Preventative Maintenance

Preventive maintenance is crucial when it comes to getting the most out of your vehicle as parts wear out over time. By following manufacturer recommendations at timely intervals, you can keep your vehicle in top condition and avoid huge costly repairs. A great way to be informed about the preventative maintenance recommended for your vehicle is to check the owner’s manual as maintenance schedules vary for the needs of different vehicles. However, there are some industry standards for all vehicles that will help keep your vehicle running it’s best!

Air Filter Replacement

An air filter is your vehicle’s first line of defense to protect your engine from dirt, bugs and other environmental contaminants. There are several types of air filters, but they have one thing in common: they need to be replaced regularly to ensure healthy performance of your vehicle.

Fuel Injection Service

Regular use of your vehicle can lead to clogged fuel injectors. This can lead to poor gas mileage and an increase in dangerous engine emissions. Routine services ensure proper maintenance of your fuel injectors, saving you from costly repairs in the future.

Oil and Filter Change

Regular oil and filter changes are essential for a healthy engine. The oil filter prevents contaminants like dirt and grime from mixing with the oil and harming your engine. Filters break down over time, allowing these contaminants to infiltrate your engine, sometimes resulting in permanent engine damage.

Spring Checkup

From testing your battery to evaluating the health of your tires, a Spring checkup is an important step in preparing your vehicle for the stress of hot summer months. Our staff is equipped to inspect every aspect of your vehicle to ensure it is safe, saving you money in the long run.

Winterization Checkup

Prepping your vehicle for the colder temperatures of winter can ensure it continues to perform at its best. Our skilled technicians check your vehicle thoroughly to identify possible concerns, focusing on the coolant levels and health of your battery, tires and wipers.

Wiper Blades Replacement

Whether they’re helping keep your windshield clean or providing visibility in inclement weather, your wiper blades can take a beating. No matter what, they’ll eventually need to be replaced, and our experienced technicians can ensure you’re driving with the best wipers for your vehicle.
