Causes of diesel engine oil leaks
Most oil leaks are a result of deterioration of a part of your engine. The most common cause of oil leaks is the oil gasket. Sludge starts to build up if the engine gets damaged or as it starts to degrade over time. This sludge causes the oil gasket to break down and then oil starts to leak.
Another common part that can cause oil leaks is the oil pan. Since the oil pan is on the underside of your truck it is common for it to get hit with rocks, branches and other debris on the road. All of these can leave small dents in the pan which can easily turn into holes where the engine oil can leak from.
If the oil filler cap is not secured properly or missing entirely, parts of your engine can become covered in oil resulting in oil leaks. The oil filter itself can also be the cause of oil leaks due to the filer wearing out, becoming misaligned or coming loose.
It is strongly advised to consult with a professional on these matters before the issue becomes worse or potentially dangerous. We can help to diagnose exactly where the oil leak is coming from and devise an affordable and effective solution to have your diesel engine in smooth operating condition once more.

Nashville has changed so much because of Covid. These guys have gotten even better. Thanks Nicole!
They are wonderful. We were visiting from out of state and our engine light came on. They were the only ones that said they would take the time to look at it that same day even though they were very busy. They came right out when we got there and let us know it was not an urgent problem (a glow plug was bad) and we should be fine waiting until we got home
I’m very pleased with repair on my RV. When no one else would even schedule me they worked me in and replaced the fuel pump in my tank. Very pleased!
They got my truck in quickly and fixed the issue. Edgar was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Went in for an oil change, found out that the oil pan was cracked and also there was damage to other parts of the car and so it turned out to be a very expensive repair. Took some extra time but was able to get all the needed parts in and car is now working great. Friendly service and quality job.
I really want to thank Kevin and all the great folks that helped me out yesterday. Y'all reinforced why I love Tennessee folks so much. Thank you! This is a first class operation!
These guys are absolutely AMAZING!!!! I had an issue with my trailer and they went above and beyond anything I could've asked for to ensure that I was back on the road!!!! I have never had customer service this awesome from anywhere else!!!
Our business requires that our trucks be up and running constantly. We run an extremely tight schedule with our equipment. We don't have time for our trucks to be down. We have scheduled the mobile trucks to be to us when our truck arrive to our location to take care of repairs. Specialized Truck Repair has never failed us. We can count on them 24 hours a day. Thank you for always going the extra effort to help us succeed!
This place was a great place to get a repair, they were very nice and fast and professional and it was very cost efficient. Highly recommend giving this shop a try! Stephon really knew what he was doing. Awesome Job!!
I was sent because I thought something was wrong with my trailer, but it turned out that my fuse popped out in my truck. The receptionist is a blast we laughed the entire time. Thank again for the help on my trailer and the laughs with the receptionist 🤗😂🤣.
