Short-Term Check-Ups

To best explain the various types of vehicle maintenance, we've broken them up into two sections, short-term and long-term check-ups. Let's begin with a list of short-term procedures.

Tread Depth & Tire Pressure: Fuel efficiency and safety benefit from tires that are properly cared for. It's recommended to check the pressure in your tires once a month. Heavy loads, longer trips, and cooler weather can cause a decrease in tire pressure, so check more frequently under those circumstances.

Brake, Parking Lights, Headlights & Turn Signals: Your vehicle's lights are integral for overall drivability. Luckily, ensuring everything is in working order is a breeze. Give them a check monthly by turning your headlights on while parked, as well as taking a walk around your car to inspect turn signals, parking lights, and brake lights.

Oil & Coolant Levels: Low levels of both oil and/or coolant can lead to engine problems if they go unnoticed. Take a peek under the hood of your car monthly to give each a look.

     

Many of these short-term inspections can be performed at home. However, if you come to the conclusion that something is amiss, we recommend bringing your car into our service center.

Long Term Check-Ups

Long-term check-ups are equally as important in providing essential care to your ride. Here are a few of the most common long-term services.

Transmission Fluid Check: Transmission fluid is a lubricant that works to keep the parts of your transmission functioning effectively. Getting your vehicle's transmission checked and/or changed as needed maintains performance and helps prevent possible damage. Exact intervals for this service vary by vehicle, so be sure to check your owner's manual.

Inspect Shocks and Struts: Not only do shocks and struts control impact when driving over bumps, but they are an essential component of your car's steering system. It's recommended to have them inspected by a professional every 50,000 miles.

Check Spark Plugs: Spark plugs ignite the engine's gas and help to power your vehicle. Faulty spark plugs could result in decreased engine power, so be sure to have them checked by a technician in accordance with your vehicle's manual.
