Obviously, your fuel delivery system is an extremely important aspect of the running condition of your truck. At Martin's Garage in Shippensburg, our expert team of mechanics can treat and clean your fuel delivery system, ensuring you get the most out of your fleet.  Keeping the fuel system clean is essential, particularly with high mileage diesel engines. Sediments and carbon buildup can dramatically affect pumps, filters, lines, and injectors. There are many important reasons to have your fuel system regularly checked and cleaned.

In the market for a new car, truck, or SUV? Used cars aren’t always what they seem; here’s some advice from Martin's Garage in Shippensburg to make sure you get the used car of your dreams.

Thermostat for a diesel truck

You trust your diesel to get you to point A to point B every time you get into your truck. However in return, if your truck starts to act differently take the time to pause and listen to what your truck is trying to tell you. Issues can be as small as a thermostat going out, which if fixed now could reduce a more expensive repair down the road! The thermostat in your truck is a small, simple, and critical component. At Martin's Garage in Shippensburg, thermostat replacements are just one of many repairs we tackle.

Brake pads are important - you don’t need them to go, but you do need them to stop. At Martin's Garage in Shippensburg, PA, we like to keep your vehicle stopping exactly as it should - it’s less dangerous, and it keeps insurance premiums low. So, how do you know if your brake pads are going bad? How do they work? What even are they? We’ve got the answers!

If there’s an issue with your diesel fuel system, the most important thing to remember is to fix it sooner rather than later. With gas engines, you can often power through a fuel issue for quite some time - they’re irritating, but not often permanently damaging.  Diesel systems are a little more important, and parts rely heavily on one another to avoid damage and keep working properly, as well as maintenance and repair from professional technicians.

No matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive, old or new, it probably has doors. Those doors are heavy, and they see a lot of use. Naturally, from time to time, parts wear out. If your door doesn’t function as well as it should, here’s why, courtesy of Martin's Garage in Shippensburg.

If you drive a lightweight car, truck, or SUV, the torque converter you have installed is probably just fine. For those of you with more heavy-duty applications, like high horsepower setups or towing rigs, the stock converter may not be enough. At Martin's Garage in Shippensburg, PA, we can help you determine if your torque converter is right for the job you need to be done.

Your turbocharger will work in essentially the same way, whether you drive a Powerstroke, Cummins, or Duramax diesel pickup. While there are differences in designs and applications, turbos haven’t changed all that much over the past century. Now that you know what one is made of, we’ll look at how it works.
