PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments.
  • Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

What People Say About Us

Greenbrier
  • , 04/27/2022

    We just wanted to thank the crew at Barkley's for helping us sort out our battery problem after we found ourselves stranded in Greenbrier. After waiting an hour for our road assistance that never showed up, I walked to Barkley's shop. The service tech stopped what he was doing to give me a ride back to my car and jump started the battery. I was able to drive back to the shop and they replaced the battery while I waited. It took less than thirty minutes from the time I walked through the door until I was back on the road again. Wonderful people that went out of their way to help two travelers from out-of-state.

    I wish more businesses were as prompt, professional and kind as these folks! I will go back and will recommend them every chance I get!

    When our daughter's car wouldn't start in Conway while in college at UCA, everyone was great to help her right away and get her back on the road. I cannot say enough good things about the way they treated her and us being so far away from her and pretty much helpless! Thank you all again from a concerned mom!

    Best place in Greenbrier to have work done. Took my truck in and asked them to do a bumper to bumper inspection and tell me what it needed. They gave me a list of things that needed to be done immediately and another of things that could be done at a later time. They were flexible with my time and got the work done on schedule. Their prices were fantastic and their entire crew was extremely professional.
