PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments.
  • Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

    It's no big deal to me make a write about the service you all provide concerning the quality and price, which like I said is not cheap, but is very reasonable - not to mention the customer service. I would rather spend my money at Evans instead of Honda or Nissan.

    Had service performed same day. Very professional and up front about cost. PS: The front counter has the best writing pens in town. Would recommend.

    I was in a bind and REALLY needed to find a shop to swap out my old 350Z motor for a JDM motor that was like new. The ONLY shops that would do it, were HORRIBLE with communication. From START TO FINISH EVANS WAS AWESOME WITH COMMUNICATION, VERY EFFICIENT AND THE WORK LOOKS LIKE THE CAR JUST PULLED OFF A NISSAN SHOWROOM FLOOR. I'll be turning to them FIRST for all of my car needs!

    I have been a "regular" for years, but for different reasons. Very professional staff, and extremely capable mechanics! Always a pleasure dealing with the Evan's team! One of my favorite places hands down.

    Excellent. Service was fast, done very well, at a fair price. Nissan wanted $4100 and a week to do the work. Evans had it done in 24 hours and I saved $3600. Car runs even better than before. I should mention that diesel fuel was put into the gas tank by mistake causing the need for service. I recommend them highly.
