Does Regular Maintenance Save You Money?

Regular maintenance

You can sustain a good condition of your car with regular maintenance and it also prevents serious issues and saves you from heavy expenditure on your vehicle.


How Does Regular Maintenance Save Money?

Cost involved in maintaining a car is comparatively lower than the cost of dealing with serious repairs which occurs in the vehicle, due to lack of attention and ignoring simple things like oil change. It is really important to change your vehicle’s oil when required as lack of proper engine oil can wreak havoc on the car’s engine and you might have deal with some serious problems. Thus it is wise to schedule regular maintenance of your car and take the advice of professionals to increase the life span of your vehicles and save yourself from serious expenditure.

It is really important you get your car checked by the professional every once in a while to sustain a smooth driving experience and it also saves you from huge auto repair bills in the future. If you compare the repair expense of a damaged engine with the regular maintenance, then you will see that the regular maintenance is a wise choice. In addition to that a good maintained car runs effectively on the road and a damaged car can be also risky for you and others on the road.

  • Prevent repairs: When you perform a regular maintenance on your car, it is less likely that you face serious car failure. Belts cause some serious issues when it breaks and remember that seat belts are to save you from serious damage, if you ram into any obstacle. Lack of proper engine oil can provide you with a dead engine and you can imagine what kind of serious issues one might face, due to faulty breaks. In the end I recommend that it is better to get your car regular checked by the professional, because cost of regular maintenance is extremely lower than the serious issues which arise due to lack of proper maintenance.
  • Extend your vehicle’s lifespan:Buying new cars can be extremely expensive and many of you can’t also afford to buy an entire new car every once in a while. You can imagine, if your car has reached its limit of endurance and it is beyond any repairs can force you to finance a new vehicle and all the expenditure which comes along with that such as higher insurance premiums, interest including other expenses. I say it is totally in your hand to keep your car running like a new one for much longer period, if you perform regular maintenance on your car and save yourself from some unexpected high expenditure. You can then use all the money saved, to buy a new car when you want to and not out of pure necessity.
  • Find problems before they are serious:A tune up is the best option to find some normal problems and correct them, before it gets too serious to put you into high expenditure, performing regular tune up by professionals can easily identify issues like deteriorating seals and other issues that lead to expensive repairs. The same goes for fluid issues, which can lead you to the replacement of the transmission flush or an entire transmission of your car.

How Do Car Brakes Work?

car brakes

We all know the actual purpose of a car brake and also understand its importance, but any of you ever wonder how they actually operate? Here we have given some key features and information about the operation of car brakes and how it stops your car.

What Happens When You Hit the Brakes?

When you press your foot on the brake, it forces the lever to push a specific piston into a part which contains hydraulic fluid normally described as master cylinder. Then followed by the hydraulic cylinder other cylinder next to your brakes gets filled. In simple words once the pedal is pressed and then hydraulic pressure is sent to the other cylinders directly from master cylinder. The hydraulic braking circuit also employs pipes that connect the cylinders which contains hydraulic fluid.

Basically this system uses the force of your foot on the brake pedal to apply brakes and the car multiplies that force to accumulate enough force to apply brake. The brakes transmit this force to the tires with enough friction.

What are the Different Parts?

One of the most important part of your car is your car brakes, as it is the only thing which can stop your car from hitting into obstacles, so it is crucial that all parts involved in the process should be in excellent condition. We have given some information about the components involved in the car braking system.

  • Piston:It is basically a cylindrical plug attached to the rod on one end and closed on the other and the force is relayed throughthe piston to the rod.
  • Cylinders:The hole that contains pistons is the master cylinder, which is the part where system pressure is produced and task of the other cylinders is to generate movement. Wheel cylinders are used in drum brakes.
  • Caliper:This is the part which is involved with the disc brakes, it forms the cylinder containing piston and brakethe pods, which allows braking by acting on a rotating disc.
  • Brake Pads: These components normally cover the disc and clamps to reduce motion from each side. These takes force received from piston and converts that force into kinetic energy of the car to thermal energy using friction.
  • Brake Shoe: The brake shoe is normally used with drum brake system. This is the metal carrier which has the friction linings attached

Mobile Mechanics Review From Ty in Woodland Hills

Hi Robert,
Thanks again for the great service! Very pleased…
As promised, here is a testimonial you can use, either all or in part.
Thanks again!
I called WeGo2U Mobile Mechanics to replace a radiator in a Honda civic. (I had the parts already…I was attempting to do the repair myself but found it to be a bit above my skill level). I called wego2u and a mechanic was able to come to my house the following day (on Mother’s Day weekend, no less!)

He replaced the radiator to perfection and charged less for labor than my usual shop was going to charge, all without needing to tow the vehicle, or hassle with rides to the shop, or waiting while it was fixed. The mechanic was there at EXACTLY the time he promised (along with a heads-up call to say he was on his way).

I’m very happy with this service and I’m not sure I will ever take my car to a ‘regular’ shop again. I highly recommend giving it a try. Mobile mechanic service is a great idea, and these guys are honest and skilled mechanics. Thanks to wego2u…I will DEFINITELY be using their service again.

Mobile Mechanic Orange County fixes Powerstroke Diesel

Ford Powerstroke Mobile Mechanic Orange County Diesel Repair



The part in the picture below is the HPOP oil rail that sits on top of the injectors, which are computer controlled by a separate module called a FICM (Fuel Injection Control Module). The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) sends commands to the Injection Pressure Regulator (IPR) to modulate the amount of oil pressure in the rails that act on the injectors to force fuel into the cylinders at up 40,000 psi!

Mobile Mechanic says “Oil is the life blood, change it often!”

These trucks will not start if they are too low on oil, or if there are leaks in the HPOP system. Also maintenance is CRITICAL! Do oil changes every 5,000 miles religiously! Even if you use Synthetic oil, extended oil change intervals are NOT recommended.
Dirty oil damages the internal components and can greatly accelerate failure of the HPOP systems seals and IPR. Another common problem is the screen in the oil sump below the oil filter housing, the screen deteriorates and pieces of it get sucked into the HPOP damaging the pump and the IPR.
There are updated components to replace some of the common failure items, the right Mobile Mechanic can keep you up and running wherever you are, from south orange county, to Ventura, Malibu, Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park, Moorpark, Irvine, Anaheim, Huntington Beach, etc, yu get the idea, pretty much from south OC to the north through LA, Long Beach and along the 101 west into Ventura County.
Contact us for more information on how we can help you.
They are also susceptible to wiring problems, FICM failure, EGR cooler failure…
Ford Powerstrokes keep me busy!

Honda Pilot Maintenance Service

in response to a question about a 2006 Honda Pilot 3.5L v6 110K maintenance service ….

Warrantee is now over (100,000 mi. I have been told by one repair shop that I need the following:
new shocks
new struts
new brake fluid
radiator flush
new hoses
new thermostat
new spark plugs
clean valves of carbon
new freon in A/C

The estimate is close to $2000. Is there any way of finding a reasonable cost and wear guideline? I am not experiencing ANY problems with the vehicle and had it serviced religiously by Honda up to 100,000 miles and don’t know this shop that well. I will shop around but I would like to know what normal expectations of wear, relacement time and costs might be.


My answer:

It is very unlikely you need shocks, hoses and freon. unless the ac is not blowing cold it will not need to be serviced. Shocks last a long time and even though some shops “recommend” them the won’t need to be replace unless they are leaking or wearing out (tires will show signs of cupping and the car may “bounce” or “float” when hitting bumps)

nearly every late model car will need coolant and brake fluid changes every two or three years as a maintenance service and changing the thermostat at the same time is a good idea but not requires unless doing a “backflush”.

A de-carbon and fuel injector clean is a very good service to have done every 30-60k miles as a maintenance routine to remove carbon buildup in the injectors on on the backs of the valves and tops of the pistons. very few shops are doing a true fuel injection service which requires special equipment the is hooked up to the fuel system and runs the chemical through the injectors. Most are just doing a drip clean which introduces a chemical in the intake while the car is running and is only a partial service.

Spark plugs and timing belt should be changed around 100k unless they were already replaced, check your service records.

Contact me directly and I will be glad to give you a realistic and accurate estimate.
