The Chevrolet Corvette is synonymous with American muscle and performance. Its enduring reputation for speed, power, and luxury makes it a prized vehicle for many. To maintain its peak performance, specific attention must be given to various parts and maintenance practices.

Engine and Ignition Systems

  • Spark Plugs: Vital for ignition and fuel combustion, spark plugs in a Corvette should be checked every 25,000 miles and replaced as needed.
  • Distributor Cap & Rotor: These should be inspected every 30,000 miles to ensure there are no signs of wear and tear that could affect performance.

Filters: Your Corvette’s First Line of Defense

  • Oil Filter: Keeping your engine clean is paramount. Replace the oil filter every 3,000 miles or during each oil change to maintain optimal performance.
  • Air Filter: For maintaining horsepower and fuel efficiency, replace the air filter every 15,000 miles.
  • Fuel Filter: Replacing the fuel filter every 40,000 miles ensures that your fuel system stays free of contaminants.

Additional Vital Components

  • Transmission Fluid and Filter: These are crucial for gear longevity and should be replaced every 60,000 miles.
  • Drive Belts: Check for wear every 20,000 miles and replace as necessary.
  • Coolant: Protect your engine from overheating by replacing the coolant every two to three years, or as recommended by your service manual.

Expert Corvette Maintenance Tips

  1. Specialized Care: Your Corvette is a specialized machine; use a service center that understands its unique requirements.
  2. Quality Parts: Always use OEM or high-performance aftermarket parts to maintain your Corvette’s top-notch performance.
  3. Tire Pressure: Frequent checks are essential for maintaining optimal handling and fuel efficiency.
  4. Regular Monitoring: With a car as finely tuned as a Corvette, regular diagnostic checks can spot issues before they become expensive problems.

Great family owned business, run a cool father and son duo. I’ve been taking my cars here for over a decade.

I’ve come across 2 types of mechanics over the years: 1) fixes what needs fixing, checks everthing else out, tells the customer what to keep an eye on/expect in the future. 2) fixes what needs fixing and EVERYTHING else that it touches.

PB Foreign and Domestic is type 1) – straightforward, steady, and honest – which is why I keep coming back and I suspect it’s why the same guys have been working there for forever too.

For regular oil changes and maintanance, George is awesome and everyone he employs, this place is great no complaints! Always will look at something if you have a concern like I did. Minor and didn’t Rip me off like most places would have.

I truly feel like I’m getting the service that’s required and not being upsold on things I don’t need. The price is always better than anywhere else I’ve looked and repairs done timely. They always call if the estimate given to me ends up being different, sometimes it’s lower and if it’s higher they clearly explain why and if it’s absolutely necessary or a recommendation. I trust them.

If you want a local independent family owned car mechanic that is honest, trustworthy, reasonably priced, and not trying to nickel & dime you these are your guys! Aaron is especially a pleasure to deal with. He went above and beyond at my last oil change to help me on a few things that would have taken tons of time to figure out on my own, you can tell he enjoys helping people (when they aren’t too busy) and is just a personable good natured guy which is so great to have in a car mechanic. Couldn’t recommend them enough!

We really love PB Foreign and Domestic! They have served us well for years on 3 vehicles and have never been disappointed. Highly recommend over dealership or other local facilities. They don’t try to upsell you on things you do not need. Super friendly and can usually get you in within a day or two. It is best to call ahead and make an appointment.

Porsche Cayman – my car was overheating so I had my car towed to PB Foreign and Domestic Car Repair. The team was able to repair my car ( I needed a new radiator and water pump) and they gave me very fair pricing. I will definitely come back for my preventitive maintenance.
