    Cat C7 white smoke

    So I picked up my truck today. My mechanic has changed thermostats. He looked over a bunch of things and pressure tested the heui pump and the pump itself runs perfectly fine. I'll be honest. My mechanic is great and solid for things that don't involve electrics and a laptop. As much as he can...

    Cat C7 white smoke

    Thanks guys for all the help. I'm taking my truck to my mechanic today and we will see what he says. As to my truck running hot....it doesn't. I actually got the thermostats because it has been running unusually cool, and cools down quicker than it used to. I will keep you posted

    Cat C7 white smoke

    The reason I was leaning towards un burnt fuel is because of the harness my mechanic mentioned to me. I am going to start from there along with replacing thermostats because it's been running a bit cold

    Cat C7 white smoke

    I've had my truck for a couple of years. Usually after idle when I would start to drive it it would give me quite a lot of white smoke on a first 2-3 take offs from stand still. Lately I have noticed the truck has a bit of a struggle getting off the line and also when going lets say in a 3rd...

    Freightliner m2 tail lights out. On the road now

    I do understand safety concernes. I have actually installed temporary LED lights cuz I would never drive with no tail lights. It's dangerous. The temp lights are not as big but very visible on top of the fact that I have 6 other lights on the back of the box around the doors so don't sweat it...

    Freightliner m2 tail lights out. On the road now

    So I've looked around some more. I have no idea what it might be. It's gotta be a wire somewhere but can't locate it. I'm not all that great at auto electrical work but I gave it a shot anyway lol Local dealers are 2-3 days before they can take a look at it. Made a temporary/ghetto fix and hope...

    Freightliner m2 tail lights out. On the road now

    I'm on the road. Noticed tail lights are out. It's a 2005 m2 106 Break lights and turning signals work but tail lights don't. Box markers etc are all working. I checked the fuse box on the wheel well but there isn't even a fuse for lights. No burnt fuses I started reading online about some...

    Every now and then my ac stops blowing the right way and it happens because the heater core gets all iced up and frozen and doesn't let the air to flow thru. I was wondering if anyone has experienced this and if there's any way to stop this from happening. Thanks

    Strange insurance question. What's your opinion. My front wheel fell off

    So here's the scoop guys. I hit a huge pothole right before this happened. The mechanics told me that might have been the cause of the seal and bearing breaking in a relatively short time. Insurance came out and said that basically they will not cover the bearing itself since you could look...

    Strange insurance question. What's your opinion. My front wheel fell off

    I'm pretty sure it was the bearings failure. I haven't done any work on it in a recent time so yeah. I actually called progressive. Lady who created the claim for me wasn't able to answer this question. She told me that someone from the commercial claims will contact me today to go over...
