Because of their efficiency and durability, diesel engines have become the standard in work trucks, recreation trucks, and power fleets.  Many of our drivers simply drive them off road or take them to the lake to pull their boats or a trailer with their ATV or RTV or a multitude of other things.  Our fleet customers use them for their business needs as they hold their value and do the heavy lifting other trucks don't.  

cumminsOur diesel service technicians here at Intercourse Automotive 4X4 in Intercourse, PA are seriously qualified and trained to work on your diesel Ford, GMC, Dodge, or Chevy truck engine and are up to date on all the training with the diagnostic equipment needed to service that Cummins, Power Stroke, or Duramax diesel engine whether it be a standard diesel service or maintenance job or a complete and in-depth diesel repair job such as an engine or transmission repair or replacement.  Our diesel mechanics are the best in the business and can get your truck in the bay and out and let you know what is wrong with it as well as give you options for service and a plan of action at a cost that is less than what you will find at the dealership.  Our diagnostic equipment you will find is as good as if not better in some cases than the dealership and our diesel mechanics see more diesel engines than their service technicians do.  Also, we can do factory warranty work and factory service work right here in the shop saving you time and money! 

duramaxOur diesel mechanics handle many kinds of repairs on the Ford, Chevy, Dodge, & GMC trucks that come into the shop such as electrical system, major engine repairs, or retrofit engines with emission control systems to comply with pollution regulations.  Diesel engine maintenance is becoming increasingly complex as engines and other components use more electronic systems to control their operation. For example, fuel injection and engine timing systems rely heavily on microprocessors to maximize fuel efficiency.
