All of our professional technicians at Xpress Lube emphasize the importance of following the recommended express oil change schedule outlined in your owner’s manual.
This one good habit will do more to improve the efficiency and extend the life of your vehicle than any other single maintenance service.
But a regular express oil change isn’t the only good habit a conscientious driver should have.
According to ConsumerAffairs.com, drivers these days plan on driving their vehicles an average of ten years, both because they are built better and are more dependable and because new vehicles are more and more expensive to purchase.
What this means is that a responsible owner must be aware of the maintenance services that are most necessary to guarantee the best performance and longest life.
Review the recommendations of your vehicle’s manufacturer for tire pressure and check yours regularly. Tires lose air with normal driving and extreme weather conditions just worsen the situation. It’s important to know that under-inflated tires will wear down more quickly and will cause your vehicle to use more gasoline per mile in the meantime. Also, you can extend the life of your tires by rotating them regularly to even out the wear. Tires aren’t cheap, so take good care of them.
Express Oil Change
All your fluids, really, require periodic topping off or flushing and replacement. Newer vehicles need oil changes every 5,000 miles (every 3,000 miles for older models). And, when you bring your car in for your regular express oil change, we will check all fluid levels to help keep your vehicle running in tip-top form.
The good news is that newer cars don’t need regular tune-ups like older models did. So much of the vehicle is computer-regulated these days like valve adjustment and timing control. Even today’s spark plugs are manufactured to last for many thousands of miles before being replaced. You will want to have a comprehensive maintenance check when your odometer hits 60,000 and 12,000 miles to make sure everything is in good working order, though.
Other than these, your annual vehicle inspection will reveal any smaller maintenance or repair that is necessary. Keep up with those and your car should give you many years of reliable transportation.
