Every manufacturer develops a maintenance plan that helps their vehicles run at peak performance. Every part has an expected life expectancy, these maintenance plans help prolong the life of these parts and replace them before they fail. Spark plugs are a good example of manufactured scheduled maintenance. Depending on the manufacturer most spark plugs can last as long as 60,000-150,000 miles. Ask us how often your spark plugs need to be replaced and what your car's scheduled maintenance plan is.
Why is maintenance important?
Following a maintenance plan not only keeps your vehicle running at peak performance but can also help avoid pricey repairs. For example, doing a coolant flush every 30,000 miles will help keep fresh, clean fluid going through your water pump, radiator, radiator hoses, and thermostat to name a few. This clean fluid can help prolong the life of these parts and prevent future failures.
It's important to note that not all maintenance work will prevent all future failures. Some parts will eventually need to be replaced even if all maintenance has been followed. Some of those parts include belts, tires, brake pads and rotors, suspension components, and filters.
