30/60/90K Mileage Maintenance
As time goes by, various auto repair and maintenance needs come up at different intervals. Most manufacturers recommend car maintenance in intervals of 30,000 miles. This is the 30/60/90K mile schedule (issued by the manufacturers to car owners). Trust the experts at Progressive Automotive & Tire to keep you on schedule, and help you preserve the condition of the vehicle, optimize its performance, and increase its resale value. The 30/60/90K service includes the following:
- Fluid replacements
- Oil and Filter changes
- Tire rotation, spin balance, and pressure adjustments
- Inspection of parts and systems - gears, tires, brake pads, belts, hoses, etc.
- With higher mileage: spark plugs, belts, timing belts when applicable
A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Progressive Automotive & Tire for all your vehicle's repair needs.
You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Progressive Automotive & Tire today. The mechanics at Progressive Automotive & Tire will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.
Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Progressive Automotive & Tire, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give our Stafford location a call at 540-659-5600, reach our Fredericksburg location at 540-654-5383, or stop by one of the shops for our expert assistance.
Factory Recommended Service/Maintenance
Automotive and auto parts come with a factory recommended service and maintenance schedule. The manufacturer will tell you how often to service or replace an auto part. At Progressive Automotive & Tire, we offer factory recommended service/maintenance. Our highly skilled auto mechanics offer comprehensive knowledge and experience. At Progressive Automotive & Tire, all your factory recommended service/maintenance needs are handled with the latest diagnostic equipment. Remember, we work on all American and imported vehicles (either diesel or gas engines).
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Progressive Automotive & Tire for all your vehicle's repair needs.
You not only have to get the hoses replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Progressive Automotive & Tire today. The mechanics at Progressive Automotive & Tire will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.
Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to one of Progressive Automotive & Tire's two convenient locations in Stafford and Fredericksburg.
Billy and Marcy have been servicing our vehicles for years. I'm 35 and we started going there before I could drive. This is an honest shop that has never done us wrong. Pricing is as affordable as auto repair can be for a stand alone shop with outstanding customer service. Do not hesitate to use these folks to guide you through any auto repair.William N.
As always, my experience was 100% satisfying. The same work was done that the dealer wanted THREE TIMES the amount to do, and I know from years of experience with Progressive Automotive that the work was done right. My go-to auto shop for everything I need. Thanks folks.Ted P.
Progressive Automotive is consistently, friendly, professional, and helpful. I appreciate that they are honest and can be trusted to do what needs to be done, without tacking on additional unneeded repairs. I go to them because they are a trustworthy business.Sabin M.
