Preventative Maintenance

Oil Change in State College, PA

Cars that last over a decade have one thing in common: preventative maintenance.

Throughout the life of your vehicle, the manufacturer expects you to visit an automotive service center for factory scheduled maintenance. This includes common services like oil changes and tire rotations. You may also need to replace certain system parts, like brake pads and rotors, as identified in your owner's manual.

Following your maintenance schedule not only helps you get the longest life from your vehicle, it also keeps your car or truck covered under the factory warranty and extended warranties.

It makes sense. Your car manufacturer doesn't want to pay for a vehicle that hasn't been taken care of properly. Automotive maintenance can save you money in the long run by reducing the chance that unexpected problems will occur. It can also keep you covered if something does go wrong that shouldn't.

Where Do I Go for Preventive Maintenance in State College, PA?

You might think your best bet is to go to the nearest dealer in State College, PA for car care. However, you don't need a dealer to keep your factory warranty valid. That's been true since 1975, thanks to something called the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act protects you when choosing where to go for automotive service. Under it, you're allowed to go to an independent automotive service center and use aftermarket parts for repairs and maintenance. Your factory warranty will remain intact as long as you follow the maintenance schedule.

Tire Town provides preventive maintenance for State College, PA, Bellefonte, PA, Boalsburg, PA, and surrounding areas.

Common maintenance services we offer include but are not limited to:

  • Oil & Filter Change: An oil change is one of the most common maintenance services requested, with good reason. Your car requires lubrication so its mechanical parts work seamlessly together. Without good motor oil, friction will cause wear and tear on metal parts as they grind together. Eventually, this could lead to your engine overheating. An oil change is necessary because oil becomes dirty over time. Oil change intervals vary depending on whether you use synthetic or regular oil and how frequently you drive.
  • Tire Rotation: A tire rotation helps control the rate of wear for your tires. During this service, a technician swaps the position of your tires. Changing tire positions is important because tires wear at different rates depending on their location. For example, your front right tire might hit pot holes frequently on turns, while your front and rear left tires miss them. In addition, front tires have the weight of the engine to support, while rear tires don't have the same amount of pressure on them. Rotating tires, usually around every 6 months, helps with tire performance and life. You don't want to end up at the tire shop needing one or two tires replaced, in part because performance suffers when you mix and match tread levels.
  • Spring Checkup: Before you hit the road for spring and summer, make sure your vehicle is running in top condition. No one wants to experience automotive problems on vacation, after all. A spring checkup ensures everything looks good for the hot months ahead.
  • Winter Checkup: Seasonal checkups are a great preventive practice. Cold and below zero temperatures have a negative affect on car batteries. Having your vehicle winterized helps prevent problems that could lead you on the side of the road in winter weather.
  • Wiper Blade Replacement: When you need new wiper blades, stop by Tire Town. We sell and install wiper blades to help you take on the weather.
