PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

Courtesy of the Automotive Service Association

The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. 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. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

  • -Sean K.

    These guys saved me 3000 bucks. Not kidding. Dealership estimate was 4300. Allan and his guys got the work done for way cheaper and in about 24 hrs. They're honest and friendly. Stop paying the dealership. Go see these dudes.


  • -Jesse J.

    These guys really know their way around cars! They will get my business every time! Great people too!


  • -Erin P.

    I have a 2001 prius. Its old but a great car. Scenic City knows what they are doing with it and always make sure that all of it is running correctly. They fix its loud roar for only about $350 as it was a wheel issue. Every dealership i went to said i had a bad cat. Converter which is a 2000 dollar repair. They found out it was fine. Now my car runs like its new. I would highly recommend them especially to hybrid owners!


  • -Elliott E.

    We had a van break down en route to Florida. Alan saved the day! They looked at it right away, were clear about what they could find and what they might find and got us back on the road the same day. Very professional. Very honest.
