PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

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.

What People Say About Us

    Left my car there while on vacation, kept me informed, car runs great. Fixed a seal, stopped oil leaking, and established I needed a new battery. Thank you, Tracy and Linda Norris!

    Got us in last minute for some repairs that could have been catastrophic if we continued down the road. They could have easily gouged us knowing we were in a pinch and just trying to get home but were upfront, honest and personable. Would recommend to anyone.

    Incredibly impressed with the service and how informative our experience was. They were able to get us in on very short notice and explained to us exactly what was going on with my car. I definitely plan on coming back for any mechanical needs that we may have in the future.

    This shop is absolutely fantastic. These guys went out of their way to fix our problem. We are from Spokane Washington and we needed to get home. These guys worked outside in 30 degree weather to fix our RV so we can make it home. If I'm ever in the area again and need work done these are the first guys that I will go to, to have it completed. The owner even went out of his way to call me to make sure that I made it home okay. Thank you so much for going out of your way to make sure that I made it home and our RV was repaired.

    Great staff!! Great service!! Had a emergency while traveling and showed up one morning with some work needing to be done and was able to fit me in and get it done. Had my own parts and price was very reasonable. Would definitely recommend this shop.

    Cole is great to work with! I had a problem with my wife's care and he was able to find the issue and replace the part. I was able to use the car while we waited for parts. Every aspect of their work was great.

    Friendly, straightforward, and honest. We were just traveling through and I feared some kind of up sell. Nothing like that happened. I wish I lived in Gillette so I could take my car there all the time.
