Semi-trucks help the world go 'round. Without these huge trucks, shipping would be very difficult, slow, and expensive. But with semis covering millions of miles yearly, shipping across the country and even the world is relatively quick, easy, and inexpensive. Because semis are so necessary for shipping, their engines get a lot of use and abuse. A truck can go tens of thousands of miles a year, which is a lot of wear and tear, even for the best, most well-built engine on the market. Eventually, any engine is going to need to have some repair work. For semis, that can mean having the engine overhauled. 

Engine Overhaul

Overhauling a semi-truck engine basically means taking the engine out of the truck and taking it apart. While the engine is in pieces, all the parts are cleaned and inspected. The pieces will be repaired, replaced, or re-machined, depending on the part's state and its job. Overhauling an engine can cost tens of thousands of dollars, but it is still less expensive than buying a brand-new engine would cost. Overhauling a semi-truck engine has several benefits for you and your truck.


One of the benefits is that overhauling the engine will expand its life. Since the engines are so expensive, doing anything that can make that engine last longer and still run is good. You are familiar with this engine and know it works, so getting more life from it will help your truck back out on the road. 


It will be less expensive to overhaul your engine than replace it, so you will save some money that way. The fact that it will last longer will save you money because you won't have to buy a new truck it for a longer time. It should also help with your repair and maintenance costs since it shouldn't need any repairs at any time in the near future. 

Fuel Efficiency

Semi-trucks don't get the best fuel efficiency at the best of times. As your truck and its engine get older, they drag down your fuel efficiency even more. Overhauling your engine can get everything working well to get your vehicle back on the road. 

Semi-trucks are a necessary part of shipping and transportation. Without semi-trucks, shipping turns very expensive. If you have one of those trucks, take your truck in to get worked on and discuss with your mechanic if you need an engine overhaul.
