It is imperative to take great care of your car, truck or SUV if you want it to cover many miles of roadway during its lifetime. While some maintenance services are necessary more frequently than others, it is always important to have routine services completed as scheduled by the vehicle manufacturer. To find out when your car is due for service be sure to consult your owner's manual or just ask the friendly team at Austin Auto Repair. We will be happy to get you set up with a proper maintenance schedule that will keep your car reliable for years and years. Give us a call to schedule auto maintenance in Austin or to learn more about our services!
Routine auto maintenance is often referred to as 30/60/90K maintenance because many vehicles require services every 30,000 miles. During these appointments your vehicle will undergo a variety of services including computer diagnostics, safety checks, transmission service, wheel and tire services, filter replacements, belt and hose inspections and more, all to ensure a safe and reliable ride.
The most frequent service that your vehicle will require is an oil change. All cars and trucks need this service to ensure that the engine is properly lubricated and protected from nasty metal on metal friction that can cause damage to the interior parts of the engine. For most vehicles an oil change is necessary between every 3,000 and 7,500 miles, but again, be sure to check your owner's book to ensure your car gets the maintenance it needs, when it needs it!
If your car doesn't seem to be running right it could be time for a tune up. This generally entails quick, inexpensive services to restore power and fuel efficiency. Services may include spark plug and spark plug wire replacement, fuel filter replacement, air filter replacement, battery services, fuel injector cleaning and more.
All vehicles use a number of specialized fluids to operate. From time to time they need to be drained and refilled to keep them free of contaminants. This includes completing a cooling system flush, power steering flush, brake fluid flush, transmission fluid flush or differential flush.
Never put off timing belt replacement. If the belt is due for service make an appointment right away. A damaged timing belt could lead to major engine complications requiring expensive repairs.
