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.

    One Stop Automotive and Tires does it right! It's a small shop with no frills, but with phenomenal customer service, fast results, and a great price! I stop in two or three times a year and somehow they always remember me.

    Rafael and his crew are awesome. I came in with two flat tires an hour before closing time and they hooked me up. They were knowledgeable, fast, courteous and professional!

    One of the best tire repair shop you will find. Super prices and great service. If you need new or good used tires check out One Stop!

  • reviewicon

    Honestly don't think anyone wants to buy new tires, but when you leave a place saying to yourself "wow they were so friendly" it kind of changes your perspective. I live in DC but always leave the city to get any tire change/fix here. The people are genuinely friendly, quick and affordable. Would not go anywhere else!
