Diesel engine repair is the heart of our business here at Drew’s Diesel Repair in Grain Valley, MO. Our expert diesel mechanics specialists are very familiar with each of the diesel engine models, including the Ford PowerStroke, Dodge Cummins, and Chevy Duramax engines.
From start to finish, diesel engines turn on, fire, and run very differently from gasoline engines. First of all, diesel fuel itself is much less unpredictable than regular gasoline, and diesel fuel is burned more efficiently. New fuel management techniques, increased fuel injection pressure, and glow plugs all work to heat up the cylinders so that when the fuel is injected at the start, it burns faster and there is less waste. Diesel engines also involve more filtering steps, since it is critical for the diesel fuel to be well-filtered before it is sprayed into the engine by the fuel injectors.
And that’s the short version! As you can probably tell, there is a lot that goes into how diesel engines function. When it comes to diesel engine repair, you need experienced, knowledgeable diesel mechanics who know enough about diesel engines specifically to repair your vehicle.
At Drew’s Diesel Repair, diesel is our specialty. The whole reason we opened was that the owner, Andy Bellemere, recognized a lack of auto repair shops that could properly service diesel vehicles and diesel engines. Instead, what he saw was underprepared auto shops offering patchwork, temporary solutions to diesel drivers until their cars were almost unsalvageable. So, Andy put together a team of brilliant automotive mechanics and technicians who specialized in diesel. Then, he invested in some of the best equipment, from factory standard diagnostics equipment to top-of-the-line repair tools. Andy and his team found a way to have a nine to five job where they could provide for and spend time with their families, while also doing something they loved.
Looking at the amazing reviews and happy customers we’ve had at Drew’s Diesel and drivers who come from all over Missouri and Kansas to get to us, it’s safe to say that our diesel-only repair shop has been a success! Just take a look at what one customer, Zachary S., had to say about his experience in this five-star review from Google Reviews:
I had my 2008 6.4 Powerstroke that had quite a few electrical issues (ABS light was on, Check Brake System light was on, the fuel gauge didn't work, speedometer didn't work, back up sensors didn't work, and my A/C didn't work). They had my truck 1 day and had it all figured out, they kept it a day extra to make sure everything kept working as it should (and it did). They also kept me well informed throughout all of the maintenance progress without charging an arm and a leg for their high quality service. They even offer a military discount, America! I am very impressed and will certainly be back if I have any future problems with any of my vehicles. Very trustworthy people. Thank you Drew's Diesel Repair and God Bless!”
