PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE, Woodbridge, VA

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.

Testimonials

, 10/01/2020
Lt is a great mechanic and trouble shooter, very easy to work with and up front with his estimates and sticks to it. I have a 2004 Audi A4 Avant 190,000 miles, a great car but at its age it needs some maintenance repairs. Over the last two years a lot of items needed attention. New clutch, AC, Alternator and Brakes. If I had not met LT I would not be driving my favorite car today. The first time I met LT I had an intermittent starting problem. LT has the latest diagnostic equipment and knows how to read it. In less than 5 minutes he solved the problem and replaced 2 sensors. While he was installing the sensors he connected a severed wire to my oil sensor at no charge. If you have an older Import you have got to meet LT. It is a little confusing finding the entrance since it is inside of the Public auto action lot. Just go into the showroom and ask for Lt.
