There’s no arguing with the fact that routine maintenance and repair is essential in order to ensure your vehicle maintains a smooth and efficient ride quality for many years. It’s important to know that a vehicle that receives regular attention for maintenance will often contribute less to pollution, consume less fuel, and stay alive much longer compared to a vehicle that never gets serviced. It’s important to look at cars like a living and breathing organism, because much like people and animals, vehicles need fluids to produce energy and sometimes parts break which then requires some attention. One thing to always keep in mind is that it’s always much less to perform routine maintenance than it is to repair broken/failed components. The short list is that in order to ensure longevity, always maintain proper fluid levels, and replace fluids and components on a regular basis.

Important Repair Services

Most consumers will assume that the vehicle they’re driving is the most reliable car out there. While some vehicles may have a reputation for being some of the most dependable vehicles on the market, there is still some level of degradation happening on your car. For example, fluids that lubricate the internal components of your car like motor oil, power steering fluid and even brake fluid can burn away and even clog up inside. Other vital parts to mention are filters that prevent contaminants from entering your engine like the air intake filter and the fuel filter. These filters, much like the filters for your in-home A/C unit eventually get completely clogged up and don’t allow for the proper flow of air or fluid. This could then lead to bigger problems that you may not want to have to deal with. One way to increase the longevity of your vehicle is by looking into the maintenance schedule that the manufacturer provides for your vehicle. This schedule is based on miles driven and will be able to give you a very good idea of when components need to be replaced. Some of those components include but are not limited to:

  • Oil Changes

  • Tires (Check every time)

  • Battery (Check every time)

  • Air and Fuel Filter Replacements

  • Spark Plug Replacement

  • Drivetrain Lubricants

  • Power Steering Fluid

  • Transmission Fluid

  • Brake and Radiator Fluid

  • Brake Pads and Rotors (Check every time)

Most Crucial Vehicle Maintenance

If there is one thing to take away from this blog, it’s the most important and crucial service you could perform on your car. The number one item is an oil change. Motor oil is similar to the blood that flows through our bodies and keeps us moving. The motor oil keeps most of the internal components in your engine lubricated and replacing it on a regular basis will ensure the efficiency and longevity of your engine. Then there’s the matter of brake pads/fluid/rotors, the single most important function of a car other than getting you somewhere, is it being able to bring you to a complete stop. While brake pads/fluids/rotors require maintenance less often compared to motor oil, it’s important to always have them checked by one of our technicians when bringing your vehicle in for a routine oil change. To the tune of getting something checked every time, two other line items to always keep in mind when bring your vehicle in is to check your battery and your tires. A battery will almost never give you a warning when it’s close to dying, you’ll just get up to drive away one day and the car just won’t start. Tires can easily be checked by you or one of our professionals when you bring your vehicle in for service. Tires provide you with traction, steering and grip to make sure that car stops when you apply the brakes.
