In many ways, getting Ford service done for your Ford Super Duty trucks is similar to other vehicles. But since Ford Super Duty trucks are built for heavier applications, you must add several maintenance tasks to your schedule. Kearny Mesa Ford can assist you with any Ford Super Duty service tasks, including these essential checklist items.
The Department of Transportation (DOT) must inspect commercial motor vehicles that weigh over 10,000 lbs. They’ll comprehensively inspect your truck to ensure it meets federal and state standards. Depending on your Ford Super Duty truck configuration and accessories, you might be subject to DOT inspections.
Diesel Emissions Check
All vehicles must undergo emissions checks to ensure they comply with federal and state regulations. However, many business trucks use diesel engines to afford them more power on the road. Thus, you’ll need to undergo periodic diesel emissions checks to ensure your diesel engine is running and performing correctly.
Another factor that trucks that drive diesel engines must consider is overhead adjustments. This is vital to ensure that your engine remains airtight over time.
One of the most essential facets of Ford Super Duty truck maintenance is getting a VIS-check done. This machine checks your undercarriage for damage or rot that might severely impact your vehicle. It also helps you maintain compliance by accurately checking for various systems underneath the truck.
