What is Factory Auto Maintenance?


When a vehicle is being designed the engineers must consider what sort of maintenance the mechanical systems of the vehicle will require in order to avoid breakdowns, decreased performance and other problems. As they design the engine, transmission and other components the mileage intervals of the necessary maintenance will be determined and listed in the owner's manual of the vehicle. If you neglect your vehicle of maintenance it will likely fall into despair and require expensive repair. Always be sure your car receives the auto maintenance it requires to stay healthy!

30/60/90K Services

For many vehicles they require service every 30,000 miles, giving this maintenance the name 30/60/90K. During these services technicians will conduct a variety of remove and replace procedures for filters and other parts as well as run diagnostics and inspect other parts for signs of wear.

Oil Change

The most frequent service that your car will need is an oil change. Many vehicles require them every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, depending on the make and model. Oil changes ensure the engine is properly lubricated and the oil change process restore power and performance by removing engine gunk.

Tune Up

If your vehicle is between major services but isn't running quite right it may need a tune up. Tune ups often include replacing the air filter and fuel filter, installing new spark plugs, cleaning the battery terminals, conducting a fuel system cleanse and other minor services.

Timing Belt Repair

Be sure to always replace the timing belt on time. If you do not have this service conducted it is likely the timing belt will snap. This would result in massive engine damage!
