PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

Courtesy of the Automotive Service Association

The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments.
  • Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

    I had a great experience with these guys today. I usually go to the maxi in red bank but they were slammed full today and randy recommended here. I had a wheel bearing out and they took me in and got me out in under 2 hours. That gary guy might not be the friendliest but we cant all be people persons. The other guy did great work at a fair price. I would go here again absolutely.

    Called them after terrible service at another shop that was trying to price gauge me and push unnecessary repairs. Spoke with Gary, the manager at this location, and right off the bat he won my business after I expressed some concern about the "suggested repairs" that the other shop had mentioned. He asked it the parts were working, told him yes, as far as I knew, but had been told that replacement was suggested "since those parts are often damaged when doing the primary repair." Without flinching, he immediately responded that, yes, they could replace those parts if I wanted, but that they normally did not change parts if they were in working order. Took car the following morning, repair was completed by that afternoon. I don't know about other reviews, but they did right by me and would gladly recommend them.

    Excellent service. They diagnosed the problem with my car, when two other auto shops failed to do so. Highly recommend them. Blessings!

    I started taking my daughters car here after a horrible experience at Firestone down the road. They have been honest and straight forward with us. They made my daughter feel as if she could trust them and their work over the other repair shops around. Keep up the great work!
