Understanding Transmissions

Heavy-duty trucks are equipped with different types of transmissions, each designed to handle specific driving conditions and applications. The two main types of transmissions used in heavy-duty trucks are manual and automatic transmissions. Manual transmissions require the driver to manually shift gears using a clutch, while automatic transmissions shift gears automatically.

Functions of a Transmission

The transmission is responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels and plays a critical role in determining the overall performance and efficiency of the vehicle. The transmission also helps to maintain the speed and torque of the vehicle, allowing it to operate at optimal levels under different driving conditions. Without a properly functioning transmission, the vehicle may experience reduced power, increased fuel consumption, and other performance issues.

Common Transmission Issues

Heavy-duty trucks commonly face transmission issues such as slipping transmission, fluid leaks, overheating, unusual noises, warning lights, and shifting problems. These issues can cause decreased fuel efficiency, transmission failure, and reduced performance. They can be caused by various factors such as damaged seals, low fluid levels, faulty cooling systems, or worn-out gears. Prompt addressing of these issues is essential to avoid further damage to the transmission.

Understanding Clutches

There are two main types of clutches found in heavy-duty trucks: single-disc and dual-disc clutches. Single-disc clutches consist of one disc and are generally less expensive and simpler to install. Dual-disc clutches, on the other hand, consist of two discs and are typically used in heavier trucks that require more torque.

Functions of a Clutch

The clutch is a critical component of a heavy-duty truck's transmission system. It is responsible for transferring power from the engine to the transmission and allowing the driver to engage or disengage the gears. The clutch works by pressing the clutch pedal, which disengages the clutch and allows the driver to shift gears. When the pedal is released, the clutch engages and transfers power to the transmission, allowing the truck to move.

In addition to its primary function, the clutch also helps to protect the transmission from damage by absorbing shocks and vibrations. Regular maintenance and repairs of the clutch system are crucial to ensure its proper functioning and prevent costly breakdowns.

Common Clutch Issues

Heavy-duty trucks can experience various clutch issues such as clutch slippage, clutch chatter, clutch noise, pedal issues, warning lights, and shifting problems. These issues can lead to reduced performance, increased fuel consumption, and even vehicle downtime. Proper maintenance by Fleetgo Heavy Duty and repair of the clutch system are crucial for the smooth operation of a heavy-duty truck, and early detection and resolution of any issues can prevent costly repairs and downtime.

FleetGo is nothing short of amazing.  They are kind and reasonable. They take every effort to put themselves in the shoes of a small business owner to do what they can to help.

Bradly Helm

I have used FleetGo for several years now and I recommend them to anyone with a heavy duty truck. They are prompt, fair pricing and overall make every effort to get our trucks finished so we can get back on the road as fast as possible. This morning one of our trucks had a belt break, they were on site within an hour and had it fixed shortly after that. Cant thank them enough!

Helped one of my drivers out in a jam on short notice the week before Christmas and got him rolling in less than 2 hours.

Very good service.  Pricing on par with industry average.

We had been having a stumbling issue with our 2007 international 7400 for a year and a half, had it at dealer and performed many tests to resolve situation but to no avail,

Called Aaron at Fleetgo after a reputable company referred him and had issue solved over the Phone in less than 20 minutes of his call. Give him a try👍👍👍👍👍
