cooling system repair for semi & heavy-duty trucks
Your Trusted Semi & Heavy-Duty Truck Cooling System Repair Shop
Serving Ohio Since 2008
At Wayne Truck & Trailer, we understand that a properly functioning cooling system is crucial for optimal performance for semis and heavy-duty trucks.
Overheating can cause severe engine damage, leading to costly repairs and downtime.
Not only that, but an inefficient cooling system can also negatively impact fuel efficiency and increase emissions.
Regular cooling system maintenance can prevent these issues, including replacing coolant, water pumps, and thermostats as needed.
Taking the time to maintain this vital component of your vehicle will save money in the long run and ensure your vehicle operates smoothly and efficiently.
Radiator & Coolant Replacement
Proper radiator and regular coolant replacement are essential factors in maintaining the overall health of semis and heavy-duty trucks.
Radiators are responsible for regulating a vehicle’s temperature. If they are not functioning correctly, they can cause engine overheating and even lead to irreversible damage.
Coolant serves to keep the engine from freezing or boiling in extreme temperatures. Its effectiveness wanes over time, which is why it is crucial to replace it at regular intervals.
Combining a well-maintained radiator and fresh coolant helps prevent disastrous consequences such as blown head gaskets or warped engine components.
Ensuring these components work efficiently and effectively can save truck owners significant money in repair costs and downtime.
Water Pump & Thermostat Replacement
Proper water pump and thermostat replacement are essential to semis and heavy-duty trucks, as these vehicles rely heavily on their cooling system to prevent the engine from overheating.
The engine of a semi-truck generates an enormous amount of heat. Without an efficient cooling system, the engine can suffer severe damage that can be expensive to repair.
The water pump helps circulate coolant throughout the engine to prevent overheating and potential damage to the vehicle.
The thermostat is critical in regulating the engine’s temperature by opening or closing the coolant flow.
A faulty water pump or thermostat can result in poor fuel efficiency, decreased power output, or even complete engine failure.
Regular checks and timely replacement of these essential parts can help avoid costly repairs and keep the truck running smoothly.
Belts & Hose Replacement
Proper belts and hose replacement are of utmost importance for efficiently operating semis and heavy-duty trucks.
The belts and hoses in these vehicles play a crucial role in the overall functioning of the engine, ensuring that all the mechanical systems are running smoothly and efficiently.
Over time, belts and hoses can become worn and damaged, leading to decreased performance and even breakdowns.
Regular maintenance and replacement of these vital components can prevent these problems from occurring and ensure that your truck is functioning at its best.
Neglecting proper belt and hose replacement can result in costly repairs, unscheduled downtime, and even safety issues on the road.
What Our Customers Are Saying About Us
I had a roadside breakdown on I-70 due to a coolant fitting failure. They were easy to work with and the tech had made this same repair previously on other trucks. The fitting is one that connects the engine head to heater core. They had to stop by a Paccar dealership (in Dayton?) to get the part and then make the roadside repair. They gave me a price estimate before heading my way and the final bill was somewhat less since I didn’t need as much coolant as estimated. Easy to work with, I would recommend them and use them again myself – if needed. My only complaint was that they didn’t open until 8a. I would’ve given 5 stars if they could have rolled at 6a. The parts dept at Paccar opened at 7a so it wasn’t a huge impact on the schedule.
I had a bad miss on my Volvo VN with a Volvo D13 engine in it. They had the software to diagnose the problem and were able to replace the bad injector. I was back on the road the same day. Last time I had this problem I took it to a Volvo dealer, and they took a week before e they would even look at it.
My family and I have been traveling for the past 3 weeks in the RV. We have had terrible luck up until this point with our RV. Needless to say, many tows and service repair work. This business has gone above and beyond. They were completely understand, sympathetic, and willing to help until they figured out what the problem was! We had our dogs, kids, cat, and extended family there with us all day. There were no problems with that. We felt comfortable and at ease here! I would highly recommend this shop to anyone. The quality, communication, and price was just what we needed! Thank you to all who helped!

Wayne Truck & Trailer came to my rescue when it came to an unusual situation with a tire on my Truck. After sitting at a Loves in Dayton for 4 hours waiting for my turn to have this tire fixed, only to find out they didn’t have the size I needed. After looking around, Wayne Truck & Trailer came through!! Cody really took care of our situation, and the company was well pleased.
Thank You, Cody and Wayne Truck & Trailer, for everything. Please keep up the great work.
Our motorhome broke down in Greenville, OH and their techs spent a few hours fixing it. They were pleasant to deal with and got us back on the road as quickly as they could.
“My company travels all over the US with trucks and enclosed trailers. We had two equalizer straps tear off of the bolt/leaf spring on one side. Google suggested Wayne Track and Trailer nearby. Great choice! Norm was excellent at the front desk and the guys in the shop were very helpful and knowledgeable. They were able to get us repaired and back on the road in a just a couple of hours. Highly recommended!”
