PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

Courtesy of the Automotive Service Association

The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments.
  • Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

    I've been using Joe and all the guys at X-Pert Auto for at least 5 years (maybe more!). I Have a 20 yr old SUV that they keep running in tip top shape and 2 diesel trucks. Can't be happier. Always knowledgeable. Have recommended to many of my friends and they use them now too!

    I have been so pleased with the service and support that I receive at X-PERT Auto each time I go. They are professional and very thorough. Work completed on the car is explained clearly and the office staff is welcoming and efficient.

    I brought my car into XPert Automotive for servicing. Wanted to use an independent business close to home. Found the team to be very knowledgeable and pleasant. My battery was low and instead of selling me a new battery, Joe Pate, the owner, called to say he could charge the battery for a few hours and retest it. Turns out that did the trick. Saved me money. I was impressed with his honesty and integrity. Will definitely be going back for my next service!

    Warning light came on. Filled out appointment form at 9pm. 8:10am next morning received a call. Brought car in that day. They said they would get to it asap based on workload. Received a call next day stating what the problem was, repair options and pricing. Gave the go ahead. Another call about parts availabilities and when this was resolved. Next call was that vehicle was ready. Communication was the key to my high rating for them.

Shelley and Frankie are outstanding employees, friendly and efficient. All service is very thorough, but pricing is highly reasonable. Cannot say enough good things about their service and expertise. First time I have ever completely trusted this type of service.
