Preventative Maintenance

preventative maintenanceAny time you purchase something as big as a vehicle you are making an investment. And any time you make an investment, you want to protect it as much as possible. With automobiles, that means preventative maintenance and service. At Harris Garage, we believe that maintenance is one of the most important things in terms of car care. If you aren’t sure what your maintenance schedule should look like, our expert mechanics are happy to consult with you on the schedule that is right for your car.

Oil Change Hayes, VA

This may be the first thing you think of when you think vehicle maintenance, but you have to remember that it is not the only part of proper maintenance. Having your oil changed on a regular basis will keep your engine lubricated and reduce the friction created by its components. A good rule of thumb is to have your oil changed every 3,000 miles, but that schedule varies based on your vehicle and your driving habits.

Tire Services Hayes, VA

Tire pressures, tread wear, and alignment are all vital to the safety and integrity of your vehicle. While you should keep an eye on your tires, it is also a good idea to have them inspected when you come in for service.

Automotive Fluids Hayes, VA

Engine oil isn’t the only fluid your vehicle needs to run properly. Brake fluid, coolant, transmission fluid, and refrigerant all need to maintain their proper levels. These fluids should be checked regularly and flushed or replaced when they are too old to adequately perform their jobs.

Brake Service and Inspection Hayes, VA

Like your tires, brake pads wear out over time. Driving on brakes with worn out pads is a recipe for disaster in terms of damage and safety. Knowing the recommended life of your brake pads and having them inspected for excessive wear when you have your vehicle serviced are crucial to the safety of your vehicle.

Battery Check Hayes, VA

Batteries don’t last forever. If yours is more than three years old it is a good idea to have it checked.

From oil changes to brake service, the team at Harris Garage wants to remind you that you should never ignore preventative maintenance. Our expert mechanics are here to help you keep your car running smoothly for years to come. Call us today to schedule your next service appointment.
