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.

    Terrific garage, really helped us out of a bind. We had car troubles on the 101, limped to this garage. They had us back on the road in a jiffy! Reasonable prices and honest people. A+

    Kings auto care was absolutely great. I highly recommend this place for repairs. Jim was great, very professional and kept me up to date with what was going on with my car. When I need repairs again I'll be going here and asking for Jim. Thank you!

    Kings Auto Care was by far the BEST experience I have had by a mechanic. Jim is the owner and sole worker at his shop. Jim is very honest and more affordable than any other mechanic. He is very thorough and spends time explaining exactly what is being done. Additionally, he will not try to upsell any products or services that are not required. I live down in SLO and will drive all the way to Paso to Kings Auto Care every time!!

    This is hands down the best automotive shop in the county. Jim is talented, friendly, professional and extremely efficient. His service is prompt and he communicates with you throughout the entire process of repair. He has worked on my BMW, Mercedes and Ranger from small jobs like replacing light bulbs to big things like water pumps, fuel pumps and clutches. I highly recommend Kings Auto for anything you might need for your vehicle. There has yet to be something that Jim couldn't fix. Bonus, the price is always right.
