What are the benefits of regular bus maintenance?
Getting your bus maintained regularly means prolonging the life of your vehicle, since you are frequently checking if all your vehicle's systems are working correctly. The benefits of regular bus maintenance include preventing breakdowns, getting more miles per gallon (which ultimately saves you money), reducing costs of any major repairs because you will likely not have as many, improving safety, and increasing the life expectancy of your equipment.
What are the most common bus repairs?
Buses tend to carry more weight and travel more than traditional vehicles, which means the parts of your bus are put under strain more frequently. Here are the most common issues bus owners face with their vehicles:
Brake issues: Unlike traditional vehicles that use a hydraulic brake system, buses use air brake systems. Some common issues that may occur with air brake systems are leakage in the braking system, a faulty compressor inlet tube, and/or a clogged air dryer cartridge.
Engine issues: Bus engines may overheat due to excess use. If this is the case, the check engine light on your dashboard will turn on. If this light is on, be sure to bring your bus to our shop as soon as possible.
Tire issues: Because buses often carry heavy weight, their tires tend to wear out faster than traditional vehicles. You should be inspecting your bus tires weekly and take your vehicle in for wheel alignment checks frequently.
