Truck Engine Service

Cat Engine ServiceWhether hauling bulk material or general freight, Holt Power Systems has the right engine for you. Cat produces some of the most advanced truck engines available with the broadest product line. They are backed by the largest support system in the industry.

Built on the success of mechanical engines like the 3406C and electronic engines like the 3406E, Cat Diesel Power has built a reputation for low cost of ownership and operation. Cat truck engines are born of a sophisticated manufacturing process that ensures product quality and long life while meeting all emissions requirements and achieving excellent fuel economy. Available in all major truck manufacturers’ chassis, Cat power is your choice for dependable, long lasting and easy to maintain engines.

The Caterpillar Electronic Control Module (ECM) is a state-of-the-art system based on proven, award-winning technology. Maximizing fuel economy and performance, the Cat ECM provides enhanced diagnostics for service personnel, increased driver information and business management tools through satellite communication or Caterpillar Fleet Information Software.

Your OEM truck dealer can answer most questions about Cat Truck Engines. Holt Power Systems’ Truck Engine Account Managers (TEAMs) are skilled in spec’ing your truck from the engine right through to the rear axles. By using computer technology, they can analyze the effectiveness of variations in engine horsepower and torque, drivetrain arrangements and tires to suit your application.

Whether you are an owner/operator or a fleet manager, you can be confident that you have selected the best combination of components for your application.

Our TEAMs can also discuss other options with you such as Extended Service Coverage (ESC) or the Truck Owner Protection Plan (TOPP), a program where maintenance and repair costs are guaranteed. We even assist in driver training efforts.

Our Parts and Service Representative can assist you in setting up effective preventive maintenance schedules customized to your fleet to help you avoid unnecessary down time. They can also help you plan "before failure" repairs according to your schedule.

With 50 dedicated truck engine service bays in Holt’s seven full-service truck facilities, over 60 authorized Truck Engine Parts and Service dealers in South Texas and a total of over 2,500 Cat service centers in North America, we’re where you need us to be.

We offer a flat rate pricing structure on common maintenance and repairs, from valve adjustments to complete engine overhauls. Not only do our flat rates make budgeting easier, but they also put you in control of when and where repairs are done.

For in-frame overhauls, the Cat Overhaul Protection for Trucks (OPT) Program is available to ensure your investment. OPT provides 100% parts and labor coverage on your overhaul and is backed by the Caterpillar nationwide parts and service network.

In addition to overhauls, Holt has many other cost effective options from which to choose. Cat Remanufactured Engines include a new engine warranty and are typically priced 40 percent less than new replacement engines.

Our truck engine service technicians are able to constantly update their knowledge with specific training on the newest products. Using both hands-on and classroom-style settings, our technicians are exposed to the latest service techniques.

For testing and diagnosis, Holt Power Systems operates two state-of-the-art full Chassis Dynamometers to perform anything from a basic horsepower check, to a complete Caterpillar Performance Analysis Report (PAR). This computerized truck testing facility utilizes large floor-mounted drums to operate a truck at highway speeds without ever leaving our facility.

Expertly staffed, and backed by superior parts availability, our truck shops and your nearby TEPS dealer stand ready to handle your needs quickly and professionally.
