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.
Great service. Answered all questions that were asked. I would highly recommend these guys!
I went to Family Auto for service on my Kia Soul and immediately felt comfortable with everyone, both on the phone when I had called that morning and when I came in. I'm amazed that they provide you with a loaner car while my car was being serviced. The mechanic explained everything to me and I got my car back the same day,considering I needed quite a few things done. The prices were reasonable and most important I felt they were an honest group of professionals. Highly Recommend!
This is my first time here and I will be back!! Samantha has great customer service and made me feel very welcome. The oil change was quick and very professional. This is s great auto service Center!
Great shop. Quick service. Great work. Everyone is nice and helpful. Accommodated me for last minute appointment. Thanks
These guys have serviced my family's cars since they opened. They are the most honest and fair mechanics I have ever met! I strongly recommend bringing your car to them for any service you may need (if you're into getting great work for a great price)!
Excellent service, honest mechanics, and solid prices. If it's maintenance, make an appointment; they will get you in and out quickly.
The best and the most friendly shop in town.
An honest shop that does great work. Was in and out in a sufficient time.
Very honest and reasonably priced.
Great team! Fair and honest estimates.
Great prices and they're very attentive.
Good family business.
Very competent knows the job.
I've been bringing all of my family's cars to Family Automotive before they moved to Port Jeff sta. The owners Mike & Chris are first class mechanics. The work is always done in a reasonable time and correctly. They always put my mind at ease.
Trustworthy family business.
Very great mechanics and a great shop overall had a very pleasant experience here, was recommended by a friend couple years ago, have tried other mechanics in the past and recently but definitely not as good as family automotive they have done a substantial amount of work on my Jeep.
I have been bringing all of my family's cars to these guys for years and have never, ever had an issue with their work or their prices. And they are really nice guys as well. They are prompt, they are courteous, and I feel lucky to have found them. Bring all your vehicles there - you won't regret it.
