Small preventative care can save money and time

Taking a simple and inexpensive preventive measure will extend the life of the vehicle and make it safer on the road.


  • Change the oil filter every 3,000 - 4,000 miles, or as recommended.

  • Have all fluids checked, including: brake, power steering, transmission, windshield washer solvent, and antifreeze.

  • Check tire pressure once a month.

  • Keep your engine tuned.

  • Check battery for corrosion and clean them as needed.

  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including: headlights, turn signals, and brake lights and taillights.

  • Check for signs that your windshield washer blades need changing. Check for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year.

  • Inspect engine belts. 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.
