Automotive Maintenance

Automotive maintenance is one of the highest costs a company that owns vehicles faces. 

For this reason, it is of utmost importance to carry out an efficient control of the preventive and corrective maintenance of the fleet, in order to avoid additional costs by not performing them at the right time. 

An adequate automotive maintenance plan encompasses a set of actions that includes inspections and scheduled repairs, which imply maintenance savings. 

The foregoing is aimed at preventing incidents and guaranteeing the safety of drivers, vehicle safety and the availability of the fleet.

Types of automotive maintenance 

Preventive maintenance 

They are maintenance carried out from time to time or mileage traveled, to detect vehicle failures and reduce mishaps that represent a higher cost to companies.

  • General inspection of the vehicle, 
  • Lubrication and cleaning tasks, 
  • Change of engine oil and gearbox, 
  • Change of friction, 
  • Spark plugs and hydraulic fluid, 
  • Filter control,

Corrective maintenance 

They are maintenance carried out when any component of the vehicles fails. 

They are generally more expensive, since they involve the repair or replacement of parts that do not work properly or that have stopped working. 

There are two types of corrective maintenance:  

  • Contingent
  • Scheduled. 

The former include unforeseen repairs that must be done immediately because they impede the operation of the vehicle. 

The seconds are those that do not affect the use of the vehicle immediately, but must be carried out to solve failures that in the long term will affect its operation. 

What does it include? 

Corrective automotive maintenance includes changing specific engine parts,

  • Pistons, 
  • Connecting rods, 
  • Rings, valves, 
  • Various types of welds
  • Paint depending on the case. 

Main benefits 

The main advantage of these maintenance is that they allow the vehicle to extend its useful life.

On the other hand, fault repair provides greater safety for the driver and his passengers.
