According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
Will be back. Honest about time it would take. They did a good job and price was almost half of what I have paid other places for the same service.
Great service as always!
Great job! Not pushy about pricing and didn't force me to do something that I didn't understand. And told me not to do something for my car that could wait instead of trying to make the deal.
I had a flat tire late in the day. They let me come right in, diagnosed the problem and helped me get it resolved. Very professional and a fair price.
Great service friendly customer service. I got 4 tires had an issue with a leak but they fixed no extra charge. I have been going there for years with all my cars.
Dean was awesome! Very honest and caring about his customer?s safety and satisfaction! Highly recommend this place!
Went for a flat tire, they told me exactly how much it would be to repair and if they needed to do anything else they would let me know 1st. About 10 minutes late car was fixed and I was on my way. SUPER SUPER nice guys working there.
Went in today (no appointment) with a major oil leak. Was out of there in a few hours and saved $800 vs the quote I recieved from Tires Plus. I have a new shop!
Local construction debris left me with two flat tires. The guys at C&E worked with me to get the car repaired and back on the road without breaking my wallet. Recently had another flat. I went to C&E again and again got excellent service. Would recommend to anyone.
My favorite bunch of guys. They are the only ones aside from myself who I trust to work on my vehicles. (3 of them) super smart , and honest. These guys are always looking out for their customers. I have always had the greatest experiences here. To you all, I thank you. And appreciate all the time and effort you put forth to make sure all of our vehicles run as smooth as butter.
