  1. Oil Changes And A “Vehicle Check-Up Report”

Oil changes are absolutely critical for the health of your engine. If you don’t change your oil at the recommended service interval, your engine will begin wearing more quickly. It will also become less efficient, and if you go for long enough without an oil change, it could seize and stop working entirely.

Most cars need their oil changed between every 5,000 and 10,000 miles, or every 6 months, whichever comes first. This depends on the type of oil that you are supposed to use in your engine. Consult your owner’s manual for the proper service interval.

At a Ford Quick Lane service appointment, you’ll also get a computer-based diagnostic “check-up” which can help you identify any other potential issues with your vehicle, and prevent them.

  1. Comprehensive Tire Services

You can have your tires rotated,  which should be done every 5,000 miles or 6 months for optimal wear and tire lifespan. They will also inflate them to the proper PSI, which keeps you safe and improves fuel efficiency.

Your tires will also be inspected for wear. If the tread is dangerously low, you can purchase a new set of tires, and have them mounted and balanced properly, to ensure the longest possible lifespan.

  1. Brake Inspection

Your brakes are the most important safety systems on your car. Your brake pads will be inspected to make sure they are not overly-worn. Your rotors will also be inspected and checked for scouring or grooves which could decrease brake performance, and your brake calipers and master cylinder will be checked, to make sure they are operating properly, and that your brake fluid is in good condition.

  1. Battery Testing

A dead battery can leave you stranded on the side of the road. Battery testing will ensure that you won’t run into any issues, and if your battery is low, it can be quickly replaced with a brand-new model.

  1. Cooling System Inspection

If your car overheats even once, permanent damage can be caused to your engine. To avoid this, it’s best to have your cooling system checked regularly. Your water pump, radiator, coolant lines, and your coolant will be inspected, to ensure that your engine is protected, especially during the warmer months.

  1. Belt And Hose Inspections

If your serpentine belt fails, or one of your hoses for coolant, vacuum, brake fluid, or fuel fails, it can cause you to break down, or even damage your engine. The same is true of timing belts.

All of your belts and hoses will be examined for cracks, dry rot, and wear, and replaced if they are deemed to be unsafe or otherwise compromised. This will keep your engine – and your car – in good shape for years to come.
