In today’s market, trucks generally experience longer life spans compared to years gone past. Rather than swapping trucks out every few years, owner drivers and businesses are finding it’s more cost effective to keep trucks for longer periods of time, often up to 10+ years. Keep in mind, this is with a consistent maintenance schedule.

While keeping trucks for longer periods of time can create financial savings, it also means owner drivers and businesses can be faced with difficult decisions around engine maintenance, upkeep, repairs and rebuilds. One of the key questions often faced when trucks start to show signs of wear and tear, is whether to rebuild or replace the engine or parts impacted.

We’ve completed engine rebuilds across truck makes including Iveco trucks, DAF trucks, Volvo trucks, Fuso trucks, Isuzu trucks, UD trucks and Hino trucks, just to name a few.

For owner drivers and businesses, it’s often overwhelming when your truck is down and off the road. Costing you money in downtime, as well as the many decisions you need to make about what direction to take with repairs. 

When should I consider an engine rebuild for my truck?

Often, when a truck needs an engine rebuild, it’s difficult to justify purchasing a new engine due to the age of the truck. Engine rebuilds are a great option for any engine experiencing issues but aren’t necessarily too old or excessively worn. An engine rebuild could resolve engine issues, while also saving you significant investment. This is because you don’t have to completely replace the engine.

From the initial decision-making process, right through to rebuilding the engine or specific part components, to testing and getting the truck back on the road and operational. An engine rebuild is not an easy decision. There are a lot of variables which go into deciding if it is the best option for a particular truck. That’s why we work with our clients to weigh up the pros and cons of what’s required. With so many variables making up the decision, every situation is unique.
