What if I don't change my oil?​

SubTitle

How Often should I change my oil?​

SubTitle
The standard answer for this question is every 3,000 miles. However, this is not entirely accurate anymore. Because of the innovations being made on new engines nowadays, it isn’t necessary to change your oil as often as we used to. The answer to this lies in your​ vehicles owner’s manual. Every owner manual will tell you when your vehicle needs to have its oil changed, and include other maintenance information as well. In general though, the older your vehicle is the more often you need to change your oil. For example, Ford​ recommends​ that 2007 models and older should change their oil every 5,000 miles or every 6 months.

How often should I check my tires?

The air pressure in tires can change with the slightest change of weather. Even a 20 degree drop at night can have an impact on Tire pressure. This is why it is important to check your tire pressure often. Typically it is recommended to check it once a month. If there are any significant changes in weather, it would be a good idea to check your tire pressure then, too.

Should I use premium gas?

When should I check brakes?

SubTitle

What is the Check Engine Light?

SubTitle
When this light comes on it could indicate a number of things. First, there are two ways that your light will indicate a problem. The first is simply by appearing on your screen. This indicates that there is an issue in the electronic-control system that cannot be fixed within the system itself, but does not indicate an immediate detrimental problem for the car. When this comes on, it is best to take it and have the code read to discern the issue. The code will tell the technician which tests to perform to determine where the issue is. The second way the check engine light will appear on your screen is by flashing on and off. If this happens, there is an issue that could potential damage your vehicle if it is not checked quickly.
