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:
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:
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:
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:
This will also cause pressure loss and engine coolant leaks.

Absolutely fantastic! I work for a roadside assistance company and I called then to help us with a tow the other night, Blue was amazing. He got there quickly and was super pleasant on the phone. If I can even get more business their way they will get it every time. #teamblue
They are wonderful. We were visiting from out of state and our engine light came on. They were the only ones that said they would take the time to look at it that same day even though they were very busy. They came right out when we got there and let us know it was not an urgent problem (a glow plug was bad) and we should be fine waiting until we got home
Being a Memphis native, we have been to about every diesel shop in the area over the years. Angel's used to own this building, but we heard there were new owners and we wanted to check on it. Turns out, its better than ever
Called the shop spoke to John. Explained to him how my driver was at Love's Truck stop near by. He couldn't move because the diesel pump was cracked Love's kept trying to send me to Freightliner. Glad i came across Specialized truck repair in Google. John got my truck towed to his shop for a reasonable prices. They got the part for me from freightliner and got it in the truck in half a day. Price was very reasonable and since they own the tow truck I got a good price on that. I highly recommend this shop If you are a OTR driver and are looking for a shop that won't take advantage of you.
They got my truck in quickly and fixed the issue. Edgar was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Had me back on the road in no time. Great business here!
