Heavy Truck Engine Overhaul Service

The Best Engine Overhaul Service in Tennessee & Mississippi

If you notice any of these problems, it is likely time to bring your vehicle in to get an overhaul 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.

If you notice these symptoms, it is a good idea to talk to a mechanic about the possibility of getting an overhaul:

  • Your engine has high blow by. Blow by is the compressed fuel and air mixture in the combustion chamber leaking past the piston and entering the crankcase.
  • Your engine is consuming a lot of engine oil or coolant. If your diesel is suddenly using up more oil or coolant, it could be from a variety of problems.
  • You have put a lot of miles on your diesel and are getting lower fuel efficiency. Vehicles with a diesel engine should come with a recommendation as too when you should get an engine overhaul based on mileage. Consult your owner’s manual or ask an expert about what they would recommend given the year, make, and model of your vehicle.

These are just some of the issues that can arise and indicate that it is time to have your diesel engine overhauled. If you notice any of the above problems or think that you might need an overhaul, you should bring your vehicle to a trusted mechanic with ASE certified technicians.

What is an engine overhaul?

An engine overhaul is a major diesel engine repair that involves the removal, disassembly, inspection and repair of an engine. During the overhaul, 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.

Benefits of an engine overhaul

An engine overhaul is an excellent option for engines that aren’t old or excessively worn but are still experiencing issues. An engine overhaul can effectively fix any issues with your engine and save you a significant amount of money. Since all of your parts and components are thoroughly cleaned and inspected during an engine overhaul, your mechanic will be able to spot minor issues that you might not have even noticed yet.
