Take Your Older Car or Truck To Moberg's Automotive Repair in Libertyville For Preventative Maintenance The consumer price index for used
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.
Absolute best auto repair experience that I've ever had. I live in the city, but Moberg's was so trustworthy and knowledgeable that I plan to come all the way up to Libertyville for future repairs. Well worth the extra drive. A++
Pete and his staff are the best--most knowledgeable, honest, helpful and professional auto repair service I have ever used in 50 years of driving. They are good examples of service to their customers as well as to the LORD.
I have had alot of repairs done at Mobergs and i know that i can trust them. They have given me honest assessments, telling me when i do need work and when i don't. I live over 45 minutes from there now, but still have my repairs done with them because of the trust factor.

Moberg's is the only place I will bring my car for repairs. I've had two major repairs done in the past couple months, and each time, Moberg's provides a superior experience. I am always able to get my car in quickly, and I love that they clearly explain each part of the repair to me in plain language that a non-expert like me can understand. I appreciate their efficiency, and they are always so kind and polite when I come to pick up my vehicle.
This place is fantastic. I was looking for a garage that would not tell me everything is wrong with my car just to sell me something to get their commission. I found that place at Moberg's Automotive. They are honest, friendly, loving people. They gained my trust from the first visit, and I will never go anywhere else if I can help it for as long as I live in the area. When Mr. Pete (the owner) says something needs fixing, it needs fixing. He will even go out of his way to help you. For example, just yesterday, my wife dropped her wedding ring under the passenger seat of my truck. I called Moberg's, scheduled an appointment, went up there, and they got it out. Although I took up their time, energy and space, Mr. Pete refused to accept any payment, saying, smiling, that he was glad to do it for me. This is the kind of experience you will have every time you go to Moberg's Automotive. They are experts, professionals, and friends. You will not regret your visit.
