3 Truck Care Tips For The Fall Season

You love your truck as much as the next person. You want to make sure it lasts you a long time. It’s tough year-round and looks like it can survive another fall and winter.

But how sure are you about that? Dry Fork Diesel, your truck mechanics in Carthage, MO provides you with these three tips on how you can make your truck ready for fall time and beyond. You could be on the road commuting or out in the hunting fields waiting for that big game target to show up.

If you own a diesel or a regular truck, pay close attention to the truck tips listed below. Let’s get started:

1.   Check and change the oil

Your oil might get a little dirty after the kind of drive it’s had over the summer. It might be a good time to change it now while the weather is getting colder. The oil will keep the moving parts clean and well-lubricated (especially in the fall and winter months).

If anything, you’ll want to keep a close eye on it even after the snowfalls. That’s because you could be dealing with salt and dirt that is being used for snow removal. And it may end up inside your engine somehow, some way.

If you are looking for a reliable diesel mechanic near Joplin, MO that will make sure your truck is running like a well-oiled machine, you better believe that we’ve got the ASE-certified mechanics that will get the job done.

2.   Add anti-freeze if needed

Missouri does it chilly in the fall and winter. There is no better time than now to make sure that you have some anti-freeze in your radiator to ensure that it can run smoothly in cold weather conditions. You’ll want to choose the anti-freeze wisely since they come in different colors and will need to work for specific vehicles. To make it easier for you, Dry Fork Diesel highly recommends that you use green anti-freeze as it’s compatible with most diesel-powered trucks.

3.   Get an annual inspection

It can’t be stressed well enough. You need to get your truck inspected so you know what parts are in good shape and what needs to be fixed. We will fix any issues on the same day and on the spot.

While we have your truck in the shop, you won’t have to wait long at all. We’ll have you in, out, and on the go. You’ve got places to go, family to spend time with, and some peace and quiet out in the hunting fields.
