How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

How often your vehicle needs an oil change depends on what kind of oil it takes. While every vehicle is different, there are some general guidelines you can follow. If your car runs on conventional oil, it'll need an oil change every 3,000 miles or every three months. With synthetic oil you'll need to schedule an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles or every six months.

Why Is My Check Engine Light On?

There are a few things that can cause your Check Engine light to turn on. The most minor cause is a loose gas cap. If you tighten your gas cap and it remains on, it's likely that there's some issue under the hood with a part like your catalytic converter, spark plugs, or your exhaust system.

Why Won't My Car Start?

When your vehicle won't start, it's usually because of a problem with one of the parts in your electrical system. This could mean you have a dead battery, need new spark plugs, or that there's a problem with the alternator.

How Long Do Car Batteries Last?

Your car's battery can last up to five years. However, that can vary based on how you drive and how much use the electrical system gets. Both idling for a long time and frequently using it to charge devices can drain the battery faster. It's also important to make sure you turn everything off with the engine. Leaving an overhead light on overnight can drain the battery in just a few hours.

Why Are My Brakes Squeaking?

Usually squeaky brakes are a sign that your brake pads have worn down and need to be replaced. Sometimes they can squeak for a few hours after it rains, but this is just because of moisture on your rotors and should go away once they dry. If your brakes squeak consistently, it's time to get new brake pads.

How Long Do Brake Pads Last?

Brake pads can last anywhere between 30,000 and 80,000 miles. While they're designed to last for a while, how long they actually last depends on how you drive. If you're the kind of driver who slowly and gradually comes to a stop, your brake pads will last longer. Sudden stops and slamming on the brakes at high speeds cause brake pads to wear down faster.

What Do Technicians Check During an Inspection?

During an inspection, our technicians check every part and system for wear and tear. They'll examine the interior, exterior, suspension, and under the hood and look for any signs of damage. You can also rely on them to check the battery and fluid levels. If necessary, they'll refill or change fluids like your oil, coolant, brake fluid, and transmission fluid.
