Semi-trucks have larger engines than other trucks and therefore need to be repaired often. Watch this video to learn some of the essential components of a semi-truck engine repair.
A semi-truck carries heavy loads over long distances, and chances are that the engine will not function properly if not inspected regularly. Those owning semi-trucks take them for regular inspection to determine their current condition and fix any truck engine problems.
Semi truck engine repair may involve replacing the engine, transmission, and other vital components. Some of the common parts of the engine that may need repair are fuel injectors, engine block, turbocharger, and exhaust system.
Professional truck engine mechanics remove damaged or worn-out parts and replace them with new or recycled ones. They ensure that they complete all maintenance and repair procedures and take the truck for a test drive to ensure the engine is well functioning.
Sometimes, however, the truck may require an engine overhaul. In such situations, the engine is usually disassembled, inspected, thoroughly cleaned, and repaired using methods approved by the factory.
