Regular maintenance can keep your car running longer and save you money in the long run. It’s one of the most effective ways to ensure you don’t need our breakdown services!
Regular oil changes are one of the most important steps to maintaining your vehicle. Engine oil stops lubricating and absorbing heat as effectively as it ages. By changing your oil regularly, you can prevent your engine from overheating and keep your engine running smoothly. Regular oil should be changed every 3,000 miles and synthetic oil every 5,000 miles.
The safety of your car depends on the reliability of your braking system. Since brake pads use friction to slow wheel rotation, it’s important to regularly check their thickness to ensure you will be able to stop the car quickly if needed. Brake fluid should also be changed every two years to ensure it can effectively translate the pressure you put on the pedal into braking force.
The transmission is one of the most complex mechanisms in your car. It uses fluid to transfer hydraulic pressure, shift gears and to lubricate all moving parts. To keep the car accelerating effectively, it’s important to regularly check the level of your transmission fluid and to replace it when needed.
