PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

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.

    I love how kind and quick they are. Derek is a Rockstar along with the rest of the crew. I never want to take my vehicle to another repair shop again. They won't scam you on repairs, I have a family of mechanics who all live hours from me and when I call about repairs I tell them what JD Auto is doing and what they are charging, my family says it's a fair price. I love this place.

    I broke down with a flat tire right next to JD Auto and was pretty much stranded had they not helped. I never caught the name of the person who helped me and put my spare (donut) tire on but they were awesome! I was so relieved and grateful that they lent a hand to me. The staff I interacted with were super friendly and I definitely know where I'll be going next for any repairs!

    Excellent customer service and reasonable prices. I was thoroughly pleased at the service and care given to me and my automobile when I desperately needed an alternator belt replaced on a Saturday afternoon. I cannot say THANK YOU enough!!! I would recommend JD's to everyone!

    I was traveling on vacation and I blow a hose on my truck that powers the brakes and power steering. I call all over and nobody could look at my truck for 2 days. JD Auto dropped what they were doing and help me out and got me and the family on the road again. Thanks!!!
