The cooling system in your truck is one of the most important parts of your engine. Without proper cooling, your truck wouldn’t make it a mile down the road. Keeping the components of your cooling system in good condition should be a part of your regular maintenance schedule.
When you’re in the Chicago area and you have cooling system issues, whether it’s a busted hose or even need a new radiator, call Midwest Truck Repair and we’ll get to your location and quickly fix you up so you can get back on the road.

The coolant in your engine is too important to be overlooked. Just like oil keeps your engine’s internals running smooth for the long haul, engine coolant gives you the ability to drive long distances while keeping your truck efficient and running at the proper temperature.
One of the biggest things you need to know as a truck driver is that the condition of the coolant in your diesel engine is even more important that it is in a regular gas engine. Dirty or contaminated coolant can wreak havoc on the entire system in a short amount of time. Without knowing what to look for, you could be in for a costly repair down the road if the system is damaged by a leaking head gasket or the oil is contaminated by coolant.

One of the main reasons for diesel engines to overheat is a coolant leak. Hoses can dry rot over time, which leads to cracks and leaking that quickly leads to overheating. If the truck is driven too long without the proper cooling, your entire engine is at risk. Even a small hole in the radiator can cause enough fluid loss to be a major problem if left alone.
