When should you come in for your factory scheduled maintenance?

The easiest and most cost effective maintenance item is an oil change, you should expect to change your vehicle’s oil and filter regularly (3,000 to 5,000 miles depending on oil type) to keep it in good running order. However, that’s just the beginning, as there are many other components that require regularly scheduled maintenance. Choosing a qualified auto mechanic for regular maintenance helps you avoid many costly repairs down the road. Our scheduled auto maintenance mechanics in Homer Glen are ready to help you extend the longevity of your car.

You can call us at 708-981-3856 for your vehicle’s maintenance schedule or check your owner’s manual for their recommended factory maintenance schedule milestones. This way you’ll know when you should take your car in for periodic maintenance; most owner’s manuals will have the milestones listed in both years and mileage. The type of driving and the conditions you normally drive in will also affect how often you need to have certain services done. That’s why it’s best to ask an auto technician when and how you should get your car serviced.

Signs your car may need scheduled maintenance. 

The first sign you may need scheduled auto maintenance is if your car has a warning sign, such as stalling, the check engine light, or uneven tire wear. All of these signs can indicate a larger problem, which is what scheduled maintenance works to prevent. By adhering to a regular schedule for your maintenance, you’ll be fixing issues before they affect your driving. Regular maintenance also helps improve your fuel efficiency and the longevity of your vehicle.  Regular car maintenance can help increase your vehicle’s trade-in or resale value.

Even if you don’t think something is “wrong” with your car, experts still advise that you have your car regularly inspected for any possible issues. Your vehicle may need a timing belt, spark plugs, be low on transmission fluid and many other things that can affect the performance of your vehicle, both in fuel economy and driving. Another consideration is that you need scheduled auto maintenance services to make sure that you’re ready for the change of the seasons. With winter comes snow, ice and slush, plus salt, all of which take their toll on your car. Keeping up with a regular maintenance schedule means preparing your vehicle for the arrival of winter, and reducing the possibility you won’t have a car that won’t start when the weather is rough.
