Hey Truckers! In this Semi Truck 101 video, we walk you through the rear suspension and components of your semi truck. And with our walk around we give you some tips on what to look out for and some things you can do if you see a potential problem.
In this video, we used a 2012 Volvo Semi Truck as our model 🙂

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.

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.
