Given diesel trucks' sheer weight and size, ensuring their brakes are in optimal condition becomes essential. Brakes not only ensure the safety of the driver and the cargo but also play a crucial role in optimizing fuel consumption and maintaining the truck's overall health.


Common Brake Issues in Diesel Trucks

  • Worn Brake Pads and Linings: Diesel truck brake pads and linings naturally wear down over time due to the friction they experience during braking. Regularly inspecting them is vital. If left unchecked, worn-out pads can cause damage to the rotor, leading to more expensive repairs.
  • Warped Rotors: Heavy loads, combined with frequent braking, can lead to uneven wearing of the rotors. Warped rotors cause vibrations during braking and decrease the overall braking efficiency.
  • Sticking Brake Calipers: Brake calipers that don't release properly can cause uneven brake wear and reduce fuel efficiency. Caliper issues typically arise due to rust or dirt buildup.

All superheroes don’t wear capes. These guys are life savers. I had problems with the tandems on a trailer and could not resolve the issue after trying for nearly two hours. Luckily, Chris drove by. I assumed the day was a waste but the positive attitude from Chris immediately left me with no worries. In little to no time the tandems began sliding and the truck was on the road again. I want to just say thank you Chris and Fleet Care Servics out of South Carolina for the assist. First call I am making when there is an issue.
