TOOL REVIEW

Diesel Laptops TEXA
Truck Tool with
Level 3 Support
The reviewer is pleased with
the tool's ability to scan several
different software systems.

With each passing year, the technology
within vehicles is increasing, creating more
complicated systems and issues that a wrench
alone may not be able to fix. Technicians need
tools on the same level as the problems they
are solving, so the diagnostic tools they
use must keep up with vehicle technology.
Diesel Laptops' TEXA Truck Tool with Level 3
Support provides technicians with the ability
to stay up-to-date.

manager at Red Classic Transit in Charlotte,
North Carolina, is pleased with how the tool

nostic jobs.
Though the software is fairly intuitive,
any new tool - especially a diagnostic tool
- can take some getting used to before its
full potential can be reached.
"Once you get past the learning curve, it's
pretty simple," Summerlin says. "I had technicians that were able to figure it out with
little training."
The TEXA Truck Tool Support package did
not come with a manual, but Diesel Laptops
offers online training once a week as well
as the video training that comes with the
purchase. The video training helps users navigate through the software, Summerlin says.
His favorite part of the tool is that, "when
you connect it, it scans the entire vehicle not
just the engine or [transmission]," he says. "It
looks at everything."

TOOL REVIEW

Cojali Jaltest

Plug-and-play functionality and
attention to detail elevate this diagnostic
system in the reviewer's eyes.
Heavy duty commercial vehicles are typically more complex than passenger cars. This
complex nature can make diagnosing any of
their many systems complicated. That's why
Dax Acor, shop lead at FleetPride in Idaho
Falls, Idaho, finds Cojali's Jaltest diagnostic
system to be such a time saver for his shop.
"It's a plug-in-and-identify-everything
kind of deal," Acor says. "[Jaltest] self-identifies every module on the truck ... it's almost
easier to hook up and identify what kind of
systems you have versus getting on a creeper
and looking for the module."
As the Jaltest software identifies each
module, Acor says it also pulls any codes from
each one and condenses the information into
a user-friendly page.
"It ... links to each module and then pulls

the codes ... and then it brings up one full
home screen of all the modules that you
have," he says.
In addition to providing fault codes, Acor
says Jaltest allows him to test any number of
vehicle systems as well.
If Acor is not able to figure out what is
causing a problem on his own, he uses the
Jaltest troubleshooting tool. It provides pinout
diagrams, wire numbers, schematics - virtually anything necessary to work on the truck,
he says.
Acor says that in addition to the troubleshooting tool, the Jaltest software contains
training videos, frequently asked questions, and other resources to help technicians become familiar with the system's
functionalities.

designed for the client
that wants a complete
"hands-off" approach
to the entire TEXA kit,
the company says. The
package gives technicians complete support
for everything with
their TEXA system and
provides a new laptop
every three years. This
package includes 12
months of updates for
TEXA Truck Software,
basic support for connection and software
related issues, and
100 percent warranty
coverage on your laptop
