PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

Courtesy of the Automotive Service Association

The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments.
  • Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

    One word: honest. It is hard to find a good honest mechanic in this area that will good your car for a decent rate and not try to rip you off. They aren't the cheapest but they are very reasonable with their pricing. The manager is also very helpful and straight forward with what he recommends.

    These guys are a class act. My son, who's off in college, was driving through Brea when his car overheated. Because of him being out of town I did a yelp search of close businesses. I saw these guys had a 5 star review. I called them. They had 15 min until closing time, but they dropped everything to help him. Not only did they help him they wouldn't take money from him even though they had significant time and some parts involved. If I lived anywhere near them I'd never use anyone else. This story speaks to nothing but integrity and care for other humans. Great job guy!

    Trustworthy, family owned, legitimate repair shop that won't try to stab you for the "ups and extras". REAL mechanics doing REAL diagnostics, not just plugging in a computer and working from a list of protocols. I don't send family or friends anywhere else.
