesel Damage Injectors?

It seems like I’m spending more and more time in the truck these days, and on long road trips I always wince when the fuel light comes on more than 20 miles from the next fueling station. As we get more comfortable with our trucks, and just how far they can run on fumes, we tend to test their fuel range more and more until we find a […]

New Diesels for Toyota, Nissan, Chevy, GMC set to Flood the Market

Is it just us, or is everyone turning to diesel these days? Here in the U.S., Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon are going diesel, equipping 2016 models with 2.8-liter, four-cylinder Duramax diesel engines that will push 30 mpg. And Chevy/GMC marketers apparently can’t wait to steal the “best fuel economy of any full-size pickup” label away from Ram, despite the fact it’s not exactly a “full size” Then there’s word of foreign counterparts Nissan and Toyota going diesel as well? First there’s the […]

Don’t Let Contaminated Diesel Ruin Your Summer Road Trip

For diesel truck drivers, summer is our favorite time of year for four reasons: Road trips. Off-roading. Camping. And more camping. I mean, is there really a better time of year to hit the road, or in a lot of cases, off road? We think not. With increased Independence Day travel right around the corner, it’s worth noting diesel prices remain low – which makes long road trips a lot more promising over […]

    How Technology Makes Diesel Engines and Injectors More Green

How Technology Makes Diesel Engines and Injectors More Green

Diesel trucks have gotten a bad rap over years as being un-friendly to the environment. But truth of the matter is, technology has actually made diesel engines and fuel kinder to the environment over the past decade. Diesel fuel, for example, used to be considered dirtier than gasoline, but newer standards regulating sulfur content and improved technology in diesel engines continues to drive down environmental impact. Today, many environmentally conscious drivers now prefer new diesel vehicles over unleaded gas rides because of better fuel economy and efficiency. The diesel industry has made […]

Buy Motorcraft Diesel Injectors, and Get the Best

When looking for remanufactured Ford Power Stroke 6.0 injectors, it’s important that you buy Motorcraft diesel injectors to ensure smooth engine performance. Too often, competitors cut corners with remanufactured diesel injectors, which can be seen in the following areas: Coil Assembly While Motorcraft replaces the entire coil assembly with a new one, the competition reuses the connector seals, wires and guide. This could lead to wire fatigue and poor cold starts.   Coil Assembly End Caps Cold start issues […]
