Computer diagnostics might seem straightforward from a distance, but they are far from this when you actually get into diagnosing what’s wrong with your vehicle. This is especially the case for medium and heavy-duty vehicles like trucks, trailers, and similar vehicles. Computer diagnostics help you in figuring out where the problems lie in your vehicle, but the accuracy of this depends entirely on the person performing the diagnostics. This is why it’s so important to go to a shop that knows what they’re doing and can help you quickly and effectively figure out the problem by carrying out these diagnostics.
Vehicles have on-board diagnostics (OBD) that inform drivers when something might be wrong with their vehicle. However, you might not be able to tell there is a problem, or even where the problem lies, without hooking up a computer for diagnosis. Still, here is what the lights on your OBD system might mean:
If the light turns on: The light tells you what part of the vehicle you should be paying attention to. It could light up for “check engine” or tell you to “service engine soon”. It can’t tell you exactly what’s wrong with your engine, but just that you should get it checked by a professional soon or it may cause problems.
If the light blinks: If your “check engine” light is blinking, this means that you should head to the repair shop immediately so that the issue can be diagnosed and fixed. Drive carefully and shed all heavy equipment while moving to the shop as soon as possible.
If the light goes off: Sometimes, the problem lies in your light and not your vehicle itself. If the light goes off while you’re driving to the shop, you should be in the clear from any danger or issues. Just make sure it doesn’t turn on again or start blinking.
If you need a reliable team of professionals for running computer diagnostics on your vehicle, contact Amun Mechanical Inc. today.
The Commercial Vehicle Inspection Program (CVIP) is a mandatory inspection for Calgary and other parts of Canada to ensure the safety and security of all commercial vehicles on the Canadian highways. These inspections set the standard for your vehicle’s maintenance, and you are given a certificate and a windshield decal upon successfully passing an inspection. At Amun Mechanical Inc., we are happy to offer our services as certified CVIP inspectors to help you safely drive on Canadian roads and avoid fines and penalties. We also offer CVIP reports and insurance inspection reports.
If you own a commercial vehicle, such as a truck, trailer, bus, or any other type, you must have a current certificate and decal on your vehicle after inspection to avoid having to pay fines and penalties. You might need to get this inspection done annually or semi-annually, depending on the type of vehicle you own. Usually, smaller vehicles carrying less load are inspected every year, while bigger vehicles such as buses get them done twice a year.
When we inspect your vehicle, some of the things we check include:
Checking the condition of your brakes, glass, steering, suspension, etc.
Checking your wheels for wear
Checking electricals and lighting
Checking exhaust and muffler systems
Checking the vehicle for broken boards, corrosion on the frame, etc.
Contact Amun Mechanical Inc. to get your vehicle inspected today.
Are you having trouble with your vehicle’s differentials? You’re not alone. It’s common in medium and heavy-duty trucks to have issues with the rear differentials of their truck, the gear which lets your wheels rotate at different speeds. This gear is especially important when driving a large vehicle and going through a turn, as it requires being able to move the wheels at different speeds and carefully control your position on the road. Amun Mechanical Inc. can help you identify the problems and fix your differentials so that you can get back on the road quickly.
If you’re wondering whether it’s your differentials causing you trouble or some other part, here are some things you can look out for:
Howling If you hear a howling noise, this might be due to a lot of wear on your differentials. This howling might occur when you’re travelling at high speeds or even all the time.
Rumbling A rumbling or whirring sound might occur due to wear on your carrier or wheel bearings and might be a sign that you need to get them replaced.
Banging If you’re hearing a clicking or banging sound, it might be due to broken gears, wear in clutches, or even lack or too little lubrication. Depending on how often you hear these clucking sounds, the problem can be identified.
Vibrations A vehicle that is vibrating more than the norm or steadily increasing in relation to the speed can be a sign that you need to get your vehicle checked for wear and other issues such as an out-of-balance driveshaft.
If you’ve heard strange sounds from your differentials, bring your vehicle to us at Amun Mechanical Inc., and we’ll have it sorted out in no time.
A lot of owners of diesel-based vehicles delete their diesel particulate filters (DPFs) to improve performance, decrease the usage of fuel, and save money, among other reasons, such as giving their unit more power. DPFs can be very costly and high-maintenance, which is why many people choose to delete them and the after-treatment systems they’re included in. Once they are deleted, the ECU is reprogrammed to account for the sensors that are now missing. While doing this is legal in Calgary and Alberta, it might lead to voiding the manufacturer’s warranty for your vehicle, if applicable.
Though results may vary depending on the vehicle, a DPF delete usually leads to:
A decrease in maintenance costs
A decrease in maintenance and servicing hassles
Increase in engine life
Better fuel mileage
A DPF delete typically costs between $3,000 to $10,000. Contact Amun Mechanical Inc. today if you’re considering a DPF delete for your vehicle.
Engine repair and service are at the heart of vehicle repair. Being the one part of your vehicle that keeps it all running, engines are probably the part that suffers the most wear and abuse throughout their lives. Especially when driving heavy-duty commercial vehicles in the harsh Canadian winters, your engines are one of the most important parts that keep your vehicle functioning properly. That’s why, at Amun Mechanical Inc., we provide the services of some of the best mechanics in Calgary to help you ensure smooth functioning and driving.
From general repairs to maintenance programs, we provide everything you need to get back on the road. Our engine services include:
Total teardown and rebuilding

Repairs for fuel systems

It’s not just external dirt that you need to be worried about when it comes to your vehicle; internal dirt, especially when it comes to diesel-based vehicles, is an even bigger worry. It’s important to ensure that your engine and other parts of your vehicle are clean internally so that there is no corrosion, clogs, and more happening due to dirt. Diesel, while refined for use in vehicles, is still not clean enough to be completely rid of impurities and can cause tanks to get contaminated and dirty.
Not just tanks, but even other parts of your vehicle can suffer from dirt and corrosion, such as coolers, induction systems, etc. At Amun Mechanical Inc., we can help you deal with all the internal dirt and ensure that your engine is working smoothly, safely, and is cleaner than ever with our fuel flushing services.
The more frequently you use your clutch while driving, the more wear and stress it causes to the different parts of your vehicle’s machinery. This can lead to clutch failures and the need for more frequent servicing than required due to the unnecessary strain put on your vehicle and the friction damage caused by the usage of your clutch. If you’re having trouble with your clutch, Amun Mechanical Inc. can help correct the issues and put maintenance programs in place to ensure your vehicle is good-to-go for a long time.
While maintenance and servicing at the shop are always there, here are some things to watch out for and keep in mind to ensure the longevity of your clutch:
Don’t rest your foot on the clutch while driving, as it causes unnecessary wear on the clutch and can cause slippage.
See if you’re using the gear shift and the clutch correctly, especially if you’re new to driving a manual transmission or heavy-duty fleet vehicles.
Check if there are any strange clucking noises when you use your clutch or jerking when you move between gears. This could mean a problem you should get checked out before it becomes big enough to require replacement.
The powertrain is an important part of your vehicle, be it commercial or otherwise, that provides a force to your wheels to help the vehicle move forward or backward. Without this component in working condition, your vehicle can’t move. It’s especially important for commercial vehicles to have a powertrain in good working condition, as that is what ensures that you are able to transport freight and travel for hours upon time without issues. There are a lot of reasons why your powertrain might not be working, from accidents to general wear and tear to poor maintenance. If you’re facing issues with your powertrain, schedule a service with Amun Mechanical Inc. to get back on the road again.
It’s not enough to get your vehicle repaired when facing troubles or send it into servicing once in a while when you think it’s required. Especially for commercial vehicles that must always be in a reliable working condition, it’s important that you regularly get your vehicle checked for anything that could lead to malfunction or an emergency when you’re on the road. Our preventative maintenance program at Amun Mechanical Inc. can help you spot problems before they become big, saving you unnecessary costs on repairs and replacements that were actually avoidable.
At Amun Mechanical Inc., we can help you make a scheduled maintenance plan that works for your schedule and also keeps your vehicles or fleet on the road for longer. When you approach us for this service, we will create a plan that will cover your entire fleet and that all your vehicles in that fleet are accounted for with an individual maintenance schedule according to its make, life, and requirements. We also account for any special cases or vehicles your fleet might include that require their own separate maintenance plan.
Properly maintained vehicles reduce unscheduled repair and downtime. The purpose of preventive maintenance is to extend the life of a vehicle or equipment by predicting and preventing failures. The implementation of the process leads to reliable and efficient vehicle performance and cuts down on unscheduled repair and breakdown. This process includes inspection, computer scanning, and oil analysis.
Amun Mechanical Inc.’s mechanics can perform a complete inspection of these components:
Wiring and electrical
5th wheels and attachments
Scan fault codes and collect history
Diagnose leaks and source of the leak
Inspect all hydraulic component functions
Inspect hoses, fittings, electrical harnesses
Inspect for tire wear/damage and tire pressure
Oil sample testing for major components such as engines, transmissions differentials, final drives, and hydraulic systems enables us to foresee parts failure within these systems such as pumps, bearings, seals, gears, etc. This preventative maintenance tool is a preferred method to monitor the system at regular intervals with the purpose of determining not only the number of particles present in the oil but also the rate of increase, which is used to prepare for component failure before it happens.
A routine oil analysis consists of the following tests:
Solid sediment and water
Certain specific cases also call for acid number and/or base number. Oil analysis is recommended every three months.
