Why it's worth scheduling your car service soon at Lewis Motors

You've already made an excellent investment when you drove home in your Chevrolet model from Lewis Chevrolet of Garden City. The next wise investment, of course, is allowing us to give your car, truck or SUV the regular, factory-recommended maintenance it needs to provide you with the long-running reliability you deserve. Here's why it's well worth contacting us to schedule your next service visit soon.

Regular oil changes: Like good nutrition for your Chevy

As you are probably aware, the oil in your engine is the lifeblood of your car. High-grade motor oil helps carry away those tiny, harmful dust and grime particles that can gradually wear down your engine and shorten the life of your vehicle. A regular infusion of fresh new motor oil gives your engine the quality lubrication that helps keep all your engine parts running smoothly, efficiently and dependably over the long run.

How often should you change your oil? The ground rules have changed

Not long ago, the most common rule of thumb was that your engine oil and filter should be changed about every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. But unless you're doing a lot of stop-and-go driving, today's more advanced synthetic motor oils allow you to drive your car, truck or SUV around Scott City or Dodge City, KS for 7,500 to 10,000 miles between oil changes. That can vary, depending on how you drive so ask us for the best frequency for your vehicle.

Other essential fluids are worth monitoring

Just as your engine benefits from a regular flush and engine oil refill, so do other vital components. For example, it's a good idea to change your brake oil, although it's not needed nearly as often. In fact, you will probably be fine if you change brake oil every four to five years. Power steering fluid can be changed at even longer intervals: As much as 75,000 to 100,000 miles. Automatic transmission fluid can go about as long.

Your car's coolant, or antifreeze, can be changed about every two years or 30,000 miles for certain kinds of fluid, while extended coolant can wait as long as five years or 100,000 miles. For proper visibility and safety, let us change your windshield wiper fluid and replace it with new fluid twice a year, or about every 6,000 miles.

We can watch out for your battery

At your request, we will be happy to check the condition of your battery, to help make sure it doesn't lose its charge and leave you stranded out on the highway a long way from your home in Liberal KS. If your battery cables or connections are starting to get corroded, you might not notice but we will. We'll clean them to extend the life of your battery and advise you if you need a new one: We have plenty of powerful new batteries in stock.

Get in touch with us soon to schedule vital services

When your brakes are squeaking or grinding, book some time with us to take a look. If you schedule a visit early enough, your brakes might need only new pads.
