It seems that many drivers do not know what regular maintenance should be done on a car. As long as their car gets them from Point A to Point B, they may never think about vehicle maintenance items. Plus, their monthly budget may not allow for seemingly unnecessary items. Although it’s true that keeping up with vehicle maintenance is an expense, the potential costs of damage that can happen in your vehicle’s engine, transmission, and suspension due to lack of maintenance is much greater. Extending the time between service intervals doesn’t really save you money.

Just as we humans go to our medical doctors for physical check-ups, so your vehicle needs a visit to your auto shop. Preventative vehicle maintenance makes sure your car stays in good health! Ask your auto mechanic about a multi-point inspection. It is a good way to find out if there are any issues with your car that need to be taken care of. Here are the most common items included in that inspection:

If you’re a driver that does not understand what regular maintenance should be done on a car, you may find yourself stranded on the side of the road.

You head out the door in a rush and your car won’t start.  You don’t know if it is a dead battery, a failing alternator, or a starter that has gone bad.  Your starting problem may not be the starter. It could be that the battery is not packing enough juice to start your vehicle, or maybe you left your headlights on all night. Or maybe the battery is just old and needs to be replaced.  

Or, the alternator may not be doing its job of keeping the battery charged. If the warning light on your instrument panel is on--the one that typically looks like a car battery--your alternator is not working and your vehicle is probably running strictly off the battery.

Okay, you have ruled out the battery and the alternator.  Now you need to know, what are the symptoms of a bad starter?   

Wondering what are the symptoms of a bad starter? Ask your auto repair expert at Express Care Auto Center to check the alternator and battery too.

You want a safe and reliable vehicle, but you may be wondering how often should it be serviced? You may get varying answers depending on the auto shop, but the answer is actually quite simple. Follow the factory recommended maintenance schedule in the service manual for your car. This will help ensure that you are driving as safe as possible especially as you face these unexpected wintery storms.

With advanced technology in the newer cars on the market, the in-vehicle reminder system makes it easier than ever to know when to take your vehicle into your auto center for maintenance. This reminder system takes a number of operating conditions into account and provides an alert on the dash when it is time for certain maintenance services, such oil changes, fluid level checks, brake inspections, and other maintenance services. Even though you should be able to trust these systems, it’s would be wise to double-check with your auto center technician, especially if you don’t put many miles on your vehicle during a year’s time.

Your auto center has probably suggested automotive service every year. If you want your car to give you many miles of service, need advice from your auto shop.
