Vehicle maintenance at regular intervals helps keep your car in proper working order. And can prevent expensive repairs down the road. Even the most well-maintained cars will experience unexpected service problems. But it is better to be proactive rather than reactive. Keeping detailed service records can also help boost your car’s value when you decide to sell it or trade it in. Failing to follow preventative maintenance guidelines could even void your car’s warranty. Use this guide to learn about common maintenance recommendations.
3,000 – 5,000 miles – Oil Change
An Oil Change is the most standard maintenance service for every car owner. An oil change every 3,000 - 5,000 miles is essential for keeping the key parts of your engine working properly. We recommend having your tires rotated every 5,000 miles to ensure that they are wearing evenly.
30,000 miles – First Routine Maintenance Service
During your 30,000 Maintenance Service, your vehicle’s hoses and belts are examined. Fluids, such as brake or power steering fluid should be flushed and replenished. Suspension components will be inspected. And tire treads will be measured to determine the life left on your tires.
60,000 miles – Second Routine Maintenance Service
Timing belts are typically replaced every 60,000-70,000 miles. Having your timing belt inspected before any problems occur can help maintain the health of your engine. Vehicles at this timing interval need fluid flushes and brake adjustments. They may need suspension and HVAC checks as well.
75,000 miles – Shocks & Struts
Your shocks and struts play an integral role in keeping your wheels connected to the road. Bad weather and poor road conditions can cause them to wear quicker than usual. The mechanics at Lou’s Car Care will carefully inspect your shocks and struts.
90,000 miles – Third Routine Maintenance Service
