• Diesel Parts and Diesel Repair Updates - November 2020

    Since our launch early this month we've been working hard to make sure our Diesel Parts and Diesel Repair platforms deliver the best possible parts and repair information available online.

    During the month we've received amazing feedback, and so today we want to share with you some exciting new features we think you'll love. 

    Diesel Parts Updates

    The first thing you'll notice is our new search button for parts search, so make sure you click it to begin your search.

    Along with the button, our software team has been working hard to make sure every search is faster and more accurate, and now with 10 results per page instead of 5 you'll be able to find what you need much faster.

    Parts Crosses

    Direct and Indirect crosses are now more prominently labeled.  Direct & Indirect Crosses
    • Direct crosses are ones we know with 100% certainty. We obtained them from the manufacturers.
    • Indirect crosses are ones we know with 95%+ certainty. They both cross to the same OEM number, they both have the same/similar parts description, so we are confident they're the same.

    Filter by Manufacturer

    We've added a new manufacturer drop-down from the search results so you can find the brand you prefer inside your results.

    Filter by Manufacturer

    Exploded Views

    In our Exploded Views module, certain parts can be purchased individually or by the kit. You can now click “show components” or “hide components” to change the view and more clearly see the relationship.

    My Documents

    Now you can save and view your documents during your session foe easy viewing later. Just choose "My Documents" from the user menu inside the app and you'll have access to this feature.
