Is Brake Failure Rare? 

Brake failure in heavy-duty trucks is not common but can occur due to poor maintenance, overuse, or component wear. Regular inspections and timely maintenance of brake drums, brake shoes, slack adjusters, and S-cams are crucial to prevent such failures.

Does ‘Check Engine Light’ Have To Be On To Read Codes? 

The check engine light does not need to be on to read diagnostic codes on heavy-duty trucks. Modern diagnostic tools can retrieve codes and assess the truck's electronic systems even if the check engine light is off, helping preemptively identify issues.

What Wears Out A Driveshaft? 

A driveshaft in a heavy-duty truck wears out due to excessive load, improper alignment, lack of lubrication, or damaged components like U-joints. Regular inspection and maintenance are key to ensuring driveshaft longevity and performance.

What Will A Stuck EGR Valve Cause? 

A stuck Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve in a heavy-duty truck can cause reduced engine performance, increased fuel consumption, engine knocking, and potentially lead to engine damage due to improper exhaust gas circulation.

How Long Will A Rebuilt Diesel Engine Last? 

A rebuilt diesel engine in a heavy-duty truck can last anywhere from 500,000 to 1,000,000 miles, depending on the quality of the rebuild, the engine model, and how well it's maintained. Proper care and regular maintenance are essential for maximizing lifespan.

Can You Replace Suspension Yourself? 

Replacing the suspension on a heavy-duty truck yourself is possible but challenging. It requires mechanical knowledge, proper tools, and safety precautions. For those without experience, it's recommended to seek professional help to ensure correct installation and vehicle safety.

Can You Repair a 7-Year-Old Tire?

Repairing a 7-year-old tire on a heavy-duty truck is generally not recommended. Tires degrade over time, and older tires, even if they appear in good condition, may have compromised integrity, leading to safety risks. Replacing old tires is usually the safer option.
