Taking proper care of your car will ensure that your car operates at peak performance. Moreover, proper auto maintenance can help keep you safe from accidents relating to mechanical problems and potentially inconvenient breakdowns. Whether you drive your car once a week or all day long, every day, it's important to practice regular auto maintenance.
Auto maintenance is more than just taking your car to your local Lakewood service center for oil changes, but that's a good start. In addition, you have to have all the fluids in your car, including the transmission fluid, brake fluid, and power steering fluid, checked on a regular basis. At ACA Automotive, our service center in Long Beach serving the Lakewood area, fluid check is a part of our standard oil change.
