As summer is finally in full swing, things will get busy, especially when it comes to taking the kids to camp, their classes, baseball games, appointments, and so on. But is your vehicle up for putting up the grueling days as well?

At RPM Automotive, our mechanics in Prairie du Chien, WI recommend that you come in for routine maintenance before the running around begins. The last thing you want to deal with on one of those busy days is car trouble. We want you to save yourself the stress and bring the vehicle in for routine maintenance.

While your vehicle is being looked at, your mechanic will take a look at the following:


The transmission is so important when it comes to your vehicle. Our mechanics will check for any issues such as low fluid, clutch problems, and any other common issues. A failing transmission can ultimately lead to engine problems that can actually kill your vehicle.


Our mechanics will check to see if your tires will need to be rotated. We do this so your tires can last you a long time. If they need replacing, we’ll find the right kind of tires for you and install them the same day. On top of that, they are covered under the 3 year/36,000 mile warranty that we offer for not just tires but also for each part that we replace (if needed).

Your brakes should be in good working order. Any wear or tear can lead to disaster. If you happen to hear any grinding or weird noises each time you apply them, you better get your vehicle into our shop and fast. Failing breaks will make the car too dangerous to drive.


Like your tires, the alignment is vital to the car’s performance. Poor alignment can cause your tires to wear sooner rather than later. It can even trigger a domino effect of mechanical issues. Our mechanics will make sure that any misalignments will be fixed on the spot during your routine maintenance if they find any.
Other functions

Any auto mechanic will make sure that all of your lights are in working order. Especially the “check engine” light, which warns you in the event of any “under the hood issues.” They’ll also check to see if your headlights, AC/heating system, and everything in between are in working order.
