The best way to prevent long-term and costly problems to your vehicle is to keep up with its preventative maintenance schedule. One major key to successfully making sure you are doing all you need to do is to read your vehicle’s owner’s manual. Regardless of your vehicle’s make or model, its owner’s manual will contain a maintenance schedule. Every make and model is different, and standby beliefs such as “You have to change your oil every 3,000 miles,” may not apply to your car.
The maintenance schedule within your owner’s manual is provided by the people who understand your vehicle the best—the company that built it. The manufacturer provides suggestions for how often you need to change your oil, filters, driving belts, timing belts and more.
While some preventative maintenance—such as topping off fluids—can be performed by the vehicle’s owner, other, more complicated procedures should be done by auto technician specialists like the team at Zylstra Automotive. Our Visalia auto repair team can keep your vehicle in top shape by performing the following maintenance:
This can keep your car comfortable during the hot summer months.
You may need to replace your engine air filter more frequently if you drive in stop-and-go traffic or have a long commute.
This helps ensure even wear on your tires, which can help prevent blowouts and leaking. It also helps make your ride smoother.
Balancing your tires prevents wear, which can significantly improve their life and save you money.
By following your vehicle’s owner’s manual and having your vehicle inspected and maintained regularly, you can greatly reduce problems and save money in the long run. Let the expert team at Zylstra Automotive in Visalia help your vehicle stay in good condition.
