March 5, 2013
Diesel engines are fitted in a variety of automobiles and transport vehicles. Heavy-duty machinery and equipment may also use diesel to power/fuel their engines. If you own a diesel Ford automobile, whether it's a truck, car, SUV, MPV, van, tractor or bus, getting it regularly serviced and maintained in top condition increases its life-span, enhances your safety and provides you will a stress-free commute.
The best place to get your Ford vehicles serviced would be at an authorized diesel mechanic shop. These auto shops are owned and run by personnel who are trained either at Ford itself or have attended a diesel mechanic's certificate course. In both cases, they are certified to service diesel engines and have the experience and expertise to handle any problems that occurs in a diesel engine. They are also trained to use the latest tools and technologies in the field which Ford would keep them updated about, such as pressure lathes, wrenches, grinding machines, pneumatic hoists/jacks, emission tools and diagnostics instruments.
Since Ford has had a very long history of producing and servicing diesel engines, they prefer to employ certified diesel mechanics at their service centers and dealer outlets. Diesel mechanics are trained to inspect and analyze the diesel engine and its components and also undertake its repair and maintenance. They are also kept updated on new developments in engine technologies.
Unless you're a trained auto mechanic yourself, it's best to get your diesel autos serviced at a diesel mechanic shop. These shops should carry the requisite trade licenses, certifications and state licenses, such as the AAA certification etc and most auto shops display them prominently. Trained mechanics also have a systematic working method, which includes making job-cards, estimates and specific quotes for spares. Warranties, free replacements and discounts offered by the company are offered to customers by authorized mechanics. If your mechanic is a reliable and reputable professional, there are less chances of your getting ripped off - spurious or recycled parts, cheap substitutes, etc are some of the hazards of going to an unauthorized person.
Diesel engines are generally quite sturdy and durable and with regular maintenance they can give years of excellent service. Though the service costs may be slightly higher than a gasoline powered vehicle, in the long run, with petrol prices going through the roof, a diesel powered vehicle can save costs, provided you get it serviced by a reputed and reliable diesel mechanic.
