According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
Lance is the only person in town you should be taking your RR/LR to for maintenance and/or repair. Super nice, very knowledgeable and trustworthy. He has a great rep among the community and it's well deserved!
Superb! Lance is the most honest mechanic in town! He has worked on all my vehicles.
Can't say enough good things! I was recommended by two of my friends and I'm so glad I was. Thoroughly explained the issue, the options and the costs associated. Couldn't be happier with the results! Thanks guys!
Lance's Foreign Auto do a great job of making sure everything is taken care of every time. Experts in their field and efficient at their work. I would recommend them to anyone.
This is the 3rd BMW I have taken to him. Love the knowledge, honestly he could lie straight to my face and I would believe it lol. Way cheaper than Euro Fix and the Dealer. Everything was well in line.
I recommend Lance's Foreign Auto Repair to everyone I know! They have always been upfront and honest about what my car needs, never up-selling. This shop was recommended to me after failed attempts at other foreign repair shops and immediately fixed my issue, at an honest and reasonable rate.
This was our first experience with Lance's. We were impressed. In addition to making the requested repair, we were given a list of other things that need to be done. We will definitely be back.
When you yourself are an ignorant car owner it's hard to trust any mechanic but Lance will take the time to walk you through each repair, and is honest in what needs to be done immediately and what can wait. His pricing is fair. After 3 years under his care, my 120k+ Volvo is running great.
Lance was recommended by my Rover mechanic. He got me in and out quickly and the price was great. Definitely will be doing business with him. Highly recommend this Shop for any Range Rover repair. Way better than the Stealership.
My head light went out yesterday and was especially difficult to change given the placement of the access to it. Since I couldn't do it myself, I called around to a few import repair shops and found that many wanted $200+ for less than hours worth of work. I called Lance's and they were able to fit me in same day AND offered a very reasonable price, without attempting to tack on unnecessary fees or up sell. Would recommend and will be back.
