It's an old but wise saying. When you regularly take care of the simple things, then it helps to ensure the investment of time and money in your vehicle, will also help to keep it on the road longer, and potentially prevent bigger problems down the road.
Miles Automotive is a full-service maintenance and auto repair service station. We offer a wide range of general auto care services.
Our basic auto maintenance services include:
Factory Recommended Service/Maintenance
Automotive and auto parts come with a factory recommended service and maintenance schedule. The manufacturer will tell you how often to service or replace an auto part. At Miles Automotive LLC, we offer factory recommended service/maintenance. Our highly skilled auto mechanics offer comprehensive knowledge and experience. At Miles Automotive LLC, all your factory recommended service/maintenance needs are handled with the latest diagnostic equipment. Remember, we work on all American and imported vehicles (either diesel or gas engines).
30/60/90K Mileage Maintenance
As time goes by, various auto repair and maintenance needs come up at different intervals. Most manufacturers recommend car maintenance in intervals of 30,000 miles. This is the 30/60/90K mile schedule (issued by the manufacturers to car owners). Trust the experts at Miles Automotive LLC to keep you on schedule, and help you preserve the condition of the vehicle, optimize its performance, and increase its resale value. The 30/60/90K service includes the following:
Oil, Lube and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Miles Automotive LLC in Easton, MD 21601.
Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road, and life-saving technologies like anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires don't have a good grip on the pavement.
As the adage goes, nothing lasts forever. Car owners still need to replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires. See more details about our Tire Services
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Miles Automotive LLC for all your vehicle's repair needs.
A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack.
Auto A/C & Heating
If the breeze from those open windows just isn't cutting it, come by our shop in Easton to get an expert opinion on what we can do to fix your car's air conditioning or heating problems. Sometimes, when your car's ventilations' systems are not working properly, this could also indicate a much bigger mechanical issue that is on the horizon. With our Advanced Diagnostics, we can help not only figure out the problem, but help you drive in comfort. We offer affordable prices and guaranteed workmanship.
Coolant System Flush
A car's air conditioning system contains a coolant which transfers excess heat from one part of the engine and finally loses it through the radiator fins. With time, the a/c coolant becomes old and dirty. The old coolant will negatively impact the system's performance. To make sure the system is working effectively, consider having a regular coolant system flush. A coolant flush is basic maintenance for your car's cooling system. Call 410-822-0025 or visit Miles Automotive LLC in Easton, MD 21601 for all your coolant system flush and fill needs. Ensure maximum performance from your vehicle's heating and cooling systems today.
Radiators are heat exchangers for cooling your car's internal combustion engine. A radiator cools the engine by circulating an engine coolant through the engine block - it then loses the heat to the atmosphere through radiation. A radiator has a set of tubes through which the engine coolant flows. Fins surround these tubes. When the radiator fails, the excess heat produced by the engine could damage the engine components. To prevent this from happening, have your radiator serviced regularly.
A radiator is the part of your vehicle that keeps the engine cool and protects it from excessive heating. To be cool, the radiator needs to remain clean - always. With time, sludge, rust and other solid deposits build up inside your car's radiator. These make the cooling system become clogged and less effective. This in effect hurts your vehicle's performance. A regular radiator flush is enough to keep the system in shape. For this reason, make radiator flushing a part of your routine car maintenance schedule.
Preparation for Seasonal Changes
As the headline at the top of this page indicates, an ounce of prevention goes a long way to help keep you on the road and keep you safe! As the seasons change, especially just before Summer or Winter, it is essential for you to have Miles Automotive give your vehicle a once over. Recommended services include:
Electronics Systems Diagnostics and Repair
No one likes to see their Check Engine Light come on. The light could mean something simple like a loose gas cap, or it could indicate a costly problem like a bad catalytic converter. Don't drive around not knowing or worse ignore that light, and neglect your vehicle's electronic systems! At Miles Automotive, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call or stop by our shop for expert assistance.
Computer Care in your Vehicle
Miles Automotive LLC has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer diagnostics, updates and reflashing. The primary reason to reflash a computer (which basically means updating or reinstalling its software) is that an update has been issued by the manufacturer. It's a very simple procedure, and there may be minor updates that the car hasn't had.
The manufacturer may have tweaked the transmission-shifting algorithm or some other parameters that are not crucial but may bring slight improvements to drivability, mileage or emissions. Since auto manufacturers are coming out with automobile updates every day, there may be a reprogram available for your vehicle.
Today, car manufacturers include at least one computer in motor vehicles. This computer's main function is to monitor and adjust engine and transmission operations. The computer receives input information from different sensors. The computer controls spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors so as to get you the best possible car performance. Failure of the car computer will greatly affect the things it controls. To get the most out of your car's computer, have it evaluated regularly for updates and proper operation. If it is already failing, have it repaired or replaced.
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right.
Correctly aligned tires will reduce tire wear, and ensure that your vehicle travels straight and true (without "pulling" to one side). Your tires should be checked during routine maintenance, but if you notice uneven tire wear or your car is pulling to one side, you should have a qualified automotive technician examine your car.
