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.

Reviews

Sparks accepted to do electrical work on my rare 1973 Volvo P1800 ES. Julie, the service manager, is courteous and well qualified. She asked all the right questions prior to appointment and kept in touch during the arduous search for the problem. I was allowed to talk with the mechanics when they had difficulty finding a nonstock park needed. The mechanics were were technically proficient and polite. The company was patient while I ordered parts. A few days after the work was done and I had picked the car up, Patrick gave me a follow up call. In short, the people at Sparks, admin, mechanics and owner, are all professionals and I highly recommend the company.

Patrick & his amazing, friendly, compassionate & thorough team treated me with such respect & walked me through step by step what needed and didn't need to be done to my vehicle. This organization is top drawer and I can not recall ever being treated so well at a maintenance facility. In addition there level of communication is outstanding! Deej, Acura owner.
