SERVICE AND REPAIRS
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
Routine maintenance and upkeep can greatly extend the life of your car, truck or SUV. Still, many people wait until there are major issues before visiting a shop. Failing to properly service your vehicle can result in increased repair costs, as well as greatly reducing its value.
Easily topping the list of routine maintenance musts is an oil change. Scheduling this service every three months or 3,000 miles will not only help to ensure your vehicle remains running smoothly, but will also extend the life of your engine.
Your vehicle's filters should be changed between 15,000 and 30,000 miles. Most can be inspected or replaced during a routine oil change
BELTS AND HOSES
Belts and hoses play an integral part in your vehicle's performance. It is very important to ensure that both are maintained. As belts age, the rubber becomes brittle, causing it to crack. Once the belt begins to crack, it should be replaced as it can fail at any time. If the belt is showing signs of wear on its outer edge, this is also a sign that it will need to be replaced.
Since coolant can get very hot, about 200 degrees F, the hoses that carry coolant are extremely important. Likewise, a belt or hose failure can cause loss of power steering and the electrical charging system, as well as an overheated engine. If your engine overheats, this can cause the cylinder heads to become damaged. In other words, a very expensive repair.
MAINTAINING FLUID LEVELS
Having your fluids topped off is simple and can be performed in just a few minutes. These include: oil, radiator, transmission, power steering, windshield washer and brake fluid. Additionally, they can be flushed or changed as needed. Allowing many of these fluids to become dangerously low, or old, can cause serious damage to your vehicle.
Your spark plugs should be changed every 100,000 miles. A bit more complicated than a routine oil change, the time and cost will depend greatly on the year, make and model of your vehicle.
Brake issues can start out small but worsen over time. Waiting to have them repaired can greatly increase the costs involved. Having your brakes inspected during a routine maintenance visit can help save you both time and money. During a brake inspection, all major components — rotors, brake pads, shoes and brake lines — WILL be evaluated.
BENEFITS OF ROUTINE VEHICLE MAINTENANCE
Routine checkups help to determine the state of your vehicle's overall condition. Simple maintenance, such as routine oil changes, having fluids checked or flushed as needed and tune-ups, can greatly increase your vehicle's performance and reliability. Proper vehicle maintenance is the key to maintaining value. It's good to keep this in mind if you plan on selling or trading your car, truck or SUV.
