Everything You Should Know About Diesel Car and Light Diesel Truck Repair Service in Florissant, Missouri

Did you know that standard gasoline engines are only about 20% efficient? That means that only 20% of what you put into your tank moves the car, as opposed to getting burned up or lost somewhere else along the pipeline. With diesel engines, it’s 40% efficiency. Which may not seem like a lot, but consider that it is twice as efficient as its gasoline counterparts. That’s just one of the reasons why diesel cars are a smart choice for many drivers.


The team at Gary’s Auto Service is familiar with all of the problems that light diesel cars and trucks can have, especially the most common ones. Diesel vehicles are prone to have extra smoke and noise because of the viscosity of diesel fuel. For the same reason, frequent oil changes are imperative, or else soot and other contaminants collect in the fuel. Black exhaust, hard starts, oil oxidization, and defective glow plugs are also common for diesel cars and light diesel trucks. When you come to Gary’s Auto Service for regular oil and filter changes and fluid flushes, you can prevent many of these common problems with your diesel engine.


In case you do run into trouble with your diesel car or truck, don’t hesitate to contact Gary’s Auto Service in Florissant. Consider this review from one of our happy customers:


“My service was excellent. I called with immediate concern on a hot engine light when the engine was cool. They fit me into their busy schedule. By the end of the day the truck was ready and my business didn't miss a beat. Hats off to Gary's Auto.” – Pat L.
