Routine Maintenance Services

Your manufacturer will have a standard routine maintenance schedule available, which is formulated to fit the needs of your vehicle. These services aren’t just a pointless chore — each one serves a purpose in keeping your car running the way it should, whether that’s by ensuring parts are lubricated or catching wear and tear before a part fails. Staying on top of these services helps keep your car reliable, and helps maintain its value.

Some of those services include:

  • Oil Changes: Your engine’s oil breaks down over time, and becomes contaminated with dirt and debris. To help keep your engine lubricated to reduce friction and heat, you should have your oil changed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.
  • Fluid Checks: Your car needs a lot of fluids to operate — coolant, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and power steering fluid. We can check the levels for all of these and replace them as needed.
  • Brake Checks: Having your brakes checked on a regular basis helps catch work brake pads, leaking brake fluid, and damaged brake lines before they become a dangerous problem.
  • Air Filter Checks: Your car’s air filter becomes clogged over time with all of the dirt and dust it’s keeping out of your car’s engine. This reduces engine performance due to lower airflow, so you should have it checked and changed out regularly.
  • Spark Plug Inspections: Worn or damaged spark plugs can cause misfires, rough idling, and reduced efficiency in your vehicle. Have them inspected regularly to ensure your engine is running as it should be.
  • Engine Inspection: A general engine inspection can catch small problems before they become big ones.
  • Belt and Hose Checks: We inspect your belts and hoses for signs of wear, leaks, or cracks that could impact their performance.
  • Drivetrain Inspection: Regular inspection of your axles, driveshafts, and differentials helps catch problems early to prevent failure.
  • Tire Checks: We check tire pressure, tread depth, and overall condition to prevent blowouts, improve your fuel efficiency, and increase traction.
