Keeping Air-Rite’s Fleet on the Road: A Comprehensive Service for the DMAX

At Power Curve Automotive, we take pride in providing top-notch service to our clients, ensuring their vehicles are in optimal condition for the road ahead. Recently, we had the pleasure of servicing one of Air Rite’s fleet vehicles, a DMAX, and conducting a thorough inspection to address any maintenance needs. In this blog, we’ll detail the comprehensive service we performed on the DMAX, highlighting the importance of regular maintenance and addressing potential issues before they escalate.



The service for the DMAX commenced with an engine oil and filter change, coupled with a full inspection of service items to ensure every aspect of the vehicle’s performance and safety was assessed. Our experienced technicians meticulously examined the vehicle, identifying maintenance items that required immediate attention to keep the DMAX running smoothly and reliably.

Addressing maintenance items

During the service inspection, we identified several maintenance items that needed to be addressed promptly:

  1. Balance and Rotation of Wheels/Tyres: Properly balanced and rotated wheels and tyres ensure even wear and optimal performance, enhancing vehicle stability and safety on the road.

  2. Dirty Air Filter: A dirty air filter restricts airflow to the engine, reducing fuel efficiency and potentially causing engine damage. We recommended replacing the air filter to maintain optimal engine performance.

  3. Dirty Cabin Filter: The cabin filter, located under the dash, plays a crucial role in filtering out dust, pollen, and other contaminants from the air conditioning system. A dirty cabin filter can lead to poor air quality inside the vehicle and may affect the performance of the HVAC system. We advised replacing the cabin filter to ensure clean and fresh air circulation.

  4. Power Steering Line and Flush: Addressing the power steering line and flush is essential for maintaining proper steering function and preventing potential leaks or issues with the power steering system.

  5. Rear Brakes: Poor rear brakes can compromise braking performance and safety. We recommended replacing the rear brakes to ensure optimal stopping power and vehicle control.

  6. Fuel Filter: A clogged or dirty fuel filter can restrict fuel flow to the engine, affecting performance and fuel efficiency. We advised replacing the fuel filter to maintain proper engine function.

  7. Wheel Bearing Repack: Repacking wheel bearings helps prevent premature wear and ensures smooth and efficient wheel rotation. We recommended addressing the wheel bearing repack to maintain proper wheel alignment and reduce the risk of component failure.

  8. Wheel Alignment: Proper wheel alignment is crucial for vehicle handling, tire wear, and fuel efficiency. We recommended performing a wheel alignment to ensure optimal vehicle performance and safety.

The service performed on Air Rite’s DMAX exemplifies our commitment to excellence in automotive maintenance and service. By conducting a comprehensive inspection and addressing maintenance items promptly, we help ensure the vehicle’s reliability, safety, and longevity on the road. At Power Curve Automotive, we’re dedicated to keeping our clients’ fleet vehicles in top condition, allowing them to focus on their core business operations without worrying about vehicle maintenance issues.
