Recommending Antifreeze/Coolant for Heavy-Duty Engines

Recommending Antifreeze/Coolant for Heavy-Duty Engines

There are three basic formulations of heavy-duty antifreeze/coolant.

Today’s heavy-duty engines are more sophisticated than previous generations.

While this has helped to reduce emissions and squeeze more power out of engines that are running hotter than ever, the downside is these engines are far more expensive to repair if something goes wrong. To avoid unnecessary repairs, maintaining the modern-day cooling system is the essential link to maintaining the entire system.

The most immediate concern for any heavy-duty operator has to be maintaining their fleet’s cooling-system levels with the right type of antifreeze/coolant, while knowing precisely when the appropriate interval has been reached for recharging or changing the coolant.

Automotive Fuses and Relays: Troubleshooting Electrical Issues

Ever wondered how your car’s electrical system stays safe and functional? It’s all thanks to fuses and relays. Fuses are like circuit protectors—they melt and break the circuit if too much current flows, preventing damage to wiring. Remember, using quality fuses of the same rating is crucial for proper protection.
