Auto Maintenance Services in Alachua, FL
Do you want your car to be safe and dependable? This area of automotive care cannot be skimped on and in our opinion is the single most important thing you can do in maintaining dependability and safety as a car owner. The maintenance on modern day cars, and even older cars, is usually prescribed by the manufacturer of the car. This information is known as a maintenance schedule and can be found in your owner’s manual or in today’s day: Google it.
The most common maintenance is an oil change at regular intervals. At Transmission Doctor and Auto Care we recommend an oil change be done at every five thousand miles, however with today’s high-tech synthetic oils some oil changes can go 7,500 to 10,000 mile intervals.
At our shop, during our oil changes, we perform a 40 point courtesy check that includes looking at items like lights, windshield wipers, condition of breaks, transmission, differential, tires, steering components, etc. It’s important that these items be checked regularly and if problems are found, they be corrected.
