Oil changes, tire rotations and regular tune ups are examples of preventative maintenance for your vehicle that can prevent major car problems down the road. If you make these small investments in your car, then over time you can expect to save money on more serious repairs. It is also important to have your vehicle serviced by a certified technician so that small and manageable problems do not turn into larger (more expensive) ones. Clark Automotive is a full-service car repair shop in Blaine, MN, that can help you with preventative maintenance so that you can enjoy your vehicle for many years to come!
Benefits Of Regular Oil Changes
Oil changes are important because your engine’s oil can lose its lubrication quality and viscosity over time. An oil change will keep your engine running well, prevent it from getting overheated and get rid of dirt and debris which will make your engine run less efficiently. Failing to get regular oil changes can result in damage to your engine. Routine oil changes are one of the most important ways to extend the life of your vehicle and protect your investment.
Tire Rotations And Engine Tune Ups
Tire rotations are another important preventative maintenance strategy. We recommend rotating your tires every third oil change (approximately every 9000 miles). This helps you prevent tire damage and keep the tread even so that you wear down your tires evenly. If you do not rotate your tires regularly, your tires can become damaged, and this can impact steering and the overall safety of the vehicle.
A vehicle tune up can be helpful when you have noticed an overall decline in how your vehicle is performing or the overall feel while you are driving. Clark Automotive will check your spark plugs, change your transmission fluid, replace your air, oil and fuel filters, check for leaks and complete a thorough oil change. Very often a tune up will be just what your vehicle needs to get back to its optimal driving condition.
