Hydraulic Repair Service
At TLC Auto and Truck Repair, we offer all auto and truck services including full range hydraulic services.
Repair, replacement, installation, and scheduled maintenance of all hydraulic system components are included.
These services are performed by trained technicians who start by performing full grade diagnostics on the system to figure out the appropriate steps to take.
And with only the best and most specialized tools, fixing up hydraulic system issues is not a problem. Which is good news for you because your vehicle’s hydraulic system is highly beneficial to you.
Hydraulic Repair and Your Vehicle
As a driver of either a car or a truck, you probably see your automobile as a collection of parts powered by an engine so it can drive on its wheels and tires.
That’s true to an extent. However, an automobile is so much more than that. Some parts play major roles and are regarded as such. Take the engine for instance. It’s the powerhouse of the vehicle.
The hydraulics are just as important. “Hydraulics” is a rather vast term describing systems found not only in vehicles but also in industrial machines.
Their basic design is built to provide power, control, safety, and improve the performance of the system in question.
In the actual sense, they’re anything but basic. They’re quite complex.
With numerous parts ranging from a hydraulic pump, an electric motor, and a hydraulic cylinder to the valves, it’s important that whoever is working on them has a solid grasp of them.
For instance, a vehicle’s brakes are hydraulic. This means they use fluid to operate. So, whenever you hit the brakes to stop the car, you’re pushing a pistol into the master cylinder – the brake fluid reservoir.
The fluid then transfers pressure to brake lines that run up to each wheel, thereby activating the brakes and stopping the vehicle.
Hydraulic systems can also be a part of a vehicle’s suspension system where it provides a much smoother ride for the driver.
Beyond that, there are different types of hydraulic systems but they all contain the basic parts listed above.
Generally, think of them as a means of pushing hydraulic fluid through a system to generate “fluid power”.
Issues here must be determined through expert hydraulic diagnostics. It also calls for a repair.
“Managing” the problem is not a solution. A permanent solution would be adequate repair and replacement of the necessary components.
Truck Hydraulic Systems
These differ a little in their working principle. The system works in an open circuit where a single truck hydraulic pump supplies fluid to the truck’s hydraulic system.
Just like the hydraulic cylinders mentioned above, these systems also have cylinders that control various features of the truck, such as acting and retracting.
As the hydraulic fluid moves through the system, it either increases or decreases pressure to control the various parts.
Without a fully functional hydraulic system in place, you would have a rather hard time controlling your car or truck.
One of the biggest uses of hydraulics in trucks is in controlling hydraulic cranes (for trucks that have them).
A typical hydraulic boom truck – a mobile crane – would come with a diesel engine. However, the crane would be controlled by the hydraulic system.
The majority of the big trucks around depend on hydraulic systems to perform their heavy-duty tasks.

Why You Should Get Hydraulic Repair Services?
Each of the above-listed services is indicated for a particular issue with the hydraulic system of your automobile.
Fixing them will significantly improve the performance of your vehicle.
- The electronic control system ensures the overall hydraulic system functions properly by optimizing the fluid movement ratio based on your preferred mode.
- A fully functional electronic system in a hydraulic pump goes beyond controlling the system to monitoring its output and optimizing it for cars and trucks.
- Hydraulic components play an invaluable role in your vehicle or equipment’s reliability.
- Hydraulic systems play a huge role in the performance (especially weight lifting) of trucks, such as truck-mounted cranes, garbage trucks, and snowplows.
- Regular maintenance of your hydraulic system will help you avoid breakdowns and repairs that could be potentially costly.
