Over 25,000 Flooded Trucks end up on other Dealership’s Front Lines!
Did you know that a few cheap, quick repairs can make a flood-damaged truck look good again? The average truck buyer may not know the signs of a vehicle that has been under water, giving a perfect opportunity for dishonest sellers to make large profits! Over 25,000 trucks flood-damaged by recent storms are being sold to unsuspecting buyers every year!
A water-logged vehicle will not last long and will likely be forever plagued with problems that will require COSTLY repairs, IF they can be fixed at all.
FACT - many car buyers will never even question whether the used vehicle they are considering to buy may have had flood damage. While some flooded vehicles have their titles marked as salvaged, MANY uninsured vehicles end up slipping through the cracks and are deceptively reconditioned to look as though they were never flooded. This is especially easy when the average truck buyer does not know to carefully inspect the components that would indicate water damage. Computer systems and electrical mechanisms of your truck are connected by a vast series of wires. After a vehicle has been submerged in water for any length of time, moisture gets trapped in and over time, will slowly rust the wiring causing major malfunctions. This failure will seriously risk the safety of anyone in the vehicle and could affect the fuel system, steering, brakes and airbags just to name a few. This complex series of wires is very difficult and expensive to replace so often times a dishonest seller will simply cover the wires with new carpet and turn a blind eye.
Don’t let your next truck be a ticking time bomb! We at Gibson Truck World thoroughly inspect each certified truck for flood damage!

Oil or black sludge is a solid or gel in motor oil caused by the oil gelling or solidifying. As the gel settles in the engine, it actually stores heat instead of providing the cooling necessary for your engine. Sludge is the thickening and breakdown of the oil as it deteriorates, and as moisture and contaminants build up. Oil sludge can be a major contributor to internal combustion engine problems, and can require the engine to be replaced, if the damage is severe. Any engine can develop sludge if maintenance is not properly kept up - particularly if scheduled oil changes were not made during the vehicle’s formative years. It is almost like clogged arteries, you look good on the outside, but you don’t know what is going on the inside. Engine failure due to oil gelling is very expensive, and can be difficult to keep under control.
The best ways to prevent sludge are:
1. Change your oil as often as recommended by your vehicle’s manufacture for maximum protection (usually every three to six months or 3,000 miles)
2. Replace the PCV (crankcase ventilation) valve every 30K miles.
3. Never drive with an overheated motor, repair the cooling system and replace the oil immediately.
4. Cooling systems should be serviced more often than manufacturer's specs.
5. Purchase at Gibson Truck World for peace of mind with our 12 Month Bumper to Bumper Warranty, 12 Months Free Maintenance and our 15 Day Return Policy.
