According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
I have had nothing but great service and excellent work done in a timely manner at SAP. They are always reasonable with parts/labor costs. Highly recommend!
SAP Automotive works on both my personal and work vehicles. Service is always prompt and professional. I would recommend this shop to anyone!
Had an unfortunate car problem that caused me to get to towed to SAP. This was my first experience with them and i will ABSOLUTELY plan on using them for future auto care. Service was fast and professional.The owner Shawn and all of the other employees were great to deal with. There was constant communication from them throughout the entire process. I was extremely happy with their overall costs as well. They took care of quite a few misc. repairs at a very reasonable cost.
They always do the work quickly and efficiently. When you walk in, they are all smiles and work towards helping you out. And if there is an issue with the work, their warranty has you covered!
Great business. Convenient and dependable.
SAP went out of their way to research cheaper parts for me when the parts from my car dealer were too high! I will definitely be going back.
I have used this automotive shop for years. They provide excellent customer service and work diligently to get me in and out in a timely manner. They go above and beyond to make sure I'm satisfied. I can't say enough about how awesome they are!
Took great care of me and my car. Very courteous - very upfront and honest with pricing. I'd recommend these guys for anything. Don't let the neighborhood intimidate you. These guys are good and honest! They also have a cat!
Have been going to SAP automotive since living in Canton the last few years. Honest folks who do good work, have never suggested more work done than needed. Would trust them!
They are so kind, helpful, and accommodating. I always go here because it is so conveniently located and Shakir is a great mechanic!
I was looking for a place to have my car serviced and found S.A.P Automotive online. I walked in and was greeted by your service technician Shakir. I explained to him the problem with the brakes on my car and he seemed very knowledgable with the issue. I brought and my car back on a different day for service and I'm very pleased with the work that Shakir did on my car. I now know where to come to have my car serviced. Thanks to Shakir and the S.A.P Automotive family.
Dependable and fair! We just moved to the area and I'm truly glad I found a place I feel comfortable taking my car to. Highly recommended!
I have been a loyal customer for years, if you're looking for down to earth people that care, about your needs and safety. This is the place. I will always direct family, friends, and possibly new customers to SAP automotive. Because they truly believe in customer first. And that's why, No matter the make or model I buy, I bring all my automobiles here to SAP automotive, because they have your back.
Great service and very professional!
