What can happen if my oil & fluid is low?
There are many intricate moving parts in your diesel truck. These parts rely on proper lubrication in order to function and to decrease premature wear and corrosion. If your oil and fluid are low in your vehicle then you run the risk of elements of your truck grinding together or seizing up. The overall performance of the vehicle will be hindered by low or old oil and fluid. Your diesel truck will not be able to operate without regular oil and fluid changes, which is why you need to come and see us at Foothills Group.
What else should I be mindful of concerning oil & fluid?
Be cautious of potential leaks coming from the vehicle. Common leaks occur in the hose pipe of the reservoir of the hydraulic system. Keep a good eye on your hydraulic system, in general, to ensure that leaks are not occurring.
Regardless of the state of your vehicle, get your oil and fluid checked periodically. If you are running low, our technicians will be able to detect it and provide an efficient solution that suits your needs.
