Embracing a proactive maintenance strategy is among the most effective means to extend your truck's lifespan and avert unforeseen breakdowns. Accelerated Fleet Services specializes in providing mobile inspections, maintenance, and repairs for your truck, all designed to minimize downtime and enhance your operational efficiency.
Regularly changing your oil and fluids is a critical part of preventive maintenance. Here's a breakdown of components that need oil and fluid for lubrication and cooling purposes.
Your transmission plays a crucial role in optimizing the power generated by your engine. To ensure your transmission functions at its best by maintaining an appropriate operating temperature, regular fluid changes are essential. Accelerated Fleet Services caters to fleet managers in the Dallas-Fort Worth vicinity with a range of transmission services, including thorough flushes and routine fluid replacements. Whether your transmission is holding onto old fluid in need of a flush or you simply require a routine fluid change, trust us to handle the task.
Typically, the recommended interval for a transmission fluid change falls between 30,000 to 60,000 miles. However, this interval may vary depending on the specific usage and demands of your truck.
Is your heavy-duty truck equipped with a powered front axle? If it is, you probably have a transfer case. Transfer cases play a crucial role in diverting power to the front axle, providing additional traction and enhancing off-road capabilities. Just like your transmission, transfer cases require fluid for lubrication and cooling. It's important to note that this fluid should be replaced every 30 to 60 thousand miles to ensure optimal performance.
In your diesel engine, oil plays a crucial role in lubricating internal components, while coolant helps regulate the engine block's temperature. Regularly changing these fluids is essential to prevent potentially catastrophic engine failures. Typically, heavy-duty truck engine oil is replaced approximately every 20,000 miles, while coolant is refreshed around every 60,000 miles. However, it's important to note that these service intervals might vary based on your specific truck's usage and needs.
The gears within your differential are in constant motion, and to prevent friction, they need proper lubrication. This lubricating fluid is distributed to both your differentials and axle shafts since they share a common housing. It's crucial to schedule a gear oil change approximately every 30,000 to 60,000 miles to maintain optimal performance.
