Your fleet vehicle can run in several gears, allowing it to power itself as needed for various terrains and situations. The primary forces behind your vehicle’s ability to change gears are the transmission and the transfer case.Transmission Service
Your vehicle’s transmission allows it to shift gears smoothly. However, if the valve body is clogged with sludge, it can cause serious damage to the transmission. Using the latest in state-of-the-art technology, we will install a safe and effective cleaner to suspend harmful varnish and sludge from the transmission valve body, torque converter and lines and install new high-tech fluid with conditioners.Just like your engine, you should have your transmission serviced regularly. When [ShopName] services your transmission, we:
By replacing the old transmission fluid, the expert team at [ShopName] essentially gives your vehicle’s transmission new life. Additionally, flushing the old fluid gets rid of small bits of clutch material and metal shavings, which can damage your transmission by clogging passages and wedging themselves between moving parts. Getting rid of the old fluid reduces wear within the transmission.
Replacing old fluid with new also provides better lubrication within the transmission, which boosts the holding ability of the transmission’s friction components. Improved lubrication also results in less heat. By decreasing friction and heat, your transmission will work better for a longer amount of time. A simple service can save you the money and time that come with a major transmission repair or replacement.Transfer Case Service
Your vehicle’s transfer case pulls power from the transmission and transfers it to the front and rear axles via the drive shafts. Sometimes the driver directly controls the transfer case by using a shifter or a switch. Transfer cases allow trucks to maneuver normal roads by synchronizing the difference between the front and rear wheels. If the transfer case is designed for off-road use, it will mechanically lock axles as needed to prevent the vehicle from slipping and to provide better traction. Malfunctioning transfer cases can severely affect the way your vehicle moves, so it is imperative to have it maintained and serviced regularly.
While it is important to maintain optimal temperatures in your vehicle’s engine, you also need to make sure your vehicle’s cab is comfortable for the driver. The air conditioning and heating units in your truck can have a major impact on your driver, making his or her job much easier and more enjoyable. Keep your employees safe, happy and productive by making sure the air conditioning and heating units are always working as they should.Air Conditioning Service
No one wants to sit in a hot, stuffy truck cab. If your air conditioning unit is not running as it should, one of our trained air conditioning specialists will inspect your fleet vehicle’s air conditioner, all lines, the evaporator and the compressor for leaks and wear. The air conditioning unit in your vehicle operates similarly to a refrigerator. Your vehicle’s air conditioning unit is designed to move heat from the inside of your truck to outside of it.Your vehicle’s air conditioning unit has six major components:
When you start your vehicle’s air conditioning system, the compressor works by putting the refrigerant under pressure, sending it to the condensing coils, which are generally in front of your vehicle’s radiator. The condenser expels hot air to outside the cab, cooling the air within the vehicle. When this happens, the refrigerant is cooled, and it changes from a gas to a liquid, which then passes through the expansion valve and to the evaporator.
Once the evaporator receives the liquid-state refrigerant, it loses pressure and cools the remaining liquid. The vehicle’s blower moves air across the evaporator and into the vehicle’s interior. If you keep your air conditioning unit turned on, the refrigerant goes through this cycle continuously.
If any of these components is damaged, it can turn your cool truck into a furnace during the summer months. Your vehicle’s air conditioning issue could be as simple as topping off refrigerant to replacing a valve. When your air conditioning unit is not working as it should, bring your vehicle to [ShopName]. One of our trained air conditioning specialists will inspect your truck’s air conditioner, all lines, the evaporator and the compressor for leaks and wear.Heating
In the winter months, waiting for your vehicle to heat up can sometimes feel like an eternity. If your vehicle’s cab stays frigid in the winter, it can be exhausting to your driver and even detrimental to their health. Make sure your vehicle’s cab is always comfortable and bring your vehicle to [ShopName] if its heating unit is not working as it should.
