With busy schedules, it is hard for many drivers to remember the last time they visited an auto shop for some type of car service. Sometimes unintentional, they extend the time and mileage intervals between services, but they may find out that it is not worth what they think they are saving! They may end up spending more on an urgent car repair than the basic service would have been upfront.

Here is a list of some of what happens when your car needs serviced:

  • Decreased fuel efficiency
  • Loss of power and performance
  • Toxic fumes and smells entering the passenger cabin
  • Noisy motor from dirty oil and sludge build-up
  • Brakes have lost their effectiveness in stopping

Even though you may be able to drive your car for a while, hidden engine damage could be occurring without you being aware of it. For example, if you drive a lot of miles with dirty oil or little to no oil, it won’t take long until the head gaskets or pistons are damaged, resulting in a car that won’t run at all. Engine repair can cost a small fortune. But just for a few dollars on a basic oil change, this damage could have been prevented in the first place.

Tip to Remember: Don’t wait until you have car problems before taking care of recommended car service. It’s simple—just follow the maintenance service schedule stated in your owner’s manual, or ask your car repair technician to let you know when certain services should be done, such as oil changes or transmission flushes. You will then be able to drive down the road with confidence knowing that you are driving as safe as possible!
