Scheduled Maintenance

Scheduled Maintenance

We never like to see a car come in on a tow truck, we want to catch any hidden issues before they become a problem.  Unlike many shops, we aim to maintain and not repair your vehicle.  Scheduled maintenance helps to keep your car on the road longer and avoid costly repairs down the line.

The Importance of scheduled maintenance.

We offer routine scheduled maintenance for most vehicle manufacturers.  We will always refer to the manufacturer’s recommendations based on age and miles, and will perform our courtesy health inspection to determine what services your vehicle may need.

Typically, routine maintenance will include:

Oil Change

Your engine oil breaks down as miles are driven.  Typically, you will need an oil change between 3,000 to 7,000 miles.  You can refer to your owner’s manual or if your vehicle is equipped with an oil life indicator this will give you good notice when the next oil change is needed. 

Our signature Crown City Tire Oil Change includes more than the competition.  At a great value we only use European oil in all of our services.  Yes! That’s correct, only European oil for all of our vehicles.

We also perform a courtesy health inspection to ensure that your vehicle is safe for the road.  Lastly, we will rotate your tires and top off any necessary fluids at no additional charge.

Spark Plugs

Your vehicle’s spark plugs are designed with specific tolerance to keep your engine running efficiently and reliably.  Over time these tolerances will change which requires replacement of the spark plugs.  Your vehicle manufacturer has specific miles when these parts need to be replaced or you can call us to find this information for you. 

Fluid Exchanges

Your vehicle has many types of fluids that keeps it working efficiently.  Like any fluid, normal use will break down the effectiveness and ability of the fluid to operate as designed.  If your fluid is low, dirty, or contaminated, our professional technicians can perform an exchange with the proper OEM specific fluids. 

Typical fluids that need routine service include:

  •       Brake Fluid
  •       Coolant Fluid
  •       Transmission Fluid
  •       Differential and  Transfer Case Fluid
  •       Power Steering Fluid

Wheel Alignment

In California it’s hard not to find a pothole, that’s why we recommend having your vehicle’s alignment checked at least once a year or every 15,000 miles.  Having your vehicle properly aligned will help to maintain proper tire wear and suspension performance.  You can have your alignment checked in under 30 minutes with our latest equipment.  

Engine and Cabin Filter

Your engine and air condition performance depends on having clean air filters.  Overtime, debris will be caught in the filters which will limit the efficiency of the air to move freely.  We will check your vehicle’s filters during our courtesy vehicle health inspection.  Typically, filter need replacements are needed every 15,000 to 25,000 miles. 

Yes.  Overtime, wear and tear can take a toll on your vehicle.  Having your vehicle maintained regularly will help to eliminate unnecessary repairs, keep it running efficiently, and avoid breakdowns on the road.  We never want to see you stranded, that’s why we follow your vehicle’s scheduled maintenance intervals. 

This service depends on a few factors, but mostly the age and miles of your vehicle.  The most common scheduled maintenance includes an oil change, filter replacement, and tire rotation.  We will research the necessary maintenance based on the vehicle manufacture.
