Why Do You Need Preventive Maintenance?

A lot of you do your automobile maintenance when a piece of equipment breaks down or faces a downtime event. Preventive maintenance, on the other, is a scheduled maintenance based on calendar time or asset runtime. Preventive maintenance is vital not only to prevent possible extensive repairs at a later date but also to avoid the inconvenience of being stranded all of a sudden.

The Car Care Council presumes that a person drives its automobile around 1,000 miles per month, which deciphers to 3,000 miles every three months, 6,000 miles every six months, and 12,000 miles per year.

Therefore, regular automobile preventative maintenance is conducted at intervals that let you discover potential problems before they become serious problems later. The scheduled time could be once a month, every three months, every six months, or even yearly. It all depends upon different parts of automobile and their wear and tear.

Here are some generic service recommendations that are solely based on time and mileage. These are given with the intent to extend the life of your vehicle and help to prevent them from significant breakdown.

On the other hand, the warning signs might not be so clear. So, it’s challenging to identify when you should repair A/C. We have listed down some indicators that could help you in this regard;

  • A strange smell coming from your A/C vents

Why Brake and Battery Service Is Important

Today rechargeable batteries are used in the cars, and over time batteries lose their capacity or ability to hold a charge. A weak battery will not be able to start your vehicle. This often happens in cold weather. When the battery is too weak to turn over the engine, the vehicle will need to be boosted to start. 

To avoid such a situation, the battery should be replaced before its capacity drops to the critical level. Otherwise, it will weaken your engine.
