Auto Repair Frequently Asked Questions
How often should my oil be changed?
The oil in your vehicle should be changed every 3,000 – 5, 000 miles, depending on what’s listed in the owners’ manual. Check the manual before you decide at what interval to replace your oil. If you have a used car that doesn’t have a manual with it or you’ve misplaced your manual, stay on the safe side, and have your car’s oil changed every 5,000 miles.
How often should I rotate my tires?
Your tires should be rotated every other oil change or about every 6,000 miles. Once again, take cues from your owner’s manual, and if you don’t have one, talk to a qualified auto repair specialist that can assess the wear on your tires for you.
My check engine light is on, but my car is running fine – do I need an appointment?
You should still get this checked out as soon as possible. A check engine light can alert you to smaller problems – such as a misfiring cylinder – that could end up becoming larger problems down the road. It’s best to get these things taken care of right away.
I have gas, why won’t my car start?
The most common reasons that you can’t start your car have to do with a bad battery, a failing alternator, or even a faulty ignition key. If the car tries to start, but just won’t turn over, usually, this is a dead battery, especially if it’s after the first freeze of the season. Contact a local auto shop for more details and diagnosis.
