PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

Courtesy of the Automotive Service Association

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.

  • -Alison M.

    We have used Evan's a few times before and they always have done a great job. This week I found myself with a headlight out and a busy schedule. I stopped in to find out if there was anyone available to change the light. He went out to double check which light, found out they didn't have one in stock, but said he would have one there in 10 minutes. It came in five and I was back on the road. Thank you for such a little thing that can be a big deal!

  • -George S.

    Great place, extremely excellent service at the front desk. They attempted to patch a tire for me, but couldn't because the steel belt had separated. No charge for their efforts. Will definitely return to Evans next time I need service. Thanks for your help.


  • -Hope S.

    We took the van in to get the tire plugged after running over a screw and decided to get the AC looked at too. They have awesome customer service, very thorough in both diagnosing and explaining the issues. There's a nice clean waiting area with comfortable seats and a TV, and you can make coffee or get a water out of the fridge for free. Very nice set up! They also have a clean restroom for customers.
