Toyota maintenance tips for Fuel Efficiency – Take1

Use the right oil. Whether you take your car for an oil change, or you change it yourself, be sure it’s getting the grade of motor oil recommended in your owner’s manual. For example, using 10W-30 motor oil in an engine designed to use 5W-30 can lower your gas mileage by one to two percent. Choosing a motor oil with additives that reduce friction also creates a more fuel efficient car.

 

KwikKar at Legacy & Warren only uses the best oils as recommended by Toyota. Check with our certified technicians on additional maintenance tips.

Brakes, brakes and brakes

Are your ready for the Spring Break? Are you planning to take a road trip? It is advisable to inspect the brake system, including lines, hoses, parking brake and brake fluid for proper level, if you plan on driving your vehicle in rough terrains such as camp sites. We rely on our brakes and something as simple as a brake pad change can help put an end to any worry about brake safety.

Brake system inspections includes the following:

  • Inspect brake pads and rotors
  • Inspect brake lines and brake hoses
  • Inspect brake fluid level and top off

Our certified technicians can recommend any repairs your car might need for optimal driving.

Brakes, Alignment, Oil Change and more before Spring Break

Now that we are past Superbowl, this is the best time for your pending auto repair work. Weather in February seems to be awesome so far but as you know historically February is known for sleets and snow in Texas. So before the bad weather shows up, get your critical auto repair / maintenance work done.

KwikKarAutoCenter at Legacy & Warren is open six days a week and ready to get you prepared for the Spring-break.

Spring maintenance – Brakes

After a season of snow and ice it is advisable to inspect the brake system, including lines, hoses, parking brake and brake fluid for proper level. We rely on our brakes and something as simple as a brake pad change can help put an end to any worry about brake safety.

Spring maintenance – Alignment

Deep potholes aren’t friendly to shocks and struts. An inspection to determine wear or leaks can alleviate bigger issues down the road. Also having your wheels properly aligned after a season of tough conditions can help keep you on the road in a safe direction.

Replace Power Steering Fluid on Ford F-series

The fluids in your F-series keeps your truck going during the long work day or even just to get your toys back and forth to your next vacation spot.

 

That’s why it’s important to change them regularly. While many people change the oil, the coolant or transmission fluids more frequently, one fluid many don’t think of much is the power steering fluid. Over time, the seals, O-rings and internal power-steering components wear out. When they break apart, they contaminate the power-steering fluid, which forces the power-steering pump to work harder and eventually break down. You’ll eventually chew up your power-steering pump. It’ll have to be replaced at a cost of several hundred dollars, or you’ll have no power steering.
