About Our Emergency Roadside Assistance Services
Common Causes of Roadside Breakdown
One of the most common causes of an unexpected breakdown is an overheating engine. If your engine overheats, we highly recommend pulling over and calling us for roadside assistance. Diesel engines that overheat for prolonged periods of time run the risk of blowing their head gasket, which is far more expensive to fix than the cause of the overheating itself. Common overheating causes include a busted fan clutch, leaking coolant, and a plugged radiator.
Blown or Punctured Tire
Have you had a tire blow it? If so, request emergency roadside assistance services from Patriot Diesel Service and we'll send a diesel mechanic to come to your location. There’s nothing worse than being sidelined due to something as simple as tire damage. One of our operators will come to your location and swap out the tire with a spare.
If your transmission is overheating, we highly recommend pulling over right away. A transmission that’s overheating is usually caused by old transmission fluid or a damaged transmission cooler. Be sure to call our shop and request roadside assistance right away to avoid significant damage to your transmission. A transmission that overheats for a prolonged period of time runs the risk of burning out gears and its clutch.
