Make sure your vehicle is serviced at the intervals specified in your owner’s manual or warranty booklet and keep clear records of your vehicle’s maintenance. Be sure to include the date, parts installed, vehicle identification number, and mileage recorded on the invoice. Keep your receipts in a safe place. If you have a service log in your owner’s manual or warranty booklet, we highly recommend that you use it.
A major cause of vehicle rust is the salt that is used on winter roads. To minimize rusting, have your vehicle undercoated at Lube IT or be sure to wash your vehicle whenever the temperature is warm enough, or at the very least when the spring thaw starts. Washing should include an undercarriage rinse (available at most car washes) to remove salt from hard-to-reach areas that are likely to rust, such as inside the wheel wells. If you’re washing your vehicle at home, be sure to spray the hose under the car and around the wheel wells.
It takes a complex set of pumps, valves, pistons and clutches to make your car shift gears so automatic transmission fluid is important to make sure everything runs smoothly. Not only is keeping your fluid in check good practice, manufacturers also know you'd rather replace fluid than the transmission. A Lube IT Automatic Transmission Service replaces 100% of the old fluid with clean new fluid to improve performance, prevent repair bills, and extend the life of your transmission. Check your owner's manual for the required service interval for your vehicle.
Even if you lease a vehicle, you are responsible for all maintenance and repairs required to keep the vehicle in good working order as outlined in the owner’s manual.
Synthetic oil helps promote longer life and better performance in most vehicles. It bonds to engine parts providing a layer of protection that surpasses the protection afforded by conventional oil. Synthetic oil will also continue to pump through your engine when conventional oil would start to thicken in cold temperatures or break down from heat.Synthetic oil is recommended particularly for vehicles that are driven in cold climates – it will help you start your engine even when the temperature drops to -40°C. It is also good for high stress situations, such as pulling and towing. Remember, you can't switch back to conventional oil after using synthetic oil.
