Like cars, semi trucks have manufacturer-recommended service intervals: mileage or time periods that manufacturers recommend servicing vehicle components. These intervals apply to common maintenance tasks like oil changes and alignment. They also apply to less common tasks like coolant replacements.
When you’ve been driving for a while, you develop a feel for your truck. When something’s going wrong, you know. But for regular maintenance, it’s just not something you can feel. Regular maintenance, or preventative maintenance, can be scheduled. You might not know when your regularly scheduled maintenance for your Mack or Volvo truck is, which is why we’re here to help. Use the handy chart below to help determine when it’s time to stop by to get some routine maintenance. When you’re not running a load or under a deadline, stop into a TEC Equipment location for regular servicing. Then your truck can get a check up, and our trained technicians can locate any small problems that might become big problems.
Some routine maintenance is pretty easy to remember. You know you need a chassis lube every 10,000 to 15,000 miles or an axle alignment every 6 months or so, but the things like coolant replacement are only ever taken care of every 750,000 miles. With that much time to wait, it can be hard to remember. Print off the guide below, stick it in your truck and take a look at it every once in a while to make sure you’ve kept it properly maintained.
Our Mack and Volvo trained technicians can help you better understand the maintenance intervals for your truck and work with you to make sure you’re getting the most out of your truck at all times. We want your truck to run smoothly for as long as you need it. So when you bring your truck into our service department, we’ll let you know what the manufacturer recommends.
