If you want to live a long life – you routinely go to the doctor’s office, do what they recommend, and with a little luck you will have a long life. The same holds true for your vehicle. This is what we call Preventative Maintenance. If you want your vehicle to have a long and healthy life you have to maintain it on a regular basis.
Maintaining your vehicle when it’s new is easy; but can become difficult when it’s out of warranty. Our Recommended Maintenance Schedule in conjunction with the scheduled maintenance services from your manufacturer will help you to get the most out of your ride.
There are many harmful contaminants in and around your vehicle every day. Most newer vehicles have a Cabin Filter that filters these contaminants in the air you breathe when in your vehicle. Make sure you replace this filter as recommended by the manufacturer, normally once a year.
“Sure I take care of my vehicle, I change my oil regularly”. Sound familiar? Your oil is not the only fluid you should maintain or change. There are many systems that need lubricating. Your manufacturer’s Recommended Maintenance Schedule helps advise you on when to maintain or get an oil change, as well as other fluid replacements.
We are dedicated to making your vehicle last longer and perform better. By removing engine deposits in combustion chambers, intake manifolds, ports and on valves, we will restore flow in fuel injectors while cleaning your entire fuel system. All while preventing deposits from forming in the fuel system and upper engine for maximum driveability and fuel economy. This improved fuel economy will reduce exhaust emissions. Our Fuel System Service will restore that “like new” driveability to an engine’s performance and keep it running better, longer and more efficiently.
The factory maintenance guide that’s created by the car manufacturer every year is model specific and should be used as a minimum guide for routine maintenance. Not all vehicle models require the same schedule so it’s important to use the specific manual for the specific year and model. Not maintaining a vehicle by specific factory minimum standards could result in denied warranty repairs.
Every schedule will list explicit maintenance procedures that should be performed at a certain mileage or time interval, whichever comes first. If an interval states that an oil and filter change needs to be performed at 5,000 miles or 6 months, it means whichever comes first, the 5,000 miles or the elapsed time of 6 months.
As an example if the vehicle has 3,000 miles since the last maintenance visit but it’s been over 6 months, the next service should be performed.
To help the car owner keep track of their scheduled maintenance, Auto Repair Technology will place a sticker in the inside upper left corner of the windshield that lists when the next service should be performed. Most factory schedule booklets also provide an area where the car owner can record each service performed.
If you have any questions regarding your vehicle’s maintenance, please don’t hesitate to ask. Our team of mechanics is standing by and is ready to help you, whatever your need may be.
