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 took my car in on Thursday. It was ready Saturday. They fixed the harmonic balancer on my 1982 Ford LTD. My car runs better than before. I highly recommend Skyline Automotive! They gave me a 2-year/24,000 mile warranty. My new place for all my automotive needs!

Prompt, reasonably priced excellent work.
Honest and knowledgeable. Does great work
The best experience ever
Definitely recommend - especially for European cars. Maciek at Skyline Automotive is a great mechanic - honest and professional. I purchased a Range Rover via an Internet auction and flew into Little Rock from South Carolina to take delivery of it. When I picked it up, it had a transmission leak and the transmission had also been overfilled by the prior owner. I needed to get on the road that day, and was lucky to have found Maciek through a referral by AAA. He quickly diagnosed and repaired the leak even fabricating a clamp that we needed to get me on the road that day. He checked the car over for us to ensure that we could make the 1000 mile drive. Our trip home was uneventful (mechanically speaking) and he even called me the next morning (Saturday) to check in to see if everything was OK. If I lived in Little Rock I would make this shop my regular mechanic.
Fixes the unfixable! Totally reliable and honest mechanic work.
This place is the only shop I trust anymore. I have dealt with a lot of shops in NLR and all of them have messed up my vehicles. These guys are not the cheapest but are worth every penny. They even redid the jerry-rigging by other shops. They kept the old parts so I could verify the issues and it runs great now. Even diagnosed codes my cheap reader and other shops couldn't. Highly recommended.
The owner of this went above and beyond to help me when he didn't have to. My truck ran out of gas right in his parking lot and he didn't hesitate to help me. First,he used two of his 10 gallon containers,2nd.he drove us to a store in his truck and helped me get it started,which is a diesel truck. 3rd. He pumped the air out of the lines and bleed them.
