According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
Very prompt service on several occasions. Did a particularly good job repairing the A/C on my 2005 Ford.
Luckily, I chose Rich's Auto Car & Dyno to repair many problems I was having with my 2001 Corvette Z06. Rich and his entire crew (Richie, Cameron, Henry and Sean) are very competent and knowledgeable about GM LS1-LS7 engines. I saw them working on every car out there, including a Polaris 3 wheeler Slingshot! Rich worked diligently to correct every problem I had. He is fair, honest and a really great guy! I highly recommend Rich's Auto Care & Dyno
Brought my truck in to get my ac fixed ended up just needing charged service was great and fast very Rich is a great guy I would recommend them for everything!
This shop is the best of the best in business, they know what they are doing and they are honest in any job they do, i will always come back here and let them take care of my cars!
My whole family and I bring our cars to Rich's. I would ALWAYS recommend this shop over any other in town. The mechanics are super fast and know what they are doing.
Rich has been servicing my car for years. Affordable, honest, and reliable!
Great service, great prices, had my ford and izuzu fixed up there with a timely manner
Rick auto repair is a good place he is always willing to help people and gives very good advice on vehicles always willing to help others By going out of his way to Anser vehicle questions or help you figure out what's going on with it
Rich has a great team here! Even though his prices are a little steep, you can always count on him to fix your vehicle and keep it on the road! We've been customers for over 10 years. I recommend this shop to anyone who needs help!
Rich is amazing! He never suggests work that isn't needed. He asks me every time I bring my car in what my budget is and lets me know what I need done by priority and always within the budget I give him. No surprise bills from him! No unnecessary work! No made-up charges to pad the bill! No mansplaining from this guy! He's never taken advantage of me being a woman or not having all the knowledge of a mechanic. He's even allowed me to make payments when my budget is too tight to get a repair done that is necessary. I practically live in my car for work and if it's stuck in a shop then I miss out on an entire day's wage. He's always made sure that my car is back on the road within a few hours instead of a few days like other shops do. He's stayed open late to make sure my car is done when I'm facing a time crunch. When I moved across town, I checked out the shops close to me but none provided the kind of service Rich does so I'm happy to make the drive to get repairs done and he's even given me a ride back home so I don't have to pay for a taxi. He's been my mechanic for almost 8 years and I now send all my family members and friends to him.
