What is the Difference Between
Maintenance and Repair
Repairs are services that are required or necessary when something on your vehicle is not working properly or may have worn to the point where a replacement is required to maintain the performance of your vehicle.
Maintenance is the routinely scheduled services, inspections and part replacements that your vehicle manufacturer recommends based on the age or mileage of your vehicle.
The schedule for performing these maintenance services varies from vehicle to vehicle. You will find the schedule for your vehicle in your owner’s manual. Following this schedule is the best way to make sure your vehicle is performing as it should.
For your engine to maintain peak performance, it has one very important liquid to thank: your engine oil. Thankfully, preserving your engine’s life is a cinch when you have the experience of our Tires Plus oil change experts and a full line of synthetic blend and full synthetic oil services. With all the right oil change options, we have the motor oils that meet your vehicle’s needs—and your budget. With proper oil change maintenance you can keep cruising today, tomorrow and for many thousands of miles to come.
Keeping your engine running at peak performance wouldn’t be possible without a fresh oil change. It’s your engine’s lifeblood, and if you don’t change it on a regular basis, it can fast become an ugly, engine damaging mess. As motor oil ages, it wears out and becomes infected with contaminants. Leave that dirty motor oil in your system, and it will begin to thicken, losing its luster and ability to protect your engine. The result? Engine wear and damage, reduced performance and even expensive repairs. Nobody wants that. That’s why we’re here: to help you keep your ride properly maintained and your engine protected with the right engine oil, expert service and advice.
