Preventative Maintenance FAQS
What is preventative maintenance on a truck?
Preventative maintenance on a truck is services performed before they are needed in order to prolong the vehicle’s lifespan and keep its performance consistent. Overall, preventative maintenance is designed to prevent common mechanical failures, improving uptime along with vehicle and driver safety. Preventative maintenance includes services like oil changes, transmission service, lubrication of joints and bushings, proactive filter and host replacement, and scheduled brake jobs.
How often should preventive maintenance be done?
The optimal frequency will be determined by the vehicle owner. In general, every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, the vehicle should see some sort of service. At the very least, oil changes will be needed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles for light-duty vehicles, and most lube shops will check other fluid levels and lubrication needs as well.
What is a preventive maintenance checklist?
A preventative maintenance checklist is a predetermined set of tasks that a technician or mechanic needs to complete in sequence, to be able to finish a request for preventative maintenance. During this inspection, things like fluid levels, tire tread depth, brake condition, air filter condition, and the condition of belts and hoses will be checked. The technician performing the maintenance will sign off on the checklist that everything was addressed.
What are examples of preventive maintenance?
The most common examples of preventative maintenance include:
- Oil and coolant should be checked monthly, or before long trips.
- The air filter should be free-flowing and unrestricted and should be replaced if clogged with debris.
- Tread depth and tire pressure should be checked.
- Oil changes should be done every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, according to your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
- Tire rotation should be done periodically throughout the life of the tires.
- Transmission fluid should be checked and changed every 50,000 miles.
