Service Interval Recommendations

Untitled Document

Auto technicians say the key to keeping vehicles running well-today and down the road-is routine maintenance. Yet many drivers tend to stall when it comes to keeping up with some everyday auto-basics.


A recent survey by the Car Care Council found:
  • 22 percent of cars had low or dirty engine oil.
  • 20 percent had low or contaminated brake fluid.
  • 17 percent had dirty air filters.
  • 16 percent had inadequate cooling protection or low coolant levels.
  • 15 percent had inadequate or contaminated power steering fluid.
  • 12 percent needed new belts 

Most of the checks and services described here can be done at little or no cost. Best of all, they are quick and easy to do. Learn more about your car’s systems in our vehicle systems overview.
