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 came here because my car could not pass the state emissions test and was rejected 3 times because the monitors were not ready. My auto dealer could not help. Thanks to Vino, the manager, my car finally passed today and I am very relieved and glad. Vino was very quick, courteous, and professional. He knew exactly how to pass the test, while the other mechanics elsewhere did not know. He didn't charge me either. I am happy to recommend Delgado's for any emissions work. I will return if I need repairs. Five Stars.
Delgado's Auto is a family run business that will do everything and anything they can to help you. Their staff and technicians truly go above and beyond, something that is hard to find in a big city like Chicago! Don't waste your time taking your car anywhere other than here, you won't regret it.
Brought my Lexus here Sunday morning at 8AM and got it back the same Sunday at 3PM for a bunch of electrical issues and catalytic converters - Amazing! Car drives like it's brand new and passed emissions. Def not ever taking my car anywhere else - Professionals!
I take my car here and every time they do a very good job - thank you!
Fair prices, good fast service, and reliable.
Awesome professional service. Also appreciated not being oversold on extras that I don't need. one of the fastest/best oil change experiences I've had. Will be back!
I've been going there for the past year and have gotten great service, fair pricing, and quality work. Highly recommended!!
Amazing customer service! I would give them more stars if I could! What could have been a catastrophe for me as I was driving north on Western Avenue and my car bottomed out- totally undriveable- I was lucky to land right by Delgado's Auto Service. The employees were incredibly kind to me (and my sleeping infant in the back seat), they had my car serviced and on my way within 30 minutes!! Huge thanks to Enrique, who invited me in to the garage room to see how they had fixed my car while it was launched in the air. I got to see the work they did for myself- and see my car from underneath- I truly appreciated how they respectfully explained the work. I highly recommend Delgado's for your brake and inspection needs!
My car has been making a horrible rattling sound for awhile. I took it to Delgados and had excellent service! They were able to look at my car, diagnose the problem, (rattling heat shield) and fix it right away. The best part-- they didn't even charge me! When I took my car to the Honda dealership, they tried to charge me $40 to do the same thing. Highly satisfied customer! I will be back! Would recommend this place to everyone.
I pulled into Delgado's 10 minutes before closing time last Saturday due to a sudden problem. The issue ended up being minor but the car was not drivable. They knew exactly what was wrong and how to fix it. I was out of there in less than 20 minutes. I was pleasantly surprised that they stayed late to get me back on the road. If not for Delgado's, my entire weekend plans would have had to change. I will definitely go back for any future repairs. Very impressed with their level of service.
I've been to many auto repair shops in my lifetime and I must say, this is the best. I went in for squeaky brakes. They replaced the brake pads, rotors, synthetic oil change, topped off all fluids and replaced all wiper blades for $400. My car feels and sounds better than it has for a while. There was no upsell for additional maintenance. If I had gone to a dealer they would have sold me the $2500 (72000 mile) maintenance deal. Here they tell you what is necessary now and what you should get done in the near future. I dropped my car off around 8am and it was finished around 1pm. Why go anywhere else?
Delgados gives great service. I've now been there twice, and during each visit the service was fast, and the prices were very honest. I will definitely return there for all of my future needs! Thanks!
