An important part in routine vehicle maintenance is your fluids! When your vehicle visits Bob's Main Street Auto & Towing we do an once over on your vehicle and take samples of your vehicle's fluids. It is important to change these at the mileage intervals recommended by the manufacturer to keep your vehicle on the road as long as possible. It may seem like a decent amount of money to invest in your vehicle in the given moment. Failing to change out your fluids can cause more expensive repairs if the fluids are not taken care of.

What filters does my vehicle have?

What filters does my vehicle have?

You may be wondering if your vehicle has an air filter or cabin air filter. Yes, every vehicle has an air filter and most of your vehicles will have a cabin air filter! The vehicle's air filter prevents harmful debris, dirt and contaminants from entering the vehicle's engine. The vehicle's cabin filter prevents dust, pollen, dirt and other pollutants from entering the vehicle through the vehicle's A/C and heat vents. We recommend to change the air filter every 15,000 miles or once a year. If you drive in more severe environments (dusty areas) we recommend to check the air filter more often. We recommend the cabin air filter to be changed once a year as well. Call us today to schedule an appointment to have us check your filters

Think of oil in your vehicle like your body and water. Our bodies are 60% water. There's always H2O streaming through us. Yes, we can go a few days without it, but it is still important to replenish ourselves and stay hydrated since we lose that water in different ways. However, the longer we go without water, the more our body starts to shut down and not cooperate. The same goes with our vehicles. Oil is constantly pumping throughout the vehicle and its engine. Our job, as the user, is to maintain the oil so that it's always clean and at the level it needs to be. Yes, the vehicle could last months on end without changing the oil, but in the meantime the oil is getting more and more dirty, sludge-like, and building up particles. The more dirty the oil gets, the wo ... read more
