Protect Your Toyota with Preventive Maintenance
In Des Moines at Stephens Automotive, we have been performing Preventive Maintenance for years. The goal of Preventive Maintenance (PM) is to reduce the likelihood of failure occurring by performing regular maintenance on your vehicle and keep your vehicle working efficiently.
The maintenance needs and performance rely on several different factors. Some include driving conditions such as extreme weather and salty or dusty environments. The type of driving like stop-and-go traffic in cities or highway driving also has an impact. Another factor is whether you’re regularly hauling heavy cargo or a trailer. There are several other things that can determine how frequently you need to service your vehicle. Pay attention to your manufacturer’s guidelines, and ask for help if you want an expert’s opinion.We can inspect your Toyota vehicle to help prevent future damages and break downs.
Your Toyota Might be Asking for an Oil or Filter Change
The oil in your engine has a vital role. It keeps your engine components lubricated and friction low between parts. This helps to keep the engine cool. Oil also takes harmful debris away from the engine and catches it in the oil filter.
You should change your oil every 3,000-5,000 miles or about every 3 months. Oil filters should be changed every or every other time you get your oil changed. You need to change your oil regularly to avoid wearing out different parts of the engine. Oil helps the engine work efficiently and properly, so without useful oil, your engine will suffer. Avoid expensive service needs in the future by routinely changing your oil and oil filter. Stephens Automotive is eager to change your oil and filters as needed to keep your Toyota running smoothly.
Take Care of Your Toyota’s Wheels and Tires
Your Toyota’s tires are what make driving, steering, and braking possible. Since they connect your vehicle to the road, it’s vital to make sure that they are in good shape. Some regular maintenance that your tires need includes tire rotations, balancing, and alignment. These things can even out the wear on your tires and help them last longer. The tread on your tires can wear out sooner if your tires aren’t inflated or rotated according to manufacturer recommendations.We want to keep you safe on the road.Get your tires serviced at Stephens Automotive in Des Moines, IA to keep your Toyota in good shape.
Does Your Toyota’s Engine Need Work?
