At Autoworks in Ithaca, NY, we know there’s a lot of conflict on when you should maintain certain things on your truck. We also know there are consequences to neglecting maintenance; the difference between a truck that breaks down all the time and a truck that has covered over a million miles virtually trouble-free all boils down to maintenance.
In short, you should perform some type of maintenance prior to every time you drive your truck. Check the fluids, inspect the tires, and make sure all the lights work any time you hit the road. Catching problems early will save you a great deal of time and headache in the long run.
For items that require a mechanic, your intuition and your manufacturer's recommendations are the primary factors in deciding what to maintain and when. Your owner’s manual specifies maintenance intervals on everything from oil and brake changes to internal part inspections. Do what the manual says, and you’ll have a truck that keeps going and going. If you notice something wrong before it’s time to have your truck serviced, don’t hesitate to have it checked out. Small problems can turn into big ones fast. Nobody knows your truck better than you do; if you think something requires attention, it probably does.
