Why is Maintenance Important?

To make sure that your vehicle is running at its best! Your vehicle manufacturer recommends that certain parts and systems are checked at certain intervals. By following their recommendations, more costly repairs down the road may be avoided.

Maintenance is routinely scheduled services, inspections and part replacements that the manufacturer of your vehicle recommends based on the age or mileage of your vehicle. The schedule for performing these maintenance services varies from vehicle to vehicle. You will find the schedule for your vehicle in your owner’s manual.

Following this schedule is the best way to make sure your vehicle is operating at peak performance.

Scheduled Maintenance: The best way to ensure that you will get the maximum amount of miles out of your car without major breakdowns is to schedule maintenance at 30,000; 60,000; and 90,000 miles. Scheduled maintenance allows us to do a point-by-point vehicle inspection, tune-up (spark plugs, filters, etc.), oil change, and transmission maintenance. Depending on your vehicle and its mileage, we may change belts, re-time the vehicle, and test the battery, among other services. Cost per vehicle can vary depending on inspection. Please call us for more detailed information about our service and pricing.

Transmission Maintenance: Transmission problems are among the most expensive repairs required for your vehicle. That’s because your transmission is a complex system of gears that transmit mechanical power to your engine, ultimately determining the rate of speed you travel. Transmissions convert this power from the engine so that it can supply high torque at low speeds, in addition to selecting which gears are appropriate based on the driving conditions. Cost per vehicle can vary depending on inspection. Please call us for more detailed information about our service and pricing.

Cooling System Maintenance: The cooling system is what is responsible for maintaining the proper operating temperature of you vehicle. Estimates project that over 40% of total engine repair costs are related to problems that originate in the cooling system. And, since we live in an extreme environment, the desert, it is more important then ever to keep this system maintained properly. A system that is not maintained properly can build up rust and scale which interrupts the proper flow of coolant. In turn, this improper or lack of servicing can lead to overheating, breakdowns and costly repairs. This is why it’s important for you to contact us, your coolant service specialists.
