If You Think “Efficiency” is Just About Fuel Economy, then You Are Missing Out On the Real Money Saver


If You’re Not on the Road, You’re Not Making Money

There is nothing more frustrating than spending 6 weeks on the road working, only to get home and have to drag your rig straight to the shop for another round of repairs and fault code resets. Stop me if you’ve heard this from your maintenance shop before:

“Oh, uh, she’s not running right? Probably we should go ahead and clean that DPF again”

“Yep, we reset all those check engine lights for you. Oh, why were they on? Um…they just do that. But they’re off now.”

“Yep, turbo was bad again. Yeah, I know we just replaced it not long ago…its under warranty so don’t worry about it.”

“Why did the turbo go out again? Uhhhhh, must have been a bad factory part. It happens.”

“Yep we can get that fixed up for you. How long? Uh, well the part will be in next week. And then there’s a 3 day lead. And then we gotta make sure that was whats wrong with it. So, uh, probably like 2 weeks and you should be good to go.”

“Bad sensor is tripping the check engine light. We’ll go ahead and replace all your sensors (since we don’t know which one is bad). Oh, you did that already? Less than 1000 miles ago? Oh, uh, good thing its under warranty!”

Look, I’m not trying to rip on maintenance shops or anything. These are literally the stories that we hear, everyday, relayed to us by Truck Bosses who are tired of getting screwed over. Fuel economy is great, but if your truck is constantly having to be repaired, and constantly down, than you’re losing WAAAAAY more money than what you are spending on fuel. Downtime is the killer because its not just money going out (to fix it), its that money isn’t coming in while its down.

Fuel economy is no longer the only thing you can control. You can control your downtime, your maintenance, and your repairs, and Lloyd Diesel is here to teach you how.

Take Back Control of Your Truck

Nafa_Presentation 50Lloyd Diesel is here to tell you that things are changing. We have already been telling you all that most of your maintenance issues and repairs can be traced back to a factory problem with your DPF (and ECM), aftertreatment failure and you better know by now that our Duty Cycle Programming fixes that problem. What you need to understand is the next piece of the puzzle: Fuel economy is no longer the only thing you can control. You can control your downtime, your maintenance, and your repairs, and Lloyd Diesel is here to teach you how.

Our Aftertreatment Failure Preventative Maintenance program is the only training program of its kind that will teach you or your in-house technician how to properly maintain the Aftertreatment system, how to diagnose DPF health, turbo health, and DOC health, and how to anticipate and control your downtime. Our training is specialized in diagnosing non-fault code dependent issues, because we believe that if your check engine light is on, you’re already screwed. These are things that your maintenance shop are not doing, otherwise you wouldn’t have to be in there every few months!

You can either keep paying someone else to bandage up your truck every 3 months, or you can learn how to maintain and fix your truck properly yourself, saving time and money! It is time for you Truck Bosses out there to take back control! GET LDT OPTIMIZED TODAY!

Aftertreatment Failure can can addressed with LDT optimization which includes Duty Cycle Programming and Predictive Maintenance
