under the hood of a diesel vehicle

The automotive market is always fast-changing, and leaps and bounds have been made in the past couple of decades concerning both diesel and gasoline engines. With gasoline-powered trucks achieving more power than ever, purchase costs being lower, and fuel costs at an all-time low, many fleets are switching over to gasoline-powered fleets. However, diesel still offers some distinct advantages - it really depends on what you're looking for for your fleet of vehicles. Here are some points to consider, from Permian Basin Transmission, Inc in Odessa serving: Odessa, Midland, Andrews, Abilene, TX.

Gauges are your first, and often only, line of defense in catching a major problem before it’s too late. At Permian Basin Transmission, Inc in Odessa serving: Odessa, Midland, Andrews, Abilene, we know that sometimes a faulty gauge is overlooked when the truck is still running fine and there’s a busy day ahead. However, gauges are extremely important, and are typically easy to repair.

Commercial trucks have heavy engines, and they spend a lot of time running, particularly at idle. As a result, the mounts that secure the engine to chassis of the truck have a tendency to wear out, causing all sorts of shaking and vibration that the driver will feel in the cab of the truck. At Permian Basin Transmission, Inc in Odessa serving: Odessa, Midland, Andrews, Abilene, we can take care of that for you.

Turbos dramatically increase power and efficiency, particularly on diesel engines, which makes them a must-have item on engines that rely heavily on both.
