Preventative Maintenance for Engines

Preventative Maintenance for Engines

As all of us drivers know, the vehicle’s engine is what keeps us moving, if we don’t have a proper running engine we won’t be going anywhere. Good running engines also ensure that your engine doesn’t overheat while driving or cut out through an intersection. Having an improperly running engine is a safety issue when it comes to your vehicle and the safety of those inside. At Bob’s Main Street Auto & Towing, we suggest engine maintenance to prevent future issues. Each vehicle is made up of 1,000’s of components that work together to distribute power throughout the vehicle. Oil Changes; they are important!

We recommend every 3 months or 3,000 miles for synthetic blend oil and every 5 months or 5,000 mile for full synthetic oil. Tune Up: This tune up service is importan ... read more

The Importance of Alignments

The Importance of Alignments

It is very important to keep your vehicle aligned to the correct specifications. If the vehicle is not aligned correctly it can be damaging to your tires and affect the way the vehicle handles. When the vehicle's suspension is out of alignment there is an uneven amount of pressure on the tires that can cause you to go through tires faster. It can cause wear on the outer or inner area of the tire causing it to go bald which doesn't allow you to have full contact with the road. Having a vehicle that is properly aligned allows your tires to meet road at a proper angle which then prolongs the life of the tires. Call us today to schedule an appointment to check your vehicles alignment.
