A professional engine overhaul will save you the expense and hassle of buying a completely new vehicle or engine while ensuring a smooth, safe performance.

DOES YOUR ENGINE NEED AN OVERHAUL?

Our truck engine overhaul service benefits a wide range of business leaders and fleet managers who are having vehicle efficiency issues. While most engines are built to withstand the test of time as long as they receive the proper care and maintenance, it’s inevitable that they will start to build up wear and tear after several years of use. 

An engine overhaul typically involves taking the motor apart and replacing or repairing vital components so it can function normally again. For instance, the engine overhaul process may include the placement of new gaskets, oil seals, rings, and pistons. Thorough inspections and tests can determine which replacements and repairs are needed so that your drivers can get back out on the road as soon as possible. 

Your engine may be ready for an overhaul if it starts showing some of these tell-tale signs:

  • Low power
  • Hard starting
  • High blowby
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Wear metals in oil
  • Multiple parts failures
  • Blue or white smoke
  • High oil consumption

Any of these indicators could mean that it’s time to consider giving your truck engine a much-needed boost. Frequent power, fuel, and component issues can lead to major expenses for your business, cutting into profits. A truck engine overhaul reduces the risk of major repairs and downtime expenses so you can maximize gains and protect your employees.
