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.
Tim is a mechanic you can trust. What a relief to find a great local repair shop.
Been going to Tim's shop just over a year - service is great - honest, reliable business.
Great work with great prices! Highly recommended.
Tim takes good care of you and your car. Always excellent service and fair prices. He looks out for you.
Got my annual inspection done. Techs were friendly AND they put the sticker on straight. I know, I know , to some a crooked sticker is no big deal BUT I like things neat and orderly. That indicates they take pride in what the work they do. I will be back.
Service has always been outstanding and the work is topnotch. Will always return to RMW for auto servicing and repairs and will unhesitatingly recommend to all because of the integrity and willingness to accommodate customers.
Really good service, always friendly, always reliable. It's nice to have someone service your car that you can trust and won't rip you off!
Once again Tim comes through. Brought my car in thinking it had a starter problem. Tim did his magic and discovered it was only a dying battery. Trustworthy, reliable and friendly service. It's nice to know true professionals still exist.
A first visit to RMW, and they took care of our vehicle with the utmost professionalism and great care. The prices were extremely fair! Our family has just found it's permanent repair shop. Thank you to Tim and the crew.
Great service, great conversation, just a great place to go. I was helped out when I couldn't find anyone else to help. Thank you so much, definitely got my business.
Great work and a fair price
My first time using RMW Automotive and I could not be happier! They did a great job servicing my 2009 Subaru Forester, performing all the work I requested and finding some other issues during the process that needed repairs...stayed in contact with me, explained issues, corrective action and costs, and performed it all in a thorough and professional manner! Prices are certainly competitive while quality of work is superior!
Had a great experience at RMW. Staff was professional and trustworthy. They went above and beyond to get my vehicle serviced in a timely manner. Will be returning for all my future car needs.
100% recommend, trustworthy I can usually do my own repairs on my vehicle but when it?s something complicated I can always rely on him.
I highly recommend this place. I called first thing in the mourning because i had a nail in my tire and when i got their they got me right in and pulled the tire and found another one. They patched them up at a vary reasonable price and sent me on my way. The owner Tim was vary knowledgeable and vary friendly this will be my new repair shop!
