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!

Upgrading or repairing your truck’s turbocharger is a critical step that can dramatically enhance its efficiency, power output, and fuel economy.

A turbocharger forces more air into the combustion chamber, significantly increasing the engine’s efficiency. This increased air intake allows for a more complete and efficient fuel burn, improving vehicle performance and power.

Additionally, a well-functioning turbo can lead to potentially lower operating costs by maximizing fuel efficiency. This means you’ll be getting more power out of every drop of fuel, making your truck faster, more powerful, and more economical to run.

Whether you’re hauling heavy loads or simply seeking to improve your truck’s overall performance, investing in a high-quality turbocharger repair or upgrade can provide substantial benefits.
