Frequently Asked Auto Service Questions Answered

When should I change my oil?

Making sure your vehicle has fresh and clean oil is one of the easiest things to prolong its life. A good rule of thumb to go by is to schedule your oil change appointment every 5,000 to 7,000 miles. However, every vehicle is different and oil changes depend greatly on what type of engine you have and what type of oil is needed.

When should I replace my brake pads?

Typically, vehicles need new brake pads every 25,000 to 40,000 miles. However, your driving habits and where you commute play a big part in this. If you are experiencing grinding noises when you try to stop, can see your brake pads are worn down, or feel your braking system just isn't working as it should, it may be time for a replacement.

How do I check my transmission fluid?

Checking to see if you need fresh transmission fluid is much like checking your oil. While your vehicle is running, place it into park and pop open the hood. Locate the transmission dipstick (this should be labeled) and pull it out. Then, dip your finger into the fluid at the end of the stick and rub it between your fingers. If it is not pink in color, smooth, and translucent, a transmission fluid change is needed.

How often should I rotate my tires?

To make sure your tires don't develop uneven treading, rotating them when you hit between 6,000 and 8,000 miles is smart. To make it easier for you, you can schedule your tire rotation every time you get an oil change. However, if you find that your treading is starting to wear, make sure to seek the help of a professional as soon as possible.

How long do car batteries last?

Depending on your vehicle's condition, the environment, and your driving habits, your battery life may vary. However, most tend to last about four years. Watch for signs that your battery may be near the end of the lifespan which includes your check battery light turning on, the battery fluid is continually low, and any leakage.
