Truck Transmission Repair
Why is it important to take care of your truck transmission?
Determination of the truck transmission is not only based on the application of the truck but also the correct combination of the system specifications, which include torque and horsepower.
Regarding application, the function of the truck must be defined. The factors that are considered for the functionality of the truck transmission include PTO operation, the amount of starting and stopping of the truck, off-road use, and highway driving.
After you have determined the function of the truck, the next step is to select the transmission systems based on the options that fit its functionality. In addition to the truck function, it is also important that you define the GCWR (Gross Combined Weight Rating) of the truck.
This is an important aspect that helps with the selection of a transmission system that can handle the play load and truck load safely. With the engine torque, the rating must be compatible with the transmission system.
Manual Transmission Repair Service for Heavy Trucks
Like any other machine, truck transmission is designed to last for a long period. However, it will wear out eventually, and the remaining option is a good transmission repair service. Before turning the truck transmission for repair, there are some simple things that you can do as the owner of a heavy truck.
The first thing is to ensure that the manual transmission system does not run out of fluid. The function of the fluid is to lubricate and cools the manual transmission system. However, the transmission will run hotter and wear out eventually if it does not have enough fluid.
The fluid also provides sound pressure that is suitable for transferring power between the engine and the manual transmission system. Therefore, if you do not have enough fluid, then the truck transmission will not shift properly.
Also, inspect if there is any fluid leakage in the transmission system. The seal, gasket, or hose might be leaking, and this will require measures for proper repair. Apart from the leakage repair, you can also prolong the life of the truck transmission by ensuring that the fluid is replaced on schedule. This is because the old fluid will always have a lot of bits, which comes from the grinding of the gear teeth. The fluid also contains some additives and detergents for the protection of the truck transmission.
However, they tend to expire with time. This implies that an old fluid does not protect the system better than the new fluid.
