For your fleet’s Volvo-brand trucks, it's essential to have a reliable repair and maintenance shop to keep them running at peak performance. Santin Auto & Truck Repair is a reputable and trusted shop for all your Volvo truck needs.
What Makes Volvo Trucks Unique?
Volvo is a brand synonymous with safety and reliability. Their trucks are built to withstand even the harshest conditions, making them a popular choice for many fleet operators. One unique feature of Volvo trucks is the I-Shift transmission. The I-Shift transmission is an automated manual transmission that reduces wear and tears on the clutch and offers seamless gear changes, resulting in better fuel efficiency.
Another unique aspect of Volvo trucks is the regenerative braking system. This system converts kinetic energy into electricity, which is then stored in batteries and used to power the truck's electrical components. This feature not only improves fuel efficiency but also reduces brake wear, ultimately saving money on maintenance costs.
Regular Maintenance Services
Regular maintenance services are crucial to keeping any truck running smoothly. For Volvo trucks, some essential services include oil changes, brake inspections, and tire rotations. We recommend having an oil change every 10,000 to 15,000 miles or at least once a year. During an oil change, we’ll also check other vital components such as the air filter and fuel filter.
Brake inspections are also essential for Volvo trucks. The regenerative braking system reduces brake wear, but it's still necessary to have them inspected regularly. The mechanic will check the brake pads, rotors, and calipers to ensure they're in good condition and replace them if necessary.
Tire rotations are also necessary for Volvo trucks. Rotating the tires ensures even wear, resulting in longer tire life and better fuel efficiency. It's recommended to have the tires rotated every 5,000 to 7,000 miles.
Even with regular maintenance, repairs may be necessary for Volvo trucks. Santin Auto & Truck Repair offers a range of repair services for Volvo trucks, including engine repairs, transmission repairs, and suspension repairs.
Engine repairs may be necessary if the engine is not running correctly. Common issues include overheating, loss of power, and strange noises. We have the tools and technology necessary to diagnose the issue and make the required repairs, such as replacing glow plugs, fuel injectors, or the entire engine if necessary.
Transmission repairs may be necessary if the I-Shift transmission is not working correctly. Our mechanic will diagnose the issue and make the necessary repairs, such as replacing the clutch or transmission control module.
Suspension repairs may be necessary if the ride is rough or the steering is not responsive. We’ll closely inspect the suspension components, such as the shocks, struts, and ball joints, and replace them if necessary.
