If you’re thinking about purchasing or looking for ways to best care for your truck, this post by AMSOIL: Ace Hi Oil in Southlake might pique your interest. Read this post to learn more about truck maintenance

Take It in for Service

The first step in truck maintenance is knowing when and what service you should take your truck in for. It’s essential to keep this in mind as many manufacturers require a certain amount of maintenance done on vehicles to hold up their warranties. You should take your truck in for essential maintenance every 10,000 to 20,000 miles, and it includes inspecting brakes and lights and basic oil and lubricant refilling. After that basic service, you should perform full maintenance every 30,000 miles. This maintenance will include:
  • Changing fluids like oil and lubricants
  • Changing filters for oil and fuel
  • Inspecting the brakes
  • Aligning, rotating, and examining your truck’s tires
  • Making sure lights and electrics are in working order
  • Repairing any issues.
Pro tip: Every manufacturer is different, and your owner’s manual is always the most trustworthy place to check for the recommended mileage or time for services.

Regular truck maintenance is the best way to make sure it will be reliable for miles and miles. The excellent products from Ace Hi Oil, like the AMSOIL Oil Filter, can help you do just that.

Keep an Eye on Your Truck’s Fluids

Fluids are essential to your truck’s functioning. That’s why keeping an eye on their levels and cleanliness should be a part of your maintenance routine. The fluids you should inspect regularly are engine oil, coolant, power steering fluid, windshield washer, and brake fluid. Change your engine oil every 25,000 miles for heavy-duty vehicles and around 5,000 for lighter-duty vehicles. Still, some manufacturers suggest you do it more often if you’re towing heavy loads or if you ride off-road regularly. Ensure that coolant levels are at the indicated level to prevent damage to your engine caused by freezing or boiling. Power steering fluid helps decrease the power needed to steer your truck, and you should top it off when you notice your vehicle is harder to steer. Likewise, topping off your brake fluid is essential as it helps your brake system work properly. Finally, windshield washer fluid isn’t vital to the working of your vehicle but can be helpful when trying to get bugs and other debris off your windshield.

Change Your Filters

Changing your filters can help your truck to be more efficient. Clean air is essential for your truck to work at its optimal performance. Your oil filter’s task is catching dust, debris, and other contaminants that could make your oil dirty and transport it into your engine. Ensure your engine is only getting clean air by changing your filter as often as you do an oil change or as often as your owner’s manual suggests.

Make sure to keep up with your truck maintenance for smoother trips. Call the experts at Ace Hi Oil at (888) 459-9958 for advice on the best products for your engine like AMSOIL's Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil, or visit their online store 24/7 to place your order.

Inspect Your Tires

Inspecting your tires is also an essential part of your truck maintenance. Keep an eye on the threads and make sure they don’t look too worn. Your truck can use many types of tires, from all-terrain to heavy-duty tires, and their characteristics might vary, but it’s always a good idea to look out for bulges and cracks on the surface, as well as any flatness. Your tires should also be properly inflated for better performance and can help improving fuel mileage. Taking in your truck for tire rotation, alignment and balancing can help your tires wear more evenly and help them last longer.

Keep Your Truck Clean

Finally, keeping your truck clean isn’t just an aesthetic choice. Cleaning your truck can protect the exterior from deterioration caused by dirt and dust. Make sure to wash your truck with automobile detergent only to avoid damaging the protective layers on top of your truck’s paint. Also, when cleaning your truck, make sure to clean the undercarriage that can hold a lot of dirt, mud, and debris from the road or off-roading.
