Here at Schultz diesel Sports we specialize in the mighty Duramax engine.The Duramax engine is the leading engine of power, no other diesel engine being manufactured right now has the same amount of power as the Duramax. These long lasting trucks will provide you with the power to keep your life moving. Though this engine has a cult-like following they definitely don’t come without their problems. LBZ engines are known for head gasket failure, overheating and water pump leaks. Whereas an LLY engine is known for water pump failures, injector harness chafing, and glow plug failures. Newer engines tend to have injector problems, and piston issues. With this being said, typically the most reliable Duramax engine was the LLY/LBZ during the years of 2006-2007. For when your Chevy or GMC needs a little TLC or whether you just want to jack it up Schultz Diesel Sports is proud to be your #1 service provider in Calgary.
