Regular Maintenance

Brake System Fluid Service

Many experts recommend replacing the fluid as a preventive maintenance service every two years or 24,000 miles. That’s because brake fluids absorb moisture over time, which could mean your brakes perform less well when you need them the most-during hard braking.

The brake fluid level should be checked periodically, preferably with every oil change. Check your owners manual to determine the recommended interval for changing the brake fluid.

Cabin Air Filter Service

You can breathe cleaner air in your car, truck or SUV by regularly changing the cabin air filter. In a compact area like a vehicle interior, there can be high concentrations of dust, pollen and bacteria, which can affect the health of the driver and/or passengers by aggravating allergies.

Fortunately, a large number of vehicles now have a cabin air filter to clean incoming air. Cabin air filters are electro-statically charged, and work like a magnet to collect pollutants as they try to enter and move through your car.

Please refer to your owners manual for factory recommended maintenance intervals schedule. It should be noted however, that cabin air filter replacement is not always noted in the owner’s manual, so the rule of thumb is replacement about every 15,000 miles.

Fuel Filter Replacement Service

Your fuel filter helps prevent water, dirt particles and other contaminants from getting into your vehicle’s fuel system-where they can clog up your fuel injection system or carburetor. The fuel filter itself can get clogged or contaminated over time, making your car, truck or SUV perform at less than its best.

The fuel filter should be replaced according to your vehicle manufacturer’s specifications, or we recommend about every year or two if you drive under more severe driving conditions-for example, if your car is constantly subjected to the stresses of stop-and-go driving.

Fuel System Cleaning Service

Restore maximum power and performance to your vehicle’s engine with Fuel System Cleaning Service. Almost every car, truck or SUV today uses fuel injection, and fuel injection maintenance is now routinely recommended to keep you car performing at its best.

Following symptoms:

• Trouble starting
• Poor gas mileage and performance
• Hesitating or knocking
• Rough idle

Serpentine Belt Replacement Service

Serpentine belts are critical to the operation of a number of your vehicle’s components, from the water pump to the power steering pump to the alternator to the air conditioning.

That’s why it’s important to have the serpentine belt inspected regularly. A worn serpentine belt is not always obvious, so it’s important to have it changed according to your vehicle manufacturer’s specifications. Timely replacement could mean the difference between trouble-free operation, and just plain old trouble.

Tire Rotation Service

Our Tire Rotation Service will help keep you safe and extend the life of the tires on your vehicle. Tire rotation helps ensure that all of tires wear evenly. Most manufacturers recommend rotation of tires frequently, generally every 6,000 to 12,000 miles, or when tire tread wear appears.

Wiper Blade Replacement Service

Worn blades are easy to overlook, but can pose a serious safety hazard while you are driving. A rule of thumb is to change your wiper blades every six months or so, especially if you live in an area with extreme temperature changes.
