At Excellent Auto Repair we feel that the most important things you can do to maintain your vehicle are as follows:

  • Change your oil every 3000 miles.
  • Follow the manufacturer's schedule of maintenance.
  • Have wear items inspected often.
  • Have seasonal maintenance inspections performed.

We offer two types of oil change service. The budget oil change includes up to five quarts of regular motor oil, a new oil filter, and the required labor. We also stock synthetic oils when called for by the manufacturer's specification or your preference. This service takes about twenty minutes, we recommend scheduling it with us in advance.

The lube, oil, filter (LOF) maintenance service includes a road test by a certified technician, a preventative maintenance safety inspection, a check over of all drive belts, hoses, tires, suspension, steering, and lubrication of all doors, chassis lube points, hood and trunk hinges, checking all fluids, a new engine oil filter and the required labor. This service takes about forty-five minutes and is best scheduled with us in advance.

For a total maintenance program we recommend that you follow the maintenance schedule outlined in your owner's manual. In case this is no longer available to you, please advise us. We have the OEM maintenance recommendations for all cars in our computer files and we will be happy to provide you with a copy.

In addition to scheduled maintenance it is important that the wear items such as tires, belts and brake pads/shoes be inspected regularly. We always recommend that these items be serviced sooner rather than later to prevent breakdowns or costly additional repairs such as when a brake pad wears to its metal backing plate and damages a brake rotor.
