Preventative Maintenance

Routine Car Maintenance

The best way to prevent long-term and costly problems with your vehicle is to keep up with its preventative maintenance schedule. One major key to successfully making sure you are doing all you need to do is to read your vehicle’s owner’s manual. Regardless of your vehicle’s make or model, its owner’s manual will contain a maintenance schedule. Every make and model is different, and standby beliefs such as “You have to change your oil every 3,000 miles,” may not apply to your car.

The Importance of Preventative Service and Maintenance

The maintenance schedule within your owner’s manual is provided by the people who understand your vehicle the best – the company that built it. The manufacturer provides suggestions for how often you need to change your oil, filters, driving belts, timing belts and more.

Some preventative maintenance such as topping off fluids, can be performed by the vehicle’s owner. However, other more complicated procedures should be done by experts like the team at Industrial Park Automotive . By following your vehicle’s owner’s manual and having your vehicle inspected and maintained regularly, you can greatly reduce problems and save money in the long run. Our team can keep your vehicle in top shape by performing the following maintenance:
