Part of being an automobile owner is taking care of your vehicle. And while emergency car repairs are inevitable for many of us, there are the more common maintenance issues that need to be addressed on a regular basis. Here are the most common car repair and maintenance issues we see at Auto Electric.
Your vehicle’s oil should be changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. This will help to keep it in the best possible condition, extend your engine’s life and prevent more serious – and expensive – repairs from occurring.
A vehicle’s brake pads endure a lot of wear and tear, meaning you’ll need brake pad work done several times over the life of your car or truck. It pays to keep your brake pads in good condition, and the work is moderately priced.
Tires can either be quickly repaired in the event of a sidewall split or if you run over a sharp object causing it to leak and lose air. However, if your tires are losing tread or other more serious issues, you’ll most likely have to replace them. You can put this office with regular rotations balancing.
Replace your fuel filter on a regular basis to ensure your fuel system remains in good working order. You can avoid fuel pump clogs and repairs by not driving your vehicle when you have less than a quarter-tank of gas remaining.
To ensure your transmission remains in good working order, it’s imperative to keep transmission fluid at proper levels and in good condition. Some minor issues can be alleviated by changing the fluid, while others can be more expensive and complex.
