Car Maintenance Prior To Your Next Road Trip

This time of year many vehicle owners start planning their next road trip adventures. As the price of airlines tickets increase, many people are choosing to drive to their summer vacation destination. No matter what type of road trip you may be planning, the first thing on your checklist should be to get your vehicle seen at St. Paul Automotive for road trip car maintenance. No matter what type of vehicle you own or how many miles happen to be on it, getting it checked before a long trip is a crucial component to your safety and the longevity of your vehicle.

Standard Vehicle Maintenance

Your standard vehicle maintenance is typically required every 3,000-7,500 miles. This is of course dependent on the type of vehicle you drive, it’s age and even our environmental conditions. An important consideration before any road trip would be to ask yourself if your vehicle will go beyond the recommended mileage before maintenance can or should be performed. If so, it’s safer to go ahead and get it done ahead of time. At St. Paul Automotive, we will check your vehicle for all fluid maintenance and perform oil changes if warranted. We check fluids to ensure that the bearings stay cool and all other parts are moving smoothly (pistons, rings, cylinders, etc.). Every fluid we replace and refill is done based on your vehicle’s manufacturer recommendation.

Going Above and Beyond

Not only do we perform your standard maintenance, our experienced and professional technicians will stay on the lookout for any potential problems your vehicle may have arising. From spark plug damage to engine failure, our certified technicians can scout out potential issues and repair or replace things before it becomes a larger problem during your trip. We even offer a full engine tune-up and fuel system cleaning service for vehicles that need it. By the time we hand the keys back over to you, our hope is that your vehicle will be running more smoothly and efficiently.

Road trips should be a fun thing! The last thing you want is to end up broken down on the side of the road calling a tow truck. Before you set off, be sure to stop in and see us at St. Paul Automotive for your road trip car maintenance. Your vacation will thank you!
