Oil Change

Oil is one of the biggest parts of maintenance with your vehicle. Without the correct maintenance or overlooking your service you will decrease the life of your car. Most cars need about 5,000-7,000 miles between an oil change. It is especially important to get one once the season starts changing. Now that it is summer, it’s a great time to get your oil changed!

Air Filters

There are so many issues that come along with a clogged air filter. It can lower your gas mileage, horsepower, and it can cause the engine to stall. If you live in areas with a lot of construction you need to get your filter changed more often. A good rule of thumb is to change your air filter every 5000 to 7000 miles.


When your breaks start to either squeak, grind, or a light comes on, you need to get them looked at ASAP. Breaks are nothing to play around with. Left untreated, a faulty break pad could lead to death or serious injury.


Tires are one of the most important maintenance aspect of a car. When tires start to lose their thread, they could lose a grip on the road or they will pop. You need to get your tires rotated and changed whenever you start to notice certain signs. If you’re looking to get a new whip, come see us at Valley Car Group!
