For many years, there was only one type of coolant available on the market – conventional green. But thanks to improvements in antifreeze technology, you can now protect your engine with coolant that’s specially engineered for high-performance, exhaust gas recirculating (EGR) diesels.
ELD. AOBRD. HOS. RODS. These acronyms are likely dominating your staff meetings as your fleet tries to figure out the best way to comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Electronic Logging Device rule.
If you suffer from asthma or allergies, you’re keenly aware of the benefits of clean air. And fall may be one of your suffering seasons. That’s because ragweed, which is common this time of year, causes headaches, blurry eyes and runny noses for about 75 percent of people with seasonal allergies. Mold spores released during humid weather can also trigger fall allergies.
Drivers are going further than ever with Volvo’s newest engine oil, Volvo VDS-4.5 Premium Engine Oil. But those longer change intervals put greater demands on oil filters, which must have the durability and capacity to last up to 60,000 miles.
Winter weather is here, bringing along challenges that are largely outside a driver’s control. Each year, trucking companies lose more than 32 billion vehicle hours due to weather-related tie-ups in the nation’s largest metropolitan areas. And when the weather clears, more hours are lost repairing and replacing parts damaged in collisions caused by bad weather.
Everyone knows that one-size-fits-all isn’t the best approach to preventive maintenance, but that doesn’t stop people from trying. When it comes to engine oil drains, some fleet managers and owner-operators play it safe and follow the lowest OEM recommendations. Others try to save a few cents by extending intervals just beyond OEM change guidelines.
Attitudes about automated manual transmissions (AMTs) have changed over the years – so much so that more than 80 percent of all new Volvo trucks sold last year in North America were spec’d with a Volvo I-Shift AMT.
Vehicles built in the last 20 years are required to have self-adjusting brake adjusters (S-ABAs). But even though they’ve been around awhile, some people don’t seem to know how S-ABAs work. Here’s proof: according to one survey conducted by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, 53 percent of drivers said that automatic slack adjusters never go out of adjustment. That’s not true, and it’s a potentially dangerous misconception.
If you’re like many other fleet managers or owner-operators, you may find yourself at a crossroads approximately every seven to 10 years or 800,000 to 1 million miles, when your truck’s engine performance isn’t what it used to be. Should you buy a new truck, or overhaul your engine?
Fuel filters have a dirty job to do, even with today’s extremely clean fuel. That’s because, after leaving the refinery, fuel travels through pipelines, delivery trucks, storage tanks and dispensing pumps, picking up contaminants along the way.
