Manufacturer Scheduled Maintenance
Our full service repair shop in Apple Valley believes that proper maintenance and tune-ups contribute to the overall health of any vehicle. Every car, truck and SUV has its own recommended engine maintenance and repair schedule based on the manufacturer. If you're unsure what the specific requirements are for you vehicle, the standard tune-up timeframe is every 2-3 years, or 30,000 miles.
A tune up isn't a cure-all, but if done regularly can prevent unnecessary and extensive repairs down the road. Our repair center in Apple Valley believes that well-maintained cars will not only last longer, but decrease the potential of unexpected engine-related problems. We can take care of your Apple Valley Tune-Up and maintenance needs and discuss any additional car, truck, or SUV maintenance concerns you might have.
Manufacturers typically recommend replacing or reviewing the following at certain intervals:
Distributor cap and rotor
Valves and valve-cover gasket
Replenish any fluids
Air Filter (should be changed every 15,000 miles)
Check the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve
