When to take your car for a service

When to take your car for a service


We know that your vehicle is one of the largest investments you have made, and as such you want your vehicle to last as long as possible and be in top condition. The majority of vehicles require a regular service every 30,000 miles.

A regular service can help protect your vehicle from major engine problems by locating and replacing worn components, like fuel filters and spark plugs. Having a regular service schedule will assist your vehicle in boosting fuel efficiency as well as extending its life expectancy.

Every part of your vehicle has a limited life expectancy, so it shouldn’t be a surprise when your vehicle shows signs of wear and tear. The life expectancy of each component is shown in your owner's manual with specific manufacturer benchmarks, this is usually around every 30,000 miles. However, sometimes these components can last much longer than the suggested time frame, especially if you take good care of your vehicle. If you want to avoid major problems in the future and have your vehicle run well for 500,000 miles or more, you should have a vehicle inspection performed on regular basis.

Symptoms that indicate your vehicle is in need of a service include:

  • Air flow issues
  • Engine sounds, like knocks or pings
  • Slow acceleration
  • Noticeable electrical issues
  • Poor gasoline mileage


A complete vehicle service, performed by our certified technicians, consists of:

  • Inspection and filling all fluids
  • Installing new spark plugs and spark plug wires
  • Switching out Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve, if plugged
  • Replacing the air filter
  • Examining the blades and installing a new rotor if the old one has splits, burning or carbon build-up
  • Checking the valve-cover gasket and adjusting the valves
  • Switching out the gas filters
  • Inspecting the distributor cap and putting in a new one if needed
