Warning Lights

Check your dashboard. Have any of your warning lights sprung to life? If so, this is a definite sign that you should take your truck in for a tune-up. While warning lights don't always mean there is immediate trouble, it could mean problems are lurking just around the corner. To ensure your truck is in good condition, it is always a good idea to get all illuminated warning lights diagnosed as soon as possible. You may only be dealing with something as simple as a burned out taillight, but it could be something much more serious, like a transmission failure. By diagnosing and fixing minor problems, you can prevent larger, more costly problems down the road.

 

Stalling

Has your truck suddenly started stalling at intersections, when accelerating, or other times? Not only is stalling a warning sign that something isn't working as it should, but it also puts you at risk for very dangerous situations. Engines are designed to deliver a reliable performance at all times, so if it begins to stall, it's important to have it inspected. There are a number of things that could be wrong, such as a bad spark plug or clogged fuel filter.

 

Poor Fuel Mileage

Do you feel as though you are spending more and more time and money filling up your gas tank? If you aren't driving more than usual, and you're sure no one is taking your truck on secret late night spins around town, this could be a sign of trouble. A sudden decrease in fuel mileage indicates your truck isn't operating as efficiently as it should. Whether it's due to improper tire pressure, a sticking brake pad, or other reason, be sure to take your car in for a tune-up.

Your brakes should never be noisy, not should it feel as though your'e going to mash the brake pedal through the floor just to come to a stop. If your brakes are squealing, squeaking or grinding, or you feel a rhythmic vibration when the brakes are applied, watch out! These are tell-tale signs of brake problems. Brake pads, rotors and brake fluid all wear out over time, which means they need to be maintained and replaced periodically.

Tip 1- Oil Maintenance

Maintaining proper oil levels in your pickup is essential for it to perform properly. It is recommended that you have your pickup’s oil changed every 5,000 miles travelled. To check the current state of your pickup’s oil, you will need to open its hood and take out the oil dip-stick. Have a paper towel or a napkin on hand and wipe the dip stick. If you napkin or towel has gathered dark colored oil, this is a sign that you must have your pickup’s oil changed immediately. Keep in mind that if old and dirty oil accumulates in your engine, this could end causing extremely serious problems that may cost thousands of dollars to repair.

Tip 2- Coolant Maintenance

The next important maintenance activity that you must regularly do is the coolant or cooling system maintenance check. This system is your air-conditioning and if you have a faulty system on a warm summer day, you will feel miserable while driving your pickup. Like your oil, the coolant also has a compartment in your engine. Open this compartment to inspect the coolant liquid. Get a paper napkin or towel and wipe the edges of the coolant compartment. If the liquid is darkish and dirty, this is a sign that you must replace your vehicle’s coolant. When you fail to maintain your cooling system, this could lead to your pickup’s engine over-heating right away on the road. It could also clog up your radiator, which causes hundreds of dollars to repair.

Tip 3- Battery Maintenance

Without a battery, your pickup will be lifeless. Battery maintenance is extremely essential to having a well-performing pickup. Battery maintenance can be achieved by regularly inspecting your battery’s terminal cover to see if there are any signs of corrosion. If there are, it is essential that you get a used toothbrush and brush off all excess dirt. You can even go to your nearest hardware store and purchase a can of battery terminal protection spray to use in your battery maintenance activity. Be sure to spray both terminals of your battery regularly.

Tip 4- Vehicle Cleanliness

Since you regularly use your pickup and have guests riding with you from time to time, it is essential that you ensure the cleanliness of your vehicle. Regular cleaning of your pickup should be done at least 2 to 3 times a week especially if your use your vehicle regularly. Maintaining a clean pickup is easy as you only have to do a few activities. The first is to perform a visual inspection on all the carpeting, seats, cup holders, storage bins, and glove compartments and check for dust. Next, sit inside the vehicle’s cabin and smell as many areas as possible. If your nose detects foul odors, it is time for you to shampoo your carpets, and vacuum your entire cabin. It is also essential that you smell the roof of your vehicle and clean this regularly by using soap or shampoo.

Tip 5- Accessory Maintenance

If you wish to enjoy the technology and utility features of your pickup for as long as possible, you must also ensure their regular maintenance. Check all power automated items such as seats, windows, locks, child locks, and sun roofs. Make sure that these interior features are operating properly without any lag or delay, which is a sign that they are not operating optimally. You must also regularly inspect your USB ports and input jack locations to see for signs of rusting. If you do see dirt and rust, it is imperative that you get a towel or napkin and wipe away excess dirt.  If they show faulty performance, it is essential that you have them immediately checked by a mechanic. Sometimes, it is even more effective to hire an electrician if your tech features are state-of-the-art.

Ford F-150

In the market for a pickup truck? There are many new and used models and brands out there to choose from. One, for instance, that may check everything off your must-have list is the Ford F-150. The F-150 is a popular pickup truck that provides efficient power, towing and hauling capabilities, and more no matter which model year you choose. But when you invest in a vehicle – even used – you want to make sure you do what it takes to keep it safe on the road. A lot of this means staying on top of regular maintenance services and fixing any repairs that come up. But, another important factor is your driving skills. Being a defensive driver is a very important part of road safety. Here are some important things to know.

 

Maintain Focus. To be a defensive driver, you must maintain focus. Concentrate on the road at all times and check your mirrors as needed. There are many things that can cause driver distraction – texting, eating, tending to a child, etc. To maintain good focus on the road, distractions should be avoided.

 

Keep Eyes Active. A ky trick to being a defensive driver is to keep your eyes active. This means continuously checking your mirrors, scanning the road ahead, and looking for hazards and slowing traffic. By keeping your eyes active you are able to anticipate problems before they develop and take the necessary actions or precautions.

 

Stay Alert. Being tired or upset can cause you to drive poorly due to slower reaction time and a lack of focus. In order to be a defensive and safe driver, only get behind the wheel of a car if you are alert.

 

Keep Up With Traffic. While you don't want to follow the lead of cars on that road that are going much too fast, it is a good idea to keep up with the flow of traffic. Driving too fast is a major cause of accidents, and driving too slow can be just as dangerous. By driving at the speed of most other vehicles around you, you will keep yourself and others on the road much safer.

 

Be Visible. Just as you need to see vehicles around you, others need to be able to see you, too. Otherwise, accidents are inevitable. The ultimate way to make your presence known on the road is to make sure all of your turn signals, headlights, and brake lights are working – and to use them with required.

 

Another important thing to remember is to avoid blind spots. Don't linger in areas where the driver in front of you can't see you. Lurking slightly behind and a lane away from another vehicle is a dangerous place to be. Many people only check their mirrors before making a lane change, which makes this spot a danger zone. Avoid this scenario by speeding up and passing the vehicle or by slowing down so they can see you well.

 

Avoid Anger Behind The Wheel. Sure, other drivers may irritate you. They may even infuriate you at times. But don't retaliate! This is a dangerous tactic that can quickly, and easily, lead to an accident. Also avoid getting behind the wheel if you are in an angry state – it will only result in trouble.
