Important Truck Maintenance Tips

truck maintenance tips, commercial truck, truck repair

Whether you own a personal vehicle or drive a commercial truck, its life greatly depends on how well you maintain it. Regular maintenance keeps you away from potential major repairs and replacements. To make sure your truck remains in the best of conditions, we have listed a few tips you can follow to maintain it.

Engine Oils
Lubricants are an important part of every vehicle. In trucks, however, the impact on performance is greater. If you want to keep your truck in the best condition, make sure you change it after every five thousand miles. This is important because engine oils accrue debris and get contaminated. The same issue arises with your engine filters as well. You can clean those filters far more frequently—once a month—to enjoy the best performance behind the wheels.

Keep Rotating Tires
If you want to prolong the life of your tires, just keep rotating them. Trucks carry heavy loads and normally travel longer distances than regular automobiles—after all, this is what they’re designed to do. This wears off the condition of their tires. Now, if they wear off unevenly, it truly deteriorates you driving experience behind the wheels. So, by rotating them on and off, you allow every tire to bear similar loads in different positions, allowing them to wear off more evenly. In other words, they will last longer!

Engine Coolant
It is of utmost importance that you manage the fluid levels of your truck well. In addition to the engine oils. a very important engine fluid is the engine coolant. Since trucks produce a lot of heat, they have cooling fluids to keep the temperatures maintained. Make sure you get it refilled to keep the engine from overheating.

Wheel Alignment
Since trucks normally carry heavy loads, there is a very good chance that they lose their wheel alignment. This normally happens while driving on damaged asphalt or other off-road conditions. Aggressive driving is also often the reason. Not only do misaligned wheels bring down the control you have behind the wheel, they also make you prone to road accidents.

What If It’s Too Late?
If you haven’t been following these truck maintenance tips, you don’t have to worry! All you have to do is bring your truck to a qualified professional who can get your truck back on track. In fact, it is always advised that you bring your truck in for periodic repairs and a complete maintenance every once in a while. This will ensure that your truck remains in a perfect condition throughout the year.

Fortunately, there are companies that offer their expertise in the area, allowing truck owners to have their personal and commercial truck repaired.

TESTIMONIALS

“I’m in the Coffee and Refreshment business, not fleet management. It was a relief the day that I turned things over to Fleet Care. The quick turn around on repairs keeps my drivers efficient and productive by not forcing them to waste time loading and unloading their trucks. The repair and maintenance records that they provide help me to determine which trucks to keep and which to dispose of during our bi-annual fleet audit. Their free pick-up and delivery is a life-saver and they also notify me of warranty repairs and help transport to and from dealerships for these types of repairs. The benefits that Fleet Care provide have reduced my headaches, strengthened my bottom line and allowed us to grow our business."
