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 Our Customers Are Saying

Been going to Rick's for years. Great Service, Honest.

Mr. Dutine and his staff were knowledgeable and courteous during my visit. They got me back on the road quickly. I found them to be honest and helpful.

During an era of brickbats flying about, I would like to toss a bouquet of roses to Precision Transmission, owner Rick Duttine and son Rayn. On October 17, 2016 the battery on my 2002 Ford Explorer expired. I was fortunate that Precision Transmission was just across the street and willing to help in attempting to jump start my battery, however to no avail. Rick and Rayn were gracious enough to extend their hours of service while we traveled to/fro purchase a battery. Upon our return to their place of business Rayn was kind enough to install our new battery. I recommend without hesitation Precision Transmission to anyone requiring auto/transmission service.

I took my car to Rick for an issue, and was later notified that another issue had happened. Rick was very fair with pricing. I'm not very knowledgeable about cars, but Rick explained my issue in a way I could understand. I will definitely be taking my business there from now on. A job well done!

-Jake S.

Really glad I took my car here. Rick was very knowledgeable and took the time to accurately find out what was wrong with my car and fix it right the first time, which seems to be a rarity these days.


Rick surprised me with his knowledge of the electronics of the car system. I did not tell him electronics and electrical conrols is my profession. He explained it in a simple way for me to understand the problem and was dead on with the facts. He was just as sharp on the mechanics of the transmission, motor, and the car. He gave me options on how well I wanted the repair as in do you want cheap and not last long for a clunker or as something I wanted to keep and restore. It was a $2000 truck. Junker or one to restore. He also helped me find the problem with a 4 runner two other mechanics and Toyota could not diagnose. He is honest and very knowledgeable. He takes care of all my mechanical needs I am not fixing myself.
