Preventative Maintenance and Fuel Efficiency
We all know that fixing and taking care of the little things before they become big things helps save money as car owners. What you may not know is that preventative maintenance can also increase the fuel efficiency of your vehicle, saving you even more money!
Preventative maintenance includes some essential services such as regular oil changes and oil filter swaps, fuel filter replacement, and chassis lubrication. All of these tasks will help your engine run smoother because the moving parts are generating less friction. Less friction means less wear and tear and also keeps the engine from having to work as hard.
As an oil and fuel filter gets dirty, they are less able to do their jobs and begin circulating more dirt and debris in their respective systems. These particles can wreak havoc on your system, making the vehicle far less efficient. By keeping the filters changed often, regular preventative maintenance can dramatically help to improve the fuel efficiency of your vehicle.
What do Tires Have to do with Preventative Maintenance?
Tires play a major role with any preventative maintenance program that does things right. Especially in locations like Austin, extreme temperatures are going to put more wear and tear on the major components of your vehicle, including the tires.
Our ASE-certified technicians inspect your vehicle’s tires with an expert eye and evaluate them with the latest technology. We’ll make sure the tires are filled to the correct pressure, measure the tread depths, and note any disproportionate or uneven tread wear that may be shortening the life of your tires.
Our techs can also measure and correct your vehicle’s alignment to be perfectly in line with the manufacturer’s specs. If you’re noticing any pulling or vibration in the steering wheel and/or uneven tread wear, we recommend stopping in to get your wheel alignment checked.
