If you own a vehicle, it’s important to follow a regular maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance ensures that your car is running its best, and it can also help prevent you from paying for expensive repairs later down the line. The professionals at Accurate Auto in Beaverton, OR offer a wide range of scheduled maintenance services including oil and filter changes, safety inspections, tune-ups, and alignments. When you take good care of your vehicle, it will reward you with many miles of enjoyment throughout the years.

Oil changes are one of the most important things you can do for your vehicle. The motor oil is what keeps your engine cool and lubricated. As parts start to rub together, they create grime, metal shavings, and other debris. Without regular oil and filter changes, this debris can build up inside your engine and potentially cause it to overheat. Dirty motor oil can also cause serious damage to your engine. That’s why getting an oil change every 3,000 miles or so is your best line of defense against engine damage.

Visit Accurate Auto whenever you need a tune-up so we can make sure your engine is firing as it should. We’ll check the condition of your spark plugs and distributor cap and replace them as needed. You may just need a fuel injection cleaning, which should help your car to run smoothly. A regular tune-up is another smart way to extend the life of your engine. Not only will it run much better, but it will also give you better fuel economy, saving you even more in the long run.

As you drive over potholes and bumpy roads, your wheels can start to get out of alignment. Come and see us for an alignment so your car runs on the straight and narrow. When your wheels are misaligned, it creates uneven tire wear. This can wear down the tread on your tires and possibly result in a flat tire or a dangerous blowout, leaving you stranded. Worn out tires can also make your steering feel uneven and can even cost you more at the gas pump. Whether it’s an oil change, a tune-up, alignment, or another form of scheduled maintenance, these simple things can help to ensure that your vehicle lasts a long time.
