The concept behind Auto Care Online is to give you, the owner of the car or truck, the most correct and complete information about the kind of service or preventive maintenance that your car, truck, SUV or even hybrid car needs, and when to do it.
Because later model cars require much less service than cars from the 50's, 60's or 70's. Newer cars do not need what we used to call a "tune-up", although other kinds of service, like oil changes, are still required. Auto repairs are expensive – It's more important than ever to keep your car or truck running longer, and decrease the overall operating expenses.
The goal of Auto Care Online is to help you to do just that.

The maintenance schedule is a listing of service and repair procedures performed at regular intervals, to prolong the life of your vehicle, and to minimize unexpected breakdowns.
Some vehicles are driven for short distances, and are not driven every day. Most vehicles are driven in "stop and go" traffic for hours at a time, and are driven regularly. Some vehicles are driven in warm climate zones, like California or Florida. Others are driven in areas like Alaska, Vermont or Canada. Some vehicles are involved in the construction business, and are carrying heavy loads. Others are used for a delivery business - with no heavy loads, but a lot of miles every day.
If a vehicle is used in the desert (hot and very dusty environment), it might need a change of oil, oil filter, and air filter much more frequently.
In short, to create the right maintenance schedule for your vehicle, the basis for this schedule should be the "Owner's Manual". Then this basic schedule should be modified in accordance with the climate zone, type of driving you do, age, mileage, and the condition of your particular vehicle.
Tires require constant, but not time- consuming attention:
Tires should be properly balanced. This is extremely important for all modern vehicles, especially for the front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicles. A tire that is out of balance creates noise and vibration. This is unpleasant for the driver and passengers, and the tire wears out much faster.
Air pressure should be checked regularly (at least once a week). Buy yourself a good quality tire gauge, and check the air pressure, always on cold tires.
Most late-model vehicles require four - wheel alignment that should be checked every 30,000 kilometers.
Do not forget to check the air pressure in the spare tire at least once a month.
Auto Care Online will give you basic guidelines for following your vehicle's preventive maintenance schedule. You can't go wrong following these simple recommendations, and adjusting the maintenance schedule intervals in accordance with your type of driving.
