Heavy Truck Coolant Leak Service

The Best Coolant Leak Service in Tennessee & Mississippi

Truck coolant leak issues can be very complicated. It can become a very expensive problem if you ignore a truck coolant leak for too long. If left unchecked it can ultimately lead to engine failure. Once a coolant leak starts rarely does it get better. No matter what radiator you have, whether heavy duty, basic or semi, your cooling system needs to stay free of leaks in order to operate well. A small leak can cause temperature increase, create an air pocket and lead to overheating.

There Are Primarily Three Places You Can Have Engine Coolant Leaks:

  1. External leaks
  2. Internal leaks
  3. Leaky rad cap

How to Find the Coolant Leak

External Engine Coolant Leaks

External leaks are the easiest to find, most of the time you will just visually see them.

The source may be:

  • Rad hoses
  • Water pump
  • Freeze plugs
  • Heater core
  • Radiator
  • Overflow tank
  • Cracks in engine block, cylinder head, intake manifold
  • Blown head gasket leak externally

Internal Engine Coolant Leaks

An internal leak  be noticeable, when the coolant level does not stay constant. Also, you find that you need to constantly refill the tank or your engine overheats.

The source of internal leaks could be the fault of:

  • A cracked block
  • Cracked cylinder head
  • Leaking intake manifold
  • Blown head gasket

Rad Cap Engine Coolant Leaks

If you have a leaky or weak radiator cap, you may have loss of coolant in the overflow tank. This could create an air lock in the rad as well.

Other Things Could Be:

  • The cap is not fitting property
  • If the cap is the incorrect cap for the radiator

This will also cause pressure loss and engine coolant leaks.

A minor problem can easily turn into major ones when overlooked. Get the problem stopped before it turns into a tow-in event causing even greater cost and downtime. Book an appointment today with one of our highly skilled mechanics.

Went in for an oil change, found out that the oil pan was cracked and also there was damage to other parts of the car and so it turned out to be a very expensive repair. Took some extra time but was able to get all the needed parts in and car is now working great. Friendly service and quality job.

Our business requires that our trucks be up and running constantly. We run an extremely tight schedule with our equipment. We don't have time for our trucks to be down. We have scheduled the mobile trucks to be to us when our truck arrive to our location to take care of repairs. Specialized Truck Repair has never failed us. We can count on them 24 hours a day. Thank you for always going the extra effort to help us succeed!

Had brakes repaired on my 2012 Expedition. Completely satisfied. Owner is honest and makes a great effort to see that each repair is to done correctly and that the customer is satisfied. Brant Jones has been my mechanic for 18 years. An honest and helpful mechanic is a good find. Any one star reviews are most likely written by someone who cannot be pleased or by a competing auto repair shop.
