When you need your passenger vehicle repaired, we can help you make the right choices. Whether it’s scheduled maintenance or emergency roadside assistance. Here at Mobile Auto Service, we take our job seriously and we deliver ASE certified mechanics to your door to get your vehicle running. When you’re in need, we are here for you. Below is a list of reasons why you should follow your scheduled maintenance.
Scheduled Maintenance & Why It’s Important
- Warranty. You need to follow the service schedule to keep your vehicle warranty in effect.
- Vehicle Life. Your car or truck will last longer when you protect the engine with regular oil changes and maintain the power train and undercarriage.
- Fuel Economy. You can improve your gas mileage by as much as 9% by keeping your engine properly tuned, inflating your tires to the specific pressure, and using the recommended grade of oil.
- Safety. The service schedule includes important safety checks and maintenance measures.
- Performance. Your vehicle will be more responsive, and deliver a smoother, quieter ride, if you keep it in shape by following the schedule for oil changes, lubrication, filter and parts replacement, and system and fluid level checks.
- Trade-in Value. You will get more for your sale or trade if you produce records showing you followed the maintenance schedule.
- Regular oil changes are the most important investment you can make in your car’s long-term health. Quality motor oil protects your engine and keeps it from wearing out prematurely.
Why It’s Important
- Maintains the manufacturer’s warranty.
- Improves gas mileage by 1-2%.*
- Maximizes vehicle life.
For optimum performance and maximum engine life, we recommend that you:
- Follow the maintenance schedule and instructions in your owner’s manual.
- Check the maximum number of miles or months that your manufacturer recommends between oil changes.
- Use your vehicle’s oil life monitoring system and message center (if your car or truck has this technology) as a guideline only. It will tell you when to change the oil, but you still need to track your mileage.
Should I Use Conventional or Synthetic Oil?
Today’s full synthetic and synthetic-mineral blends are excellent for tough conditions such as stop-and-go driving, frequent trips, and towing. And for engine fills and top-offs, they are considered equivalent or superior to conventional oil. In fact, many newer car and truck models specify synthetic oil. Consult your owner’s manual for oil specifications and a maintenance schedule. Or, speak to your service technician about the best brand and grade for your car or truck and type of driving.
