Your owner’s manual provides all necessary information regarding what parts to replace and when to do it. Read it thoroughly and note any exceptions or severe service notations. Warranties are there to protect the consumer, but you must follow the requirements. If you have questions about warranties, please contact us.
Keep a maintenance schedule. Doing so helps you plan for services that prolong the life of your vehicle, reduce vehicle failures, and gain you peace of mind. If you'd prefer, we can maintain the schedule for you.
If you can see cracks in your belts, it is time to have them replaced. We recommend replacing your belts and hoses at least every three to four years. If your hoses look swollen or soft that could be an indicator that they need to be replaced. However, hoses can deteriorate on the inside and if this happens there is no visual evidence that the hose needs to be changed.
This depends on the type of spark plugs that are in your car. Older cars (15-20 years old) are more likely to have standard plugs and they last 12,000-15,000 miles, newer models up to the year 2000 are platinum tipped and will last 30,000 miles. Some 2000 and newer have iridium tipped plugs and will go 90,000 to 100,000 miles.
