Service Schedule for Automobile Maintenance

Introduction

Automobile maintenance is important to keep your vehicle running in good condition. The regular service schedule will keep your vehicle in good running condition and prevent costly repairs down the road.

Engine oil & filter – replace

The engine oil and filter should be replaced every 10,000 to 15,000 kilometer. This is one of the most important maintenance tasks for any car or truck owner. Engine oil helps lubricate and cool the engine by providing friction surfaces with which to make contact with pistons, valves and camshafts in order to carry out their function properly. Oil also keeps dirt from being drawn into your vehicle’s engine by keeping it clean so that dirt won’t collect on moving parts like pistons or valves which could cause wear or even damage if left unchecked over long periods of time without proper maintenance performed regularly.”

Fluid levels – top them off all

When you’re ready to top off the fluids, be sure to follow the owner’s manual’s recommendations for the type of fluid and its recommended intervals. For example: if your manual recommends changing your coolant once every 30,000 miles, then that’s what you should do. However, if there are no specific instructions for how frequently to change brake or transmission fluids (or any other type of fluid), then it’s best not to worry about them too much—just make sure they’re replaced on schedule and don’t let their levels drop too low!

Lube hinges, locks, latches, and hood cable Front/Rear brakes – visual inspection

  • Check that the hood, doors, and trunk close properly.

  • Check that the brakes are working.

  • Check fluid levels and for leaks in any fluid lines or hoses; add new fluid if necessary.

  • Inspect all lights for proper operation, including headlights and taillights (and turn signals).

  • Inspect tires for signs of wear or damage; replace as needed.

Lights – check operation of all lights Clutch – adjust if applicable Battery posts – inspect and clean as necessary

  • Check all lights. If a vehicle has been in storage for a while, it may be necessary to have the headlights, tail lights and turn signals inspected by an auto technician before driving the car again. The technician will also check them while they are running to ensure they are working properly and that there are no signs of wear or damage.

  • Adjust clutch if applicable. If you notice that your car doesn’t move when you press down on the gas pedal, it could mean that your transmission needs adjustment or replacement; this can be done by taking it into a professional shop where they will adjust your transmission for free!

  • Inspect battery posts for corrosion or damage caused by improper installation of jumper cables during an emergency situation (i.e., when someone else’s car breaks down).

Tires – rotate

Tires should be rotated every 7,500 miles. If a tire is worn out and you have to replace it, rotate the new tire front to back and side to side before putting on. The same goes for your spare, which should also be rotated after being installed by your mechanic or dealer.

If you don’t have time for a professional service schedule that includes rotating tires and changing oil regularly (which we recommend), then consider getting an automated car maintenance plan from one of our trusted partners like AAA or Hertz — they’ll take care of everything for you!

Belt/hoses – inspect (replace if damaged) Wheels – inspect and clean to remove corrosion

  • Check the belts and hoses for damage.

  • Replace any damaged parts as necessary.

  • Inspect wheels for cracks and corrosion, then clean them to remove rust, dirt and other debris from the surface.[2]

Washer fluid – check and fill Hoses – check for leaks or damage Fuel system – clean (if recommended)

  • Check and fill Hoses – check for leaks or damage.

  • Clean Fuel System – if recommended.

  • Washer fluid – check and fill Hoses – check for leaks or damage.

Regular service schedule will keep your vehicle in good running condition

Regular maintenance will keep your vehicle in good running condition. Maintenance is a key part of keeping your car on the road and safe. For example, if you don’t do regular maintenance on your car, it could stop working properly or even break down at some point.

Regularly scheduled preventive service visits can prevent problems before they occur. This means that if something goes wrong with your vehicle later on (even after all the work has been done), there won’t be any issues because they were caught early on during regular inspections and preventative maintenance services!

It’s important to know when it’s time for your mechanic to come out so that he or she knows which parts need fixing next time around—and what should wait until later down the line (such as new tires). It also helps them see how much damage has been done since last time around; therefore making sure everything looks good again before heading back home again after each visit.”
