The engine in your vehicle is what keeps your truck running and working. It is no surprise that if your engine isn’t in great shape, your truck won’t be, either, and you’ll need to visit your local diesel repair shop. There are a few ways that you’ll know your engine is in need of repairs:

Check Engine Light Turns On

A check engine light indicates a serious problem with your ignition, fuel or emission system. If this light comes on, it is a serious problem and needs immediate attention.


When your engine stops running and your trucks stalls, this could indicate a problem with the electrical system in your truck or the fuel system. The engine is unable to ignite the gas in the truck’s cylinders and requires attention from a certified technician.

Engine Clicking or Ticking

If your engine starts to sound like your watch, you may be having a problem with the truck’s oil pressure. A damaged or clogged oil pump could be preventing oil from reaching all of the components necessary to run the vehicle. To keep your truck running at its best, it is important to keep the engine in optimal condition. Take your vehicle for its scheduled maintenance, perform yearly emissions tests and visit Atlantic Auto and Diesel with any questions or concerns you have regarding your truck.
