Scheduling Services on Time
You should never wait for a breakdown to bring your vehicle to an auto repair shop. Preventive maintenance is crucial for the longevity and performance of any vehicle. Services like an oil change, for example, when routinely performed on a vehicle, decrease the likelihood of a breakdown. While each car is different, it’s important to schedule preventive maintenance on time so your car stays in the best shape possible. An effective preventive maintenance program should involve scheduled appointments based on measurements like mileage, fuel use, or engine hours.
Following Up on Inspection Findings
Using the findings from regular inspections is essential to get the most significant benefits from a preventive maintenance program. These findings will bring to light any problems that need attention so they can be addressed immediately and quickly instead of when they become more evident, complex, and expensive.
Preventive Maintenance Best Practices
Commit to routine maintenance if you want to keep your vehicle running well for as long as possible. Here are four preventive care best practices recommended by the team at Knudsen’s Auto Specialists:
- Regular Oil Changes - Consistent, on-time oil changes, typically dependent on time or mileage, are the best way to keep your vehicle’s engine running well. A standard oil change can extend the life of your engine and help prevent breakdowns.
- Tire Rotations and Wheel Alignments - Get the most mileage out of your tires and reduce gasoline costs with regular tire rotations and wheel alignments. Tire rotations should be done each time you have an oil change, and wheel alignments are recommended approximately once a year.
- Fluid Flushes - Over time, fluids like coolant, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and power steering fluid can break down and become less effective. Vital fluids should be replaced regularly to keep the different operating systems in your vehicle lubricated and functioning properly.
When it comes to car maintenance best practices, the team at Knudsen’s Auto Specialists can provide all the services your vehicle needs to run effectively for a very long time.
