Routine Car Maintenance at Campus Auto Repair
Cars and trucks, no matter how well-built they may be, require a certain amount of maintenance in order to continue to perform. The idea is simple: certain parts of your vehicle cannot to be built to last longer than a couple of years (or in the case of engine oil, a couple of months). These parts need to be replaced before they die. If they aren't replaced, then they will put undue stress on other, more expensive parts.
In order to keep your vehicle running smoothly, efficiently, and safely, routine car maintenance is a must. This includes:
Oil Change Services
An oil change entails flushing all of the engine oil in the vehicle and replacing the oil filter.
Many vehicles need an oil change every 3,000 miles. Campus Auto Repair offers two different oil change services:
INCLUDES FIVE QUARTS OF OIL. SOME VEHICLES MAY TAKE ADDITIONAL OIL AND OIL FILTER MAY BE MORE EXPENSIVE.
Tire rotation means taking the tires off and moving them from one position on the vehicle to another. Tire rotation is necessary because of unequal weight distribution on most vehicles.
If you didn't rotate your tires then—on most front-wheel drive vehicles—your front tires would last only half as long as your rear tires. Tire rotation is important on rear-wheel drive vehicles too, though it may need to occur less frequently.
Car or Truck Tune-Ups
A tune-up is one of the best ways of ensuring against large repairs in the future. This routine maintenance is essential for keeping your vehicle in good working order and preventing undue wear and tear.
Each vehicle has its own maintenance schedule and is built to withstand a certain amount of miles before requiring a tune-up. It also depends on the type of driving you do most often. Campus Auto Repair mechanics can advise you about how often you should have your car tuned-up. Link to the "ask a mechanic" page!
Campus Auto Repair offers different tune-up options.
Because of the nature of Colorado's harsh seasons, car maintenance in Colorado should include a seasonal check-up. These should occur twice per year: once in the fall and once in the spring. The idea is that winter and summer are the harshest seasons for your vehicle and these check-ups allow Campus Auto Repair to prepare the vehicle for the coming season and see if there was undue wear from the previous one.
Campus Auto Repair's seasonal check-ups start at $46.00. A seasonal check-up can include:
