We know time is money, that’s why we wanted to share our top 3 truck maintenance tips to help keep your truck running in peak condition. Check out Truckfix WA’s top 3 maintenance tips to keep you truck on the road longer.
Check your coolant and engine oil levels
With summer upon us, you need to ensure your coolant and engine oil levels are at the required levels. Don’t let your engine get to the point where it overheats.
One of the first things you should check is your engine oil and coolant levels. Consistent checks will help keep your engine running in tip top condition.
Check your brakes
Pulling heavy loads places a large strain on your brake system and can quickly cause wear and tear of your brakes.
If you hear your brakes making unusual noises, start to vibrate or notice the brake pad lining appears to be worn, bring your truck into Truckfix WA and we’ll give it a once over for you. At Truckfix WA, we check the state of your brakes as a priority.
Check your tyres
Damaged tyres are not only extremely dangerous to you, others on the road and your truck, they can cause costly downtime if not attended to. From a dangerous tyre blow out, to reduced fuel economy through low pressure, tyre maintenance is critical to keeping your truck running safely and economically.
Before hitting the road, check over your tyre condition and ensure they are good to go.
Preventative maintenance is key! If you’re unsure about any of the above tips, don’t think twice, call Truckfix WA and book you in to check over your truck, van or trailer.
