Make Your Vehicle Last

Posted March 21, 2021 7:16 AM



We live in such a disposable society. It's amazing all the stuff we throw away. New stuff comes out so fast, we just toss the old and move on. In the old days, NY folks were real sticklers about taking care of their things. If something got lost or ruined by neglect, tough - they had to do without. Most East Greenbush drivers couldn't afford new vehicles very often, so they had to make them last as long as they could.

It's a good thing that vehicles are more reliable these days. They just don't break down as often. And the good news for us NY penny pinchers is that a modern vehicle can easily go 200,000 miles/320,000 km with proper care. The engineering and the manufacturing quality is tremendous. The missing ingredient is us East Greenbush vehicle owners making sure we follow the vehicle manufacturer's recommended maintenance schedules.

Every time you go a little farther between recommended oil changes, you have created an opportunity for sludge to be formed and for clogged passages. Then some vehicle parts don't get properly lubricated and they start to wear out faster. Skip a cooling system service and the corrosion inhibitors become depleted; the radiator starts being damaged - one step closer to a failure. Same thing is true for transmission service, power brakes, fuel system cleaning - really everything on your schedule.

It is probably even more important for older vehicles. Those engines and other systems have had more time to get dirty, so they are a bit more stressed anyway. But it is never too late to get back on track with your auto maintenance and to hold off further damage.

And it really does start with the oil change. When you get a full service oil change in East Greenbush at Pro Tech Tire & Auto, we top off all your fluids and check for other items that are on your maintenance schedule. It's like your safety net. Go in for an oil change on time, and let your service advisor at Pro Tech Tire & Auto help you keep track of the rest.

Some things are going to wear out along the way, things like alternators, water pumps, etc. But fixing those at Pro Tech Tire & Auto is cheaper than a new car  payment for East Greenbush drivers. And taking care of problems early means they have less time to mess with other things. It is like having high cholesterol - you don't want to wait for a heart attack before you address it.

Called late in afternoon and explained to owner my car needed to be aligned...we discussed what was going on when driving. Asked could I bring car in tomorrow morning beteeen 8 and 9 and leave for them to work on. By 4pm was driving home, car handling fine. Very thorough in explanation of what to expect when dropped off and what was done when picked it up. I was treated as a knowledgeable adult not just a wonan as most garaged do. Very pleased!
