If you’ve been putting off routine maintenance or a necessary repair, now is a great time to schedule the work with your local mechanics. Not only are we open for business, but we have availability in our schedule to fit you in quickly. Plus, if you’re like many people, you’re not going into work so you won’t need to make alternate arrangements to get to work if we need your vehicle for more than just a day. Wondering about your car’s maintenance needs? Here are some things to think about.
If you look closely your car’s oil change reminder sticker doesn’t just have a mileage reminder, it also has a date reminder. That’s because even oil that’s sitting in your car or only being cycled through the engine occasionally breaks down. You don’t want to go beyond the date any more than you want to go beyond the mileage. Check your sticker for both and call your local mechanics if it’s time for an oil change.
50,000/100,000/150,000 Tune Ups
We know that tune ups can be costly, however, neglecting your car’s health can be more expensive than taking care of the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance. Look at your car’s manual (or Google it) and see what you should have done and call your local mechanics. They can easily give you an estimate for the work and let you know how long it will take. By investing in your car’s health, it will last longer and cost less over its lifetime.
Many fluid flushes appear on the tune up schedules. However, we have more harsh driving conditions than some other parts of the country. This means that we need to pay attention to the appearance of our car’s fluids more often than some other parts of the country. It’s easy to check your fluids and it is something you should be doing regularly. Again, you manual, or Google, can tell you how to check your specific car’s various fluids.
