Specialists in Diesel Injection, turbochargers and diagnostics for over 35 years

DSL Automotive is the longest standing authorised BOSCH Service Centre in the Hawke's Bay

For over 40 years DSL Automotive has been committed to keeping you in power

DSL Automotive started in a small workshop in Ahuriri Napier in 1969. We specialised in diesel fuel injection repairs, mainly to the transport and marine industries. In 1979 we moved to Onekawa, Napier to a specially built building and carried on with the highly specialised fuel injection repairs and also added turbochargers to our repertoire.

We gained the authorized workshop agencies for all main fuel injection manufacturers, namely, Bosch, Delphi, Lucas, Denso, Zexel and Stanadyne.

After 25 years and many changes in the industry we outgrew our premises and moved across the road to a larger building. With this move we have also added a 4WD chassis dyno & electronic diagnosis capabilities.

As most new diesel vehicles have changed to electronic control we have invested in training and top quality test equipment to keep up to date with today's very highly evolved diesel engines. We have also changed from only diesel fuel injection repairs to an all round workshop not just specializing in diesel any more but adding petrol injected vehicles as well.
