What Is Preventative Maintenance?
Preventative maintenance and vehicle tune-ups refer to replacing or servicing anything in your vehicle before it fails or causes harm to the car. This service is so vital because paying a little bit upfront for preventative maintenance can save you a lot of money in the end on an expensive repair. For example, paying for an oil change after 3,000 miles is a lot cheaper than dealing with a seized engine clogged with sludgy oil. Preventative maintenance can include:
- Inspecting, flushing, and replacing fluids in the engine, brakes, transmission, radiator, wipers, and power steering.
- Inspecting brake pads, rotors, and calipers
- Inspecting and replacing belts and hoses
- Checking the vehicle for rust or leaks
- Checking lights and wiper blades
- Balancing and rotating tires
- Oil and filter changes
- Changing spark plugs
- And more
Let Us Keep Your Vehicle Up to Date with Maintenance
The great thing about a vehicle’s preventative maintenance schedule is that these beneficial services and tune-ups don’t have to be completed at the same time. Different services are due at different times, so you’re not hit with a huge unexpected bill all at once. We can keep you informed of upcoming maintenance requirements to help you budget your car care adequately. While an oil change should be done every 3,000-5,000 miles, the tires only need to be rotated about every 6,000 miles. The timing belt and water pump are more significant, but those can wait until 100,000 miles. The critical thing to remember is that doing all of these services at the appropriate points will save you money and headaches down the road. We’re here to keep you on schedule and perform the right services. Schedule your preventative maintenance with us today.
