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.

Kenworth shifting hard, How to replace air pressure regulator on an Eaton Fuller auto shift

Kenworth shifting hard, How to replace air pressure regulator on an Eaton Fuller auto shift



#AUTOSHIFT #EATONFULLER #TRANSMISSION
Welcome back to DIY SEMI.

Here we have a Kenworth t660 with an Eaton fuller auto shift that is having a hard time shifting. The truck just had a new clutch put in. And while it was out, a full inspection. This air regulator should probably be serviced about every 500,000 miles according to the manual. We test drove the truck after replacing it and it shifts properly now.
It was not hard to replace. Just a tight spot and dirty. Use safety glasses and make sure the truck frame is supported so it doesn’t settle down on you.
It is definately a do it yourself type project.

Welcome to the DIY Semi channel.
In this video I’ll show you how to fix a non working blower motor.
If your blower motor goes out, it could be the motor, a fuse,relay, or the motor itself.
I had some problems along the way and almost gave up on it. But I was determined to figure this out.
I learned some valuable lessons along the way. So if you stay tuned all the way through, you won’t make the same mistakes I did. Which will save you time and aggravation.

RV Crashes Into Center Divide After Steer Tire Blowout!

RV Crashes Into Center Divide After Steer Tire Blowout!



In today’s video Darl initially responds to a CHP call of a 40ft diesel pusher that had a front steer tire blowout causing it to crash into the center divider on the 10 freeway. Darl in the Landoll trailer attempted to winch the RV away from the center divider with no success due to the impact wedging the RV into the center divider. At this point, Darl called Trent Jr who so happened to be in the rotator already to respond to the scene to winch the RV back and away from the center. The rotator was perfect in this situation because we were able to work off the nose of the truck and not shut the highway down once.

– – – – Frequently Asked Questions – – – –
Q:What camera do you use?
A: I use the Go Pro Hero 7 Black Edition primarily. Often times you will see auxillary cameras in use. Those cameras include The Go Pro Hero 6, Hero, and DJI Mavic Pro Platinum

Q: How big Is your rotator?
A: It is a 50 ton Miller Industries Vulcan 950

Q: Does the carriage slide back like Ron Pratt’s?
A: No, the carriage doesn’t slide back due to strict weight laws in California. The sliding carriage will make the truck to heavy in CA

Q: Why do you only have 3 winches on the rotator?
A: Comes down to weight again as stated above

Q: How many trucks Does Plaza Towing have?
A: Currently more than 30

Q: Why must the driveshaft be removed to tow a vehicle?
A: When vehicles are not running the transmission is not receiving circulating lubricant. If the driveshaft is left installed, the transmission, which is not receiving lubricant, is still spinning. This allows it to get very hot which eventually will cause major damage to the transmission. Therefore, removing the driveshaft completely eliminates the transmission from spinning. Simply leaving it in neutral is not sufficient since the transmission still spins in neutral.
