Floors
The floor is an important part of your truck/trailer. A trailer floor highly determines the safety and delivery of your goods. Trailer floors can be made of timber, aluminum, stainless steel or other strong metals. Call us or visit L & N Truck Service today for all your truck floor needs.

Lights
Lights are one of the most important parts of any vehicle. This is especially so if you travel early in the morning or late in the evening. The lights provide illumination for you as you drive. In trucks, the lighting system is made up of front, sides, rear, and top lights. The lights are designed to let you drive safely after dark. To increase your safety and the safety of other road users, make sure your truck's lights are in good working condition. Have the lights and the lighting system checked by the experts at L & N Truck Service. Call us at 770-961-2505 today.

Brakes
A brake is a mechanical device for inhibiting a truck's motion. Unlike car brakes, truck brakes have to be bigger and more powerful to stop the truck and its load. Most brakes use friction to convert kinetic energy into heat. The brakes store braking heat in the disc brake or drum brake when braking and then conduct it to the air gradually.

Faulty brakes put you and other road users at a great risk. Faulty brakes increase the chances of collisions. If your truck has braking issues, visit or call L & N Truck Service today. At L & N Truck Service, we have brake experts who will diagnose and work on your truck braking system.

Landing Gear
The landing gear is the part of a moving truck that is underneath the main body. It is the supporting structural framework of a truck. A landing gear incorporates the wheels, suspension, brakes, traction motors, and powered units. In case of faulty landing gear, visit L & N Truck Service today.

Vehicle Tips

  • According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
  • The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
  • Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
  • Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
  • Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
  • A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
  • Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
  • Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
  • Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
  • Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
  • Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
  • Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
  • Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
  • Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
  • Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
  • Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
  • Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
  • Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
  • Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
