Maintenance & Checkups for Your Vehicle
Your vehicle is one of your most important assets and is often a crucial part of your day-to-day life. To keep it operating reliably and safely, as well as to prevent bigger issues, it’s important to stay on top of regular maintenance and checkups, as well as manufacturer-recommended services. Doing so keeps your vehicle running optimally and allows experts to monitor for any underlying issues so they can be addressed before they grow into bigger, more costly repairs. In short, preventive maintenance is crucial for auto owners.
Automotive Diagnostic Specialties (ADS Auto Repair) has been a trusted partner of auto owners in the Chandler, AZ area for a quarter of a century, offering professional and affordable automotive maintenance at our full-service auto shop. We offer a variety of services at checkup services, regular automotive maintenance, and high-mileage automotive maintenance.
Our technicians will cover the following during checkups:
- Monitoring fluid levels and quality
- Checking oil and cabin/engine filters
- Inspecting timing and serpentine belts
- Testing your battery and inspecting connections
- Looking at windshield wiper condition
- Examining tires for air pressure, tread wear, rotation and balancing/alignment needs
- Checking spark plugs
During these routine checks, we’ll tend to any of your vehicle’s needs and make recommendations if bigger work is necessary. Common maintenance services include timing belt/chain service, battery replacement, brake service/repair, oil change, tuneups, and other “check engine” light-related services.
Your vehicle’s owner manual outlines a recommended schedule for your regular maintenance services, from oil changes to mileage interval services.
Scheduled Mileage Services
Most vehicle manufacturers recommend that various services be performed at 30,000-mile intervals. The recommended 30,000-mile service often includes flushes for such fluids as brake fluid, transmission fluid, engine coolant. It also calls for replacement of spark plugs, air filters, and the fuel filter. The 60,000-mile service typically repeats the services performed at the 30,000-mile mark, but can include additional fluid replacements, valve adjustments, and timing belt replacement. The 90,000-mile service includes all of the above, but depending on condition, may add in replacement for drive belts, coolant hoses, motor mounts, and suspension bushings.
