truck with headlights on

Your Dodge, Ford, or Chevy diesel pickup will rarely quit on you all of a sudden, with no warning. Chances are, your truck has been trying to tell you there’s an issue for a while - here’s what to watch out for, from Kevin's Auto Repair in Huntsville, AL.

Misfires - If your truck is running poorly, lacks acceleration, stumbles, or succumbs to other engine issues, you have a problem that needs to be addressed. It could be anything from a bad sensor to an internal engine issue, but one thing is for sure; getting it diagnosed sooner rather than later will save you a lot of time and money in the near future. Particularly in the case of diesel engines, listening to your engine is important - a faulty injector, valve issue, or air intake problem will eventually spell disaster for your Cummins, Duramax, or Powerstroke diesel.

Transmission Issues - If your truck is slipping, having trouble going into gear, shifting too early or too late, or experiencing other transmission issues, you’ll want to check out ASAP. Transmissions don’t tolerate issues very well - a simple problem can turn into a ruined transmission in a short amount of time, leaving your truck immobile with a high repair bill. Truck transmissions are built to last, but they also pull a lot of weight, particularly if you use yours for towing or hauling. It won’t take long for a transmission problem to go from bad to worse.

Suspension Issues - Namely, tie rod ends and ball joints are the big issues to watch out for here. If either of these components fails completely, the wheel can essentially detach from the truck - obviously not an optimal scenario. Listen for popping and creaking sounds while turning or over rough terrain, and feel for sloppiness or play in the wheel. Pay attention to your tires as well - a lot of the time, your tread will wear unevenly if these parts are on their way out.

No matter your repair or maintenance needs, our technicians have you covered. For the best diesel service shop in Huntsville, AL, call or stop by Kevin's Auto Repair today.
