General Service Schedule

Keeping your car up and running doesn’t involve much guesswork, unless you lost or don’t have an owner’s manual. Fortunately, there’s a general guide you can follow to keep your car properly serviced. Here’s a general service schedule from us here at Hassett Pre-Owned so you can keep your car running at peak performance.

 

General Service Schedule - Fluid

Weekly

Drivers would do well to check their windshield washer fluid and engine oil levels weekly, if not more often. Make sure all lights are working, including the dashboard indicator lights. Check tire inflation and condition too.

Three Months/3,000 Miles

Every three months or 3,000 miles, make sure to check the oil, engine air filter, power steering fluid, automatic transmission fluid, and windshield washer fluid. Inspect the battery, cables, belts, hoses, and exhaust as well.

General Service Schedule - Oil

Six Months/6,000 Miles

In addition to the previously listed items, drivers should check their chassis lubrication every six months or 6,000 miles. Make sure to change the oil at this point if you haven’t already.

12 Months/12,000 Miles

Most vehicles are engineered for minimal attention which is why most items can go unchecked for one year or 12,000 miles. Make sure to check the wheel alignments, steering, suspension, coolant, brakes, and wiper blades.

Over caring for your car won’t hurt, but neglecting general service can lead to disaster.

How to Repair a Car Dent

Repair a Car DentRepairing a large car dent will require a trip to a repair shop like ours. But if the dent is very small, you can fix it yourself. With a few simple tools, you can fix dents on the cheap. Here are a few tried and true methods to repair a car dent.

  1. Specialty Kits – Probably one of the first things that catches your interest when researching how to fix a dent, specialty kits can be useful. While they have a shaky track record, most are relatively cheap which means you can still save money with a single purchase over a trip to the repair shop.
  2. Plunger – Arguably the most well-known method for removing dents, a sink plunger, also known as a cup plunger, will work on most small and medium-sized dents. Apply water to the plunger and the dent then push and pull. The suction will remove the dent.
  3. Hot Water – Plastic bumpers aren’t known for their flexibility and a dent can be hard to remove. To make popping the dent out easier, remove the bumper, pour boiling water on it, then push the dent out. The heat should make the plastic easier to maneuver.
