Maintenance

 

No matter what the season is, make sure that your vehicle is maintained properly. Always make sure that you follow the schedule that is specifically designed for your vehicle. This also depends on the make and model of the vehicle, as well as how often you drive, and what type of roads you drive on. Driving on gravel affects your vehicle much differently than driving on paved roads. Also be aware of what type of traffic you drive in. Bumper to bumper stop and go traffic will wear out the brakes quicker than driving in lighter traffic areas.

Maintenance for the Oil

Remember to never forget about changing the oil in your vehicle. The oil will lubricate the engine, as well as other parts and gears for the vehicle. Without the oil, these gears can wear against one another and end up causing damage. In some cases, the engine will seize up and become damaged. If you are not sure on the frequency that oil changes should be done, you can check in the owner’s manual. Also, we can also provide you with the schedule for an oil change for your vehicle. Having the oil changed regularly will help with the efficiency of how it operates when you drive.

Oil Filter

Besides the oil change, the oil filter will also have to be inspected. When it has become dirty or clogged, it will need to be changed as well. This can be a simple task. The oil filter collects any contaminants that are in the oil. It also allows the oil to pass through it so it can keep the vehicle running efficiently. After the vehicle has the oil and oil filter changed, the engine should be able to work in the best condition possible. If you notice an oil leak, it is important to bring the vehicle in as soon as possible so we are able to inspect it for you.
