Keeping your fuel system maintained will prevent premature parts failure and poor running conditions. Here at Kermit’s Certified Transmission & Auto we have tips on the important aspects of diesel fuel system maintenance, to keep your diesel fleet trucks running smoothly - longer.
Air. Air in the system causes all kinds of issues, from hard starting, poor running conditions, or an engine that won’t run at all.

Air enters the system via a leak or a bad seal - a deteriorated o-ring, worn component, faulty hose, or otherwise. Here we inspect your lines and connections to ensure they are in good shape and track down any leaks we notice air in the system.
