Duramax Engine Repair & Service in Rochester, MN


Your Duramax Engine is Important

With a goal to create a superior diesel to Dodge's Cummins engine and Ford's Powerstroke Engine, General Motors and Isuzu succeeded-revealing the Duramax in 2000. Being a vast improvement in the debut year to other diesel engines available, the aluminum-headed 6.6L Duramax V8 engine quickly became a favorite to many Chevy owners with its 300 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. Just like fine wine ... the Duramax has even improved with age while even meeting strict emissions requirements. Over 1.5 million Duramax engines have been produced since inception in Moraine, Ohio-keeping these beauties production in the USA

The LML Duramax engine lasted until about 2016, with its impressive 397 hp and 765 lb-ft of torque. At the time these numbers were incredible and the Duramax remained a favorite among many. However, GM went back to the drawing board with an insatiable desire to compete with the Cummins and Powerstroke and produced the L5P Duramax engine in 2017. Even more improved numbers were revealed with a horsepower at 445 and torque at 910 lb-ft. Not only was this L5P Duramax engine more powerful, but it is also almost 40% quieter. With the strength, power, efficiency, and durability of this engine, it's no wonder it's a favorite of Chevy and GMC owners.

  • Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) System
  • Electronically controlled variable-geometry turbocharger
  • Venturi Jet Drain Oil Separator
  • Cold-start System - for better performance in cold weather
  • Cast-aluminum cylinder heads and a cast-iron block
