Crown Lift Trucks Field Service Manager Oscar Sotomayor on Diesel

Crown Lift Trucks Field Service Manager Oscar Sotomayor on Diesel



Oscar Sotomayor was first hired as a field service technician at Crown Lift Trucks. After being a technician for three years, he had the opportunity to move up to his current position.

Oscar says when hiring diesel technicians, Crown Lift Trucks looks for strong communication, someone who is good with their hands and someone who is willing to learn.

Many people would be surprised to learn how prevalent Crown Lift Trucks is among diverse industries, Oscar says. Crown is often working behind the scenes, whether it’s at a football stadium or servincg ShopRite and Costco.

Oscar says jobs in diesel are in high demand. Anything that was ever produced was moved by a forklift. The demand for technicians grows every day, because there are new companies being formed and other companies move to other areas.

The diesel industry is in need right now of technicians who can work on this heavy equipment, Oscar says. At Crown, there are many opportunities. Technology is growing every day, and there are jobs that haven’t been made yet that will be available in the near future.

UTI’s Diesel Technician Training program is 45 weeks and is offered at 11 locations throughout the country. Students learn how to perform repair services, diagnose problems and replace diesel parts. UTI also offers specialized advanced training on trucks and engines from brands including Cummins, Freightliner, Peterbilt, and Daimler Trucks North America.

The EPA is Deleting the Delete

The EPA is Deleting the Delete



On this episode I detail the new fine that was handed out by the EPA to Perfomance Diesel Inc for 1.1 million dollars and what that means for the tuning industry as a whole. The EPA has also started a task force called the National Compliance Initiative: Stopping Aftermarket Defeat Devices for Vehicles and Engines

The sole purpose of this task force is: This NCI will focus on stopping the manufacture, sale, and installation of defeat devices on vehicles and engines used on public roads as well as on nonroad vehicles and engines.

So, basically any tuning on your vehicle (gas or diesel) must be 50 state legal. It does not matter if the vehicle in question is an offroad or race vehicle. It still must remain emissions compliant. The way all of this information is worded it does not matter if your vehicle is gas or diesel. The factory tuning or 50 state (CARB) tuning must be used in the vehicle. Where this situation gets interesting is when you look at truck and tractor pulls. Most of those engines are some type of Cummins, Powerstroke, or Duramax. Even competition vehicles cannot be deleted or roll coal.

You can read the information right off the EPA’s website here:
