Diesel engines have been around for over 100 years, and they still command the attention of most drivers, simply because of the performance they provide.

The Chevrolet Cruze and the New Nissan Navara are two vehicles that have hit the market this year. Highly anticipated, the two vehicles are powerful with diesel engines that are built to give impressive performances.

The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel is a non-hybrid and fuel-efficient vehicle, producing low carbon dioxide emissions. Beating expectations, the engine is fairly quiet for a diesel vehicle, and the engine vibration has been reduced to a minimum.

The Nissan Navara, on the other hand, is a range of mid- and high-specification double-cab models. Deemed a “workhorse” by The Citizen, the vehicles have twin-turbo diesel engines that provide the driver with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic gearbox.

Car enthusiasts are expecting to see more diesel-powered cars in the future. Both vehicles are powerhouses as it is but with an enhancement from fuel injector servicing, both could be reconditioned, ultimately pushing them to perform better.

If you think a diesel-powered engine could benefit from a little boost, contact Simms Diesel & Turbocharger Service for diesel injector services. The main purpose of the system is to deliver fuel to the cylinders of a diesel engine, making a huge difference in emissions, noise characteristics and engine performance.

Diesel injector services require specialised equipment for safe removal and refitting. Simms & Diesel Turbocharger has a large stock of spare parts at their workshop so that they can replace the engine parts onsite. They diagnose, repair, service and recondition most makes of injectors, turbochargers and diesel fuel pumps. Visit their website at to request for an inspection schedule.
