Caterpillar is well known for building both heavy-duty haulers and extremely durable construction equipment. Their trucks and equipment are known for being extremely strong, capable, and long-lasting. Although these trucks are some of the best on the market, they’re not immune to the need for preventive maintenance. Whether it be the diesel engine in a bulldozer or the transmission in a semi-truck, Caterpillar engines need to be lubricated at all times. Tires need to be inspected and rotated, coolant systems need to be flushed, and suspensions need to be maintained. Here at Iron Buffalo equipment, we’ll have your Caterpillar truck running better than ever before. We’re preventive maintenance experts.
Although Caterpillar trucks are virtually problem free when maintained well, head gasket issues do arise when preventive maintenance is not performed. Head gasket issues are usually the result of an engine that’s overheated for a prolonged period of time. Symptoms include extremely poor fuel efficiency, poor performance, and thick white smoke coming from your exhaust. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we highly recommend you bring your equipment in for service. Although your equipment might still function with a blown head gasket, other problems may occur if the issue is not addressed.
Whether you need large-scale engine repair or preventive maintenance, you can rest assured knowing Iron Buffalo has you covered. We have the equipment, the industry know-how, and the greatest technicians around. Call today to book an appointment.
