How to Properly Maintain your Engine

At T&A Truck Specialist, Inc in Tampa, FL, we understand that maintenance is the difference between a truck that makes it to the million-mile mark, and a truck that doesn’t come close. Here are some tips to keep your truck in shape for many miles to come.

Record your mileage and running hours between oil changes and other regular maintenance items. Keeping a detailed record allows you to know when it’s time for a fluid change, when to keep an eye on certain items, and gives you an idea of how often different things need to be done. Also keep a record of anything that needs to be fixed or inspected next time you bring your truck in for maintenance.

Before a long day, always inspect your truck. Check the oil, transmission fluid, and coolant levels, making sure they are all topped off and in good shape. Watch for milky oil, contaminated coolant, and burnt or cloudy transmission fluid. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, have it looked into immediately. While you’re at it, check for tire wear, ensuring there is sufficient tread to prevent a blowout and maintain handling and stopping ability. Pay attention to irregular wear or low tire pressure...if you notice either, it’s time to have it inspected. Watch for excessive smoke while the engine is running, and odd smells.

Whether you just need something looked into, or it’s time for an entire engine overhaul, T&A Truck Specialist, Inc has you covered. From alignments and oil changes to engine rebuilds, our team of professional mechanics are qualified and ready to provide you with excellent parts and customer service. Call or drop by anytime.
