How to identify if your engine needs repair or rebuild?

An engine rebuild is a major diesel engine repair that involves the removal, disassembly, inspection and repair of an engine. During the rebuild, small parts and components, like bolts, might be replaced with new factory parts. During disassembly, the engine is cleaned thoroughly to remove built-up grime and debris. Since your entire engine is being taken apart, it’s much easier for the mechanic to identify problems and replace malfunctioning parts. Once everything has been cleaned and the necessary replacements have been made, the engine will be put back together and set back into the vehicle.

If you notice any of these problems, it is likely time to bring your vehicle in to get repaired or rebuilt  immediately:

  • Your engine has spun a rod bearing. This is one of the worst failures that can occur inside your diesel engine.
  • Your engine has very low or no oil pressure. A fuel or coolant leak can contaminate the engine oil, which leads to a high oil level in the crankcase.
  • Your engine has dropped a valve. This is an all too common and critical fault of a diesel engine.

What about engine conversions?

Performing an engine conversion isn’t easy. It takes time, knowledge, and patience. That's why we start every project with a conversation. Before we dive into the specifics, we want to find out your goals for the conversion so that we can point you in the right direction as the inevitable onslaught of choices come up along the conversion road.

The biggest component of a swap involves all of the new electrical work. It is the most time-consuming, the most challenging and often requires the most skill. We'll keep you informed throughout the process and ensure that you're aware of the work we're doing, adjustments to timelines, budget, and more.
