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.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Keeping Your Diesel Engine Clean, After You Get Dirty

We’ve seen some dirty trucks over the years, but our last #ShowUsYourTrucks shoutout might have taken the cake. Check out Brandon Howell’s 2000 Ford Powerstroke 7.3 after a mud run following another Indiana storm last month. Indiana and the rest of the Midwest have been pummeled by storms this year, which can mean a muddy, albeit fun time for your diesel truck. That said, the dirtier we get, the more important it is that we make sure our engines keep running clean. To help make sure you’re keeping your diesel truck […]
