Preventive maintenance is any auto care procedure that helps prevent more extensive or costly repairs down the road. Just like with your health, it’s essential to keep up on recommended maintenance of your vehicle so it can continue to perform as intended and provide dependable transportation around Costa Mesa and beyond.
It’s best to follow your car’s manufacturer-recommended scheduled service, often outlined in the owner’s manual or online. If you’d like assistance in determining which maintenance procedures your vehicle requires and when, contact our helpful service staff for guidance and suggestions.
If your car’s engine or transmission is running rough, you hear unexpected noises, or your vehicle doesn’t handle or brake as confidently as usual, it’s time for a tune-up. We provide engine tune-up services that can help ensure your car’s powertrain is performing efficiently. We also offer tune-ups for other vehicle systems, so contact us to learn more.
How you prepare your vehicle for the winter months depends on where you’ll be driving your car. We’re blessed with mild winters here in the Costa Mesa, CA, area. Still, you may want your car’s heater system checked for those colder mornings and nights. As with other times of the year, winter is an excellent time for an oil change, battery test, tire inspection and general routine maintenance.
Check your tires! Have your tires inspected, rotated and inflated to the proper pressure to help promote safe and fuel-efficient travel on your road trip. It might be a good idea to get a battery test and oil change too. Depending on the weather and season of your road trip, you may want to have our technicians inspect the A/C and heater systems.
