Maintenance Important

It is very important that you have your vehicle regularly maintained by a qualified technician. You should always have a maintenance schedule in place to ensure your vehicle is at its peak performance and durability.

It is important to get the very best fuel economy out of your vehicle whether it be your personal every day car or a fleet vehicle that you put a few thousand miles a week on. Good fuel economy can save you thousands of dollars in a year’s time just by simply setting a maintenance plan and following it thru. If you find yourself strapped for time then let the professionals at Ultimate Fleet Repair do it for you. With our maintenance software, we can simply track your next service and schedule you in advance. We will even pick up and deliver your vehicles for free.

Here are few of the routine service that should be performed on a regular basis:

  • Oil Change
    Should be performed every 3,000-5,000 miles if it is a gas engine. Diesels very between 5,000-10,000 miles depending on the oil capacity.
  • Tune-Ups
    Should be done around 90,000-100,000 miles. Performing this service will increase fuel economy.
  • Transmission Service
    Should be performed at least every 30,000 miles. This will ensure that your transmission is functioning properly and will help eliminate costly transmission failures.
  • A/C Service
    should be performed at least once a year, preferably before the hot summer months. Having a/c is something most people can’t live without.
  • Radiator Service
    Should be done every 60,000 miles to keep your antifreeze clean and free of sludge. Also washing out your radiator and a/c condenser should be done twice a year to keep air flowing freely thru them.
  • Vehicle Inspection
    Needs to be done with every oil change to catch and prevent costly repairs down the road.

View Scheduled Maintenance

All brands, makes, and models require scheduled maintenance intervals. Depending on the type of fluids your vehicles take, whether it is synthetic oils or regular oils you need to make sure you are performing the required maintenance at the manufactures set intervals. One of the main reasons for doing this is to prevent in voiding your warranty if you still have a warranty on your vehicle. If you have something like a transmission fail prematurely and you are going after warranty, most of the time the dealer or manufacturer wants to see records, receipts and maintenance schedule for your vehicle. Without that info the dealer or manufacturer can and most of the time will denied the claim and you will be responsible for paying that hefty bill.

To view your specific vehicles scheduled maintenance plan, sometimes you can find it in your owner’s manual, or look it up on the internet or just call or e-mail us and we can tell you exactly what is due on your vehicle and save you headaches, time and money

Fleet Vehicle care tutorials:

Lesson 1

Daily Inspection

Perform and everyday inspection. Walk around the vehicle and visually inspect tires, lug nuts, and overall appearance of vehicle. Make sure none of the tires look low or leaking air. Make sure your lug nuts are all still there and tight. Look for any obvious leaks or parts touching the ground or loose.

Lesson 2

Fluid Top Offs

Look under hood and check fluid levels and inspect hoses and belts to make sure nothing is leaking or missing. Top off oil and other fluids as necessary.

Lesson 3

Check the Lights

Check lights. Make sure all your required lights are working properly and nothing is burnt out. Dot inspectors could be waiting down the road and if they see a headlight out it will be the perfect opportunity for them to pull you over and check you out

Lesson 4

Inspect the Interior

Perform and interior vehicle check and ensure you have all the appropriate safety equipment. If your vehicle meets DOT requirements you want to make sure your fire extinguisher is up to standards and charged, triangles or flares are in place. Also perform the interior vehicle check by starting vehicle and checking gages, wipers, making sure no check engine lights come on and listen to how the vehicle sounds (engine noise).
