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.
Not only do I trust John and the guys, I consider them friends. They have done numerous repairs and provided service for both my wife and my BMW's. They do a terrific job every time. They always make time to take a ride with me when I hear a noise, and always work to keep repair costs reasonable. I wouldn't take my car anywhere else!
The best review I could give these guys is that I trust them.
The guys at Pry are terrific. Very trustworthy and knowledgeable and take the time to explain things thoroughly. I highly recommend them!
I did't start going to pry until about 2015. Didn't even know they were right down the road from me. First time I went with my saab, they couldn't find anything wrong with the car. When I went to pick the car up, they told me no charge, REALLY? They took time to go over my car and I was expecting some sort of charge. They won me over right then and there. I have brought my other saab there numerous times and have always been happy with their work. They always call me and tell me my options about car repairs. Highly recommended
Honesty, skill, communication, fair prices, and they use high quality or the best quality parts. I'm very satisfied.
John really has a really great team! A fair price and great work that they stand behind 100%. I won't take my cars anywhere else.
Great Guys, Great Service, Great Price. Need I say more? I would recommend them to anyone.
The best service I've ever gotten for my car in this area, fair prices, great work, had a blown engine brought it to them and they made the car feel like new, it now runs better than it has ever ran I now only take my car to them very trustworthy mechanics.
