Every driver knows the value of regular car service, which not only ensures that your vehicle is operating safely but also saves you money by offering preventative measures before costly repairs are needed.
However, sometimes car service can be confusing. We’ve put together this short list of Car Service FAQs and tips to get you started:
What should my tire pressure be?
This question can be quickly answered by checking out the inside edge of your driver’s side door or your owner’s manual. Be sure to get the tire pressure as close as you can to the indicated number, without going over.
How frequently should I get my oil changed?
While the answer is slightly different for each car and depends on how frequently you drive, the average vehicle (with regular oil) should have its oil changed about every 3,000 miles. Consult the owner’s manual for your vehicle to get more specific, and consider simply changing your oil once a month.
How frequently should I change my wiper blades?
If you don’t appear to be having any wiper-blade-related problems, you can probably just change your wiper blades about once a year. However, if you notice that your windshield is getting streaky, you should certainly change them more frequently.
Is it dangerous to drive while my “check engine” light is on?
Quite possibly, but there are many reasons why the light may come on, and some are more dangerous than others. Whatever you do, drive cautiously and make sure that a professional diagnoses your problem as soon as possible.
