5 Important Points For Truck Maintenance
Change the oil filter regularly
The oil quality of different grades of lubricating oils will change during use. After a certain mileage in the vehicle, performance deteriorates, possibly causing various problems to the engine.
When the oil passes through the pores of the oil filter element, the solid particles and viscous substances in the oil are accumulated in the filter. If the filter is blocked, the oil will not pass through the filter element smoothly, it will burst the filter element or open the safety valve, pass through the bypass valve, and still bring the dirt back to the lubrication part, which will accelerate the wear of the engine and increase the internal pollution. Therefore, regular replacement of the oil filter is equally important.
Clean the intake duct
If the vehicle often travels in areas with more dust and poor air quality, you should pay attention to cleaning the intake duct to ensure smooth intake.
The intake duct is very important for the normal operation of the engine. If the intake duct is too dirty, the efficiency will drop, so that the engine cannot operate within the normal output power range, which will aggravate the wear and aging of the engine. Try to avoid dusty areas as much as possible, and at the same time, pay attention to replacing the air conditioning grid.
Wash the Truck
A fresh and clean heavy truck can always bring a different good mood to drivers and friends. If there is hard dust and mud on the body, first soak it with water, then rinse it off with water, and then use a soft and clean sponge to lift it from the top. Scrub on the ground. When scrubbing, wash the sponge in clean water frequently to avoid scratches on the paint surface, and finally wipe off the water marks with chamois. In case of oil stains, use a sponge dipped in kerosene or gasoline to wipe gently, and then apply polishing paste to the wiped area to make it as shiny as ever.
There is also the cleaning of the interior of the cab. Card friends should first use a dust washer to deal with the dust, and then soak it with a special textile cleaner for a few minutes. After the dust is dissolved, wipe it with a towel.
Clean the air filter regularly
The intake system of the engine is mainly composed of an air filter element and an intake duct. According to different usage conditions, the air filter element should be cleaned regularly. Generally, the air filter element should be replaced after three times of cleaning. The cleaning cycle can be determined by the air quality in the daily driving area. It is also important to purchase genuine air filters from good quality manufacturers.
Maintenance within the cycle
Regular maintenance of the engine is very important. According to data, failures caused by poor engine maintenance account for 50% of the total failures. It can be seen that engine maintenance can play a vital role in prolonging the service life of the vehicle.
It is not only necessary to maintain the engine during the regular maintenance period, but also to do some inspection and maintenance of the relevant parts of the engine when driving through some particularly humid or dusty areas.
