30,000 60,000 90,000 Mile Tune Up

30,000 60,000 90,000 Mile Tune Up

Is it time for your 30,000 60,000 90,000 Mile Tune Up? If so, then it is time to bring your vehicle into Paradise Auto & Truck Center in San Marcos where Charlie Marabella will personally help you with all your automotive needs. One of the most important things you can do for your car to keep your vehicle running is to keep the fluids clean by changing them on a regular basis. The engine is the heart of your vehicle and the fluids are the blood, so changing the oil based on the manufactures recommendations is probably the single most important thing you should do. However, there is no standard interval to change the oil for all vehicles. Be sure to have your cars and trucks serviced every 15,000 miles. The important milestones are 30k, 45k, 60k, 75k, 90k and 105k miles. Replace the worn wiper blades and check the wiper blade fluid levels. Flush the radiator if it has been more than 30,000 miles, otherwise top off with coolant. Hot and cold temperatures tend to tighten and loosen hoses, belts and clamps. Be sure to have them checked out at Paradise Auto & Truck Center in San Marcos. Change the Oil and Oil Filter. Paradise Auto & Truck Center is still offering the Lowest Price Oil Change in Town at only $12.00 for an oil change plus disposal fee when you purchase three at a time. Inspect the lights and the bulbs to ensure proper visibility on the road. Check the condition of the tires… Our auto mechanics are ASE Certified and are trained to work on your car or truck....
Local auto repair vs. dealer pricing

Local auto repair vs. dealer pricing

Local auto repair vs. dealer pricing What is the difference between bringing your car or truck back to the dealer versus bringing your car or truck to Paradise Auto and Truck Center? They both provide complete auto and truck service. They both provide a warranty on all their replacement parts. Both are very nice and friendly, so what’s the real difference? Time and Money! If you value time and money, then Paradise Auto & Truck Center is your automotive repair shop. Their fast friendly service is what they are known for. They are Napa Auto Parts certified, which means Charlie has the option of going with a high quality OEM part from Napa auto parts or he has the option of going with a part manufactured by your car or truck manufacturer. So what is an OEM part anyways? Good question! OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacture. Here is a perfect example of an everyday situation… A customer drives in and needs brakes and an alignment for a 2010 Toyota® Camry. If you bring your car into Toyota®, they will probably replace the brakes with Toyota® brakes and give your car an alignment. When you bring your car into Charlie at Paradise Auto & Truck Center, we have the ability to get Toyota® brakes from Toyota® or a quality part from Napa Auto Parts, which may be cheaper than going to the dealer....

At Paradise Auto and Truck Center in San Marcos, we service all makes and models of foreign and domestic cars and trucks and that includes diesel engines! So what should I do to my car or truck before I take that Summer road trip? #1. Check all the fluid levels, including, getting an oil change and topping off all other fluids. Engine oil Transmission fluid Gasoline Antifreeze/coolant Radiator coolant Brake fluid Windshield washer fluid Power steering fluid #2. Check the tires for proper tread and proper air pressure in the tires. I like to ride with a little extra tire pressure than recommended for better gas mileage. #3. Check the wiper blades. During a road trip in the summer, it is common to encounter a late Summer’s afternoon storm. #4. Check the hoses and Belts. Be sure that the belts and hoses are tight. #5. Lights – it might seem like a trivial thing, but check all the lights & blinkers to ensure they are working properly. #6. Brakes – You don’t want to be on a trip and have your brakes start squeeking, so get them checked out before you go on your trip. #7.
