PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE SERVICES

Auto maintenance describes the act of inspecting or testing the condition of car subsystems and servicing or replacing parts and fluids. Regular maintenance is critical to ensure the safety, reliability, drivability, comfort, and longevity of a car. During preventive maintenance, a number of parts are replaced to avoid major damage or for safety reasons.

Felix's Auto Service, Inc. recommends scheduled intervals depending on the vehicle's year, make, model, driving conditions, and driver behavior, such as:

  • Number of trips and distance traveled per trip per day

  • Extreme hot or cold climate conditions

  • Mountainous, dusty, or de-iced roads

  • Heavy stop-and-go vs. long distance cruising

  • Towing a trailer or other heavy loads

Common car maintenance tasks include:

  • Check/Replace Engine Oil and Replace Oil Filters

  • Check or Refill Windshield Washer Fluid

  • Replace Windshield Wipers

  • Inspect Tires for Pressure and Wear 

  • Tire Balancing and Rotation

  • Wheel Alignment

  • Check, Clean, or Replace Battery Terminals and Top Up Battery Fluid

  • Check or Flush Brake Fluid

  • Check or Flush Transmission Fluid

  • Check or Flush Power Steering Fluid

  • Check or Flush Engine Coolant

  • Inspect or Replace Spark Plugs

  • Inspect or Replace Air Filter

  • Inspect or Replace Timing Belt and Other Belts

  • Tighten Chassis Nuts and Bolts

  • Test Electronics, e.g., Anti-Lock Braking System

  • Read Fault Codes from the Engine Control Unit

TUNE UP

Some tasks that have equivalent service intervals are combined into one single service known as a tune-up. In modern cars, where electronics control most of the car's functions, the traditional tune-up doesn't apply anymore. Maintenance jobs like a tune-up used to mean getting the engine's performance back on track. Today embedded software takes care of it by constantly checking thousands of sensor signals, compensating for worn-out spark plugs, clogged filters, etc.
