An oil change isn't the only maintenance item your vehicle needs.
Most people know that changing the oil and oil filter in their vehicle every few months is necessary to help protect the car’s engine. But, an oil change isn’t the only maintenance item your vehicle needs.
All vehicles have many parts and systems that keep them running. Without regular maintenance, these parts and systems will wear, and eventually fail. Proper Preventive maintenance is the key to extending the life of your vehicle and minimizing future repairs. Here at Woody’s, we’ve seen many vehicles needing repairs or expensive replacement parts that could have been easily prevented if the vehicle had been on an appropriate maintenance schedule.
Without regular maintenance, the life of your vehicle is shortened and can become prone to costly problems and issues that could have been easily prevented. In addition, most new vehicle warranties will require that the vehicle is serviced regularly, or else the warranty will be rendered void.
What is Factory Scheduled Maintenance?
Every car has a maintenance schedule that is recommended by the car’s manufacturer. Every vehicle has different maintenance services at different mileage intervals that are recommended by the manufacturer. Examples of common mileage intervals include 30,000 or 60,000 or 90,000 km.
Maintenance services include but are not limited to:
- Lube, Oil & Filter change
- Cooling System Flush
- Brake System Check and flushing of Brake Fluid
