People who want to live a long life tend to visit the doctor often, take their recommendations, and live a healthy lifestyle. If you want your car to live a long and healthy life, then you must keep up with its factory scheduled maintenance, or preventative maintenance. Getting services performed on a regular maintenance schedule will keep your car happy and healthy for years and miles down the road.
Recommended Maintenance Schedule
Keeping up with a new vehicle’s maintenance is easy – it barely needs a look for anything but oil changes before 10,000 miles. But when your factory warranty is up, you’ll want to consult your owner’s manual to make sure you have the right factory scheduled maintenance performed at the right time and milestone.
Cabin Filter Replacement
Between the pollution outside and the exhaust coming from your car, there are dozens if not hundreds of pollutants in the air, trying to get into your car’s cabin. A cabin air filter prevents this, and keeping it in good health is not only a great habit for your car, it will keep you from breathing in the pollutants found in the air. A win-win!
Fluid Exchange Services
Some people might think getting the oil changed is the only fluid service your car needs, but factory scheduled maintenance calls for the replacement of nearly all the fluids in your car at some point or another. Check your owner’s manual for explicit details on every type of automotive fluid and when they need changing.
Fuel System Services
This is an important one. As you drive, your fuel system can become clogged with engine deposits in the combustion chambers, intake manifolds, ports, and valves. We will inspect the entire system, clean out the deposits, and restore fuel restore flow to the fuel injectors. This cleaning not only helps the engine run for longer, but it can also actually improve fuel economy and the overall driveability of your car. A fuel system cleaning can also reduce emissions and make it easier to pass the yearly emission examination.
