PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

Courtesy of the Automotive Service Association

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.

    I live in Noblesville and have been taking my car to Chris for now over 6 years. He was at a former business in Fishers and has met and exceeded my expectations for service 100% of the time. I would echo that he is accessible and a wonderful communicator in everything he does. He has never upsold or forced us to buy a service or part that wasn't absolutely necessary at the time of service. Whether its a small task like an oil change or a flat tire or even a checkup I go out of my way to see Chris as I know it will be done right and I know he will be honest in everything he does.

    I have nothing but great things to say about this business and my experience. The Owner (Chris P) is extremely honest, is cheaper than most dealerships or other Auto repair businesses, and is flexible in working you in his schedule based on your availability. We have been doing business solely with Chris for many years and send our friends, my family, and any one that asks where I go to get work done to him. I have high mileage cars (90K and 180K) and Chris always recommends only what I need and has actually talked me out of doing a repair/preventative in the past. I drive 30 minutes to his shop because I trust him and he continues to prove that with every interaction.

    When working out of town we had a company vehicle break down. Luckily, we found Indy Truck and Auto Repair nearby with incredible reviews that are nothing but the truth. We had kind, professional service at a great price with great communication. Highly recommend!!

    I highly recommend Indy Truck & Auto Repair for friendly, honest, and quick service. Chris runs house upfront and is as straightforward and down to earth as they come. Chris was pleasure to work with and remembered my call for information from a week prior. He almost made having car trouble fun. They were able to make my repair the same day I came in without an appointment, but were also transparent that it depended on when the part delivery came. I'll definitely send any family or friends here if they need car help in the future. Also note: this is a great place to take Hyundai's based on their professional experience
