PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE, Reseda, CA

The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments.
  • Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

Came in to get oil changes for both mine and my wife?s car and had an electrical problem looked at on my wife?s car! They got us in early, got my car out fast and took care of all of the problems on my wife?s car by the next day! All in all they were great at AG auto ! Plus they recommended a great smog check guy !

The shop was very accommodating and got me in for the afternoon wheel alignment as a walk-in customer. Prices were reasonable and no nickle and diming me on service. What they quoted on the verbal estimate was honored and their follow-up after care was very impressive. The owner actually reads the reviews and was very responsive to my minor concern regarding the alignment printout. He immediately replied with apologizing for not having that attached to my receipt and quickly sent me my copy they had on record. He also awarded me a FREE oil change for my concern. I will definitely return for care at this shop.

A.G. Automotive is by far the best auto diagnosis and mechanic in the San Fernando Valley. Their lead Master mechanic Chuck is extremely experienced and is able to diagnose the hardest of Engine and Electrical issues on just about every make and model. I took in my Porsche Panamera S to A.G. for their Oil and Lube service recently and was in and out in a flash. The car is purring now but it was not always the case. A few years back the engine seized and I was fortunate enough to be referred to A.G. for a tow in diagnosis. Chuck was so excellent in figuring out what the issue was that Porsche North America had little argument against a manufacturer defect and ended up covering a $16,000 repair. Prices are very fair and low for the level of expertise that you are getting. Highly recommended, especially when you don't know what is wrong with your car and need an honest mechanic to fix it for you.
