he 20,000 mile service is a minor service.
This service generally involves an oil and filter change , tire rotation
safety inspection. While changing the oil, the mechanic will be performing
visual inspections of the brakes, belts and hoses
inspecting for any fluid leaks,
, listening for
any abnormal noises, and paying attention to any irregularities in the
operation of the vehicle.
If you have your service at the dealership, have them check and perform any
recalls on the vehicle.
Possible Repairs Needed at the 20,000 Mile Service
It's not uncommon for your vehicle to need a brake pad replacement at
this mileage, and on some vehicles the tires may need replacement.
- We recommend considering replacement of the air filter every year or 12,000 to 15,000 miles.
Why this happens
- If oil has contaminated the air filter, it should be replaced. Oil contamination may indicate a problem with the PCV system.
- Air filters will need replacement more often in vehicles driven in dusty and sandy areas.
