Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:
You can count on the experts at Dahlgren Garage to help your diesel engine last a long time.
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 540-663-3880 or visit Dahlgren Garage today.
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Dahlgren Garage today.
Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Dahlgren Garage in King George, VA 22485. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.
Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Dahlgren Garage in King George, VA 22485.
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Dahlgren Garage, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 540-663-3880 or visit Dahlgren Garage today.
Fantasticly kind, knowledgeable and trustworthy staff! The service was so wonderful as well. I will only come to Dahlgren Garage from now on.
Everyone working there was great, and the service was a very reasonable price!
The best friend my car ever had.
Great local repair facility.
Highly recommend this garage; knowledgeable staff that gave me a quote over the phone and didn't charge me a penny more. The other local shop I called wanted to charge me extra labor on top of a more expensive price to start. Another customer was talking about being overcharged elsewhere nearby as well. Don't throw away your money, go to the honest mechanics over at Dahlgren Garage.
Very knowledgeable and friendly.
Garage delivers good quality work.
Highly recommend this garage. Great service.

I've been going there for 25 years. They get things done fast and right. I had a few things done at other places but had to have Dahlgren Garage redo it to get it right.

We have a 2001 Camaro, and I count on their expert advice to make necessary repairs without fixing nice to have but unnecessary repairs. All repairs have been done right the first time at a fair and reasonable price.
They got me out of a bind when my brakes went while I was traveling through the area. They even stayed late to make sure that I could get back on the road that day. Highly recommend.
