Keeping Up with Factory Auto Maintenance?

Keeping Up with Factory Auto Maintenance?No matter what you drive, it requires routine maintenance. This includes the DeLorean from "Back to the Future," the General Lee from "Dukes of Hazzard" and even KITT from "Knight Rider." Maintenance is key to ensuring a long and healthy roadlife for your mode of transportation. If you neglect your vehicle of necessary services it will result in massive trouble for the engine, transmission and other systems. The following are some of the most common forms of auto maintenance.

Oil Change

Without a doubt the most frequent service your vehicle will require is an oil change. This service removes buildup from the interior of the motor while restoring much needed lubrication between moving parts.

Timing Belt

If your car uses a timing belt it is crucial that you do not delay having it replaced when your car hits that mileage point. Failing to have the timing belt replaced, which is in and of itself a relatively inexpensive service, may result in it snapping, causing horrendous issues inside the engine that will likely require a rebuild to fix.

Fluid Services

Did you know that your car uses a variety of fluids for its numerous systems? These fluids need changing at certain mileage points to ensure that they are free of contaminants and able to do their jobs. This includes coolant, brake fluid, differential fluid and power steering fluid, as well as transmission fluid, which is discussed more below.

30/60/90K Maintenance

Other forms of maintenance in the form of computer diagnostics, safety checks, wheel and tire services and more often fall under 30/60/90K maintenance. These are check ups that go over your vehicle every 30,000 miles to ensure that it is in proper working order throughout.

Transmission Service

The transmission requires routine service as well, similar to an oil change, yet at much higher mileage intervals. Transmission service generally consists of draining the old tranny fluid, replacing or cleaning the transmission filter, installing a new pan gasket and refilling the transmission with fresh fluid.
