  • Vehicle tips

    • 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.

      -Timothy Y.

    • Had a great experience with Luikart's! I have a 2011 Volvo C30 with over 110K miles and one day the engine started whistling and vibrating badly. Took it over and Ken immediately knew what was wrong and did a great job repairing- no problems since. The price was very fair after a search online. The folks are very friendly as well- would highly recommend to anyone.
      -Peter A.

    • I love Luikart's. I have always trusted Kenny and his crew, and I haven't been wrong. I drive a 2001 Ford Sport Track with 260,000 miles and still going strong. Sure, it's a great truck, but Kenny's service has had a lot to do with keeping it running smoothly and being fuel-efficient. Thanks guys!
      -Cheryl L.

    • Every time I've had a vehicle repaired there I have had fantastic results.
      -Howard S.

    • I can’t say enough good things about this place. The people at Luikarts are genuine and don’t try to upsell you. They get things done in a timely manner, they use OEM parts, and they are very patient and willing to answer all of your questions. I’ve gotten all of my spark plugs re done here as well as getting my low beam lights replaced and they have made it such a smooth process. HIGHLY RECCOMMEND.
      -Paris C.

    • My daughter is a Baylor student and we always take her car to Luikarts for oil change and repairs. They are so friendly and make every effort to fix your car. If they can’t then they will tell you what you need and where to get it checked out.
      -Joni S.

    • Lifesaver! Visiting Waco for a wedding. Our 2011 Volvo started making a terrible noise and the Check Engine Light came on. Closest Volvo dealer in Temple. Found Luikarts with google and walked in when they opened. They were stacked up but offered to try to get to it in the afternoon. Recommended another service provider, but when I called them, they gave me the same story. They had cars lined up and probably could not get to it till afternoon and any repairs probably not till the next week. Called Luikarts back with that information, they said come back down and they would at least try to determine the problem. End result. They got it fixed by 4:00p at a reasonable cost. Highly recommend them.
