Maintenance Schedules

The Benefits of Staying on Schedule

Maximize Your Car’s Lifespan

Many of today’s cars, trucks, and SUVs can make it well past 100,000 miles, but only with proper maintenance. Your mechanic will provide maintenance services based on your mileage and usage of your vehicle. The team at KD Automotive in Richmond, WA, is here to help with all your scheduled maintenance services.

From Oil Changes to Brake Inspections

Your vehicle has a specific maintenance schedule set forth by your manufacturer. You must read the owner’s manual to determine the schedule, but most newer vehicles with less than 36,000 miles need less maintenance. It is important to plan for oil changes and tire rotations, but as your car ages more maintenance is necessary. A normal car maintenance schedule includes regular oil and air filter changes, tire rotation, and inspection. Before your factory warranty expires, make sure to get a full mechanical inspection at 36,000 miles. After 50,000 miles, you will likely need to replace your brake pads and fuel filter. You can change your transmission fluid and check your exhaust and suspension. Once your car hits 60,000 miles, you should replace the spark plugs, change the tires, and inspect the spark plugs as the manufacturer advises. At 100,000 miles, change the spark plugs and inspect the O2 sensors, coolant, and brake fluid. Now is a good time to check your air conditioning, compressor, and belt tensioner. You may also want to consider replacing your shocks and struts. Keep in mind that your driving affects the maintenance your vehicle needs regularly. If your vehicle is a high mileage car or tends to tow heavy loads, you’ll need to service your vehicle more often.
