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.
Nice people, good work and fair prices.
Flextune is the only place I take my vehicles. They will not do unnecessary work, and they are significantly cheaper than any other shop I've been to, and they always provide quality service
I had some fits over my car and they were able to get me in quick at a very reasonable price, not to mention I am allowed to bring my own part for them to work on the car. Friendly staff, and I now have no issue with my car thanks to their quality service.
Honest service that understands you're not made of money. Super fast. Just got another car that needs work and I'm not chancing it with another shop after the service I received here.
Mike got me in one evening at 5:15 to replace my alternator. It was fixed in less than an hour and cheaper (and better quality) than any place I had found or experienced in the past. I will definitely be back. THANK YOU.
Flextune...I have been doing business with this group for years. They don't play games. They do the best work and educate you on issue. They have always been professional and respectful. I now drive two hours for them to work on my vehicle because they are dependable and do quality work. Will never let any other business work on my vehicles. Mike and the crew are great.
Flextune is a great place. I own several cars for my company and they keep me running! Love these guys they will take care of you for sure. Mike always gives you options and is very trust worthy not to do things that don't need done! Been with them for 10 plus years!
We've been taking our cars to Flextune for about 10 years and have never had a bad experience. It's so nice to have an auto mechanic we fully trust to service our vehicles!
Flextune is hands down the best mechanic in Bloomington. Routinely MUCH less expensive than anywhere else I've gone, and they're great about telling you what actually needs fixed and what you can wait on. They're fast and friendly, and not condescending. Absolutely no complaints. The distance makes it a little difficult to get out there - not really bike-able or bus-able. However, I will gladly pay $30 in cab fare in order to save $350 on a repair.
Mike & mechanics are the best I've ever seen...a problem that plagued me for 3 yrs. Where the others guys failed, these guys were persistent, knowledgeable and reasonably priced. They came highly recommended from the manager at O'Reilly Auto parts.And most importantly, NOW my car doesn't die in traffic, randomly.
I called them around noon. Mike said I could come in to have my brakes checked immediately. Mike gave me a reasonable estimate to repair the front breaks, including replacing the rotors... Which I was shocked to have ruined. They were able to give me a ride to where I needed to be, did the work, and picked me up so I could get my car. Time from initial call to paying the *reasonable* bill: 4 hours. Unbelievable! Plus, the guy who drove me plus worked on my car, Rich, was friendly and informative, too. I would recommend this shop to anyone. Thank you, gentlemen, I now won't cringe at the thought of needing to call a mechanic!
Flex Tune offers "cheaper in the country" pricing while delivering on expert diagnosis and mechanics. I have brought my vehicle in on several occasions and they have always been able to get to my car in a timely basis and fixed it for a reasonable price.
