Shop Best Practices Discussion

AJ suggested that any vehicles/equipment approaching the end of a warranty period be serviced and checked over well.

AJ suggested that any fleet using large volumes of oil and creating large volumes of waste oil, check with their waste oil hauler for payment in times of rising cost of oils.

Wendy suggested companies utilize oil analysis to help detect problems before failures or breakdowns occur in this time of rising costs of parts and extended delays in getting parts.

Wendy spoke about an issue that two of her fleet customers experienced – both companies are high idle, lots of stop & go that prevents the trucks from reaching optimal temperature. Since they trucks cannot get hot enough, they were not able to burn off diesel particulate matter or regen, and experiencing lots of DEF error codes. The companies were advised by the OEM to up RPMS to help the engines reach temperature.
