PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

Courtesy of the Automotive Service Association

The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments.
  • Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I highly recommend Pro Tune Plus based on my experience. I was driving from Virginia to Saskatchewan in January and my AWD system in my volvo xc 70 failed. I was stuck in a strange town and unsure of where to take my car. Both AAA and the staff at the Marriott Residence Inn seemed to think Pro Tune Plus would be decent. I was more than impressed with their service and the options offered in getting me back on the road. They did a great job; show impeccable attention to detail; and understood my need to get my car fixed and back to grad school quickly and cheaply. Fixing a Volvo in an area where there aren't alot of Volvos was scary for me but it worked out great!


-Rob P.

Excellent service! I went here to get my car checked before I moved back home and it was one of the best car services I've ever had. Joe was affable, professional, and efficient in his work. It didn't take long for the service to be finished, and he even put on some zip ties on the front of my ripped bumper to prevent it from getting damaged on the long ride home-for free! If you want quality service that's fast and professional, I highly recommend Pro Tune Plus.


-Holly B.

Absolutely incredible. Pro Tune Plus came through hard for us on our travels. We broke down in ND, are from Canada and Joe, Pat, Mayson and Nathan were the real MVP's who got us fixed up and back on the road in no time at all. Each one of them were SO compassionate, empathetic and did everything in their power to help myself and my friend get back on the road as quickly and safely as possible. Everything from personally driving us around town, and personally offering up a place for us to stay. Their efficiency and mechanic work is second to none and I would recommend ANYONE to not only get their vehicle fixed by Pro Tune Plus but to also even just have the pleasure of meeting these incredibly kind people. It was the best of a crappy situation to have had them come along our path. They give me faith in humanity and I from the bottom of my heart can't even put into words how wonderful of a business Pro Tune Plus is. Number one in North Dakota by a long stretch.


-Rebecca C.

Saved my Duck Hunt! Great people. Accommodated my two dogs while they fixed my van. Got me back on the road and had no further problems. I highly recommend this group for any travelers with car or truck problems.


-Rick T.

Service was awesome and if you haven't been here I recommend giving them a try. They were courteous and very professional. They diagnosed the problem and fixed it right the first time every time I have been here.


-Jason S.

Joe and the staff were fantastic! We were on a road trip on a time schedule and got to the shop later in the day. Without asking, Joe stayed an extra 45 minutes after hours so that we could continue with our trip. We even got to play some old school NES as we waited.


-Austin B.

What a great place! Got me in so fast. Was happy with all the work done for me. Such nice guys to know. Highly Recommend them.
