Tune Tech Fairview is your source for diesel engine repair in Boise
Trucks, buses, and other heavy-duty vehicles and work equipment often run on diesel. Diesel engines are known for their durability and efficiency, giving a cost-effective option for those seeking a rugged work vehicle. Many shops do not offer services for diesel engines, but we do.
What's the difference between diesel and gas engines?
While both gasoline and diesel engines mix and compress fuel and air inside their cylinders, a gas engine uses a spark plug to generate the energy that keeps your car moving, while a diesel engine builds pressure in the fuel-air mixture itself to generate heat.
Which is more fuel efficient?
Although diesel fuel is usually more expensive than regular gasoline, a gallon of diesel fuel will take you further than a gallon of gasoline fuel. Almost all car makes, including Toyota, Honda, Ford, and Hyundai, have several diesel makes, making diesel a viable option for many.

As durable as diesel engines are built to be, parts of the engine can sometimes break down. Here are a few signs your diesel engine might need service:
Your engine won't start or is hard to start: This typically indicates low compression or problems with fuel delivery. It’s normal for a diesel engine to crank up a bit when started, but it should not be extremely difficult to get the engine running.
There is noise coming from your vehicle: If you notice that noise is inconsistent or there is a knocking sort of sound in the engine, there is probably an issue with your fuel injectors or something else. You will probably experience reduced performance until you have the issue repaired.
There is black or white smoke coming out of your vehicle: Excessive smoke of any color can indicate an incorrect fuel/air ratio, an internal leak causing that fluid to be burned and produce excess smoke, among other things. Smoke coming out of your vehicle is never a good sign, and it is a big indicator that something is wrong with your diesel engine.
