Commercial Vehicle Troubleshooting Guide

Commercial vehicles can fall under several different categories, but the one’s J&A Fleet Channahon generally service are used to carry tools and technicians to a project site where they can perform their job. Our team of fleet maintenance technicians works on trucks for general contractors, municipal service trucks, and so much more. 

J&A Fleet’s Two-Truck Maintenance Agreement

Our two-truck fleet maintenance agreement is perfect for keeping commercial vehicles on the road longer. For just $400 monthly, we’ll service one of your fleet vehicles each month. This ensures your fleet truck is up to DOT standards and your drivers experience less downtime and breakdowns. Our monthly maintenance agreement covers the inspection, labor, and all of the parts we use to keep your commercial vehicle operational. Preventive maintenance includes inspections and maintenance for:

  • Spark plugs
  • Wheel bearings
  • Suspension
  • Oil and fluids
  • Brakes
  • Alternator
  • Fuel Filters

But this is just the start. J&A Fleet Channahon will repair any preventive maintenance consumable on your commercial fleet vehicle. In layman’s terms, this means anything that touches a grease point will be covered under this cost-effective fleet maintenance program. 

Preventive Checklist

Obviously J&A Fleet can manage any general maintenance, but we also want to educate drivers so they’re aware when issues arise. By following this simple checklist, drivers can bring their commercial vehicles in for a quick tune-up rather than calling for expensive mobile repairs for an avoidable issue. Some things that we recommend drivers check include:

  • Tire pressure– Tires tend to lose air in cold weather and over time. You should also make the vehicle’s splash guards meet your state’s regulations.
  • Lights– All of your lights need to be working properly to ensure drivers can see the road and other drivers see the company truck. Check everything– the low beams, high beams, tail lights, brake lights, and turn signals should all be functional before the truck drives away. 
  • Brakes– Test your brakes to make sure they feel firm and like they’re performing correctly. If your brakes feel spongy or make squeaking or screeching noises, take it to get serviced before you head out on a job. 

These are probably the top three easiest and most important things to take care of but there are numerous other considerations too. The seat belts, steering, suspension, windshield wipers, and more need to be in working order to ensure a safe trip.
