Auto Maintenance in San Antonio, TX

Are you taking good care of your car? At Santone Automotive, we keep your vehicle running for many miles by providing auto maintenance in San Antonio, TX. It's important to give your car a checkup to determine potential problems and to ensure it is "healthy." Even though things fall apart eventually—and we're here to fix the problem when it happens—you can effectively prolong the life of your car by maintaining it.

In fact, many vehicle problems, both minor and major, can be avoided by properly maintaining your car or truck. Our skilled and ASE-certified mechanics identify problems early to prevent things like engine knocking, overheating, and even vehicle breakdown. Auto maintenance is the key to your car's longevity. When providing this service, we check many systems of your vehicle to ensure everything is operating as it should.

When Should You Get Oil Changes?

The sooner the better! That doesn't mean you should bring your car in for an oil change every week; however, we strongly advise every three months or 3,000 miles—whichever comes first. Good oil equals excellent engine operation. That's because old oil contains sludge that gunks up your pistons and valves. The sludge causes more friction that actually damages engine components.

Even though some manufacturers of newer cars suggest getting an oil change every 7,500 miles, we are more old-fashioned in our beliefs. Don't take chances, but get regular oil changes at our auto repair shop. By doing so, you'll make sure your car's engine is properly lubricated and has a longer life.

Tune-Ups Improve Engine Efficiency

If things are riding rough when you're driving your car, bring it to our shop for tune-ups. Your vehicle's engine may be stalling, knocking, or even having shifting problems. Whatever the issue, our mechanics can determine the issue. Many times, a simple tune-up ensures a smoother-running engine again. We work on cars of all makes and models. Save your engine and enjoy a smooth ride again by allowing us to tune up your vehicle. The schedule for auto tune-ups varies depending on your car's make, model, and mileage. Generally, it's advisable to visit us for an auto tune-up every 30,000 miles or so. Specific tune-up schedules are listed in your owner's manual. Contact out mechanics for assistance in determining the right time to get your car tuned up.

Accurate Auto Tune-Ups

Listen to your car. It may be trying to tell you something? Sometimes you can tell when you need a tune-up. Your engine light is flashing. The car has trouble starting. It shuts off while idling. These are all signs that it needs a tune-up. So, don't fret when you have a blinking check engine light. It doesn't always mean the worst. Allow us to provide a complete diagnostic to determine if your car needs repair work or simply an auto tune-up. We have the proper tools and advanced equipment to ensure an accurate job.
