The best way to prevent auto repairs is to perform proper maintenance on your vehicle.
Auto Service – Many people own an older vehicle. They’re good commuters, grocery-getters or toy-haulers. They enjoy that fact that their vehicles are paid off, or soon will be. They would gladly like to keep their vehicles for 200,000 miles or more – as long as it’s economical to do so.
There are plenty of people whose vehicles are running after 150,000 or 200,000 miles.From their example we can learn from what they’re doing to keep our own vehicles on the road.
A common denominator is that they never skip an oil change. That may sound a bit unsophisticated, but it’s really not. First off, oil is the life blood of your engine and it needs to be clean and replaced regularly to properly lubricate. Skipping oil changes leads to clogged oil filters and sludge that can damage your engine.
There’s also another reason why the scheduled oil change is so important. It’s simple – an Orozco’s Auto Service professional is going to be looking at your car. All of your fluid levels will be inspected and topped off so they won’t get so low that damage can be done. If there is a significant fluid loss, let’s use brake fluid as an example, our technician can look for the cause of the loss and find the problem before it leads to an accident or costly repair.
Our ASE Certified auto service technician will also visually inspect the vehicle for worn belts and hoses, uneven tire wear, leaking shock absorbers and more. Problems get addressed before they lead to repairs that cost more than the car’s worth. And our advisor will be able to remind you of other services that the factory recommends you get done.
Of course, regular auto service costs money, but it’s far cheaper than a new car payments. Below are some of the many services offered at Orozco’s Auto Service of Fullerton.
