Timely Vehicle Maintenance in Springfield, OH

If you’d like to stay ahead of car problems, all you need is an excellent vehicle maintenance schedule on your side. By keeping all your car’s major systems well-maintained, your efforts help prevent many major issues, including catastrophic part failures. To get on the proper schedule, all you have to do is reach out to our team at Zima Automotive. We will create a preventative maintenance plan for your car, so you just have to zip into the shop to get the work done.

Common Types of Vehicle Maintenance Services

Timely vehicle maintenance revitalizes the fluids, seals, and other consumable parts that help keep your car running and driving at its best. At the top of the list are routine oil changes, which ensure the fluid can adequately clean, cool, and lubricate the moving parts in your engine.

Other routine maintenance services include:

  • Cabin and engine air filter replacement
  • Engine tune-ups
  • Coolant flushes
  • Brake pad and rotor replacement

Your vehicle year, make, and model greatly influence which services need to be done and when. For example, Volkswagens with the 1.8T engine need timing belt service every 75,000 miles, while VR6 powered VWs need their timing chain replaced every 100,000 miles.

Recommended Car Maintenance Intervals

Our auto techs follow most manufacturer’s service recommendations in completing all vehicle maintenance. Each carmaker indicates which services to perform and at which intervals.

Manufacturers recommend that most modern European vehicles need to come into the shop every 10,000 miles for service. However, at Zima Automotive we never recommend waiting that long for service. We recommend that every vehicle be serviced every 5,000 miles. Anything beyond that your engine oil simply isn’t protecting and lubricating your engine as well as it should be.  Each time you bring your vehicle in to be serviced, it will get a digital vehicle inspection, oil change, tire rotation, and fluid top off at the first visit.

For the next interval, they’ll come back for another inspection, oil change, tire rotation, and fluid top-off plus:

  • Engine and cabin air filter replacement
  • Fuel filter
  • Wiper blades

The services will usually alternate after that, with differential service occurring at 60,000 miles and spark plugs at 100,000 miles.

Our Commitment to Using Quality Parts and Fluids

In addition to following the carmaker’s vehicle maintenance recommendations, we always use the highest quality parts and fluids. With that move, your mechanic helps decrease the risk of part failure and preserves the condition of your car’s major systems. You then never have to worry about the integrity of the parts used in your build or any problems linking back to improper fluids. You can just head out on all your travels with confidence that your car is ready for whatever comes your way.
