Maintenance Tips

Following these simple tips will keep your vehicle running smoothly and reliably.

  1. Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires result in fuel efficiency loss. This is the least expensive form of preventive maintenance..
  2. Remove unnecessary weight and keep your windows closed while driving to improve fuel economy.
  3. The engine is the most expensive element in a vehicle, so make sure to keep fluids maintained. Use high quality fluids wherever you take your car. Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or clogged fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  4. Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect engine performance. Look for cracks or missing segments.
  5. Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked at least every other oil change.
  6. A good rule of thumb is to change your oil filter every 3,000 to 5,000 miles.
  7. Keep a log of all repairs and service.
