My car has an automatic transmission.

A: The B1 service for your car means the follo...

The B1 service for your car means the following:

  • Replace engine oil and oil filter
  • Inspect front and rear brakes
  • Check parking brake adjustment

Inspect these items:

  • Tie rod ends, steering gear box, and boots
  • Suspension components
  • Driveshaft boots
  • Brake hoses and lines (including ABS)
  • All fluid levels and condition of fluids
  • Exhaust system
  • Fuel lines and connections
  • Rotate Tires

The B2 service includes the following:

Replace air cleaner element, check drive belts, and replace dust and pollen filter.

I would recommend having an expert mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to perform any of these services on your vehicle, from an oil change to a brake and suspension system check.
