Whether you drive a Chevy, Ford, or Ram diesel pickup, your engine is likely equipped with an injection pump. While injection pumps have been gradually phased out on modern engines, they are still an integral part of most diesel engine operations. At KG Truck & Auto in Glen Burnie, MD, we specialize in maintenance and repair on Cummins, Duramax, and Powerstroke engines, including injection pumps.
An injection pump is exactly what it sounds like; it’s a mechanical device that pumps fuel into the cylinders. They are a bit complicated, and fairly intricate devices…and as such, require proper maintenance and care. If your diesel isn’t running quite like it used to, a faulty injection pump might be to blame.
Diesel engines work hard, and injection pumps, albeit reliable, are one of the most hard-working components on your engine. In fact, most pumps these days are capable of producing pressures upwards of 15,000psi – a staggering number in any context.
The great thing about injection pump issues is they can often be fixed, by either repairing or rebuilding your existing unit, circumventing the cost of a brand-new pump. Our technicians have the equipment and knowledge necessary to inspect, diagnose, and repair any injection pump issues, on every type of diesel.
No matter your maintenance or repair needs, we’ve got you covered. For the best diesel pickup service shop in Glen Burnie, MD, call or stop by KG Truck & Auto today.
