Our competitively priced Drive Train services include:
A clutch is a component of the drive train that engages and disengages the power transmission from the driving shaft to driven shaft. The clutch is located between the gearbox and the engine. During a gear change, disengaging is required and the clutch facilitates this disengagement. Clutches need periodic servicing and replacing. When it comes to clutch repairs and replacements, you can count on Columbia Fleet Service in Jessup, MD 20794. We have engine experts who will ensure that all your truck or fleet clutch issues are addressed.
The differential is another component of your truck's drive train. The differential lets your truck make turns with ease (remember, the different wheels of your truck travel varying distances when turning). The differential should be serviced regularly. Your fleet of trucks requires periodic differential repairs and replacement. At Columbia Fleet Service, we offer differential repair, rebuild, or maintenance services for trucks.
A drive line is made up of all the parts of the powertrain (the main components that generate power and drive your truck), but excluding the transmission and engine. The driveline, which is located after the transmission, changes depending on whether the vehicle is rear-wheel, front-wheel, or four-wheel drive.
With time, moisture, pressure, heat and load cause gear oil to breakdown leading to lubrication failure and worn out gears. This will result in noisy engines and poor truck performance. To solve drive line problems, you need to have worn-out lubricant and engine parts replaced. To have this done by experts, call 410-799-2500 or visit Columbia Fleet Service today. We will ensure that you experience smoother gear shifting.
Fly Wheel Service
The clutch is responsible for transferring power from the engine to the transmission and the drive wheels. Engaging the clutch initiates this transfer while disengaging it stops power from going to the transmission. The component of the engine that connects to the clutch is called the flywheel. The flywheel is a metal disc that is attached to the engine’s crankshaft and provides a friction surface on which the clutch can link. In addition, the flywheel acts as a balancer for the engine, limits its vibrations, and transfers power from the starter to the engine. Because the flywheel is exposed to pressure and extreme heat, it is prone to becoming worn, warped, or cracked. Symptoms of a bad flywheel include vibration through the clutch, a burning smell, and clutch slippage. At Columbia Fleet Service, we recommend having your vehicle’s clutch and flywheel checked periodically for wear to prevent more expensive damage down the road. Our expert technicians take pride in providing quality, affordable repair.
A truck's transmission adapts the output mechanical power from the engine to drive the wheels. The main purpose is to reduce the number of revolutions made by the crankshaft by use of interlocking gears. The common types of transmissions include manual transmission, automatic transmission, semi-automatic transmission, direct shift gearbox (DSG), TipTronic gearbox, and continuous variable transmission (CVT).
With time, a truck's transmission wears out and starts developing problems. Transmission problems are known to cause mechanical breakdowns. When this happens, you need to have the transmission repaired, rebuilt, or replaced. For everything from transmission rebuilding to transmission repair and transmission replacement, trust Columbia Fleet Service. Call us or visit us today.
Had to have my tractor/trailer (78' long, 75K lbs) towed yesterday. Dustin, tow truck driver, arrived earlier than anticipated. He had my truck hooked and on the way to Kenworth dealership in about 30 mins. Have been towed a couple of times before. It took other drivers much longer. It did not take long for me to realize Dustin knew what he was doing. He paid particular attention to safety of my truck (large sleeper (120") and loaded trailer (enclosed car hauler with extended bubble on front). He was very professional, safe, and personable. He did an excellent job! Highly recommend his services!
