What should I do if my truck starts to overheat?

This is a very serious problem - if your truck overheats for too long, you can damage your diesel engine. Find a safe place to pull off the road as soon as possible and shut the diesel engine off. Avoid attempting to check the fluid level in the radiator; the hot fluid can cause severe burns. The best thing to do is have your truck towed to Absolute Repair, or to the nearest, trusted diesel truck repair facility.

Do you offer Engine Repair or Rebuild?

Absolute Repair has a team of honest, experienced and certified mechanics that can diagnose and repair or rebuild your truck’s engine to have it working like new again.

Is custom ECM tuning worth it?

The rising price of fuel in North America has led to a vast increase of drivers opting for ECM tuning. It's an investment that usually pays off in fuel savings within the first 3-6 months.
