Regular maintenance is critical to ensure the safety, reliability, drivability, comfort and longevity of your vehicle. The best way to minimize more serious breakdowns and the higher costs associated with automotive repair is by doing routine maintenance.Preventive vehicle maintenance is simply what the manufacturer of your vehicle suggests getting done to keep your vehicle going. Whether you have a car or truck we provide the maintenance services to keep it running well.
We see many trucks that get lots of off road use to get to hunting locations, mine sites of just enjoying the off road experience, this can take a heavy toll on the suspension systems. We can provide you a thorough inspection of your suspension system to ensure you and your passengers safety and also check for any abnormal tire wear or damage that can occur from failing suspension systems.
il OIL CHANGES
Over time, as oil becomes saturated with contaminants, excess particles are left behind in the engine, where they can form deposits and cause significant wear to the engine. Containmated oil loses its lubrication, which will eventually lead to an overworking engine, excess heat, and engine failure. Excessive heat can also lead to thermal breakdown in your engine oil, causing a change in the oil’s viscosity, and resulting in decreased oil flow. Similarly, dirty oil flows more slowly, causing the engine to work harder, leading to increased engine wear. Our service staff will inspect the oil filter during each oil change, and replace the oil filter in order to keep your oil clean from contaminants. Routine lube and oil changes will keep your engine running stronger and running longer. call us today regarding your next lube, oil, and filter change.
The coolant system is one of the most overlooked preventive maintenance items in a diesel engine.Engine coolant maintenance is just as important as an oil change. In fact, the coolant condition in a diesel engine may even be more important than in a gasoline engine.One of the biggest reasons for neglect is probably that owners simply don’t understand how important it is to periodically check the coolant’s condition. The condition of the coolant means everything to engine longevity. Today’s antifreeze-coolant not only protects from freezing in the winter months, but also helps protect diesel engines from common cavitations issues caused by extreme pressures encountered in the combustion cycle. Coolant also increases the boiling point. In order to combat cavitations problems, some vehicle manufacturers install coolant system filters, which not only filter the coolant, but also have nitrite in the filter media. By servicing the coolant filter at certain intervals, the nitrite in the system should always be constant. Regular proper maintenance of your cooling system may avoid costly repair work on your engine.
