Q: What does B1 and B2 service mean?

asked by on

what does B1 or B2 service mean?
My car has an automatic transmission.

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.
