    Your warranty for Cummings expires at 500,000 miles. Truckcare expires at 600,000. You'll run out due to months in 5 months though.

    I show that in May of 2013 it had the engine replaced which means it may have another year of warranty, depending on the miles. I can't say for sure without paperwork, and the engine warranty might not even be transferable to a new owner anyway. You'd have to take it up with the selling dealer, which is the KW location that has it

    Hi. Can you check warranty coverage for VIN#: 123650. Also, what is the warranty coverage for the steering gear box and steering intermediate shaft? Thanks.

    Just a reminder that this thread is still available for anyone having questions about warranties!

    It's not limited to just Peterbilt (chassis) warranty - I can answer questions about Paccar Parts warranty, MX Engine, Cummins Engine, Caterpillar, Eaton / Full Trans, Allison Trans, Dana Axle, etc.

    If you have any questions about the new MX13-13 SmartLINQ that was just released (or if you haven't heard of it...), I'm more than happy to fill you in.

    You ask it and I will answer it to the best of my abilities.

    Edit - Maybe a mod can sticky this so it stays at the top? Maybe? Wink wink, nudge nudge?

    It is remote diagnostics. A better solution for owner ops would be for Paccar to build a truck that can actually display Paccar engine fault codes. At least with a Cummins engine, you can get free access to QuickServe and use it to decode the J1939 faults on your dash to actual troubleshooting. With a Paccar engine, the dealers can't even tell you what OBD fault from the SPN/FMI that the truck tells you.

    Sorry for the delay - I just saw these. GrapeApe is partially correct, but to go in to more detail on SmartLinq, consider it more akin to "OnStar".

    SmartLinq allows dealers, owner operators and fleets to have their trucks monitored for vital diagnostics at any time. All trucks built with MX after the 29th of June will come with SmartLinq standar and it comes with a 2 year subscription for free. After the first two years, the service can be extended for free.

    SmartLinq allows your home dealer (if you allow them) to see the status of your truck. Out of the hundreds / thousands of MX codes, SmartLinq only monitors for about the 100 most vital codes which can cause serious issues. If a fault code is logged, it will e-mail your selling dealer, your fleet manager, or owner operators, and immediately notify them of the code and severity.

    The goal is to inform the driver / owner as well as the selling dealer as soon as there is a fault - that was action can be taken to fix an issue before it turns into something far worse. On top of that, SmartLinq also is able to keep track of when trucks are due for service and where the closest dealership is to that truck.

    Of course some people don't like services like this: You can 100% opt out of this service. While I don't encourage that, anyone who is uncertain of it (despite it being free for 24 months) is able to opt out of it.

    To make it really simplistic, the ultimate goal is to stop a serious fault at the start, inform the owner as soon as it logs and get them to the closest dealership, reducing costs for the owner and downtime.

    Let me know if you have any questions!
