Bus Repair Services
When it comes to bus repair, there’s nothing the team at Redmond can’t handle. From engine and transmission repairs to brake and suspension work, our team of experienced and certified mechanics can tackle any problem that arises.
One common issue that buses face is engine problems. Whether it's a lack of power, strange noises, or other issues, one of our skilled mechanics can diagnose and repair the issue. The same goes for transmission problems, which can cause the bus to not shift gears properly or not move at all.
Another important aspect of bus repair is brake work. Buses are often carrying large numbers of passengers, and sometimes extra loads like luggage depending on the bus’s specific role, so it's important to make sure the brakes are working properly and can compensate for all the weight. This can include replacing brake pads, rotors, calipers, and air lines as well as inspecting and adjusting the brake system as needed.
Suspension work is also crucial for maintaining a comfortable ride for passengers. This can include replacing worn-out shocks, springs, and punctured airbags as well as inspecting and repairing other suspension components such as ball joints and control arms.
Preventative Maintenance Services
In addition to repairs, preventative maintenance is essential to keep buses running smoothly as small problems can be found and resolved before they balloon into something larger and costlier. Redmond Fleet offers a variety of preventative maintenance services for buses, including:
- Oil changes: Regular oil changes are necessary to keep the engine lubricated and running smoothly. Redmond Fleet can perform oil changes at recommended intervals and use the appropriate type of oil for your specific bus.
- Fluid flushes: Over time, fluids such as coolant and transmission fluid can become contaminated or break down, leading to decreased performance or even damage. Redmond Fleet can perform flushes of these fluids to ensure they're clean and at the correct level.
- Belt and hose inspections: Belts and hoses can wear out over time, leading to leaks or even engine failure. Regular inspections can catch any potential issues before they become major problems.
- Battery checks: Buses often have multiple batteries to power various systems, so it's important to make sure they're functioning properly. Redmond Fleet can test and replace batteries as needed.
HVAC System Services
Comfort is key for passengers, and a functioning HVAC system is essential for that. Redmond Fleet offers a variety of services to keep your bus’s HVAC system in good condition, including
- A/C repair and recharge: If the A/C isn't blowing cold air, there may be a refrigerant leak or other issues. Redmond Fleet can diagnose and repair the issue, as well as recharge the system with the appropriate refrigerant.
- Heater repair: In colder weather, a functioning heater is essential for passenger comfort. If the heater isn't working properly, it may be a faulty heater core or other issues that Redmond Fleet can repair.
- Cabin air filter replacement: Cabin air filters can become clogged with dirt and debris, reducing the effectiveness of the HVAC system. Redmond Fleet can replace these filters to improve air quality and HVAC system performance.
