Petaluma 60K Service

Much like a 30k service, the 60k service is a major routine maintenance check. The technician will repeat all services performed up to this time, possibly adding a few extra services depending on your vehicle and based on the manufacturer’s recommendations. You should consider investing in a copy of your vehicle’s repair manual if you do not already own one. They are relatively cheap and well worth the cost. With the repair manual, you can see exactly what services your car manufacturer recommends, and schedule your services with a repair shop accordingly. In addition, having this knowledge helps you keep the service station honest because you know what they should and should not do.

During a 60k service check, the shop technician will do the following:

Perform an oil change

Rotate tires if needed

Replace the air filter if needed

Inspect the brake system for damage and wear

Check tire pressure

Check all fluids and top them off if needed

Check for leaks in all areas under the car

Perform a tune-up

Inspect all the small things around the vehicle, such as wipers, light bulbs, the horn, etc.

More in-depth servicing of certain parts may be required at this checkup as well:

Replacing transmission fluid and filter

Replacing brake pads and either brake rotors or brake shoes (or both depending on your vehicle)

Replacing tires, if they are too badly worn and unsafe

Replacing spark plug wires and/or spark plugs
