MILFORD, Ohio, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Preventative maintenance is the number one thing car owners can do to extend the life of their vehicles. Just about any expert worth listening to will say that following a car's factory prescribed maintenance schedule is the best way to extend the life of a car. The service department at Mike Castrucci Ford of Milford has a well qualified team of service technicians to handle almost any problem that can come up. When looking for car service in Cincinnati it is important to choose a highly trained team that has the experience to diagnose any problem. 


It should not be a big secret that a vehicles engine is made up of thousands and thousands of moving metal parts that are assembled within very tight tolerances. During the operation of the engine there is a tremendous amount of heat that is built up as well as the risk of friction from the metal parts rubbing together. The oil in a vehicle's engine provides a barrier between the parts and helps dissipate the heat. That is why it is important to keep the oil in an engine fresh through oil changes.

The old gold standard for oil changes has always been around 3,000 miles. However, with improvements in engine technology and oil technology that limit can likely be pushed up by a few miles. Again, the technicians at Mike Castrucci Ford of Milford say that following the factory protocol is what should be done.

Tires are another very important part of the safe operation of a car. They literally are where the rubber meets the road. Tires provide grip and the proper friction necessary to stop the vehicle when the brake is applied. However, since most people don't pay attention to their tires until something goes wrong it is important to remember to keep an eye on them. By making sure that tires are properly inflated at all times and that they are rotated at the proper intervals. This will greatly increase the life of the tires and make the operation of the vehicle much safer.
