Common Maintenance Guidelines

Fluid Exchanges. Transmission Fluid and Oil Changes
Fluid Exchange

Typically you want to have your oil changed every 3,000 miles, however, some newer cars extend this figure to 7,000 miles.
You should have your radiator coolant changed and your radiator flushed at least every 60,000 miles.

Tire Rotation
Tire Rotation
Rotating your tires can save them from uneven wear. Most newer vehicles require a tire rotation every 5,000 miles. You may want to combine this service with your scheduled oil change.
Filter Replacement
Air Filter
Your vehicle's fuel system needs clean air to run efficiently. Remember to have your air filter changed at least every 15,000 miles.
Brake Line Repair
Brake Pads
Don't let your brake pads wear below a quarter of an inch. If you let the brake pads wear down to the metal you risk ruining your brake rotors and ABS sensors (if the vehicle is equipped).
Battery Check
Battery Check
Have the battery inspected once a year and replace if necessary.
Preventive Maintenance
Follow your vehicle's regular maintenance schedule for tuneups to ensure your vehicle continues to run properly.
