Detroit Repair Services in Lorton, VA

Detroit engines have powered the trucking industry for over a hundred years. With their innovative designs, best-in-class fuel economy, and strong performance, our team at Elite Truck & Fleet Service in Lorton, Virginia, is more than happy to repair any Detroit engine

Common Detroit Engine Issues

Detroit has an extensive lineup of engines for all types of industries and needs: the powerful and robust DD16, the light and multi-purpose DD5, the beloved Series 60 engine—the Detroit name revolutionized the diesel market, but that doesn’t mean its engines don’t come with their fair share of problems. Our experienced technicians always run into these problems, such as bearing failures, EGR cooler leaks, and cracked exhaust manifolds. 

Why Do I Need Engine Repairs?

Regular maintenance is crucial for your diesel engine’s longevity, but wear, and tear can still occur over time. Our team can diagnose and repair issues such as faulty fuel injection, overheating, and electrical problems. Ignoring these problems can lead to reduced power, increased emissions, poor fuel economy, and ultimately engine failure. And believe us when we tell you that you don’t want to waste your money because you didn’t maintain your fleet’s engines.

The Importance of Engine Rebuilds

Sometimes a simple repair isn't enough, and your engine may need to be rebuilt. If you experience excessive white smoke, knocking or tapping sounds, low oil pressure, or poor performance, it's time to bring your truck to Elite Truck & Fleet Service. Our mechanics specialize in heavy-duty diesel engine rebuilds, including cylinder head repairs, fuel injector cleaning, valve train repairs, and glow plug replacements.

Courteous, professional staff that kept me updated throughout repairs. Excellent process for texting/emailing estimates. And wow, great customer service - owner Dustin delivered my truck to me himself on a weekend, with all repairs completed. Highly recommend.

I had a great experience here.   The staff is friendly.  Their pricing and business practices are reasonable and fair.   The mechanics (Dustin) are knowledgeable.   They quickly diagnosed my issue, ordered a part and had my car fixed within a few days and kept me informed throughout the process again thank you so much Dustin and he’s team members

Great shop and people! I was very glad to find this shop cause they were able to fix the mechanical issue of my box truck (truck didnt start due to bad injector seal) that other shops around were not able to. I definitely recommend this shop to any truckers in the area. Dustin is a great  person to deal with. His knowledge and experience is incredible and will help to keep your fleet running! Thank you, Elite Truck & Bus Center!

If you want the work done right I recommend taking your car here. Dustin took care of me and my car is up and running again like new! With the amount of work my car needed they had the work done faster then I thought they would. Definitely 5 stars!!!

Dustin knew I was having issues with my AC on my Supra and was able to squeeze me in around my schedule. Once I got there, Luis went through a thorough diagnostic of my AC unit and saw there was a leak somewhere in the system. He recharged my AC and had me on my way! Elite was definitely a huge help. Thank you so much again!
