For any truck you’re looking at buying, try to get an engine inspection by an original equipment manufacturer shop for that engine’s brand. The tests should include dyno, engine blow-by, oil analysis and charge air cooler. Also ask if the engine’s condition is reasonable for its mileage.

The Partners in Business program is produced by Overdrive and the consultants at ATBS, the nation’s largest owner-operator business services firm. The program is sponsored by TBS Factoring Service.
