Maintenance is Key

MHC Truck Dealership Service Bays

Safety is more important than ever in winter months.

Having properly working brake and power generation systems, and winter truck accessories like chains, wheel chocks, winter fronts, wiper blades and backup lighting contribute to keeping you and your truck safe. Regular maintenance such as oil changes, filter changes and fluid changes extend the longevity of your truck’s engine, protect your investment and increase uptime.

Additionally, extra cold days mean extra idling. While idling, particulate matter builds up in your diesel particulate filter (DPF) faster. DPF cleanings are an incredibly important part of routine maintenance and should be done approximately every 50,000 miles to reduce the likelihood of unplanned breakdowns and costly repairs.

Staying up with routine maintenance increases your bottom line by lowering overall costs and gives you confidence in knowing that your truck was serviced by the most highly trained professionals in the business. MHC stocks a full line of heating aids such as block heaters, fuel tank heaters and diesel fired bunk heaters to keep you and your diesel engine warm and ready to go even in the coldest temps.

Keep your truck running like new in the cold by visiting your local MHC dealer to have your medium or heavy duty truck serviced today!
