Service Interval Information

How Often Should I Service My Car?

Following a car maintenance service schedule protects your vehicle from sustaining major problems and improves resale value later down the road. Most vehicle manufacturers recommend following a 15-30-60-90 maintenance schedule. This schedule means that major components underneath the hood should be inspected, replaced, and repaired at 15,000, 30,000, 60,000, and at 90,000 miles. This service ensures that parts like rubber gaskets are replaced as they begin to wear out, a much more viable option than risking breakdown and further vehicle damage. Check the owner’s manual with your vehicle to determine the exact service schedule you should follow and keep your vehicle at its best for the duration of its lifetime.

15,000-Mile Service

Recommended Oil ChangeThe oil and oil filter should be changed every 3,000 miles as a general rule of thumb, although some of the synthetic oils used in today’s automobiles can last up to 10,000 miles between changes. Regular oil changes prevent engine oil sludge buildup that can damage the vehicle and cause poor performance.

Dust and dirt clog the air filter inside the car, causing the engine difficulty breathing. This decreases both engine performance and lifetime. A 15,000-mile air filter change ensures these issues are not bothersome to your vehicle.

A clogged fuel filter is bad news for any driver. This can cause the vehicle to operate roughly if it will operate at all. It is recommended that you begin keeping a close eye on this filter and change it at 15,000 miles.
