Preventative maintenance extends the life of your vehicle and keeps it running safely and efficiently. That’s the plain and simple truth. When you bring your vehicle into Anderson Automotive for each recommended service visit, we can assess the health of the system in question and the parts that make up that system.
Filter and Oil Change
Whether you need a filter and oil change every 3,000 or 7,500 miles, we will get you in and out quickly. Motor oil is the lifeblood of your engine, and dirty or thin oil can damage crucial engine parts. We recommend regular oil changes for optimal viscosity to protect those parts.
Your automobile’s chassis also requires regular lubrication. The chassis is your car, truck, or SUV’s undercarriage. The undercarriage is made up of the shocks or struts, springs, steering arms, and suspension springs. These parts require lubrication to operate at their best.
Your vehicle has other fluids that require maintenance, including your radiator and transmission. If you drive a vehicle with power steering, this fluid needs to be changed at recommended intervals, as does your AC coolant and brake fluid. We’ll top off your window washer well, too.
Don’t believe the hype that your vehicle has “life-long” transmission oil in it. No transmission oil is life-long, and it’s a good idea to let remove the pan and inspect it for leaks or other wear, replace the pan gasket, flush and change the transmission oil, and adjust your manual clutch.
No vehicle has life-long spark plugs, plug wires, or fuel injectors, either. We’ll check your onboard electronics, the battery, the power balance, look for engine air leaks, verify your ignition timing and idle speed, and, of course, change the plugs, wires, and injectors when necessary.
Tire Rotation and Balances
To prevent uneven wear and the risk of blowouts, your tires should be rotated and balanced regularly. This might come as a shock to you, but the recommended tire rotation schedule is every 6,000 to 8,000 miles. We can rotate your tires every other oil change.
We recommend that you have your wheels aligned every two to three years in order to optimize the handling and safety of your vehicle. Our team has state of the art alignment equipment in addition to our expertise to ensure that your wheels are in precise alignment.
Mileage Milestone Services
Your vehicle’s manufacturer recommends mileage milestone services at 30,000, 60,000, and 90,000 miles. Depending on the milestone, these services include crucial maintenance such as changing the timing belt to prevent severe engine damage. Don’t ignore these crucial services.
