Here are a few ways to improve your four-wheel investment so it runs for many more years, pollutes less and burns less gasoline.

Monthly Tire Check-ups. If your tires in Olathe have low pressure, your engine will end up working harder and burn more gasoline just to move your vehicle. You should use a tire-pressure gauge to make sure your pressure specifications are correct, or simply stop by our shop and we’ll be happy to check them for you.

Follow Service Recommendations. Your owner’s manual mentions recommended service maintenance intervals. Be sure to stay on top of it! You can create a calendar for your vehicle’s routine maintenance as a reminder. Our ASE certified technicians will be more than happy to discuss which maintenance they recommend for your specific vehicle.

Routine Oil and Filter Changes. Oil is the blood of the engine. It keeps the engine’s parts lubricated and from becoming corroded and pitted. Regular changes are needed to remove contaminants that the engine creates over time.

Never Ignore a "Service Engine" Light. Those lights were created to help your vehicle express its needs to you. Take your vehicle to a reliable auto repair shop in Olathe as soon as you can.

Resolve to Become a Safer Driver. Avoid sudden accelerations and brakes because it wastes fuel and strains the engine. Aggressive starts and stops will also wear your brakes out faster. If possible, use the cruise control to maintain a steady pace.

Have an ASE-Certified Technician check your vehicle’s needs. Resolving to take better care of your car will automatically result in more savings for the New Year because routine maintenance will help avoid expensive damages.

It’s important to care as much about your vehicle as you do about yourself because it is a friend that carries you through many of your daily routines every year!
