While your commercial truck is under warranty or a special maintenance program there isn’t really to much to worry about. It’s pretty straightforward. Like a car, you schedule your next service appointment and bring your truck in. Your local dealer pretty much takes care of the rest, but what about after the maintenance plan expires.
Now you’re on your own. Business is booming and bringing the truck in for maintenance becomes cumbersome. There are deadlines to meet and deliveries to make. There are a few things you, as a truck owner can do to help keep your truck healthy and on the road running efficiently.

• First, check all of the warning and information labels that are placed on the dashboard, in the door jam and in a few other locations on your truck. These are placed on your vehicle by the manufacturer and are helpful in knowing what needs to be done.
• Second, check fluid levels. There are reservoirs with fill levels that are easily accessible and a quick check can help to make sure you don’t find yourself on the road and running out of some important fluid that helps your truck run optimally. Most important are Fuel, Oil, Water and DEF fluid.
• Third, top off any fluids that need to be filled and/or replace any dirty, contaminated fluids. Remember, the fill levels are on the reservoir. Pay attention to these and only use the recommended products/brands (these can be found on the labels mentioned earlier.
