Components That Require Lubrication
Heavy-duty Engine Oil
Like most components that have moving parts, heavy-duty engines require a lot of lubrication in order to avoid major damage or catastrophic damage. Some may assume that as long as an engine has oil it will forever be in good shape, be we’re here to argue against that logic. Oil loses its ability to lubricate an engine over time. Each manufacturer has its own rating for when you should change your engine oil. It should be noted that engine oil should always be changed alongside your oil filter and fuel filters.
Your transmission is responsible for moving power from your engine to your drivetrain. For those that aren’t too familiar with transmissions, they’re basically a set of gears that allow you to optimize your engine’s power output. These gears are constantly moving, and as such, need adequate lubrication. Without proper lubrication, your transmission is at risk of severe damage. Here at Integrity Fleet Services, we’re experts at maintaining transmissions. We know the ins and outs of transmission maintenance better than anyone in the Pacific Northwest.
Every heavy-duty commercial truck will have a set of differentials. These differentials are responsible for transferring power from your driveshaft to your drive axles. From there, your wheels will receive the power they need to move. Within your differential housing are a series of important gears. These gears are constantly moving and need to be lubricated at all times. Without proper lubrication, the bearings and gears within your drivetrain are at risk of catastrophic failure.
