Don't Forget About Your Routine Maintenance

675 × 450

We know, having your routine maintenance performed isn't just annoying, but it sometimes seems like it isn't even worth it. Believe it or not, if you have regular maintenance done on your vehicle, your car, truck, SUV, or van will gain a longer life and it may save you quite a bit of money on future larger repairs.

What maintenance should you have done regularly?

  • Oil Change - Your engine's oil lubricates, cools, and cleans your engine as you drive. If the oil isn't changed out regularly you could end up with thin or sludgy oil that won't do its job and will eventually allow your engine to either over heat, not run properly, or break down. Your owner's manual can tell you a specific timeline of when you should have your oil changed, but you should have it done more frequently if you tend to drive on dirty roads, drive a lot, or are involved with much stop and go traffic.
  • Tire Rotation - As you drive, your tires receive wear, but they don't wear evenly. Depending on your vehicle, certain tires may gain more wear than others. To keep everything even, and save you more money on tires, you should have them rotated when you get an oil change.
  • Brake Inspection - While your technician is rearranging your tires or changing your oil, ask them to inspect your brakes. If the pads look a little thin, they should be changed. You may also notice that your brakes will need to be replaced if you hear a squeal, sense a shudder, or smell an acidic smell when you apply the brakes.
