According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
I have been going here for 25 years, and I have always received good service from Mark and his mechanics. I will continue to use Baughman as long as I live in the area and my kids do as well. Mark and crew are very honest and trustworthy to use.
These guys do great work in a timely, professional manner. I highly recommend them.
Car repair done right and honestly.
Good honest mechanic.
Probably one of the best mechanics I and my family have used. We had a tried and trusted mechanic for years until he retired. We then bounced around to recommended shops, which needless to say didn't retain our business. Mark and his crew are straightforward and upfront. There has never been a "surprise problem". If there is anything that is a "surprise" they always call with the diagnosis before they proceed. To me this is how it should be, no Mickey Mouse jobs or surprise charges on your bill. Mark and his fellows are straight up good fellas.
Always amazing work....very friendly...I tell all my friends about this place near or far...it worth it.
Great service and honest prices. Wouldn't take my car anywhere else. Mark and his crew are the best!
We have been impressed with the quality & efficiency of Mark's work for 20 years. It's gratifying to find honest & effective technicians for today's complex vehicles.
Day before I was taking my 2010 Ford Escape for an oil change the driver's side rear window motor died and left the window in the open position. When I got to Mark's on Friday am, he said he would check around for a window motor. He called me right away and installed the motor. Also changed oil and replaced leaking rear shocks. Thanks Mark for getting the job done in one day. Dealer would have kept the truck till next week.
I took my 2004 F-150 with 200k miles in for a misfire. Mark said he would check it over with his computer. He then explained three different options. Get you back on the road (cheap). His recommendation (mid range). And he added a third option after talking with me about how long I wanted to keep the truck (expensive). Because I wanted to keep the truck another couple of years he suggested a full tuneup because it would save me $400 in the long run. Thanks Mark.
I always take my personal and company vehicles here. They do good work and are honest. They have always been able to troubleshoot and get the work done quickly at a fair price. I highly recommend.
