When to Bring Your Car in for Service

Here’s a general breakdown of when you should have preventative maintenance performed on your car. (Consult your owner’s manual for the specific information about your vehicle.)

Every Three Months

  • Change the oil and filter: Depending on your vehicle, how you drive, and the type of oil you use, oil changes may be necessary at any point from 3,000 to 20,000 miles.
  • Top off all fluids: Check and fill your brake and power steering fluid, antifreeze / coolant, windshield washer fluid and transmission fluid.

Every Six Months

  • Brakes: Have them inspected for performance and to gauge their existing service life. Typically, brake pads with 20% life left should be replaced.
  • Battery: Check and clean the connections. Also, check the case for cracks or leaks.
  • Spark plugs and wires: Have them inspected to make sure they’re in good shape.
  • Windshield wipers: Check the blades for cracks or tears and to be sure they’re making constant contact with the windshield.

Every Twelve Months

  • Radiator: You may not need a flush and fill every year, but consider having the coolant and cooling system checked just to make sure everything is working properly.
  • Fuel Filter: Have it checked and replaced if necessary.
  • Belts and Hoses: Have them inspected for any signs of wear. If the belts are cracked or frayed, and if the hoses are hard, brittle or bulging have them replaced.
