Here are some of the ways we can help you drive a little smarter.
Motor oil is the lifeblood of your engine. It picks up dirt, particles and other impurities and deposits them in the oil filter to keep your engine clean. Routine oil changes keep all the moving parts moving, and cut down on friction to cool the motor so your vehicle keeps running longer. Don’t forget to ask about FREE Roadside Assistance from Meineke with the purchase of any upgraded oil change!

Tires are like sneakers. If you put a few thousand miles on them, they’re going to get worn out. To help your tires last longer, make sure they’re at the right pressure and rotate them every 6,000-8,000 miles. We recommend checking the tread every 40,000 miles to see if it’s time for a new set.

The only thing better than a car that goes is a car that stops. Which is why we offer free brake inspections. Routine inspections keep your vehicle stopping safer, longer. How often you have to change your brakes depends on a lot of things: driving conditions, rotor thickness, quality of brake pads, and more. A routine brake inspection with every other oil change makes certain that your braking system is safe. If you wait too long between services, you might have to get your brake rotors machined or even replaced, which gets expensive. So stop in for routine brake check-ups before you can’t stop anymore.

All that car karaoke with your radio blasting wouldn’t happen without a strong battery. Here are some easy tips to help extend your battery life: clean off the grease and dirt when you wash your car, park in an insulated garage during hot and cold seasons, and make sure the battery is always properly secured in place. During every oil change, have your battery tested and make sure it’s putting out the power it needs to keep you on the road.
At every oil change, ensure your battery is putting out the power it needs to keep you on the road. Tip: park in an insulated garage during hot and cold seasons.
Catalytic converters use a combination of heat and specialty metals to convert carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons into water vapor and carbon dioxide, which are commonly found in our atmosphere. The rest of your exhaust system — resonators, mufflers, exhaust manifolds and pipes — help quiet and cool the engine. Every piece of an exhaust system is an important part of your vehicle and the environment.
Your car’s suspension system is part of the chassis, which is comprised of all the parts on the underbelly of your car (shocks, struts, coil & leaf springs, and more). All of these parts have been helping smooth out bumpy rides for centuries, starting with horse-drawn carriages. Routine inspections help to maintain these important suspension parts so that you can enjoy a smoother ride and avoid costly repairs down the road. Wheel alignments, for example, help your tires last longer, saving you from purchasing a new set too often.
If it weren’t for the CV axle, your tires wouldn’t go round and round. This axle is made up of two joints, both of which use torque from your transmission to move your wheels forward. These joints are a collection of bearings and cages that are protected by the CV boot. Regular inspections of the CV boot will ensure it is sealed so no dirt or grime gets in to wear down your joints, which will provide you with a smoother ride. Which is great, because nobody wants a car with arthritis.
Regular inspection of the CV boot will ensure it is seeled so no dirt or grime gets in to ear down the internal joints, providing a much smoother ride.
Keep your cool with regular A/C maintenance. Car A/C systems have been around since the 1930s, removing the humidity and cooling the interior of your car using three main parts: the compressor, condenser, and evaporator. With your windows up and A/C on, you can increase your highway fuel efficiency by at least 20 percent, which saves you time, money and breaking into a sweat halfway to your mother-in-law’s house.
