How Do You Maintain Your Engine?

No matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive, maintenance is the key to giving your engine a long life. At Holmes Auto Repair in Fort Walton Beach, FL, we focus on keeping your engine running strong.

Engine maintenance encompasses many different procedures, and it is determined by factory recommended scheduled maintenance and maintenance performed as needed based on the particular needs of your vehicle. When you purchase your car, there will be a recommended amount of miles between oil changes. When you visit Holmes Auto Repair for that change, we will change your air filter and add engine fluids as needed.

Oil, spark plugs, wires, coolant, filters and more need to be changed regularly and on time to keep your vehicle running smooth. Coils, sensors, modules, and other components need to be repaired or replaced at different points throughout your vehicle’s life, depending on the running condition of your engine. Waiting until something goes wrong can cause more harm than good.

Finally, there are components and systems like your valve train, lubrication systems, and fuel system that need to be inspected, cleaned, and adjusted when necessary to ensure longevity, reliability, running condition, and efficiency. All of these fall under engine maintenance and are the greatest contributing factor to an engine that lasts for years.

When you see a car that runs like new with 300,000 miles on the odometer, it’s more than just a good engine. It’s been maintained correctly, and it hasn’t made it this far on sheer coincidence and good luck alone. Someone took the time to ensure everything stayed in good shape and working the way it should. When you put your truck’s engine in our hands, that’s exactly the attention to detail we’ll provide, to keep it going strong as long as possible.

o matter your repair or maintenance needs, we’ve got you covered. For the best engine service shop in Fort Walton Beach, FL, call or stop by Holmes Auto Repair today.
