What We Do
2011 Ram 2500 Megacab 6.7L Diesel Head Gasket Replacement
Problem: loss of coolant and engine over-heating. Performed a cooling system pressure test and a combustion chamber leak test to determine that the cylinder head gasket was leaking.
Repair: Removed the cylinder head and sent to the machine shop for a pressure test and cylinder-head resurfacing. Installed the cylinder-head using all new gaskets and upgraded to cylinder head studs instead of the weak factory bolts.

Ford Powerstroke 6.0 Oil Leak Repair

This is a big job, on a diesel engine that is notorious for oil leaks, and on a vehicle that is difficult to work on. So you can understand why vehicle owners hesitate getting oil leaks repaired on their Powerstroke. Both the risk of the repair not solving the problem, and the high cost, make many owners reluctant to get the job done.

Why is Spring the Best Time to Change your Air Filter
Spring is here. We can expect to see the world around us anew again, with the sight of budding trees and blooming flowers. However, we can also expect to see lots of yellow dust floating in the air we breathe. Not only do you breathe in pollen, but your car does too. Similar to heading to the doctor’s office for some allergy medicine, there are certain aspects of your vehicle that require a check up during this season. Your air filter is first on the list.

However, the frequency of oil change intervals for hybrid and light diesel vehicles mostly depends on what type of driving you do.
