Tips to Keep Your Truck Running Well Into Old Age – Part 2

In our previous blog, Bp Auto Spares India has mentioned 3 important tips that can help you run your truck smoothly into old age. Let’s take this journey forward with few more interesting nicks and knacks.

Leyland Spare Parts

Tire Rotation: If you don’t want to spend a fortune on your truck’s new set of tires then you better pay attention to their current condition. In the last blog’s last point we told about the driving conditions you subject your truck to can significantly contribute to its wear and tear. If you expose all the tires to the same conditions, the wear and tear each tire will get will be entirely different because of the truck’s driving train. The front tires wear out first and the most. Badly worn tires can affect the suspension and alignment of the truck. When you change the oil in your truck, rotate the tires along with it. It will prolong their life span and provide a smoother ride.

Balance the tires: Balancing the tires implies dispensing their weight evenly around the axle. As we have mentioned in the above point, not all tires undergo the same proportion of wear and tear. The same is applicable to balancing. Get the balance in your tires inspected when you rotate them or during a regular check-up.

Check Fluid Levels: Apart from engine oil levels, there are other fluids in your truck which needs to be at a level as prescribed by the manufacturer for a smooth drive. Regularly check if the oil, coolant, windscreen washer fluid are at their most appropriate levels or not.

Check the alignment: Driving trucks at high speed and on rough and even terrains can lead to misalignment. Improper tire pressure is another major reason for misalignment. It is noticeable when your truck inclines to one side while driving. Misalignment can cause your tires to wear out faster and cause issues like poor handling and declined fuel efficiency. Get your truck’s alignment checked next time when you take your truck for service.

The Tire: The minimum tread depth as approved by the law is 1.6mm across the central ¾ of the tire, all the way around. Less can earn you a hefty fine per tire. Get your tires filled up at a garage. If the pressure is wrong you’ll burn more fuel. Accurate tire pressure and you are set for the journey.

The Spare Tire: Having a flat tire is bad, but what is worse is when you have no spare tire or a spare that is missing, flat or damaged. So before taking your car for a long drive, check the jack,its handle and the wheel brace.

The Windscreen Water Bottle: Top up your windscreen water bottle before you leave for a long journey.

Just check these 5 things and you are all set to go on a long trip.
