Fall Routine Truck Maintenance

Kansas City Truck Repair strongly believes that following a good maintenance schedule is key to preserving the exceptional performance of your vehicle.  Therefore, we have created a list of seasonal tips for you.  Not only will sticking to a seasonal schedule provide an easy way to keep up with your routine truck maintenance, but it will also ensure that your trucks are running smoothly no matter what the Midwest weather has brought us!

Recommended Fall Services

Check Tire Tread and Replace if Necessary 
Special attention should be paid to the tread on your tires, especially for the gray, rainy days that often occur this time of year in MO & KS. Without sufficient tread depth, your vehicle can’t properly grip the road.  Under wet weather conditions, scarce tread depth can cause a vehicle to hydroplane which often leads to crashes.  Preventing it is simple because you can check your tread with just a penny

Radiator Flush
The coolant in your radiator doesn’t last forever and over time it can break down and start to corrode the inside of your radiator. This can lead to cooling problems and radiator repair. A radiator flush once a year is cheap insurance against radiator repairs.

Check your Headlights
Sometimes you don’t notice that you have a bulb out. Now’s a good time to take a look to see if you need to replace a headlight bulb. Not only is it unsafe to drive with one headlight, you can get a ticket!

Belts & Hoses
Have belts and hoses checked to ensure that belts are not worn and fittings are tight.

Check back with us at the beginning of winter to see our WINTER TIPS!
