The Best Driveline Service
in Red Deer, AB

Having driveline problems? We're here to help.

Have you ever wondered what mechanism is used to move your heavy truck? Well, the driveline propels your vehicle by pushing it forward and in reverse. A malfunctioning driveline can pose safety risks to you and other road users. But with expert maintenance, you can ensure your driveline remains in excellent working condition. OTR Diesel does quality heavy-duty driveline service in Red Deer, Alb.

Why is my driveline / differential important?

The driveline/differential is responsible for turning your axles, and your axles keep the wheels moving. Typically, the driveline is connected to the transmission through a set of joints. If these joints suffer a leak or get cracked, it can lead to serious damages to your truck. Without a fully functional driveline, the torque created in the engine would stop in the transmission, meaning your wheels won't turn.

How do I know that something is wrong with my driveline?

Always have your drivelines and tires checked by an expert if you notice the following signs:

  • A low squeaking sound that becomes worse when you decelerate
  • A clunking sound when taking off from a stop
  • Turning issues, especially when parking or making U-turns and tight turns
  • Vibrations that happen when the truck is moving or idling
  • The feeling that something is binding and not moving seamlessly

Why do I need driveline service or repairs?

Regular inspection and servicing ensure that your driveline doesn't suffer from a structural or physical problem, rusting, wear and tear, or breakage to any of the critical components. Our repair shop in Red Deer, Alberta, can help with all of your driveline service needs.

My radiator blew a hole on a Saturday evening; Paddy let me have it towed that night to his shop and went in on a Sunday for a full diagnosis. He was professional, efficient and did a fantastic job taking care of the repairs I ended up needing, in a timely manner. I recommend Paddy and OTR for everyone's automotive needs.

Went in for an oil change, found out that the oil pan was cracked and also there was damage to other parts of the car and so it turned out to be a very expensive repair. Took some extra time but was able to get all the needed parts in and car is now working great. Friendly service and quality job.

Super Happy I found a great HD mechanic in Red Deer!! Paddy @ OTR was first class in his attention to detail and finding a quick solution to get us back on the Road. We are out of Edmonton and go back and forth to calgary a lot, So having a great mechanic in the middle is perfect for those “just in case” scenarios.
