Common Freightliner Problems

Brake Problems

Freightliner brakes are under significant strain when carrying heavy loads, resulting in wear and tear over time. Although your Freightliner brakes are reliable, if you don't undergo preventive maintenance and regular brake inspections, you could experience brake fluid leaks and brake failure.

Aside from this, another common brake problem in Freightliner trucks is uneven braking, which can cause the truck to pull to one side during braking. A number of factors, such as worn brake pads, damaged brake rotors, or air in the brake lines can cause this. Uneven braking can also be a symptom of a more serious issue, such as a failing brake caliper or a seized wheel cylinder.


Engine overheating is a common issue, usually caused by a burst gasket, fuel leak, or low oil or coolant levels. To prevent engine issues, it's best to adhere to preventive maintenance schedules and work with diesel truck specialists.

In addition to burst gaskets and fuel leaks, overheating in Freightliner trucks can also be caused by a malfunctioning fan clutch or radiator. A fan clutch is a mechanism that connects the fan to the engine and regulates the speed of the fan based on the temperature of the engine. If the fan clutch is not working properly, it can cause the fan to spin too slowly, leading to insufficient cooling of the engine. Similarly, a damaged or clogged radiator can impede the flow of coolant, leading to overheating.

Starter Issues

Apart from the colder winter months, starter issues in Freightliner trucks can also arise due to worn-out starter motor brushes or a bad starter solenoid. The starter motor is responsible for turning over the engine, and the brushes inside the motor can wear down over time, causing the starter to malfunction. The starter solenoid, on the other hand, is an electrical switch that activates the starter motor. If the solenoid is faulty, it can prevent the starter from engaging, making it difficult or impossible to start the engine.
