Preventative Maintenance

The best way to keep your car or light truck running right for years to come is preventative maintenance. By keeping problems from happening in the first place, you avoid many costs and difficulties. McDermott Automotive recommends you follow the scheduled maintenance suggested by your vehicle’s manufacturer.

The maintenance schedule within your owner’s manual is provided by the people who understand your vehicle the best—the company that built it. The manufacturer provides suggestions for how often you need to change your oil, filters, driving belts, timing belts and more.

While some preventative maintenance—such as topping off fluids—can be performed by the vehicle’s owner, other, more complicated procedures should be done by experts like the team at McDermott Automotive . Our team can keep your vehicle in top shape by performing the following maintenance:
