What vehicles and industries do you service?

How often should tires be rotated?

We recommend rotating your truck tires every 6000 miles or during every other oil change. Rotating your tires will prevent uneven wear and tear. At Bus & Truck of Chicago, we’ll work in regular tire rotations to your vehicle’s preventative maintenance schedule. 

How often should I check my alignment?

We recommend checking your alignment on a yearly basis along with your regular preventative maintenance checks.

Do all your repairs meet DOT Inspection specifications?

I’ve been in an accident, can you help?

Absolutely!  At Bus & Truck of Chicago, we’ve built our reputation by working and collaborating with owners, fleet managers, OEMs and insurance companies to complete collision and fire damage repairs in a timely manner without compromising on quality and industry standards.

Why does my truck pull to the side when I brake?

Your truck may be experiencing issues with the hydraulic brakes, the steering or chassis. If you notice pulling it’s time to schedule an appointment at Bus & Truck of Chicago to get your vehicle serviced. 

What should I do if my truck starts to overheat?

This is a very serious problem - if your truck overheats for too long, you can damage your diesel engine. Find a safe place to pull off the road as soon as possible and shut the diesel engine off. Avoid attempting to check the fluid level in the radiator; the hot fluid can cause severe burns. The best thing to do is have your truck towed to Bus & Truck of Chicago, or to the nearest, trusted diesel truck repair facility.
