PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE, Phoenix, AZ

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.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Art is fantastic. He is fair and does awesome work.

I have been going to Art for over 10 years, my brother and sister have also used him. We have a Toyota Prius, and and Infinity. Art has done great work for us, he always makes room if we have an urgent need. He has found some things and told us "no charge." Some things he finds, but says it is good for now, will need to be fixed in another 10k miles. He is honest and a pleasure to work with.

We have taken both our vehicles and our motor home to Art's and the care and attention to detail that he and his crew have shown for our vehicles is exemplary. You never have to question what was done, as Art will show you the photos he took to explain the problem and show the solution. I recently brought my car into Art's for routine maintenance. While there, I mentioned to Art that when I turned my right turn signal on the dome light lit. He called within two hours to say that he could permanently fix the problem; the part would be close to $300.00, or I could turn the left blinker assembly knob, 1/4 turn towards me and everything would work perfectly. He was right and he saved me $300. We absolutely would not take our vehicles anywhere else. Art is efficient, work is done in a very timely manner, he is honest and treats customers as if they were family, giving the very best and at a fair price.

Excellent auto mechanics. Owner is caring, courteous, and honest. Pricey but honestly and stands behind their work. Highly recommend.

My other half took our car in for some work, and these guys saved us so much time, money and hassle. Gave us a straight price- no range, no guessing. No other shop would do that- we called 5. When something else popped up, he gave him every option. Tried to charge instead of automatically replace our battery to save us money. Friendly and knowledgeable. We'll never go anywhere else.

Good fast work done on my car. Affordable prices. Art will show you what's been done to your car, what you need fixed now, and what can wait until later. Very honest guy

reviewicon

The best mechanics--honest, knowlegable and nice. So reasonable and timely. Trust them implicitly. Art explains everything thoroughly and shows you the "why" something needs fixing. Cared for my cars for years. A recommendation from a friend whose family used them for decades. I have recommended them to lots of friends who have had the same excellent experience.
