How to Find Genuine Cummins Parts San Diego

What makes Cummins engines stand apart from their competitors is high-quality craftsmanship and friendly, professional service. Every engine, even a Cummins, might need a little help or a worn-out part replaced in order to keep functioning properly.

However, you have to be extra careful when choosing which parts to repair your Cummins engine with. Many owners of this unrivaled engine make a horrible mistake of using spare parts crafted by third-party manufacturers because they can be much cheaper than using original parts.

Or are they?

Definitely not in the long run. Original parts ensure the longevity of your Cummins engine, while parts created using lower-grade materials by shady companies can even cost you your engine. In that unfortunate event, you’d be sorry you did not opt-in for original parts while saving the money to buy a new one or pay for expensive repairs on the damaged engine.

Fortunately, Cummins has representatives across all 50 states, and if you’re looking for maintenance, support original Cummins parts in San Diego you’re in luck as PCE San Diego offers premier Cummins service. In this article, our experts explain why it’s important to use genuine Cummins parts.

Why Choose Genuine Cummins Parts for Your Engine

Many engine owners are seriously puzzled by this question. After all, if the parts fit what’s wrong with using a cheaper alternative?

Even if these third-party spare parts might physically fit, that’s the only thing they have in common with original Cummins-manufactured parts. The parts manufactured by Cummins are engineered and tested for hours upon hours to ensure durability. On the other hand, third-party parts lack the technical specifications, high-quality materials and hours of testing to ensure they last.

Because of this, non-genuine spares can hinder the performance of your Cummins engine, and in the long run, increase the cost of maintaining it. Even worse, they may even cause a total breakdown of the engine that may lead to expensive repairs or a replacement engine.

Here are the main reasons why you should choose genuine parts:

Immaculate Craftsmanship

In many cases, the details you don’t see make all the difference in terms of engine performance. The parts of an engine have to follow strict specifications that the human eye cannot spot. The design has to be precise and the components tested to ensure your engine remains as efficient, reliable and durable as the first time you bought it.


What’s the point of having spare parts if you cannot get them when you need them the most? Fortunately, Cummins boasts a wide network of distributors and dealers of which PCE San Diego is a proud member of. A Cummins dealer has all the parts you might require in stock or can order them and have them in no time. 


All genuine Cummins parts come with a warranty. That means that you can rest assured the part you’ve bought is going to work and if not you will be compensated for it. You can use your warranty at any Cummins-certified technician.
