Preventative Maintenance

To prevent future problems and keep your vehicle running at its best, periodic maintenance should be performed according to your vehicle’s maintenance schedule. We’re committed to providing the care your vehicle deserves. Preventative maintenance services can include the following: 

Vehicle diagnostics and test procedures

Troubleshooting various issues on vehicles can be the most intricate part of any repair. Technicians in today’s automotive fields are becoming more and more “diagnosticians” and are comparable to doctors and other computer-oriented and engineering-type professionals. 

With our free initial code scan, we’ll be able to provide pricing for a repair to the penny. If the team determines testing is required after pulling the initial codes, then we will propose an estimate for the testing so that you know what is involved and exactly how much it costs. 

If you’re experiencing an issue with your vehicle we kindly invite you to TRUE Automotive so we can have our ASE Certified professionals take an honest look at the car and help come up with a plan.

Belt drive systems and timing belt replacement

The belt drive system in your vehicle can power the air conditioning, power steering, water pump, cooling system, alternator and electrical system, and more. Belt drive systems also have various pulleys and tensioners that should be inspected and replaced at regular intervals along with your belts in order to ensure the entire system is reliable.

If the timing belt breaks on your vehicle, or if the vehicle is out of time, you can experience both minor and major issues. Timing belts should be replaced at regular intervals as preventative maintenance.

Batteries, alternators and starters replacement

The battery in your vehicle is one of the most overlooked items when it comes to preventative maintenance and the car care of your vehicle. Most batteries are recommended to be replaced preventatively at the 5-year mark to prevent costing you a breakdown and the inconvenience of a “no start” likely when you least expect it.

When your battery is starting to fail, you may notice:

  • Clicking when trying to start
  • Error messages or a “battery light” on the dash
  • Dim Headlights or flickering lights
  • Leaking corrosive chemicals
  • Corrosion on the terminals or the cables
  • The battery is over 5 years old
Spark plug replacement and tune-ups

Spark plugs and tune-Ups are important to keeping your vehicle running as intended. Tune-ups can be anything from correcting drivability issues that are causing a check engine light to preventative maintenance services such as spark plugs, or other miscellaneous cleaning or filter services such as your air filters, cabin filters, fuel filter replacements, and more.

Staying on top of these important preventative maintenance items is key to allowing your vehicle to perform as intended by the factory for hundreds of thousands of miles

Other preventative maintenance:
  • Differential and transfer case – fluid/oil replacement recommended every 50,000 miles
  • Fuel system cleanings
  • Exhaust system verification and emission testing
  • Pre-purchase inspections for a vehicle you’re thinking about purchasing
  • Airbag/Safety Restraint System (SRS) scans and inspections
  • ECU/DME repair and replacement
  • General service for electric and hybrid vehicles/equipment
  • Various fluid flushes
