    Heavy Truck Repairs

    There has never existed a machine that didn’t suffer from wear and tear. Things like accidents also make repairs inevitable. Repairs are an integral part of heavy truck ownership. Our goal is to make the repair process as painless for you as possible.

    U-Joint Failure

    If you hear clicking sounds or vibrations at higher speeds, your U-joints are probably acting up. U-joints transfer rotary power from the driveshaft to the differentials which in turn rotate the wheels. A failure would leave you grounded so don’t wait around for it to happen.

    Brake Failures And Fluid Leaks

    Heavy trucks need a lot of stopping power. This strain on brakes sometimes causes brake fluid to leak. This is not a major problem as long as you service your truck regularly and change the brake fluid. Failing to do this is courting brake failure.

    Failure to Start

    Diesel engines hate the cold, often needing some coaxing to start up. If your engine fails to start one time too many, however, the problem might run deeper than just a little chill.

    Overheating of the engine

    Heavy trucks come with similarly heavy engines. These large and heavy engines can sometimes prove tricky to cool even with all the cooling systems. If a gasket bursts,  a coolant leaks, or a fuel line is punctured, these engines can overheat.

    Overheating is no joke due to the high cost of engine replacement. The engine of a heavy truck costs more than many small cars. To dodge such a hefty bill, service your engine regularly and bring your truck in for repairs if the engine starts overheating.

    Wheel Bearing Issues

    Ball bearings reduce the friction. This in turn makes wheel rotations extremely smooth. Without ball bearings, wheels would be extremely noisy. Axles and rims would have also needed to be replaced far more often.

    If you experience any of the above signs, get those wheels looked at.
