  • Spring cleaning isn’t just for the home – we also need to remember to pay attention to our vehicles! With April being National Car Care Month, it’s the perfect time to give your car some extra attention and get caught up on routine vehicle maintenance.

    Car Care Council states that 84 percent of vehicles need service or parts, up 5 percent from the previous year. With the Spring and Summer travel seasons close by, we need to make sure our cars are safe and ready to hit the road.

    A typical 30,000 mi. maintenance may include:

    • Air filter
    • Fuel filter
    • Cabin air filter
    • A visual inspection of all vehicle components
    • Changing vehicle fluids such as transmission, coolant, power steering and oil.

    It’s always a good idea to check your tires too! RMA suggests you play your PART:

    • Pressure – Check the pressure of your tires once a month, and before every long trip, to ensure that when you do need to stop, your tires can do everything they’re supposed to do to help you.
    • Alignment – Make sure you have the alignment and balance of your tires checked regularly so that if you do skid, your vehicle is properly equipped to help you stop safely. Have your alignment checked at least 1-2 times per year, or at the first sign of the vehicle not tracking straight when driving on a straight stretch of road
    • Rotate – Rotating your tires can sometimes help correct irregular tire wear. We recommend rotating your tires every 5,000-7,000 miles, or roughly every other oil change.
    • Tread – Hydroplaning can occur even at low speeds if the tread is not deep enough to channel the water from under your tires.  If any part of the tread is at or below 2/32″ depth, the Department of Transportation (DOT) considers the tire as having reached the end of it’s useful life and should be replaced.

    Our certified technicians at Sullivan Tire and Auto Service will help you maintain your vehicle. We can perform the exact same services as your car dealer for less money and in less time.
