Dealing With Diesels 

Utilizing diesel over gasoline-powered engines makes sense in many applications since diesel is known for decreased fuel consumption under heavy loads and longer service intervals. For heavy-duty applications, diesel engines give operators more torque - something that can come in handy when moving larger loads. Since diesel engines are built differently, they require maintenance, service and repair with technicians who specialize in diesel engines. At Madland Diesel Fleet Services, we have factory-trained and experienced diesel technicians to maintain, service and repair diesel engines - in our shop or with mobile trucks for scheduled maintenance and emergencies.

While maintenance on diesel and gasoline-powered engines can be similar, there are some differences. Heavy-duty diesel engine maintenance should be performed at scheduled intervals to ensure peak performance. Even with their benefits, diesel engines can be more expensive to repair, so it is incumbent on prudent company decision makers to stay on top of regular diesel engine maintenance. That extra expense for diesel repair is generally chalked up to hard-to-find parts and less available labor but, at Madland Diesel Fleet Services, we have the trained technicians and an extensive list of parts for all types of major brand diesel engines. Follow these suggestions to help prolong the life and improve the efficiency of your diesel engine:

  • Dirty, dusty, daily: Allowing the dirt and dust of daily life to accumulate on your diesel engine can make it hard to spot an issue when it is new and easy to fix.
  • A fluid situation: Of course, keeping oil fresh and filled up is important to any engine that has moving parts, however, oil is not the only fluid to pay attention to in a diesel engine. Coolant not only helps the engine from overheating but it also helps in colder temps. Don't forget windshield wiper fluid - being able to see is important to the operator's safety!
  • Sifting sediments: Diesel engines have four important filters that need to be replaced on a regular basis. These screening parts help keep the engine and it's fluids clean for optimum operations.
  • Do not exhaust the exhaust system: Due to stricter EPA standards, diesel exhaust systems have undergone some rigorous measures, including upgraded diesel particulate filters and diesel exhaust fluid. It's important to maintain these items for optimum engine performance.

It's recommended that diesel operators use a checklist before starting a diesel engine's day. Adhering to a checklist can help owners maintain safety in the workplace and keep repairs to a minimum, while also impressing employees with the importance of taking care of equipment.
