Why vehicle maintenance
is important

Regular vehicle maintenance is an effective measure to preserve the longevity of your car and ensure your safety at all times. A periodic inspection helps keep your vehicle in good condition as it will save you from unexpected mishaps and expenses. During an inspection, technicians can detect issues early and proffer solutions. If the problems in your vehicle are not detected by technicians early enough, it could worsen the vehicle's condition. Reducing the depreciating value of your car and maintenance of car efficiency are other significant reasons vehicle maintenance is essential. At Jumbo Auto, we provide the following services:

1. Oil change and filter change

Oil change and filter change is one of the essential aspects of vehicle maintenance because their negligence can cause severe problems for your engine. The function of the oil filter is to strain harmful elements, which can be in the form of debris, dirt, and metal fragments, while the engine oil helps lubricate engine parts to prevent wear and tear. The filter strains out harmful particles that can enter the oil and damage your engine in the long run. Manufacturers usually recommend that vehicle owners change their oil and oil filters every three to six months to maintain the engine’s efficiency.

Why change your oil and filter?

It is crucial to change your oil and filter to preserve the functionality of your engine. Negligence in changing your engine oil after the recommended time can damage your engine. Constant use of your vehicle would expose your oil to harmful particles. The function of the filter is to strain these particles, and prolonged overuse beyond the recommended usage can make it become clogged. When you have a clogged oil filter, the volume of oil your engine receives will reduce and impede its efficiency. Also, negligence in changing the oil will reduce its effectiveness as a lubricant, affecting the engine parts' function in your vehicle.

2. Vehicle tune up

Our technicians are experts in engine tune-ups. Periodic engine tune-ups are required to ensure the smooth function of your engine parts. During vehicle tune-ups, our experts usually center on inspecting and replacing components of the ignition and engine operation. Technicians inspect spark plugs, engine air filter, fuel filter, fuel system cleaning, PCV valve, distributor cap and rotor, and throttle body during a comprehensive tune-up. Based on what technicians discover during the tune-up, they recommend replacements where necessary. The benefits of periodic vehicle tune up include extended longevity, improved engine performance and fuel economy, and reduced cost of repairs.

3. Lubrication fluids and coolant Flush

Car fluids are the essential fluids that keep your car working effectively. These fluids have lubricating or cooling functions.

Coolant sludge removal

Coolant flush helps your engine maintain a cool temperature while in operation. Coolant flush eliminates debris buildup that can cause overheating and damage your car's cooling system. These are signs you need a coolant flush: regular overheating, aged vehicle, and indicators from your car's internal thermometer or heat indicator.

Brake fluid flush

We recommend that you avoid ignoring the importance of a periodic brake fluid flush, as it is vital to user safety. Brake fluid flush eliminates old and contaminated and replaces them with fresh brake fluid. Manufacturers recommend that vehicle owners have a brake fluid flush every two years. Indicators that your vehicle needs a brake fluid flush are:

Transmission fluid flush

Transmission fluid flush is a procedure to remove old and contaminated transmission fluid from a vehicle and replace it with fresh transmission fluid. Refusing to change the transmission fluid when due can cause lubrication problems for your engine's transmission and may lead to damage. We recommend regular transmission filter replacement, gestate seal replacement.
