Bundling Maintenance By Thinking Ahead

Bundling Maintenance By Thinking Ahead

Forward thinking can save customers an extra trip, secure future business and protect investments.

An air filter can protect the engine for 12 months or 12,000 miles. However, with some oil-change intervals lasting 7,000 or even 10,000 miles, the air filter may exceed its recommended interval before the next oil change.

If the filter exceeds the recommended interval, it can impact performance and fuel efficiency. Chances are your customer won’t know the last time the cabin air filter was replaced, or even if they have a cabin air filter.

It’s recommended to replace the cabin air filter every 12 months or 12,000 miles. Regular replacement of the cabin air filter will prevent the diminished performance of the HVAC system and health of the evaporator and heater cores.

For the occupants in the vehicle, regular replacement will keep out and capture inert allergens like mold and soot. Bundling air, oil and cabin air filters together can not only save the customer an extra trip to your shop, but it can protect their investment in their vehicle.

Choosing the Right Motor Oil

Learn why choosing the right motor oil is crucial for modern vehicles with turbocharging and direct injection technology.

For most people, purchasing a vehicle is the second largest investment they will ever make. Keeping up with the oil and filter changes based on the recommended service intervals is perhaps the most important thing they can do to protect their investment. Today's motor oils are far more complex than they were years ago when you poured the oil out of a can. So are today's vehicles. As vehicle manufacturers continue to look for ways to meet federal emissions and fuel economy standards, many OEMs have turned to technologies such as turbocharging and direct injection to squeeze more power and efficiency out of smaller displacement engines. While these engines have fewer cylinders than the mainstream vehicles of yesteryear, they also operate under higher pressures and temperatures compared to traditionally, naturally aspirated engines, and that creates additional demands for today's motor oil. That's why motor oil today is often blended to meet the needs of a specific manufacturer or even a specific engine.
