Preventative Maintenance

Whether you have one truck or a fleet, they all need preventative maintenance to keep them on the road. Consolidated Truck Parts & Service provides such services in Alexandria, Many, and Monroe in Louisiana.

Having even one truck off the road can cost you money. But you lose even more money when you need truck repair that could take several hours or even a day or two.

Preventative maintenance is the key to extending the lifespan of your truck and avoiding costly repairs down the road. By proactively addressing potential issues and regularly servicing your vehicle, you can prevent major breakdowns and optimize its performance.

Preventative Maintenance Services at Consolidated Truck Parts & Services

To keep your Class 8 and other trucks on the road, you need to perform maintenance services at the time the manufacturer recommends. This ensures your trucks always perform best and are less likely to break down.

Our team is here to help you identify and resolve minor problems before they escalate, saving you time, money, and headaches. When you bring your truck for servicing, we start with a free 40-point inspection to locate any issues (such as fluid leaks, worn brakes, and more) before we do the necessary services, like: 

Engine Tune-Up

A thorough engine tune-up involves inspecting and replacing spark plugs, ignition wires, filters, and fluids to ensure optimal fuel efficiency, smooth operation, and reliable performance.

Fluid Checks and Changes

Regular fluid checks and changes are essential for maintaining proper lubrication and cooling in critical systems such as the engine, transmission, differential, and power steering. We’ll assess fluid levels and conditions and perform necessary replacements or top-ups.

Brake Inspections and Service

Brake inspections are vital to ensure the safety of your truck. Our technicians will inspect brake pads, rotors, calipers, and brake lines and perform necessary repairs or replacements to maintain reliable stopping power.

Suspension and Steering Maintenance

A well-maintained suspension and steering system are crucial for a smooth and comfortable ride. We’ll check components such as shocks, struts, bushings, and tie rods and perform alignments or replacements as needed.

Electrical System Check

Our technicians will inspect your truck’s electrical system, including the battery, alternator, starter, and wiring, to identify any potential issues and ensure the proper functioning of all electrical components.

Cooling System Inspection

A properly functioning cooling system prevents overheating and engine damage. We’ll inspect the radiator, hoses, water pump, and coolant levels and perform flushing or repairs to maintain optimal cooling efficiency.

Tire Inspections and Rotations

Regular tire inspections and rotations promote even wear and extend tire life. We’ll check tire pressure, tread depth, and alignment and perform rotations to ensure balanced wear patterns.

Safety System Checks

Our comprehensive preventative maintenance includes inspections of safety systems such as lights, wipers, belts, and hoses to ensure compliance with regulations and optimal safety on the road.
