7 Common Items Included on a Vehicle Inspection Checklist

Your inspection checklist will depend upon what type and when you’re performing them. But there may be some common obvious issues with equipment that could affect one’s driving.

1.Tires

Check the tread depth. The tread should be at least 4/32 of an inch deep. 
Make sure the air pressure in all four tires is correct. 75-80 psi for a trailer truck and 32-35 psi for a passenger car.

2. Brakes

-Brake fluid level: Check the level of brake fluid in the reservoir and top up if necessary.
-Brake lines: Check the brake lines for leaks or damage. If they are damaged, they will need to be replaced.

3. Lights

When inspection lights, there are a few key elements to check. First, check the light bulbs to ensure that they are all working properly. Next, check the wiring and connections to make sure that there is no damage or fraying.

4. Horn

The warning device should be audible from a distance of at least 200 feet under normal conditions. 

5. Mirrors

The location of the mirrors will vary depending on the type of vehicle you are inspecting, but they should be positioned so that you have a clear view of the road behind you.

6. Engine

The engine is the heart of any vehicle, so it’s important to keep it in good working order.
– Check the oil level and quality. Fresh oil is vital for keeping the engine clean and lubricated.
– Check the coolant level and condition. Coolant helps to keep the engine operating at a consistent temperature.

7. Fuel level

A low fuel level can lead to engine knock and decreased power, while a high fuel level can cause the engine to run lean and produce less power. The fuel level should therefore be checked regularly to ensure that it is at the correct level.
