Routine Car Maintenance That Should Never be Overlooked

Posted on March 12, 2013 by admin No Comments

When it comes to taking care of your car, there are a few routine maintenance procedures that everyone is familiar with. Rotate your tires for even wear, changing the oil every 3,000 miles and checking other fluids under the hood are a few that we often get performed without thinking about it. When looking for inexpensive foreign auto repair in Atlanta, make sure you ask them about performing these checks as well.

You should have a general tune-up and diagnostic check performed every 3,000 miles, or every three oil changes. This is a great way to catch problems before they become major. A routine tune-up checks the spark plugs and plug wires, your air filters both under the hood and in the passenger cabin, and it also checks your fuel system. Transmission fluid and your battery are also tested to make sure they are in good shape.

Your braking system is another part of your vehicle that requires consistent monitoring to ensure it functions properly. Brake pad thickness should be assessed every other oil change for proper wear and condition. Your brake fluid should be changed every 24,000 miles. You do not want to be approaching a stoplight when you discover that you have a problem with your brakes.

Fuel filters are another often overlooked component of your vehicle that should be checked and changed every 25,000 miles. Besides prolonging the life of your car, a new fuel filter can also ensure that you are getting the best fuel efficiency possible.

If you are looking for inexpensive foreign auto repair in Atlanta for your Saab, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, Audi or Mini, don’t get gouged for standard maintenance. Bring it to Munich West, where your foreign automobile will always be treated like a member of our family.
