At Crown Car Care in Palm City & Stuart, we understand how important safety is in the world of truck driving. The stakes are higher in a big truck; potential for damage is obviously far greater, to you, your cargo, and other people on the road. Here are some easy tips that go a long way.

steering wheel

Car enthusiasts would argue that "those were the days". Everything you drove was built like a tank and had the chrome on it so you enjoyed washing it but NO power steering. For most of us, it is hard to remember life without power steering – cranking those great big steering wheels? It was a pretty good workout. Now power steering is standard. The heart of any power steering system is its pump. The pump pressurizes the power steering fluid that provides assistance for steering. Most pumps are driven by a belt that is run by the engine – a few are electrically powered. A high-pressure hose passes fluid from the pump to the steering gear. A low-pressure hose returns the fluid back to the pump. Here at Crown Car Care in Palm City & Stuart, FL we know that you depend on that power steering and check your fluid & hoses religiously!

Obviously, your fuel delivery system is an extremely important aspect of the running condition of your truck. At Crown Car Care in Palm City & Stuart, our expert team of mechanics can treat and clean your fuel delivery system, ensuring you get the most out of your fleet.  Keeping the fuel system clean is essential, particularly with high mileage diesel engines. Sediments and carbon buildup can dramatically affect pumps, filters, lines, and injectors. There are many important reasons to have your fuel system regularly checked and cleaned.

spark plug

Have you always wondered what a spark plug does? Our team here at Crown Car Care is here to help you out. It's simple in theory but does quite a lot of work for such a small piece of equipment. Your spark plug forces electricity to arc across a gap like a bolt of lightning at high voltage and fits into your engine's cylinder head, where it “sparks” to ignite the fuel and creates combustion within your engine. Without it, you wouldn't be able to drive your car or truck. 

wheel bearings

Wheel bearings are an often overlooked, but incredibly important component on your diesel truck; and when one begins to fail, other problems begin to arise. Crown Car Care in Palm City & Stuart has the information you need to recognize a problem before it turns into a bigger one. Here’s what to look out for:

If you drive a lightweight car, truck, or SUV, the torque converter you have installed is probably just fine. For those of you with more heavy-duty applications, like high horsepower setups or towing rigs, the stock converter may not be enough. At Crown Car Care in Palm City & Stuart, FL, we can help you determine if your torque converter is right for the job you need to be done.
