Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle. Dirty oil makes it harder for your engine to turn over and causes premature engine wear.
Belts and hoses are made of a very durable material with relatively long lives but they do deteriorate over tiem. We recomend a four year replacement cycle.
Leaks, are not normal except for condensation from your air condition.
Eleven different fluids keep your car running; listed below:
- Brake Fluid
- Engine Oil
- Power Steering Fluid
- Air Conditioner Refrigerant
- Shock Absorber Fluid
- Battery Electrolyte
- Windshield Washer Solvent
- Rear Axle or CV boot Lubricant
If any of these are leaking, they need to be fixed right away.
Tires, need to be kept properly inflated to save gas and tire wear. To keep the wear even, you should have your tires rotated at least every six months depending on your mileage.
Coolant, when neglected can corrode and leave sediment throughout your cooling system causing clogging that results in damaging hot spots that can harm your engine.
Flushing every two years is recommended.
The battery needs to have the cable securely attached and free of corrosion in order to get power to the starter and accessories so the alternator receives a charge.
