The Best Engine Repair, Overhaul & Rebuild Service
in Red Deer, AB

Your heavy truck's engine has to be in top performance to serve you efficiently and make you enjoy time on the road. But engines tend to fail no matter how much we try to service or maintain them. While you can carry out simple engine repairs yourself in the event of a breakdown or malfunction, extreme cases might require hiring professional technicians to repair, overhaul, or rebuild your engine. You don't have to buy a new truck altogether.

How Do I Know Whether I Need to Repair, Rebuild, Overhaul or Replace My Heavy Truck's Engine?

This is a question that lingers in the minds of many heavy-duty vehicle owners when it comes to engines. It is advisable to seek the services of a professional technician to examine the condition of the engine who will then make the right recommendations.

Your heavy truck's engine is delicate and finding the right and reliable technician can be a daunting task. But if you are in Red Deer, Alberta, you don't need to worry. Our team of professional technicians at OTR Diesel & Heavy Duty Repair Inc. are here to diagnose your truck and advise accordingly.  

When Do I Know My Heavy Truck Needs Repair?

We're happy to answer any questions you have about how long repairs takes, costs, and potential issues that might arise in the future. We're here to get your heavy truck up and running quickly and efficiently.

Some of the signs that you need an engine repair include:

  • The engine light turning on
  • Excessive colored smoke from the exhaust
  • Worsening or reduced fuel mileage
  • Knocking noise
  • The heavy truck loses power, and
  • Engine vibrations due to metal-on-metal contacts

When you notice any of these signs, it is time to visit one of OTR Diesel, Auto & Heavy Duty Repair Inc.'s outlets in Red Deer, Alberta.

When Does My Heavy Truck's Engine Need Rebuilding?

Our highly-trained technicians will advise whether your engine needs to be rebuilt after diagnosis. But if you notice metal flakes in your heavy truck's engine oil, hear a constant knocking sound, or see white exhaust, it is advisable to rebuild the engine.

Why And When Should You Get an Overhaul For Your Heavy Duty Truck's Engine?

There are some issues that repairing or rebuilding the engine cannot resolve, necessitating a complete overhaul. Our technicians will recommend an overhaul if they notice any of the signs below in/with your heavy truck engine.

  • The engine doesn't run smoothly/makes unusual noise
  • Foam on the dipstick
  • Heavily-colored smoke from the exhaust, and

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.
