Preventative Maintenance

preventative-maintenanceAs a resident of Littleton North Carolina, you need your vehicle to get around. You cannot afford to be without your set of wheels for even a few days, and you work hard to prevent unexpected breakdowns and other problems.

You know how important it is to maintain your car, truck or SUV the right way, and you follow the preventative maintenance schedule recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer. At Lake Gaston Auto, we share your faith in the power of preventative maintenance, and we want to be your partner in that vital endeavor.

Oil Changes for Longer Engine Life

If there is one thing you can do to extend the life of your engine, it is changing the oil regularly. Most cars require oil changes at 3,000 mile intervals, but check your owner’s manual for the recommended schedule.

Over time, impurities in the oil build up, reducing the lubricating properties of your engine and putting the moving parts at risk. By changing the oil every 3,000 miles, you can stay one step ahead of these problems, and Lake Gaston Auto is always here to help. We will change your oil, get you in and out quickly and keep your engine protected.

Tire Rotation for a Lower Cost of Ownership

A new set of tiers is a major investment, one you need to protect. Rotating the tires regularly, usually at every other oil change, is the best way to extend the tread wear and lower your overall cost of ownership.

We can design a tire rotation schedule that works for you, so you can extend the life of your tires and the length of time between tire replacements. From brand new tires to older ones, every tire needs the right rotation.

Transmission Flushes for Greater Peace of Mind

The transmission in your vehicle is a delicate system, one that needs the right care and maintenance. Flushing the old oil from your transmission and replacing it with new fluid is an essential part of preventative maintenance, and one that Lake Gaston Auto is happy to provide.

This essential service must be done right, and all of the oil fluid must be removed. We use state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that none of the old transmission fluid remains, then we replace the fluid and filter for a longer lasting system.

Fluid Top-Offs and Leak Detection

You should be checking your automotive fluids regularly, topping off as necessary and looking for leaks. If you think you have an oil leak, a brake fluid leak or any other kind of leak, just bring your vehicle to Lake Gaston Auto and let us find it.

You cannot afford to let those fluid leaks go – they will get worse over time. At Lake Gaston Auto, we will find the leak fast, fix it quickly and get you back on the road as speedily as possible.
