Whether you drive a Chevy, Ford, or Ram pickup, the diesel technicians at City Auto Repair in Gainesville, FL have you covered.

The heads on your Powerstroke, Cummins, or Duramax diesel are finely tuned, heavy duty components. The heads are point where compression, air intake, exhaust, fuel injection, and valve timing take place. Essentially, the heads do all the complicated work in your engine, making sure everything goes right and at the right time in the cylinders.

Considering the amount of wear and tear a diesel head is subjected to by heat, compression, and rapidly moving valves, occasionally issues develop. Small cracks develop, sapping vacuum and power from an engine that’s otherwise perfectly fine. Carbon buildup decreases valve efficiency, lowering compression and fuel/air mixture efficiency. Warping and damage can occur, causing compression, coolant, and oil leaks around the head gasket.

Fortunately, we’re here to help. If your diesel is experiencing head issues, don’t hesitate to have them inspected - if caught early enough, many heads can be resurfaced or welded, repairing them back to OE specifications, and saving you the cost of an entirely new component.
