Our San Diego drivers depend on their diesel trucks and the Duramax diesel in their Chevy or GMC pickup and our diesel technicians keep them running at peak performance by making sure we have their maintenance done on time and any special repairs or big maintenance is scheduled for them.

The Duramax diesel engine has been consistently improved by Chevrolet / GMC over the last couple of decades and is fairly bulletproof. This diesel engine by GM is nothing short of a spectacularly powerful, reliable power plant for its line of pickup trucks. Since its conception, Duramax has been an innovative and respected brand, with over 1.5 million engines produced in the United States and some of the toughest engines on the market today.

The 6.6-liter Duramax Engines is produced by DMAX, a joint venture between GM and Isuzu in Moraine, Ohio first released in late 2001 replacing the old 6.5-L Detroit built engine. GM was the first to make this jump and it gave GM an added advantage in the diesel truck market. The Duramax Engine utilized the new Bosch Common Rail Fuel system. The early fuel systems included an ECM (Engine Control Module), CP3 Injection pump, FICM (Fuel Injection Control Module), and injectors all of which we are familiar with and work on here at MJM Engines.

Proper maintenance is the primary thing to keeping your diesel truck driving longer and avoiding repair costs. The certified team at MJM Engines is well qualified to fix any diesel transmission, including Duramax. Our diagnostic equipment and experience is better than most dealerships and we work our hardest to ensure you get back on the road quickly, without breaking the bank.
