Your Dodge, Ford, or Chevy diesel pickup will rarely quit on you all of a sudden, with no warning. Chances are, your truck has been trying to tell you there’s an issue for a while - here’s what to watch out for, from Crown Car Care in Palm City & Stuart, FL.
At Crown Car Care in Palm City & Stuart, FL, we know how irritating an issue with your car, truck, or SUV can be, even if it doesn’t immediately affect your vehicle’s performance.

If you drive a Duramax, Powerstroke, or Cummins diesel, you’ve got a truck that’s built for power and reliability. From our team here at Crown Car Care in Palm City & Stuart, FL, here are the keys to unlocking the secret of a finely tuned diesel pickup.
Your drive belts are simple but integral components to the function of your car, truck, or SUV. At Crown Car Care in Palm City & Stuart, belts are one of the first things we assess when looking over a vehicle, as they alone are in charge of operating your AC, water pump, alternator, and power steering.
While your exhaust system helps reduce noise output from your vehicle, it also significantly reduces harmful emissions from being released into the air. When your muffler and exhaust system are functioning properly, it significantly reduces your vehicle's harmful impact on the environment. It also significantly improves the functionality of your vehicle and improve fuel mileage for your car, truck, SUV or Jeep.
An exhaust system is made up of numerous parts that work together to rid your car of the exhaust gases that are created during the combustion cycle, as your engine burns fuel. Each part of your exhaust system has an important role to play in removing exhaust gases away from the engine as quickly as possible, allowing another cycle of combustion to begin. The more quickly and efficiently an exhaust system does this the more efficiently an engine can run. The main parts of an exhaust system are an exhaust manifold, catalytic converter, oxygen sensors, exhaust pipes, and the muffler.
For obvious reasons, air brakes are an essential part of your rig. They also add a level of complication to the braking system that a conventional vehicle doesn’t have. At Crown Car Care in Palm City & Stuart, our mechanics have the knowledge, equipment, and ability necessary to keep your air brakes in top shape.
