Recommended Service Schedule for Most Vehicles

Follow This Service Schedule to Keep Your Vehicle Well-maintained

Problems with your vehicle are often worrisome. Thankfully, you can easily prevent many breakdowns by getting certain components within your car fixed once you hit certain mile markers. At Valley Automall, we want to keep your vehicle running safely on the road for as long as possible. Here are a few car repairs you should have completed, listed by mileage:

  • 3,000 – 6,000 Miles: Oil Change
  • 5,000 – 6,000 Miles: Tire Rotation
  • 15,000 – 30,000 Miles: Air Filter
  • 24,000 Miles: Power Steering Fluid Change
  • 24,000 Miles: Brake Fluid Change
  • 30,000 Miles: Fuel Filter
  • 30,000 – 100,000 Miles: Spark Plugs
  • 40,000 – 80,000 Miles: Brake Pad Replacement
  • 50,000 – 60,000 Miles: Battery Replacement
  • 60,000 Miles: Brake Rotor Replacement
  • 60,000 Miles: Transmission Fluid Replacement
  • 60,000 – 100,00 Miles: Timing Belt Replacement
  • 60,000 – 100,000 Miles: Water Pump Replacement
  • 80,000 Miles: Car Hoses
  • 80,000 Miles: Shock & Strut Replacement

You’ll notice that some parts — such as spark plugs, timing belts and water pumps — have an approximate range of miles instead of a single-number average. These are typical manufacturer ranges that will vary by your driving style, the integrity of the part and your level of consistent car care. While we don’t expect every vehicle owner to have these repairs made exactly when the odometer hit a certain mileage mark, we do insist that all drivers monitor their cars’ mileage and schedule appointments for service when required.

At Valley Automall, we know the signs of worn or damaged components. We’re available to assess and provide car repairs for nearly every make, model and year of a vehicle. We can even help you schedule or receive reminders for service appointments so that you will always know when it’s time to have these areas of your car addressed.
