What to Expect from Preventative Commercial Truck Maintenance
Preventative maintenance can make your vehicle last longer and function better throughout the time that you own it. Some types of maintenance can even prevent you from getting into an accident by helping you stop sooner or making you more visible to other drivers. In a basic preventative maintenance inspection, there are several things that the inspector will look at.
The treat on your tires is an important part of your vehicle. Tires that don’t have very much tread left on them are more prone to hydroplaning, stopping problems, and skidding on the road. They’re also more prone to blowouts and other dangerous events.
Tires are also inspected for cuts and tears, pressure, and mismatched tires. Wheels are inspected to ensure that there aren’t cracks in the wheels and that the lugs are all present and properly tightened.
Your oil must be changed at the manufacturer’s scheduled intervals to ensure that your engine is well lubricated. During a standard oil change, there are several things that are also inspected and changed as needed. For instance, your filter often needs replacement when your oil is changed. The technician will also inspect the vehicle for oil leaks, and the coolant, transmission fluid, differential fluid, brake fluid, windshield washer, and power steering fluid are also inspected to ensure that they’re at the right levels and are clean and have the right viscosity.
There are several components under the vehicle that should be maintained, too. For instance, the suspension and steering should be checked. To make sure that your drivetrain will be in working order for the next several thousand miles, the u-joints and slip yokes are also inspected for routine maintenance.
Other Items to Inspect
You or a technician should also regularly inspect the vehicle for any physical damage to the body to ensure that all of the external components are still in working order. Along with that, all of the lights should be routinely checked to ensure that there isn’t any physical damage and that the bulbs are working. Finally, the license plate should be inspected to ensure that it’s visible and has everything that it needs to comply with state laws.
