Regular rotation extends the life of your tires, saving you time and money in the long run. For rotation, each tire and wheel is removed from your vehicle and moved to a different position. This ensures that all of the tires wear evenly and last longer. If no period is specified in your owner's manual, the tires should be rotated every 6,000-8,000 miles.

Coolant Flush

The coolant liquid is known as antifreeze and the most commonly used type in automotive systems is ethylene glycol. It is mixed 50-50 with water and will resist freezing to -40 degrees F and will withstand temperatures up to 250 degrees F without boiling. It also contains rust inhibitors and lubricants. Newer longer lasting types of antifreeze are used in many late model cars.

NAPA Maintenance Schedule

The maintenance schedule in the owner's manual isn't always complete. Every car maker wants their car to be perceived as "low maintenance", hence 10,000 mile oil changes, 100,000 mile spark plug changes and "lifetime"coolant. It's not what is best for the vehicle but it looks good in the glove box on the showroom floor.
