What are some common engine problems for Ford Diesels?

Those who love Fords, love Ford diesel pickups - if you're a Chevy, GMC or Dodge person I will get to them too - I promise.

Fords are renowned for their strength and reliability, there are a few things you should know about your diesel engine.  This can help you maintain your truck and avoid costly repairs.

Injector Failure - premature fuel injector failure which is often caused by poor-quality fuel. Symptoms include rough idling, misfires, and a significant drop in fuel efficiency. Regularly using high-quality diesel, changing your fuel filter and regular maintenance can prevent premature failure. They are a wearing part though so they will need to be replaced at some point. 

Turbocharger Problems - is your turbocharger lagging? Or has it failed?  These problems might be due to oil contamination, wear, or excessive exhaust temperatures. Regular oil changes and keeping an eye on your truck's exhaust system can help prevent a failure. 

Head Gasket Failure - preventative measures and taking care of coolant leaks which can lead to engine overheating can prevent this from happening. 

Routine maintenance and staying on top of repairs as needed can diesel pickup running smoothly. If you encounter any of these problems give us a call and let us take care of you.
