Check the Belts

There are a lot of moving parts in an engine, and many of them rely on belts to keep working. After a while, the drive belt or serpentine belt needs to be tightened or replaced. When the engine squeals upon starting up, that is usually a sign that the belt is loose. Cracks or tears in the belt are also signs that it should be replaced.

 

Replace the Battery

The batteries in your trucks last 3 to 5 years on average. You don’t want to wait until the battery dies and the engine won’t start to find out that you need to replace it. To avoid dead batteries, check them periodically to ensure that they can still hold a charge. You should also regularly clean the contacts so there are no difficulties starting the engine.

 

Replace Worn Out Brake Pads

Trucks are heavy vehicles, and you do not want inertia to take over if the brakes are inadequate. Brake pads generally last between 30,000 and 70,000 miles. Check them regularly to ensure that they are in good condition and can continue to perform adequately.
