How do you take care of a pickup truck?

USA-1 is the local driver's first choice to find used trucks for sale near you. Our used car dealer in Elkhart features an unrivaled selection of dependable truck options. Whether you're looking for a compact or diesel truck for sale, USA-1 has you covered. After you select the most suitable used truck for sale, we can even help you keep it in great condition. Our Elkhart dealership would like to review our best tips for maintaining any used truck. 

What is basic maintenance for a truck?

Here are the top ten maintenance services required for every used truck for sale near you. Remember, our used car dealer in Elkhart also offers a top-notch service department!

  • Fluid level check. Keeping an eye on the level of the many fluids that support your vehicle is crucial. If there's a dramatic drop in fluid levels between service appointments, that's a major red flag that a component may be leaking.

  • Fluid change. How often you'll need to replace your fluids will depend on your driving habits. Follow your manufacturer's suggested maintenance plan. It's better to invest in frequent fluid changes, rather than allow the fluids to degrade and cause problems.

  • Check pressure of tires. The used trucks for sale near you tend to exert additional pressure on their tires, especially compared to a sedan. Since your tires are the connecting point between your vehicle and the road, it's imperative to keep them in great shape. The service team at our used car dealer in Elkhart will ensure you have the appropriate amount of tire pressure.

  • Check tire condition. Just like tire pressure, used trucks for sale also wear down their tires at an accelerated rate. If your tire wear is uneven, it can indicate issues with your truck's suspension. Avoid dangerous blow-out situations by servicing your used truck near you on a regular basis!

  • Brake inspection. When your diesel truck for sale is carrying a heavy load, it's vital to have responsive brakes. Our service team will check for signs of wear, and replace your brake pads before they begin to degrade.

  • Air filter replacement. Improve your truck's fuel economy, allowing your engine to reach peak performance. Air filters will need to be changed more often if you live or work in a dusty environment.

  • Check battery, alternator, and electrical systems. For long-haul drivers, it's critical to maintain a functioning electrical system. Our Elkhart dealership will help you avoid problems with charging the components in your truck.

 

Maintaining a used truck for sale near you doesn't need to be complicated. You can trust the team at our used car dealer in Elkhart to help your truck last to its maximum lifespan!
