    Why Choose Us

    We are the leading heavy equipment repair work in Sugar Land​. Our efficiency covers the entire range of truck repair jobs. We take our job very seriously because a malfunctioning machine can cause a loss of time and money.

    Big projects such as construction and road work rely on the machines performing at their optimal best. However, ironically, delivering optimal performance often comes at the cost of equipment malfunction.

    Issues can arise anytime, but it is best if you keep a tab on the early warning signs of problems.
    Look at the three key aspects of external signs of vehicle problems, exhaust, sound, and oil leak.
    Attending to these indications at the earliest signs can prevent a complete breakdown later.

    You can also utilize our online diagnostics tool to identify the problems with your vehicle. Faulty
    heavy machines cause a loss of productivity and pose a serious safety hazard for the workers at
    the job site. An accident can lead to expensive liability claims and other legal troubles.

    Avoid these risks by contacting our Sugar Land facility with your vehicle issues. We run a repair
    center authorized by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).

    Signs You May Need Heavy Equipment Repair

    Heavy equipment is complicated, and as such you may experience any number of problems.  Some issues and signs of issues that are indicators of needing repairs include:

    Oil leak symptoms of vehicle problems

    Do you notice a small puddle of oil in the driveway when you take out the car? It is an indication of a major vehicle problem and needs immediate attention. A burning smell may accompany the leak. Never ignore these signs because oil is a flammable liquid. A faulty engine is more prone to overheating, especially when you drive a heavy vehicle. The engine can burst into flames, posing a threat to life and property.

    The experienced technicians at our Sugar Land facility are experts at interpreting the exact
    nature of vehicle problems by the color of the oil leak. Even a small leak can turn into a major
    problem very fast. Also, oil leaks can result in premature wearing down of the seals and hoses,
    and they may need replacement.

    Red oil leak

    Two types of red fluids are used in a vehicle, the power steering fluid and the automatic transmission fluid. Sometimes, the automatic transmission fluid is used in the power
    steering setup of the vehicle. The power steering fluid color is usually red or reddish-brown. But, it can appear brown when it is highly concentrated. The liquid smells like burned

    The automatic transmission fluid is reddish when new, but it becomes brownish with aging. It is thinner than the usual engine oil and smells like petroleum. Contact us on noticing such a leak
    because it indicates a transmission problem. Transmission issues can cause gear failure and is a serious concern for the vehicle. Do not delay the servicing!

    Orange oil leak

    Orange oil leaks can appear from the cooling system or the transmission area of your vehicle. The orange leak may indicate that the cooling system has accumulated rusting. The coolant has a slimy texture and a sweet odor. Sometimes, the transmission fluid can also look orange-ish.

    Light yellow leak

    The light yellow color generally indicates leaking brake fluid. The color starts with a light yellow shade but gets progressively darker with time. It can end up as a dark brown shade also. The brake fluid oil is slippery to touch and smells somewhat like fish oil. Again, this is a major concern. You should not attempt to drive a heavy vehicle with a faulty brake.

    Brown oil leak

    The brown oil leak generally indicates an engine problem. It starts with a light brown shade and turns into a darker shade with time. It can also become black as the oil picks up dirt and combustion by-products. Engine oil is thick and slippery to the touch. Don’t ignore it, even if it is a few drops of leakage. The situation can escalate very fast, leading to major engine problems.

    Blue leak

    The blue leak indicates a problem with the windshield washer fluid. The leakage is thin and watery and smells like window cleaner liquids. Windshield washer fluid is also available in green color.

    Green, yellow, or pink leak

    These colors generally indicate a coolant leak problem. The leaks have a sweet odor and a slimy texture. Coolant loss leads to overheating. So, you should bring your vehicle for timely repairs.

    Reasons for oil leak

    There might be different reasons for an oil leak. The exact reason will only be clear when our expert technicians inspect your vehicle. A common reason is a faulty oil pan gasket. This gasket serves as the seal between the oil pan and the engine block.

    Sometimes, the problem may be due to an issue with the valve cover gasket. This is usually the case when the engine leaks oil from the top. The valve cover gasket serves as a seal between the valve cover and the cylinder head. The valve cover is made to protect the components inside the cylinder head.

    Engine oil leaks can also be due to a crankshaft seal problem. The crankshaft is a slightly projected part that works as a mounting point for the external harmonic balancer. It is placed with seals to prevent oil leaks from the engine. You may notice visible oil deposits at the front of the engine if there is a crankshaft seal leakage. The leakage may also happen due to problems with the oil drain plug and the oil filter.

    Vehicles consist of a component called the timing chain. The purpose of this chain is to keep oil inside the timing cover. The gasket on the timing cover can also leak oil. Additionally, the leakage may be caused due to problems with the cylinder head gasket. It leaks both coolants and engine oils.

    Apart from the puddles on the garage floor and a burning smell, oil leaks are also indicated by low oil levels. You can check it with a dipstick to find out if there is a leak. Also, vehicle dashboards often have an oil pressure indicator. An oil leak problem shows up as a flashing indicator sign. However, the puddles on the garage floor may not be an indication of leakage. It can be due to pouring too much oil into the engine, causing an overflow.  

    Exhaust smoke color and vehicle problems

    Just like oil leaks, the color of the exhaust fumes can also tell a lot about the condition of your vehicle. The certified experts at our Sugar Land facility will always ask you to notice the color of the exhaust fume to indicate possible problems with the vehicle. Oil leaks are often connected to overheating. Sometimes, the coolant or other oils may enter the exhaust chamber due to the leakage. Therefore, we often get the direction for the repair work by combining the inspection of leakage color and exhaust fumes.

    Black exhaust smoke

    Black fumes coming from the exhaust are among the commonest signs of vehicle problems. Heavy vehicles generally operate on a diesel engine. The buildup of soot from unburned diesel can show up as black smoke. Vehicles are generally equipped with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) that traps the soot from unburnt diesel. However, if you often drive the vehicle at low speeds, it can lead to incomplete combustion and soot buildup.

    Grey exhaust smoke

    Grey smoke may indicate excess oil combustion in the engine. However, another reason for grey smoke coming out of the exhaust is having a faulty PCV valve. The Positive Crankcase Ventilation is an essential component of the vehicle designed for emission control. Its function is to draw the unburnt fuel from the lower part of the engine towards its top.

    Again, your vehicle may have an automatic gearbox. A fault in it can also cause grey smoke as the transmission fluid gets drawn inside the engine.

    Blue exhaust smoke

    The emission of blue smoke from the exhaust is generally accompanied by a burning smell. It usually indicates an oil leak somewhere inside the vehicle. It can also happen when you put extra oil into the engine, leading to overflowing. In that case, the smoke will stop after some time.

    Furthermore, the appearance of blue smoke can also mean the piston rings and valve seals need replacing. A leakage in these components can cause oil to seep into the combustion chamber.

    White exhaust smoke

    The usual white smoke is caused due to steam coming out of your vehicle. It happens in cold weather when the engine freezes during the night. As you fire it up, the engine releases water vapor that shows up as white smoke.

    This is usually not a reason to worry, and the white smoke will not stay for long. However, the evaporation of steam can be a problem if your vehicle usually runs short trips only. In that case, the exhaust system does not tend to warm up fully. This eventually leads to rust and leaks.

    Also, if the white smoke is thick and incessant, it can indicate a more serious problem. The problem may be due to a failed head gasket and leakage of coolants into the exhaust system.

    Unusual noises coming from the vehicle

    Apart from exhaust fume color and oil leaks, unusual noises coming from the vehicle also indicate problems. The staff at our Sugar Land facility looks into all these aspects to identify problem areas in your heavy vehicle. A proper diagnosis is extremely essential to ensure your truck soon gets back on the road. Noises can indicate a host of problems, from engine trouble to brake issues. You should never ignore these warning signs of car trouble.

    Rumbling noise from the engine

    You may notice a low rumbling noise when the engine is idling. It can be due to dirty fuel injector systems or a lack of oxygen in the fuel mix. The oxygen deficiency is caused by dirty air filters needing replacement. In addition, worn-out spark plugs can also be the source of trouble. Our mechanics will check the spark plug to see if it needs replacement. We always make it a point to use branded replacement parts for the specific make of the vehicle.

    Knocking sound from the engine

    Improper detonation of fuel inside the engine can also cause a knocking sound. This means that the fuel in the combustion chamber burns unevenly. This usually occurs when a component inside the engine malfunctions.

    Washing machine sound

    Our mechanics are familiar with the typical ‘washing machine sound’ from the car. You can compare this sound with loose changes rattling inside a washing machine. The source of this sound is a loose lug nut inside the hubcap. So, it implies that the wheels are not safe enough to drive and you should bring the car to us.

    Screeching sound at the brakes

    The main reason for this sound is the wearing out of brake pads. As a result, the brake caliper grounds against the rotor producing this sound. You need to replace the brakes immediately.

    Humming noise when you accelerate

    You may observe a droning sound as you accelerate. Tire problems are the reasons behind such sounds. Contact us to evaluate if you need a tire replacement.
