tune up bannerThe word "Tune Up" is probably the most misused and misunderstood Automotive term. According to the Merriam-Webster's dictionary under the term "Tune-up" it says: "general adjustment to insure operation at peak efficiency"

McKay Auto Repair Wheel AlignmentIn its most basic form, a wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. The purpose of these adjustments is maximum tire life and a vehicle that tracks straight and true when driving along a straight and level road.

Why Do Preventive Maintenance

A properly maintained vehicle will operate more efficiently, be more dependable, last longer, and ensure a safer ride for you and your family. Your owner's manual out-lines detailed maintenance schedules that should be performed on all your vehicle's components and systems. These maintenance schedules are mileage driven.

aj transmission

Maintenance schedules offered by car manufacturers always include the transmission. As stated earlier, transmission fluid plays a critical role in how a transmission functions and the car part longevity. Like engine oil, transmission fluid should be checked and changed on a regular basis; however, the interval is different for all vehicles and dependent on the transmission and fluid type as well as use.

tire rotationTires should be serviced periodically following the rotation patterns provided in the vehicle's owner's manual or as established by the industry. Using tire rotation as a preventative maintenance will equalize front-to-rear and side-to-side wear rates while enhancing wear quality and pattern noise. Any minor 1/32" to 2/32" differences in front-to-rear tread depth between tires that might be encountered immediately after periodic tire rotations at 3,000-5,000 mile intervals won't upset the vehicle's hydroplaning balance and should not preclude rotating tires. For that matter, any differences in wear rates actually indicate that tire rotations should be done more frequently.
