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.
