Moving to Southern Maryland – Car Maintenance 101

Moving to Southern Maryland – Car Maintenance 101

Moving to Southern Maryland is exciting and should be an enjoyable trip unless you experience a breakdown along the way. The best way to prevent a breakdown is to make sure you perform consistent car maintenance. It’s also a good idea to get your car checked out before and/or after a long trip. Routine quality car maintenance can usually provide 150,000 to 250,000 miles of  trouble free life.

There are a few standard rules to follow in order to experience a journey that is fun and stress free. A quality auto shop will suggest a car to be brought in every 3,000 miles for routine maintenance. Most will not only change the oil for you to make sure that your engine is purring to perfection, but some of the best southern maryland mechanics and/or car maintenance shops, like Agape Auto, offer a FREE INSPECTION of all major systems to make sure they are reliable.

Standard Car Maintenance Protocol
• Change regular oil every 3,000 miles.
• Change synthetic oil every 5,000 miles.
• Change your antifreeze every 2 years.
• Change your brake fluid every 2 years.
• Change your transmission fluid every 25,000 miles.
• Do scheduled 15, 30, 60 and 90,000 mile maintenance.
• Check for potential problems before they happen.

Finding A Problem Before It Happens
Wouldn’t you rather find a problem before it happens instead of after? A good auto mechanic will be able to look up your car and tell you about known problems for your specific make and model that can be avoided if you know about them. Sometimes, you can even get your car back to the dealership to correct them while your car is still under warranty. A great autobody shop can tell you about those problems that the dealer might not be thinking about.

Southern Maryland SPECIAL OFFER: Oil Change & Free Inspection
Some of the things checked out during a normal inspection would be an oil and filter change; tire rotation as needed; antifreeze and all fluids checked; check break pads and shoes; check AC/Heating system; inspect all belts and shoes; and there should be a battery and charging system test.
