PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

Courtesy of the Automotive Service Association

The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments.
  • Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Excellent service. I recommend them to everyone I know. Fast, easy, and best prices in town.

Quick and easy repair for my tire and very affordable.


-Brandon L.

Can do most of anything. Skip the overpriced dealers and go here first. Very good customer service.


-Shawn B.

I always check here before I buy. My experiences have been positive, and they have saved me money on more than one occasion.


-Dennis M.

We always buy our tires at Springdale Tire. They have always been honest with us, which is a valuable asset. They are busy so plan to drop off your vehicle or walk down the street and eat a bite at Susan's while you wait.


-Marsha K.

Great place to do business. I've been having tires repaired here for almost 20 years. They have always been friendly and try to work me in quickly. They have good prices, and I trust them. Recently I went in to have a screw removed from my tire. They could have said they repaired it and charged me the fee, but they were honest with me and told me that the screw hadn't actually punctured my tire, it was only wedged in. They didn't charge me a dime, and I was on my way. They do stay extremely busy, but I'm sure it's just because they are such a great place to do business with!


-Queen Bee

-Kate B.

I started going here about 10 years ago. They are great at customer service. They are one business who will not overcharge you. Once I was quoted $4K by a dealer for a repair. I brought it here, and $50 solved the whole problem. Loyal customer.


-Brian A.

I always go here for whatever I need. They are really polite and help whenever they can without overcharging you. I tell everyone to go here and have even ridden with a few people to make sure this is where they went. Good job!
