When Should I Take My Car to an Auto Repair Shop?

Most drivers have the basic knowledge about how to take good care of their car; however, there are some myths around this industry. Our intention is to debunk most common car maintenance myths in this blog post. Remember to take your car to an auto service regularly to get it checked.

A rule of thumb before driving your new car is to read the user manual because every car is different, and only by following the instructions of the manufacturer, you will be able to perform the right maintenance. Here is the list of the 8 most common myths about car maintenance:

  • 3,000-mile oil changes.
  • Chassis lubrication.
  • The standard tune-up.
  • Air filter swaps.
  • The transmission flush.
  • Radiator drains.
  • Fuel injectors need cleaning.
  • Warranty validity claims.

As we said previously, every car is different, soit is highly recommended to read the manufacturer’s manual before driving it. There is a general rumor about oil. The rumor states that oil should be changed every 3,000 miles, but this is not true because all cars consume and need different amounts of oil. If you take it to an auto repair shop, the mechanics will give you the best advice about the frequency for your oil change, and they will solve all your questions related to a vehicle.

Also, flushing the automatic transmission system is also often recommended as a routine maintenance; however, most manufacturers say that it is not until 60,000 miles that it actually needs changing. If you want your car to last longer and to be in good shape until the end of the days, we recommend you either to regularly take it to an auto service professional or read your user’s manual carefully.
