Common Truck Repairing Terms and Definitions

Commercial truck drivers handle large vehicles on a daily basis. Often these heavy diesel tucks have massive trailers or refrigeration units to keep perishable items cool during transport. However, repairs are commonly required over time, since commercial semi vehicles and tow trucks are used daily. These repairs may be needed for the vehicle’s frame or an air conditioning unit in the storage trailer. Check out the common terms listed below in order to learn more about truck repairing.

  • Pintle Hook – A coupling device that is often used on a double or triple truck trailer. This device provides a fixed towing horn and latch mechanism that allows for the attachment of a drawbar eye on a trailer or dolly.
  • Upper Coupler – This is the load bearing surface found on the front underside of a semi trailer. This surface sits on the fifth tractor trailer wheel. It has a kingpin that protrudes downward in order to rest inside the locking jaws of the fifth wheel.
  • Chain Slings – These are durable chains with grab hooks that are commonly used on tow trucks. They are made from different alloy grades, and are often used to pull automobiles out of ditches.
  • Refrigeration Units or Systems – Typically used in commercial truck trailers, these are air conditioning units that keep the storage area of a truck or semi cool. They can be set to a specific degree in order to transport perishable goods, meat products or produce over long distances.
  • Air Suspension Bag or Kit – This is added to a semi or commercial truck to provide vehicle suspension. It is powered by an electric compressor or air pump, and uses pressurized air to keep the vehicle frame at the right height and level. It additionally improves ride quality.

    Mechanics offer truck repair and service for a variety of trucks, from SUVs to pickups. Some even specialize in large commercial diesel fuel vehicles such as dump trucks, utility trucks, and semi trailers. Sometimes the transmission goes, or the auto needs a simple oil and filter change. Whatever the need, mechanics skilled in car and truck repair can help. They are often found at auto body repair shops, dealerships, and gas stations. Professionals here accept walk-ins and scheduled service ranging from maintenance and inspections to battery installation and tire rotations. They can assess and diagnose what's wrong with the vehicle, then provide an estimate beforehand. The customer can either choose to take the mechanic up on the service or go elsewhere for a second opinion. Truck repair is essentially the same as car repair, but on a larger scale. Heavy duty equipment, jacks, and other supplies are needed to provide tune-ups, clutch repair, simple hitch fixes, and brake parts replacement. Truck repair technicians may also offer custom painting and lettering, which comes in handy for commercial vehicles such as utility, pickup, or semi trailer trucks. Truck repairing and service mechanics may have a gas station attached to their shop, or they could act as a standalone business. Some even sell used cars and trucks, or even parts in a junk yard out back. If your truck is still under warranty, you can head to the dealership where you bought your vehicle and get free or discounted service, whether you need engine work or an oil change.
