Over the years, we have seen our share of shade-tree mechanics, hobbyists, or “internet enthusiasts” come and go through the local scene. The problem is that these guys are not licensed, insured, typically work out of their mom’s house or other dubious locations,  and have little to no real-world experience. Because these guys are not legitimate businesses, you’re on your own when something goes wrong. We regularly have vehicles towed into the shop that have been serviced by “some guy off the internet” and the vehicle no longer runs or is having major mechanical problems and the “guy off the internet” wont return their calls. At Diesel Toys® we are licensed, insured, bonded,  and have an Angie’s list and  B.B.B. A+ rating so you can feel confident knowing your vehicle is being repaired by professionals.


We have been in the business of converting Toyota trucks to diesel for 16+ years. It is our wealth of experience that makes Diesel Toys servicing your Toyota 4×4 a no-brainer. We have the skills, the tools, and the experience to take care of any service your Toyota needs. We service Fj Cruiser, 4runner, and Tacomas, to older Toyota pickups, and can handle any service your vehicle needs to keep your Toyota running.


If you own a diesel powered Volkswagen or BMW, you are probably of the position that you “love the car, hate the dealership”. Unfortunately, dealer support for these cars is bad at best. Shoddy, expensive work, bad customer service, misdiagnosis, and lengthy stays at the dealership are far too common. We began servicing Diesels way back in 2004 and have since become South Texas’ leading diesel service facility. It is our passion, attention to detail, and experience that makes us the ONLY solution for your vehicle’s service needs. If you have a question regarding service, or would like to schedule an appointment, feel free to give us a call. You can also send us an email here.

Quality Components & Warranty

Diesel Toys uses OEM or better quality components for all of our services. This means metal impeller water pumps, Kevlar™ reinforced timing belts etc. Don’t be fooled by the cheap Chinese belt kits found all over the internet. The savings these cheap kits present are absorbed having to replace the failed components 3 months down the line on your own dime. All Diesel Toys® installed parts carry a FULL 1 YEAR parts and labor warranty that meets or exceeds the manufacturer’s warranty. Most vehicles after a timing belt service have a 100,000 mile change interval except early (1996-1998) VW TDIs. These vehicles have a 60,000 mile replacement interval and unfortunately do NOT have an upgradeable belt.
