Tips & Advice

Our Recommended Tips & Advice
  1. How often should I rotate my tires?

    It is not recommended to rotate tires on a tractor, but we recommend balancing and checking the alignment of your tractor tires to help them last longer.

  2. What does it mean if my check engine or service engine soon light comes on?

    There are many sensors and computerized components that manage your vehicle’s engine performance and emissions. When one of these fails, the check engine light is illuminated. Although your vehicle may seem to run fine, it is important to have the issue addressed to prevent long-term problems or failure of emission tests.

  3. What should I do if my truck starts to overheat?

    This is a very serious problem. If your truck overheats for too long, you can damage your engine. Find a safe place to pull off the road and shut off the engine as soon as possible. Do not attempt to check the fluid level in the radiator as it can burn you. The best thing to do is have your truck towed to a repair shop.

  4. When should I get my oil changed?

    You should get your oil changed every 10,000-15,000 miles or as recommended in your vehicle’s owner’s manual. If intervals are extended, ensure you use oil that is capable of extended mileage changes.

  5. What is synthetic motor oil?

    Synthetic motor oils are made of artificial materials. They can be a good choice for high output, turbocharged or supercharged engines, vehicles that are used for towing (especially during hot weather) or vehicles that are operated in extremely cold or hot climates. Synthetic motor oils, though several times more expensive than mineral-based motor oils, can improve fuel economy and provide longer intervals between changes. They also provide instant lubrication on start-up.

  6. When should I replace my fleet vehicle’s fuel filter?

    To help ensure dependable, trouble-free performance, replace your vehicle’s fuel filter approximately every other service or as recommended in your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
