Importance of Preventative Maintenance
Have you ever been caught in an unexpected breakdown? Your heavy-duty truck hums smoothly on the road, but then smoke starts escaping your hood out of nowhere. A malfunction happens.

What Goes Into Preventive Maintenance?
A preventive maintenance check is not just your run-of-the-mill oil change. It is a detailed examination that includes but is not limited to:
Oil Filters: Regularly changing them can extend your engine’s lifespan. Ignore them, and you will grind away your engine's longevity and components.
Tire Inspections: Tire inspections are essential to preventative maintenance because they can cause inefficiencies for your vehicle. Uneven tire tread, punctures, or lack of tread will reduce fuel economy, lower truck longevity, and risk driver safety. We ensure that your tires meet necessary road standards for our community safety.
Coolant Levels: This one is a lifesaver, especially in sweltering summers and freezing winters. Incorrect levels can cause overheating or freezing.
Diagnostics: With the JPRO for cutting-edge diagnostic and troubleshooting services. This tool is equally effective for road vehicles and industrial machinery, offering a thorough, end-to-end overview of your vehicle's status. Critical service records and targeted troubleshooting advice are neatly displayed for your convenience.
Crankshaft Bearings: The bearings prevent friction with the help of oil. Neglect them, and you may compromise other aspects of your heavy-duty truck. A spun rod, for example, is the crankshaft bearing and oil issue that may cause costly damage to your engine. The lack of lubrication causes friction and heat, so the bearings weld into the crankshaft.
