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.

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.

We had our truck towed from the dealership.  We saved moneycoming here, even including the tow bill.  We also didn't have to wait 2 weeks like the dealership said it would take.

I’m very pleased with repair on my RV. When no one else would even schedule me they worked me in and replaced the fuel pump in my tank. Very pleased!

I was sent because I thought something was wrong with my trailer, but it turned out that my fuse popped out in my truck. The receptionist is a blast we laughed the entire time. Thank again for the help on my trailer and the laughs with the receptionist 🤗😂🤣.

These people took such great care of me. This is my 1st box truck but they had no problem going over the truck with a fine tooth comb or explaining different aspects and functions of the truck. The pricing was affordable as well. They have definitely won my business!!!Thanks guys!!!
