When something goes wrong with your car, it can be stressful. Thankfully, we’re here to give you some peace of mind and answer some common service questions you might have.
How often should I change my oil?
While there’s no “magic” number, you should change your oil about every 3,000 to 6,000 miles. It actually all depends on your style of driving, your car, and your environment. Check your owner’s manual for recommended miles between an oil change.
What PSI should my tires be?
Again, that all depends on your car and your tires. Look in your owner’s manual for your proper PSI. Make sure you regularly check tire pressure to make sure they’re at the ideal PSI.
How do I know when to replace my tires?
There are a number of signs that your tires are wearing down. There’s a rule of thumb that suggests getting them replaced every 25,000 to 50,000 miles. That’s a big range, so make sure that you’re keeping an eye on their treadwear in between these miles just in case some of them are wearing faster than others.
When should I replace my wiper blades?
Keep an eye on your windshield when you need to use them. If it seems like they aren’t doing the job, replace them! But in general, you should replace them once a year. If your car is subject to a lot of rain, though, you might need to replace them two or three times a year.
How important is tire rotation?
Important! You have to rotate your tires regularly to ensure that the wear is even throughout all of the tires. If you don’t rotate them, then your front tires will end up wearing faster since there’s more stress and weight on them.
