PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE, Sand Springs, OK

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.

He is extremely trustworthy. He won't steer you wrong! He won't try to up sell you something that he doesn't think you need. He will also warn you about things that may need to be done in the near future so you can begin to plan for it.

Ernie took the time to look at my truck for a noise I was hearing and come to find out, it was a piece of gravel that got lodged in between my rotor...He's a good and honest mechanic, definitely one of the good guys!

Amazing Service
reviewicon

I've had two occasions to use Ernie's in the last year and both times the cost was lower than the estimate and this last time he discovered another problem and after checking with me, remedied that as well as still was below the estimate. He's professional, customer oriented and timely and gives a complete overall view of any future problems he can see. Highly recommend this man and his shop.

Knowledgeable Mechanics
reviewicon

I always like it when I see recognition in the eyes of the mechanic when I'm feebly trying to explain what's wrong with a Volvo. It looks like he knows his stuff. And there is no way he is going to be more expensive then the dealership so I bet this 5 star rating is secure.
