MAINTENANCE

...it costs less than repairs.

Driving a car can be fun, but its maintenance can be a pain.

No one really enjoys the task of auto maintenance.

As long as our vehicle works fine, we are happy and don't always remember to get the maintenance of our motor done. Even if your vehicle works fine, getting the servicing and maintenance of your vehicle done regularly is necessary. General maintenance helps to keep your automobile in good running condition and can save you trouble of repairing or changing major parts of your auto in the long run.

Also remember, the lesser you claim on your insurance the lesser the premium you pay later on your motor. Regular oil check and change is required and can be considered as one of the most important steps to maintain your car. Every auto owner may not keep track of when his or her engine needs an oil change. Old oil or insufficient oil in your engine will heat up the engine quickly and might lead to damage and other problems in your vehicle. To fix these problems you will have to pay quite a lot. To keep your automobile running efficiently and engine well maintained regular oil change is essential and necessary.

BRAKES

 

HOW CAN I TELL WHEN MY BRAKES NEED SERVICING?

 

 

  • The brake pedal can be depressed nearly to the floor.

 

  • Some brands of brake pads have a built-in device that produces a high-pitched squeal or sound when the brake pads are wearing thin.

 

  • Vehicle pulls to one side when you apply the brakes.

 

  • You feel a grinding or bumpy sensation as you come to a stop.

 

If there is "anything" about your brakes that is making you uncomfortable, you should have them inspected. Give us a call, we will get you in as soon as possible!

      OIL CHANGE
 

AN OIL CHANGE IS MUCH MORE THAN SIMPLY EXCHANGING YOUR ENGINE OIL AND FILTER

TIRE INFORMATION
 

Tire Pressure:

Under or over-inflation can result in irregular wear, loss of control and accidents. A tire can lose up to half of its air pressure and not appear to be flat! Please have your tire pressure checked with every oil change.

Note: 

Recommended air pressure is posted on the driver's door or in the glove compartment.

 

Tire Alignment:

If your vehicle is pulling to one side or shaking, it may be out of alignment and causing damage to your tires. Have your vehicle checked for proper alignment periodically, especially if you notice driving irregularities.

 

Tire Rotation:

Regular rotation of tires promotes more even wear, which in turn prolongs tire life. The general guideline for tire rotation is every other oil change (or every 6,000 to 7,500 miles), unless otherwise directed by your vehicle or tire manufacturer.

 

Tire Tread:

While the penny test can do the trick if you're in a pinch (legal tread depth is 2/32 of an inch - you may feel more comfortable having our certified technician measure this during an inspection.
