Nearly every day, you drive your vehicle. Whether it be a couple of miles to the store or a full-on road trip across the nation, you want to make sure that your vehicle is safe to drive and the systems are in check and/or up-to-date. Here are a few reminders to check and see if your vehicle is running in top shape.
It isn’t easy keeping your fleet or commercial trucks up and running. At Autoworks in Ithaca, NY, we’re here to help. Fleet and commercial vehicles log a lot of miles, and a lot of hours - as a result, even the most reliable components need to be serviced occasionally. On an ordinary diesel, an injection pump may last the entire life of the engine itself. On vehicles that work harder than anything else on the road, this isn’t always the case.
Does your steering wheel feel like it’s fighting you when trying to drive in a straight line? Does your truck turn too aggressively when you try to go one direction, and poorly when you try to go another? There are a few possibilities as to what it means if your truck resists going in a straight line. Autoworks in Ithaca has the answers for you.
