According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
I took my car in because I had steam coming out of the vents and defroster. A friend told me it was probably the heater core leaking which is what I told the lady at the desk when I dropped it off. But Joe checked it out and told me I didn't have a problem. He could have replaced it and charged me an arm and a leg and i would have been none to wiser. He was honest and didn't charge me a dime to evaluate it. We need more Honest businesses like this.
Joe and his crew did in 3 hours what Crain Hyundai couldn't do in 6 weeks. Great service! Good value! Take it to Joe's Garage!
Great auto repair shop for the everyday working american. Dealer quality work on my s type jaguar without the Dealer price. The price quoted was the price I had to pay, not like some mechanic jacking the price up once they get your vehicle. Honest hard working folks.
Wouldn't trust anyone else with my vehicle! They really go the extra mile to help you. They are honest about repair costs and will let you know exactly what you need to get your vehicle back on the road. Repairs are never cheap but it sure beats tens of thousands on a new vehicle.
Fantastic shop. We had a flat tire driving thru on the interstate and needed a place to get it fixed. We picked Joe's at random from Google, and are we ever glad. The service was fast and friendly. The lady behind the desk got out a box of toys for our children, who had been in the van all day. It was a very pleasant break. Thanks!
These guys are always looking after their customers. I walked in first thing in the morning and was treated as if I'd had an appointment. The quality of service is top notch, and Joe and his crew are always helpful and courteous!
