Proper oil maintenance will help extend the life of your vehicle. Generally it is recommended to change your oil every 3,000 miles or 3 months, whichever comes first (Follow your owner's manual recommendations).
Even if you do not drive often, the engine oil could get contaminated as a result of accumulated moisture. Contaminants are whipped into the oil as it runs through your engine. Neglected oil will eventually turn these contaminants into sludge. Sludge could eventually cause engine failure.
What is an air filter? The engine air filter stops airborne contaminants from getting sucked into your vehicle's engine such as dust, leaves, and debris before it can do damage to the engine.Read more
Wiper blades are one of the most neglected components on the majority of vehicles today. They are a key part to ensuring that you can see safely during rain, snow, and sleet.Read more
Motor oil plays a vital part of the engine. You can consider it the blood of the engine. But unlike the blood in your body, it needs to be replaced. Not only does the oil become dirty, but the additives in oil (which play such a vital part of its performance) begin to break down and can no longer perform.
During our multipart service, all of the engine's oil is replaced along with the oil filter. Vital under hood fluids are checked and replenished to the recommended level (excluding brake fluid). This, along with checking your engine's air filter, inspecting your wiper blades, adjusting the tires to the recommended pressure, and cleaning your windshield is done in just a few short minutes.
Our certified, friendly technicians will provide you with a "next service due" sticker, reset your maintenance indicator light (where applicable) and offer you a complimentary beverage while you wait comfortably in your own vehicle.
If your air filter gets too dirty or clogged, your engine won't be able to suck enough air into the combustion chambers. The engine will then run rich (too much gas and not enough air). When this happens, your vehicle may lose power and the engine may run roughly. Additionally, your "Check Engine" warning light may come on.
If you really neglect the air filter for a long time, your vehicle may stop running altogether. While permanent damage is unlikely, it is possible. If an air filter were sufficiently dirty and damaged, it could allow harmful, abrasive contaminants into the combustion chamber.
Since wiper blades are not used every day and are exposed to various weather conditions, there is not a precise mileage or time interval in which to replace them.
Ask yourself "How were my wiper blades working when it last rained". If you were not happy with your answer, you should have them inspected and possibly replaced.
