Preventive Maintenance

Taking care of small problems now can help you avoid big problems later. Preventive maintenance is an important part of owning a car. Let Lucas Tire & Auto Care handle all of you preventive maintenance.

  • Air Filter Replacement:Your engine needs air to run. Before the air gets to your engine, however, it needs to be cleaned to prevent small debris and dirt from getting inside. Make sure your air filter is clean.
  • Fuel Injection: Fuel injectors deliver fuel to the engine. Clean them regularly to prevent rough idling, decreased gas mileage, and a reduction in power.
  • Spring Checkup: During a spring checkup, your car is inspected to make sure it's ready for the hot summer months ahead. During this service, we'll check your battery (bad winters tend to shorten battery lifespans), see if you need to swap your winter tires, check your tire pressure, and give other important components an inspection to make sure you're good to go.
  • Winterization Checkup: If you've heard the phrase "winterizing your car," it refers to this service. Winter months and freezing temperatures can do a lot of damage on a vehicle. During a winterization checkup, we'll test your battery to determine it's chance of survival in the months ahead, see if you have snow tires installed, check the type of oil you have, and review other important components that could lead to trouble if left alone.
  • Mileage Service: To stay in warranty, most manufacturers require that you have your vehicle checked at different mileage intervals. Check out our more detailed preventive maintenance page to see popular intervals from 7,500 miles to 180,000 miles.
  • Wiper Blade Replacement: Is your windshield streaky even after you clean it? It might be time for new wiper blades. Let our staff help you determine if you need your wiper blades replaced.

    Lube & Oil Change

    When was the last time you had your car’s oil changed? Do you even know? If you don’t, it’s time for an oil change.

    Why Do I Need an Oil Change?

    Oil changes are pretty important. Did you know that you car’s oil:

    • Keeps All Engine Components Working Properly Together?
    • Draws Heat Away from Vehicle’s Combustion Chamber, Lowering Engine Temperature?
    • Prevents carbon and varnishes from building up in the engine?

    Oil Change FAQ’s

    Check your owner's manual for recommended oil change intervals. Every car is different. We can help you find the right maintenance schedule for your vehicle.

    Synthetic Oil vs. Conventional Oil

    Don't know what oil is best for your vehicle? Check out the differences between synthetic and conventional:

    • Synthetic Oil: Synthetic oil is designed to handle extreme temperatures and lasts longer than conventional oil. It's a great choice for reducing engine wear, and improving gas mileage on hard working engines.
    • Conventional Oil: Also known as regular oil, conventional oil is derived from petroleum. It’s less expensive than synthetic oil and a good fit if you don't drive far very often.

    If you think you need an oil change, or you’re not sure, schedule an appointment. Your car is counting on you.

    Steering & Suspension Service

    Your car’s steering and suspension system are responsible for providing a comfortable ride, and keeping you in control. Regular wear and tear breaks down your suspension system, and things like pot holes and off-road driving can break it down faster.

    When you bring your car to us for steering or suspension work, we’ll do a complete suspension inspection to see if anything needs attention.

    Wheel Alignments

    Alignments: More Than Just Driving Straight

    A four-wheel alignment reduces tire wear and straightens your vehicle, so you're not pulled to the left or right while driving. A wheel alignment is an important maintenance service that fixes the angle of your tires and wheels after pot holes and curb sides alter it.

    If your vehicle does go out of alignment, this can spell possible disaster for you or any driver. You could lose control of your vehicle, which is potentially very dangerous for you and others on the road.

    An alignment offers drivers numerous benefits, including:

    • Longer Lasting Tires
    • Minimizing Wear and Tear
    • Better Vehicle Handling and Performance
    • Safer Vehicle Operation

    Computer Diagnostics

    Modern vehicles use computers to monitor the performance of the engine and other components. When something isn't up to par, today's automobiles alert you with a warning light. While most are self explanatory, like "Low Oil," some aren't as telling. When your check engine light comes on, for example, it's easy to become frustrated. Come in for a computer diagnostic the next time something is wrong with your vehicle. 

    Stop by our auto repair shop in Chicago, IL for your engine diagnostic or other computer diagnostic. We'll tell you what's wrong and work with you on your next steps to fix it.

    Your car battery has a pretty important job. When you turn the key, the battery supplies the power to start the engine and keeps it running. It also charges the alternator so that you get power. If your battery does not have enough power, your vehicle won’t start. A bad battery can compromise your car’s entire electrical system.
