To help make sure your vehicle is always in the best condition possible, bring it in so we can inspect the parts and components for you. If there is anything that should be repaired or replaced, we can recommend what should be done. By having proper maintenance done on your vehicle, you can help to improve the longevity of it. If you notice anything out of the norm with the vehicle between visits, make sure to schedule an appointment so the issue can be resolved as soon as possible. Ignoring an issue can lead to further damage, as well as time, money, and stress.

 

One thing to never forget is regular oil changes. The oil is important because it will lubricate the parts of the engine. This will help them to work efficiently with one another and at top performance levels. Without oil, the parts will start to have strain against one another and cause friction. This can lead to damage to parts of the engine. If the oil is completely used up, it can lead to engine failure. If you are not sure how often to have the oil changed, make sure to contact us. We can advise you on the correct schedule so the vehicle can be well maintained.

 

Also take some time and inspect each tire on the vehicle. The air pressure should be at the correct amount indicated in the vehicle owner’s manual. This way they can rotate efficiently when you drive. Also check the tread wear on each tire. The tread is important because it will help to grip the surface of the road when you drive. This is beneficial for roads that are wet or slick. If you notice that the tread wear is uneven, make sure to bring the vehicle in and we can inspect the tires for you. If the tread is uneven, we may recommend an alignment or tire rotation for the vehicle. You can also check the tread yourself by using just a penny. Place the penny upside down in the tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, then the tire should be replaced. This can help you to have a pleasant driving experience.
