Scheduled Maintenance 90,000 Mile Service
The 90,000-mile service on most vehicles is a major auto repair service, and in many ways is identical to the 30,000-mile service. The 90,000-mile service may be referred to as a tune-up. The 90,000-mile service is where you will see some of the fluids replaced, such as the brake fluid, engine coolant and transmission fluid, as well as spark plugs, air filters and the fuel filter. A comprehensive checklist of inspections may also be included. Each vehicle manufacturer may vary the actions performed so Orinda Motors will verify the requirements with the vehicle manufacturer’s website. For certain vehicles, it is important to have the timing belt inspected at this time, and possibly replaced along with the water pump.
A lot of people ask why they should bother with a 90,000-Mile Service. This is a major service that many car manufacturers recommend because it involves specific internal components that need to be replaced. Just like your body, when your car reaches the 90K-mile mark, it is starting to show its age. And if you don’t take good care of it, it will start to wear down; the performance will be compromised. Preventive maintenance studies show time and time again that when you take good care of your car, your car will take good care of you. So, be sure to provide major service for your vehicle at the 90,000-mile mark, or you could risk the equivalent of your car having a heart attack, which is engine failure.
