Ford Diesel Truck Maintenance

Ford has a rich history of making tough, top quality diesel trucks for the dirtiest of jobs. Diesel trucks were built specifically for those who haul heavy loads and need a tougher vehicle tow it all. Another reason Diesel trucks were brought to the market for overall engine longevity. Diesel engines have a higher-compression ratio and higher cylinder pressure which require much sturdier engine parts. But even the toughest diesel trucks need regular maintenance to keep them in towing condition. Our technicians here at Sound Ford are proud to offer you some of the best Ford Diesel Truck Maintenance in Washington.

Ford diesel trucks like the Super Duty, offer you a performance unlike any other truck on the market. Understanding your truck is almost as important as the maintenance itself is. Knowing your diesel truck can also give you a better understanding of when maintenance needs to get done too. With a 6.7L Power Stroke engine that offers 440 hp and 860 lb-ft of standard torque, the Super Duty can really pack a punch. When properly equipped, it can tow up to 48,900 lbs making it perfect for any business or even family.

Ford Diesel Truck Maintenance Signs


There are plenty of signs your diesel can be showing, telling you that it’s in need of some maintenance. If you hear high-pitched noises or scraping sounds coming from your truck you should bring it in immediately because this can be your diesel fuel pump. Another sign that your fuel pump is in need of some care is if you have trouble accelerating. This generally happens when the pump is not supplying an adequate amount of fuel to the engine. If you frequently drive at lower speeds or operate your truck in severe dusty conditions, then you should consider bringing your diesel truck in for maintenance more often. These factors can cause a lot of stress to your truck and the parts themselves wearing them out much faster.

It is always a good idea to know a good mechanic or two, and our mechanics here at Sound Ford have plenty of training, and can keep a truck running for years. When you get maintenance here with us you not only get top of the line customer service but you also get genuine OEM parts for your vehicle.
