Routine Maintenance

Oil Change Service

Oil changes performed at regular intervals will help to keep your engine in top driving condition. Typically, oil changes should be done every three to five thousand miles, but "severe" driving, hight dust or high heat may require more frequent oil changes. An average oil change consists of draining the old oil, and replacing it with oil specifically formulated for your vehicle, as well as a new oil filter.

Air Filter Replacement

Air filters are designed to clean the air, needed by your engine, to run properly. When these filters become dirty or clogged, the air flow is restricted. This can lead to a reduction in gas mileage, as well as engine damage, if use of a dirty filter is prolonged. As a general rule, your air filter should be checked every 15,000 miles, and replaced every 30,000. If you drive in harsh conditions frequently, please note that filters could need changing sooner.

Battery Replacement

Your Battery provides the power necessary to start your vehicles engine. It also supplements the charging system during periods of high demand. Batteries should be replaced every 3-5 years depending on the quality that is currently installed.

Belt Inspection and Replacement

The belt system of a motor is the basic connection that allows separate parts to run in unison. Over time, the belt can become worn or cracked. This can be due to age, heat and also stress, which is all normal wear and tear. The belts of your vehicle should be inspected with every oil change (please see above "Oil Change Service" for specific mileage), and replaced every five years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Fuel Filter Replacement

Fuel filters are key for removing contaminant that may enter the gas tank of your vehicle. The removing of these particles will allow the internal parts of the motor (fuel injectors, valves, etc.) to stay clean and unclogged. A stopped up fuel filter can also cause unneeded strain on a fuel pump accelerating failure. These filters should be replaced once a year, or every 15,000-25,000 miles, whichever comes first.
