Maintenance Tips

Manufacturers develop a maintenance schedule and regular service intervals for the vehicles they produce. These schedules are specific for each year, make and model. Scheduled maintenance services can include (but are not limited) to:

  • * Oil (and oil filter) change
  • * Chassis lubrication
  • * Fluid, filter, hose and spark plug inspections/replacements
  • * Fuel delivery, emissions and ignition system-related services
  • * Battery service
  • * Tire rotation


Regularly scheduled maintenance helps to keep your vehicle running smoothly. Scheduled maintenance can also extend the life of your car and help prevent unnecessary and expensive repairs. This means your efforts to keep up with your vehicle’s maintenance schedule will literally pay off in the future! It’s important to understand the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule is developed for vehicles that endure “normal” driving conditions. For example, if you participate in frequent stop-and-go or off-road driving, some adjustments may need to be made to your maintenance schedule.

If you have questions or to learn more about your vehicle’s manufacturer-recommended scheduled maintenance, reference your owner’s manual or contact us at Auto Clinic an we will schedule an appointment.
