Preventative maintenance is essentially a checkup for your vehicle. They’re designed to catch problems prior to them requiring significant repair work. Doing preventative maintenance will extend the life of your vehicle and keep it performing optimally for many years ahead.

Most preventative maintenance is done at routine intervals that depend on your driving conditions and driving frequency along with vehicle make, style and year. The schedule for your vehicle is typically located in the owner’s manual and usually includes maintenance checks at the following times:

  • Every 30,000 miles until your vehicle reaches 75,000 total miles driven
  • After 75,000 miles, take your automobile in yearly
  • Seasonally for A/C and Heater maintenance
  • Bi-annually to inspect and rotate tires
  • Oil and fluid changes need to be done every 3,000-5,000 miles

Air Filters

Particles like mold, pollen, bacteria, and dust may damage engine parts. Air filters keep the air that moves into the engine clean from particles. The majority of cars have 2 kinds of air filters. The interior combustion air filter processes the air taken into the engine and stops additional wear on the engine by eliminating contaminants. The cabin air filter works to cleanse the air that moves into the cabin with the ventilation system by getting rid of damaging elements from the cooling and heating systems.

Dirty air filters can create problems with gas economy, performance, emissions, and in some cases may result in added engine repairs.

Fluid Inspections

Fluids including engine oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, antifreeze/coolant, and power steering fluid maintain vital parts of your vehicle. Engine oil is necessary for the total oiling of your engine and must be examined and switched out regularly. Transmission fluid keeps your transmission running efficiently and free from sliding. Brake fluid aids the braking system by transferring force into pressure. Antifreeze and coolant keep your engine from overheating as a result of combustion, and the lines from freezing in cooler temperatures.

To work properly, fluids should be kept full and clean from fragments. Each of your vehicle’s fluids must be inspected and changed at routine periods to maintain them from burning, depleting, or from gathering debris. Appropriate maintenance and fluid changes can easily expand the life of your automobile.

Wheel Alignments

Wheel alignment services keep your vehicle moving in a straight line, by precisely aligning the front and rear wheels. When one or more wheels are out of alignment, your vehicle will start to pull in one direction and create premature wear on your tires and suspension. Basic wheel alignment service should be done regularly to combat this.

How are Wheel Alignment Services Performed?

Wheel alignment involves the adjustment of a vehicle’s suspension. Your vehicle is hooked up to an alignment machine that is linked to a computer, which then takes precise measurements. Adjustments will be made to the various suspension angles known as toe, thrust, camber, and caster. The wheel alignment machine will adjust these angles so that they are set to vehicle manufacturer specifications.
