Be kind to your vehicle.
Change it’s oil every 3 months or 5000 km, or as recommended in your owner’s manual
Stay tuned, a new version of this website is on the way. Forgive us if this temporary version is a little rough around the edges!
It’s the May 2-4 weekend! Our unofficial kick-off to the summer. Many of us will be planning our summer vacations and road trips. But there’s nothing like car trouble to bring the fun to a grinding halt. So, don’t forget to plan ahead and make an appointment to have your vehicle inspected and serviced at Two Guys Auto Service well before you head out on the road. We can help reduce the probability of you getting sidelined on your travels.”
With the current economic climate, many people know it makes sense to commit to making their cars last a long time.
First thing: youíve got to start with what youíve got. Itíd be ideal if people started with a brand new car, never missed a scheduled service item, paid attention to the severe service maintenance schedule and had regular inspections. But if youíve had the vehicle for a while, or bought it used, its maintenance history is what it is Ė and thatís where you start.
Go through the maintenance schedule and see whatís been done and when. Have Two Guys Auto Service do an inspection and come up with a list of stuff that needs to be done. Review the list and prioritize the work, talk about budget and make a plan to get caught up.
Making a plan is so important. Suppose you go in for an oil change and learn you need your cooling system serviced, a transmission service and are coming up on a timing belt replacement in the next 5,000 miles. You might be pretty overwhelmed.
To make it even more stressful, these are all very important systems that are expensive to repair if thereís a failure. In consultation with Grant or Amanda at Two Guys Auto Service, you might decide to take care of the transmission on this visit, set an appointment for the cooling system service next month and get an estimate for the timing belt replacement so youíll be prepared for it in a few months.
Having a plan for taking care of these important services will set your mind at ease.
At any time, it is important that you have a clear view of the road ahead and behind you.† We are really getting into that wet weather and sloppy road season now, and if you havenít replaced your wiper blades within the last six months, make it a priority to have them replaced today.
Wipers play a major role in safe driving, as the chance of an accident increases if you canít see.† Your wiper system keeps excessive water, snow and dirt from building up on the windshield and maintains clear visibility.
Many factors can accelerate the replacement interval of wipers, including operating conditions (winter conditions are tough on wiper blades), frequency of use, material and type of wipers and sunny weather.
And donít forget to keep your windshield washer fluid reservoir topped up and a spare jug in the trunk!
If you detect any problem with your car’s wipers, have them checked out at once. Keep your vehicle’s wiper system properly cared for to help ensure a safer ride and keep the road ahead well lit.
Preventive Maintenance is a schedule of planned maintenance actions aimed at the prevention of breakdowns and failures. The primary goal of preventive maintenance is to help prolong the life of the vehicle and reduce vehicle failures therefore providing a worry free driving experience.
Automotive technicians say the key to keeping vehicles running well today and down the road, is routine preventive maintenance. Many drivers tend to stall when it comes to keeping up with some everyday automotive basics.
