Engine Maintenance

When paying thousands of dollars for a vehicle, you certainly don’t want that money to go to waste. By keeping the engine maintained, you can save thousands of dollars on engine repairs. It’s a shame to see a vehicle with tens of thousands of miles of life left go to the scrapyard. There are certain steps you can take as a car owner to prolong the life of your vehicle’s engine. Those include:

  • Changing the engine oil every 3,000 miles
  • Not driving with a low oil level
  • Preventing the car from overheating by regularly checking fluid levels
  • Keep idling to a minimum
  • Getting engine tune ups regularly
  • Changing engine belts when needed
  • Changing the air filter at regular intervals

Neglecting these steps can weaken your engine, and even shorten its life. Don’t let easily prevented issues leave you without a vehicle. We can provide proper engine repair and give your vehicle a long life.
