Keep your car healthy

Give car experts a chance to catch small problems before they become big ones.

Auto care preventive maintenance includes regular services, inspections and repairs that prevent potential problems, such as lubrication, adjustments, cleaning, testing, and replacement of worn parts.

There are two types of auto owners: Proactive and Reactive.

Reactive will service their vehicle when there is a breakdown, light or noise. Sometimes those all just happen or are a result of an accident of some sort, like hitting a pothole. Being reactive can be more costly, sometimes to the point of complete vehicle failure. Proactive owners will schedule auto care preventive maintenance usually based on time or mileage.

Fuel System

Critical in storing and delivering the gasoline

The fuel system is critical in storing and deliverying the gasoline or diesel fuel your engine needs to run. Think of it as your vascular system, with a heart (fuel pump), veins (fuel lines) and kidneys (filter).

Your vehicle’s electrical system is enormously complicated. When so many components can contribute to the root of your issue, it might be easier to leave it to the experts.

Scheduled Maintenance

Increase your fuel economy, keep your vehicle operating longer and safer and avoid big repairs by paying a little attention to proper maintenance.There is a saying precaution is better than a good cure. The meaning is simple. Why wait till something goes wrong and scramble to fix it when you can simply avoid something going wrong to being with? This is a line of reasoning that is generally applied to your health. However, this same reasoning can be applied to the care and maintenance of your car as well.


Don’t wait for severe weather to hit

Winter Maintenance

Proper preparation and taking your car in for servicing before the severe weather hits, are some of the most responsible preventative measures one can take.

According to the Car Care Council, winterizing your vehicle is important in order to keep your car moving during the colder months. It is always good to prepare your car for the unexpected. Investing an hour or two to have your vehicle checked is better than dealing with the cost and hassle of a breakdown during severe weather.


Get ready for the upcoming travel season

Spring Maintenance

Spring is finally here!  After the winter, there are some things you can do to help get your car ready:

Check Your Tires – Weather changes can increase or decrease your tire pressure.  Get it checked! Wiper Blades – Your wiper blades can go thru some harsh times during winter.  Have some fresh ones installed to get ready for the spring rains! Cooling System Flush – Every other year this should be done; it will prevent engine damage, especially during warmer months. Clean the Inside – Cold weather keeps most people from giving the interior of their car extra attention.  Get out there and clean up, you’ll be happy you did!
