According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
I have been using RPM for several years now and the experience is always the same. They are honest, friendly and professional and fair with pricing. I get quick service even when I just walk in with and issue without an appointment. At least someone will access what needs to be done right away and let me know where we go from there. I would recommend RPM very highly. Their newsletters entertaining, too!
I found RPM has been very efficient in root cause analysis and never recommended me for any unnecessary work. I found they are very honest and knowledgeable. I always go to RPM with my repair needs and it's been a great experience. Tommy and Paul both are nice person to talk to. I recommend RPM as a Go-To place.
I am extremely grateful to the owner and his certified mechanics at RPM Automotive. They diagnosed the problem with my vehicle, kept me abreast of what they were going to do as well as why they needed to do it. They made the repair costs
The work that is done at this location is superb. They will not nickel and dime and will be accurate with what is needed. Nothing more and nothing less.
Tommy and his crew are top notch mechanics. I highly recommended them
Tommy took great care of my car (as always). Repair was done all in one morning, and cost was very reasonable. I will definitely go back if needed.
Knowledgeable, fast and fair. Had my fan assembly and valve cover gaskets replaced recently on my 2000 Tacoma; great experience.
RPM is very honest. They only fix what needs to be fixed and most times are done with the repairs faster than the quoted time. Often on the same day!
Can't say enough good things about Tommy and his team. They are honest, hardworking, and reliable. Rates are affordable and they always deliver great service.
Honest, true to their word and reasonable prices. Went over the car together first, got an estimate and it was explained clearly what potentially could increase the work and price. At the end of the day, I was billed a little less than the up front estimate. Highly recommend!
