I can’t say I do and I have zero experience with PACCAR drive train. My Eaton auto in my 2018 will geek out usually when I start it and make it fault and not go into gear. **** it off restart and it’s fine. I also have a Cummins engine so. Sorry wish I could be more help.My 2019 579 with PACCAR drivetrain has been intermittently going into transmission fault mode when moving it around to docks. This is new since the last service? Seems to have to do with shifting before it completely stops? Anybody else have this issue?
They don’t want the weight of an actual automatic, you know the ones that actually work like they’re supposed to. So they go with an automated manual. That extra 300 pounds of freight they can put on the trailer cuts into the bottom line.If you have to have an autobox, why don't these companies simply go with the tried and true Allisons? They are bulletproof, light, can be used up to 2100 ft lbs of torque and can be had in a variety of ratios and speeds.
I was recently employed by a company that had both Eatons and Allisons. The Eatons were always OOS due to faults in the transmissions and software. The Allisons went merrily on with no issues. The only problem those trucks encountered were the junk Paccar engines. Like the Volvo engines they could get the EGR's to last over a few months.
Been there, done that, got the T-shirt. Managers are just scapegoats when the drivers screw up on the road.If you are going to be realistic about things, you will never be management material.
I talk to myself all day and get nothing BUT stupid answers.Been there, done that, got the T-shirt. Managers are just scapegoats when the drivers screw up on the road.
I'd rather be alone in the truck in all honesty. I can talk to myself all day and never get a stupid answer.
