Maintaining your Freight Truck


Maintaining a freight truck is essential in being successful in the trucking industry. Without a properly functioning vehicle, truck drivers will be unable to successfully deliver their shipments on time because of breakdowns. In order to keep your truck functioning at its best ability, consider these truck maintenance tips.

  1. Always check your oil before heading out on the road. Leaving your oil levels low while traveling on the road could lead to major engine failures, which can cause major accidents.
  2. Have your air filter checked for any clogs or other signs of damage.
  3. Check your tire pressure before driving any long distances. Low tire pressure could place you at risk for a blowout.
  4. Check any lights that could be up on your dashboard, which could signal a need for major maintenance. You should also check your turning signals as well as your fog lights, tail lights, and headlights. Not having proper lighting can make traveling during evening hours or poor weather difficult.
  5. Aside from your oil levels, you should also have the levels of your other fluids checked as well to ensure proper function.
