PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure your vehicle stays reliable, and lets you avoid major repairs as well as the expenses that come with them. At Clayton Lube & Tune, we provide a complete preventative maintenance program, and carry all the necessary parts and expertise to take care of the little jobs that let you avoid the big ones. Choose from a comprehensive range of the fluids, oils, filters, and belts that your vehicle needs to keep running happily and healthily. Relax while your ride is inspected by our highly-trained technicians, and rest assured that it'll keep running smoothly for miles and miles.

The first part of our preventative maintenance program deals with your vehicle's fluids. Your car needs these fluids to keep running smoothly and prevent overheating. Most of our fluid change services are completed quickly so you can get back on the road in Clayton, NC. Our technicians are happy to monitor and refill your engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, brake fluid, anti-freeze, power steering and wiper fluids. We also perform checks on your radiator to ensure there are no small leaks caused by stones and other road debris.

The next area of our program deals with the filters in your car. Whether filtering oil, fuel, or air, your car's engine and drivetrain rely on pure ingredients free from power-robbing particles. Your vehicle's fuel system, for example, wants only the purest gasoline or diesel. When microscopic particles build up in the system over time they reduce its efficiency and cause issues like decreased gas mileage. The same goes for your engine's air filter. An engine needs a mix of fuel and air to create combustion, and that can't happen if your motor can't breathe. Regularly changing your car's filters will prevent this from occurring. Clayton Lube & Tune will make sure all your car's filters are flowing smoothly and clear, as well as the often-overlooked cabin air filter which can make a huge difference in how pleasant a car is to be inside.

Tire balancing is an important area of preventative maintenance where we excel. If your car's tires are out of balance, they could be putting undue strain on components in the suspension, braking, and drivetrain systems, which can cost you greatly further down the road. Ensuring a smooth ride with professionally balanced wheels and tires is a much cheaper, easier, and safer way to make sure your car stays on the road, while ensuring a long life for your tires.

Your car's timing belts are extremely important to examine during the course of preventative maintenance. There are a number of events that need to take place for one full revolution of your car's engine. These belts ensure that they all line up with each other, and occur at exactly the right moment. Should the belts become damaged or break, the events can fall out of sync and happen at the wrong time, which can be seriously detrimental to the health of your engine and your car overall. Clayton Lube & Tune ensures that all your car's belts are healthy, and that all of those events keep happening at exactly the right time.

If you want Clayton Lube & Tune to make sure that your vehicle is well-equipped to continue transporting you safely for years to come, call us at 919-879-8282, or visit us in Clayton, NC so we can schedule a time to take a look at it!

I have been a customer for 3 years by now. I have only good experiences. I always get the feeling of being serviced in the correct way.

Clayton Lube & Tune is AWESOME! The team is friendly, very knowledgeable & professional. I have been looking for a place in Clayton for years to service my GMC & I Hyundai vehicles and this place is the best in town. They have excellent technology for scheduling, repair options and cost review but also provide excellent staff to answer my questions in a timely & accurate manner on the phone & in the office. I was able to drop my car off 1 day prior to my service appointment & they were able to turn it around the same day. Huge surprise & greatly appreciated. The team always offers local rides and option of a loaner vehicle to accommodate to my busy schedule and general convenience. I have had oil changes, brake and AC work as well as general inspections with the work being professional, done properly & at a fair price. This is my go to auto shop & I will always recommend to anyone I talk with. A GREAT customer service experience exceeding my expectations! Thank You!!!!

Customer Service was wonderful, did not have to wait very long to get my car inspected and they also replaced a fuse for me. I will definitely go back there for my next service.

Went in 3 months ago for brakes, a/c and an oil change. Everything is working great and I really appreciate the guys. They went above and beyond for replacing my air filters and my window button. The staff were great as well as the quality of work. Thanks again.

Everyone at Clayton Lube & Tune is extremely professional and prompt! I was in and out much faster if I went some place else! Thanks for great service!

reviewicon

These people went above and beyond my expectations. I was there for a very simple service, an inspection; the fact that every single member of the staff stopped in to speak to me was enormously impressive. I can't tell you the last time that that has happened prior to visiting Clayton Tune and Lube. Prior to this I had a mechanic with whom I was okay. Moving forward, this is my garage of choice.

Great customer service! These guys are the best. They helped me figure out what maintenance I needed and got me an appointment right away. Upfront pricing quote made it easy to choose the services I wanted.

These guys were great! We had to get an inspection on my daughters car and they got us right in. She had a few things that failed the inspection process but they quickly gave us quotes for the repairs that were truly very well priced and they offered to get it done for her ASAP. First time here but I will make sure I and my friends/family check them out!

My van broke down on the side of 70 and was unsure of where to bring it for repair. Spoke with someone who quickly and he said to have it towed to the shop. Service was excellent, the staff was great and even received a follow up text to ensure my van is running great. Customer service on point. Thanks Clayton Lube and Tune team!!

We have always received great service here, with reasonable prices. We had an issue after having our brake pads changed, problem with the part, not the service. They fixed it without any problems and followed up to make sure everything was 100% perfect. I would recommend them!

I cannot say enough good things about Clayton Lube & Tube!!! My husband and I are new to the area and I needed an oil change and tire rotation done on my car. I was very impressed by all the wonderful reviews that this business had!!! Now I know why!!! They are very customer oriented and do the best for the customer and their vehicle. They took the time to explain what maintenance my vehicle might need and a timeline for that. I was very impressed with this business and they now have two new loyal customers!!!
