According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
Let me start by saying that I'm from the Motor City, so my car means more to me than it may someone who wasn't raised in a town where automobiles represent the livelihood of their entire city. When something goes wrong, I take it to heart, so it was important to me to find somewhere I trust. My experience with Mark was awesome. He helped me in a pinch, and was honest, careful, thorough, and -- as icing on the top! -- shook my hand and made me feel like I was back home in the midwest! I recommend Tony's 100%.
Came in after work today to get my brake light fixed (wasn't working and had tried everything to my knowledge to fix it). There were several cars being worked on but the man up front told me to pull my car around to see if they could fix it or would need more time. Did so and after about 15 minute wait my light was working! Not only had they solved my problem but they didn't charge me at all for taken up their time! All the employees are super respectful and polite and very accommodating! Always recommend this place when you need to be taken care of without being taken for a ride. So sorry I didn't get any names but y'all rock!
I needed some repairs done, in order to pass the smog test. I waited until the last minute, of course! Edwin and Mark rearranged their busy schedule to squeeze me in. They also took care of some other mechanical issues, on the vehicle. I can't thank them enough. Excellent service, fair prices and great guys to deal with.
Edwin and his crew are the best in business....a true one stop shop! They do IT ALL! Customer for life! I refer all my friends to them.
Edwin and his crew have been servicing my car for several years now. They are an honest establishment and I've always felt well taken care of and never taken advantage of!!
I've followed Edwin through all the shops he's worked at or managed over the years. So happy he has his own place now. I usually do my own mechanic work, but when I do take my car in, he is the only person I know I can trust 100%. All my family and friends go to him too.
Edwin is the man! Great crew of honest experts! I will never go to another mechanic!
Tony's is the best shop on this side of town! Edwin, George, and everyone else there are super helpful and will answer all your questions. Just as importantly, their quality of work is excellent. So far I've had them replace an engine mount and a clutch, plus some minor stuff like fluid and filter changes. They will have my business as long as I'm living in LA.
I went here with a 68 Pontiac GTO that needed work complete asap (issues starting, fuel line leak, various electrical issues). Edwin had the car ready the next day and fixed all the issues and explained thoroughly what had to be done, plus got it all done at a very modest price! He even had a shuttle to pick me up and drop me off once the vehicle was ready. Very happy with his service!
