Luckily, with GPS tracker devices, maintenance reminders are as simple as pushing a few buttons.

Fleet trucks require a lot of maintenance to stay operational. The most thought about preventative maintenance that every vehicle needs includes tire rotations, oil changes, and other fluids. One simple, yet often forgotten component is the engine air filter. When changed properly on a regular basis, the air filter can “breathe” new life into the engine. This small part is customarily underestimated in its vital role for fleet vehicles. Since it isn’t the first thing most people think about when they hear the words “routine maintenance” it’s understandable that knowing when to change it can be forgotten. US Fleet Tracking reveals some tricks to using GPS tracker reminders which can help businesses to remember to do so and keep the engine healthy.
1.) What to do if the vehicle manual can be found: First, one should check the vehicle manual to see when scheduled maintenance such as this one is needed. The next step is to create the alert for the engine air filter change. After that, follow the prompts entering the necessary vehicle mileage into the alert feature slots and submit it.
2.) What to do if the vehicle manual cannot be found: Not everyone takes the time to read the manual or they tend to get lost. Note that most air filter service is required every 9,000 to 12,000 miles, but some fleet vehicles may need their engine filters changed more often if they have been driven a lot more, especially in stop-and-go traffic or have really long commutes. The best thing to do if this is the case is to set the alert reminder to check the engine air filter at every oil change interval.
If a vehicle goes too long without the engine filter being changed then dirt, pollen, and debris can be sucked up into the engine and it will burn inside the combustion chamber. This causes harm to the combustion chamber as well as to the vehicle’s emissions components. Luckily, with GPS tracker devices, maintenance reminders are as simple as pushing a few buttons. The alerts will be sent via email, text message, or both making it simple to keep track of the necessary maintenance so that fleet vehicles won’t have more problems than necessary down the road.
