It's always better to fix something before it breaks.

The same logic applies to your car. That's why regular maintenance is so important on today's vehicles. Below are some helpful hints and articles that we think will help you maintain your vehicle for years to come.

  • Regular maintenance of all fluids ensures long vehicle performance & reliability - Engine oil-3,000-5,000 miles or each quarter. Coolant-every 25,000 miles, Annual Brake fluid change, Transmission fluid change 25,000-50,000 depending on driving conditions, Power steering flush every 50,000 miles, Transfer case every 50,000, Differential fluid every 100,000 miles.
  • "Check engine" or "Service Engine Soon" lights are not something to ignore. They can indicate a problem which can cause break downs or costly repair. Have us check them out so that you don't end up stuck on the road.
  • Replace your timing belt when your manufacturer recommends.
  • Replace your wiper blades twice a year for streak-free visibility.

  • A loud muffler may not just be annoying, it can be dangerous because harmful exhaust fumes may be leaking into the passenger compartment. Have your exhaust system checked as soon as possible.
  • Proper tire pressure, tire condition & alignment can increase your fuel mileage, reduce your carbon footprint & save money from causing further vehicle repair.
  • Regular major/minor tune-ups increase vehicle efficiency & reliability. Changing Filters, Spark Plugs, Performing Fuel Injection & Fluid services are all part of regular vehicle care.
  • Replacing belts & hoses aid in reliability.
  • Shocks/Struts & Brakes are important ride & safety components to help your vehicle properly function.
  • Squeaking brakes or a "soft" brake pedal may indicate a problem within your brake system.
  • Regular inspections & service of your A/C system helps to keep you cool & running during the hot summer months. Also it provides a better measure of safety when you need that defroster to work properly.
