PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments.
  • Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

What People Say About Us


  • -Chuck M.

    Wow! Took my 2nd Gen 4runner to A-Z Transmission and Exhaust to have my transmission inspected - I thought it was slipping. They found nothing wrong. Now they could have done a bunch of stuff as I had expected they would have to do, and charged me hundreds, even thousands. But they changed the oil, and cleaned the screen as I had requested. But in addition, they painted the oil pan to inhibit the rust! They did all of this at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend A-Z Transmission and Exhaust.


  • -Randy G.

    My son bought an Isuzu Rodeo from these guys. It came with a one year warranty on the transmission. When it started having trouble, Bill took care of it no questions asked. Nice man who honors his word. Nice to see that these days.

    A-Z transmission stands by their work and does their very best to accommodate the needs of their customers. Not many people actually understand what goes into performing the service they provide, but for those who will listen, they will take the time to explain your unique situation at hand.
