Factory Recommended Service/Maintenance
Automotive and auto parts come with a factory recommended service and maintenance schedule. The manufacturer will tell you how often to service or replace an auto part. At Avenue Tire & Service, we offer factory recommended service/maintenance. Our highly skilled auto mechanics offer comprehensive knowledge and experience. At Avenue Tire & Service, all your factory recommended service/maintenance needs are handled with the latest diagnostic equipment. Remember, we work on all American and imported vehicles (either diesel or gas engines).

30/60/90K Mileage Maintenance
As time goes by, various auto repair and maintenance needs come up at different intervals. Most manufacturers recommend car maintenance in intervals of 30,000 miles. This is the 30/60/90K mile schedule (issued by the manufacturers to car owners). Trust the experts at Avenue Tire & Service to keep you on schedule, and help you preserve the condition of the vehicle, optimize its performance, and increase its resale value. The 30/60/90K service includes the following:

  • Fluid replacements
  • Oil and Filter changes
  • Tire rotation, spin balance, and pressure adjustments
  • Inspection of parts and systems - gears, tires, brake pads, belts, hoses, etc.
  • With higher mileage: spark plugs, belts, timing belts when applicable

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Avenue Tire & Service in Ludington, MI 49431.

Hoses
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Avenue Tire & Service for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the hoses replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Avenue Tire & Service today. The mechanics at Avenue Tire & Service will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

Belts
A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Avenue Tire & Service for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Avenue Tire & Service today. The mechanics at Avenue Tire & Service will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

  • I am very happy with my service here. What ever problem I have with my vehicle John or Johnny always seem to know the problem and will explain the repairs that I need. Also they can tell me of upcoming possible repairs that I may need. They are very patient with their customers and they go the extra mile. Hard to find good service like that. I recommend this local shop to anyone.

  • The Ludington Avenue Tire & Service shop has maintained my 15 year old 170,000 mile Ford for the last 6 years. This appointment was a great example of their trusted service: I thought I had transmission issues and had asked for a flush and screen change at $170. They test drove the vehicle and found the engine was miss firing and cancelled the transmission work, Made time for hood lock repair and an oil change. All well performed and reasonably priced. I can't recommend this location any higher!
