Jimmie Johnson Chevrolet has some tips on how to best keep your Chevrolet engine and transmission at top performance. Your owner’s manual contains complete details on how to best maintain and repair your vehicle. It is very important to change the oil in your vehicle regularly. Clean oil lubricates the components, preventing engine failure. Be sure to keep all fluids in your engine at the correct level. The brake fluid, battery fluid, and transmission fluid all need to be checked from time to time, and replaced as needed. The transmission is also a very important part of your vehicle to maintain. Your transmission fluid lubricates the gears in both an automatic and manual transmission, and should be changed occasionally to keep the clutch and the transmission from failing. A suggested time to change your transmission fluid is around 50,000 miles or about 2 years. Your tire pressure does not seem like it would affect your engine, but the air pressure in your tire can greatly affect your gas mileage, not to mention ruin your tires. Our certified technicians will be able to advise on specific needs for your vehicle. The cooling system should be inspected routinely for any malfunctions. Your engine needs to breath, it is best to check your air filter at every oil change to make sure it is not clogged. A regular air filter replacement and a well functioning cooling system will help prevent your vehicle from overheating, which can eventually damage your engine. Finally, it is best to use genuine parts. Warranties may void if genuine parts are not used. Pay attention to the dash board, the gauges indicate if the engine is too hot, the oil pressure is too low, or if the check engine light is on.
