The Unsung Heroes of Gulf Relay: Meet the Mechanics Who Keep the Wheels Turning

In this episode of The Relay, we take a little different turn as Sarah Williams catches up with our mechanics in the shop. We discuss common issues mechanics encounter such as lighting problems and check engine lights, and the importance of pre-trip inspections and routine maintenance. Don’t miss the discussion around the challenges of after-treatment systems on trucks and a story about a truck that caused a chain reaction of problems. Join us as we talk shop with some of our mechanics at Gulf Relay.
