2.) Check The Levels Of Your Pickup: Engine, transmission, and power steering fluid (if equipped), as well as antifreeze, and brake fluid are essential for the proper functioning of your truck, especially if you use it for cargo or heavy work. Check them periodically and refill the fluids that are necessary according to the manufacturer’s recommendation.
