common questions


What Is Truck and Trailer Alignment and Why Is It Important?

Truck and trailer alignment refers to the adjustment of the angles of the wheels to ensure that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. This helps to reduce tire wear and improve handling and stability.

Proper alignment is essential for the safe and efficient operation of your truck and trailer. Improper alignment can cause uneven tire wear, which can lead to costly replacements. It can also affect the handling of the vehicle, leading to a less stable and comfortable ride for the driver and potential damage to the cargo.

What is a Driveline?

A driveline is a mechanical system that transfers power from the engine to the wheels of a vehicle. It includes the transmission, driveshaft, and differential. In a diesel truck, the driveline is responsible for transmitting the power generated by the engine to the wheels, allowing the truck to move forward. Without a properly functioning driveline, the truck will not be able to move.

What Is The EGR System?

The Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system recirculates a portion of the exhaust gas back into the engine to reduce the number of nitrogen oxides (NOx) emitted from the exhaust. This system is made up of several components, including the EGR valve, EGR cooler, and EGR differential pressure sensor. These components need to be inspected and cleaned regularly to ensure they are not clogged with carbon buildup. If the EGR system is not working properly, it can cause a decrease in engine performance, increased fuel consumption, and increased emissions.

Why Are Rebuilding Engines Better Than Replacing Them?

Rebuilding an engine can be a cost-effective alternative to buying a new one. It can also be a good option for older engines that have been well-maintained but are starting to show signs of wear and tear. Additionally, rebuilding an engine can give it new life and improve its performance, fuel economy, and reliability.

Why Are Regular Oil Changes Important?

Regular oil changes are essential to keep a diesel engine running smoothly. The recommended interval for oil changes varies depending on the type of truck and the type of oil being used. It is generally recommended to change the oil every 7,500 to 10,000 miles or every six months, whichever comes first. At AM PM Diesel Services, we use high-quality synthetic oil that is specially formulated for diesel engines. This type of oil is designed to withstand the high temperatures and heavy loads that diesel engines are subjected to.
