According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
Great service, very fair with price, even offered to pick me up at my house as I didn't have a ride to pick up my car that day. Whenever someone asks about car repair I tell them to take it to Dave's Auto.
Good, honest people and a very friendly staff. They will provide rides or a loner when needed. Always call you to give an advance price before work is done on larger repairs. They will graciously re-visit a problem and fix it. I only use Dave's.
I always am very happy with Dave's Auto Clinic, they keep my 2006 Honda CRV in great shape and are friendly and courteous. Five stars and highly recommend them!
I have been a long time customer of Dave's Auto and have always been 100% satisfied. Even when doing an oil change, Dave thoroughly looks over the car to make sure everything is o.k. Dave is a very honest and professional mechanic and I have the utmost confidence in him.
We have been going to Dave's Auto Clinic for 12 years. The service is top notch and we are grateful they take there time looking things over carefully and let us know if things start to wear or leak so we can do preventive maintenance and keep our vehicles in tip top shape! The staff is excellent and very accommodating!
I'm not from the area and chose Dave's Auto Clinic based upon the reviews. I would highly recommend them, very honest, prompt, and fair.
Dave's Auto Clinic does excellent work. They have done work on several vehicles for me and have always done a great job. The owner is a person of integrity and cares for his customers.
Dave is great, we trust him. He does not suggest repairs that are not needed. We moved several years ago, but still make the 45 minute drive to have him service our vehicles. We won't go anywhere else!
My car overheated at a music festival and Dave's was the closest place I could find that was also near a car rental agency. This has been without a doubt the most positive auto mechanic experience I have ever had. They even held onto my car for a month in their back lot until I could fly back out to Michigan to pick it up! I really wish Dave's was in Minnesota, because I'd always take my car to them!
I live an hour away from Fremont, when my brakes failed. I just randomly started calling repair places. The first two said they were too busy to help me. I called Dave's. They too were extremely busy, however he knew I needed help and told me to get the car to him. They did a beautiful repair on the brakes, costing less then what I expected. All the staff was extremely friendly and the repair person who fixed my brakes was efficient and knowledgeable. I am very grateful for Dave's kindness and willingness to help me. I HIGHLY recommend Dave's Auto Clinic.
