What Others Have to Say About Us

When Should I Replace the Truck Battery?

Batteries have a definite lifespan and gradually deteriorate until they do not provide enough power to start an engine. Most batteries need replacement between three to five years, depending on the truck's usage pattern and driving habits. Old batteries can pose a serious safety risk on the road.

What are The Signs of a Failing Alternator?

When an alternator stops working properly, a wide range of issues may ensue. Some of the faulty alternator symptoms are:
  • Dead battery
  • Dim headlights and dash lights
  • Malfunctioning or slow accessories
  • Bad odors like burning wires or rubber
  • Trouble starting or recurrent stalling
  • Whining or growling noises

What Can Cause a Starter Malfunction?

Since internal combustion engines cannot start for themselves, they need to be started with the external energy of the electric motors or starters. So, they need to operate properly for the engine to function correctly. Some of the most common causes of starter malfunction are:
  • Electric damage to the starter
  • Faulty electrical connections
  • Damaged starter pinion, single-pinion gear, or freewheel
  • Stiff or faulty solenoid switch (engaging relay)
