Welcome to Left Coast Diesel, your northern California Leader in diesel services, repairs and maintenance. Over the last 13 years of quality work our vision and what we are here to achieve for our customers has always been to help keep and make their rig dependable and on the road. In years past, the diesel market was heavily involved in aftermarket accessories that were build around fuel mileage and more horsepower. While these products offered much immediate gratification on older vehicles, we have seen over time that maxing out many of the factory components(I.E. Turbo and injectors) the truck starts to see repairs sooner than vehicles that have remained stock throughout their lives.
In today’s changing emissions world, Left Coast Diesel has become the leader in dealing with carbon emissions build up, the causes and effects of EGR components and maintaining customer vehicles through our state of the art EGR cleaning tools and knowledge about the functions and ways to keep these moving pieces in perfect working order for up to 100% longer than customers experience without Left Coast Diesel’s recommend service plan. We are seeing turbos get clogged with carbon from dirty systems and these EGR cleanings do not only improve fuel mileage but will help preserve the life of these turbo equipped with factory exhaust brakes and actuators. Turbo repairs can range anywhere from 5000-8000 depending on the variety for a new turbo installed; CLEAN YOUR EGR, DON’T DELETE IT).
Diesel Fleet Services
Fleet services are also welcome and offered on all 2500-5500 service class trucks and through these fleet account it has allowed us to fully test and improve the way these newer trucks run and see far fewer repairs over the life of the truck. Quality lubricants is obviously a part of the scheme with Left Coast Diesel being your local Amsoil dealer bringing top class synthetic lubricants to our customer service regimens.
Left Coast Diesel’s 30k Service
Left Coast Diesel’s “30k” service: While the dealer has a scheduled service regimen for all 2500+ trucks, the recommended inspection of differentials and transmission fluids is an “inspection” and replace upon inspection (you tell me if the oil is broken down or not by smelling your pinky). These recommended inspections are based on normal driving styles and non stress situations, if you are towing, hauling, have anything heavy in your bed on a regular basis, you can kick this recommendation to the curb. The fluids at this point have gone through high heat cycles and need to be replaced if you don’t want to look forward to 6-8000 dollar transmission builds, 1500-3000 dollar rear end rebuilds and being down from being on the job(the worst part).
