PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

Courtesy of the Automotive Service Association

According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect. 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.

    -Scott Ouimet

  • Compared to other repair shops and dealers that I have brought my car to, Fix N Go has been one of the best. Matt especially was very helpful and went above and beyond to help me out when I was in a pinch. I will exclusively be taking my car back here for any repairs, oil changes, etc. Great service, and the prices are reasonable.
    -Sarah Tomaka

  • These guys are always great. They are conveniently near my work, so I just drop a car off in the morning for an oil change or whatever else. We've had different work done by them on a few different cars, and they've always done very good work and seem to be price competitive. Definitely would recommend trying them out to anybody I know, and have done so.
    -Nate E.

  • Very helpful staff.
    -Chris Ophus

  • Good group of mechanics. They appropriately diagnosed my car issues and were in a reasonable price range. They were nice enough to drive me back to my house after they took my car for major service.
    -Richard Alegre

  • I brought in my Volvo v70, and they fixed my problem in two days. It took them that long because of part shipping time. I checked the work, and it was done correctly and professionally.
    -Grant Rowland

  • Truck broke on the freeway. These guys were great and helped me out when I needed it. Thanks guys.
    -David Squires

  • My car kept dying. They checked everything and kept me up to date. I will always be a customer. The service is excellent, and all the guys did a great job.
    -Mesheko Lewis

  • As a college student with an old car and a tight budget, I definitely recommend Fix N Go Troy as the most reliable and trustworthy service in the area. Their prices are very fair given their high quality service, and their close proximity to I-75, and the Sterling/Troy neighborhoods is super convenient.
    -John Esse

  • Great service, nice people. Thanks Todd!
    -Anita Myles

  • Referred to them by Discount Tire to get an alignment after getting new tires. They squeezed me in the same day, and my Trailblazer feels like its new again!
    -John Troy

  • Fix N Go has fast and friendly service. They just informed us that one of our vehicles needed 2 new tires because of dry rot. They just don't do oil changes, they inspect your vehicle to make sure it is running properly.
    -Russ Francis

  • Fix N Go is very reliable, and I am always confident that I am being charged a fair price for their products and services. The staff at Fix N Go is very friendly and always helpful in explaining the repairs that they are performing on my car.
    -Julie Esse

  • We have taken our cars to these guys for a few years. I have always found them helpful, friendly, and you get in and out. I haven't had them trying to sell me something I didn't need, and I trust their judgement. Would definitely recommend them.
    -Vicky Siegel

  • My family drives 4 older vehicles, and we trust Fix N Go to keep us in tip-top shape. They don't try to over sell, the prices are fair, and we think Todd is great!
    -Lori Esse

  • Very nice guys. Quick to respond, friendly, and honest. I will recommend Fix N Go. This was my first time here, and they treated me like a valued client. They fixed a minor problem at no charge. Thank you. Thank you.
    -Al Todek

  • I like getting service here. I can make an appointment for an oil change and come in and wait. They do it quickly and never pressure me into getting additional repairs. If some are needed, they tell me about it and let me decide.
    -Grace Laverdiere

  • I took my car in to get an alignment done. I was expecting the fix to take at least an hour, but was done within around 30 minutes. They were pretty quick to get the job done, and the people were really nice. I'd definitely go again.
