How often should I change my oil?
To ensure you maintain the warranty on your vehicle please check your vehicle manual.
Change your engine oil at the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended service interval that matches your vehicle’s operating conditions and your driving habits
- The best advice, ignore the oil industry and go by your car’s user manual, which will probably advise an interval of 5,000 miles or more. You’ll save some money — and possibly keep the world a little greener in the process.
How often should I rotate my tires?
You should rotate your tires everytime you change the oil in your car. Either every 3 months or 5,000 miles.
Rotating your tires means moving them from one side of the vehicle to the other, moving them from front to back, or a combination of both. This helps avoid uneven tire wear, which can lead to poor performance and decreased gas mileage. Tires may wear differently depending on their position on the vehicle, your driving style, and the condition of your suspension
Regularly rotating your tires helps evenly distribute tire wear – helping you get the most miles out of your tires while maximizing traction on all four wheels
On front-wheel-drive vehicles, front tires tend to wear faster than rear tires due to added pressure/resistance from steering
What does a transmissions fluid service include?
A transmission service is part of your routine maintenance, just like rotating your tires.
complete transmission service should include:
• removing and examining the sump or pan
• replacing or cleaning the screen or filter
• cleaning the pan
• reinstalling the pan with a new pan gasket
• pumping out the rest of the old fluid and replacing it with new, high quality ATF
• adding a friction modifier or additive package
New fluid restores the holding power between the clutches, reducing slip and heat production. Flushing the old fluid washes away tiny particles of clutch material and metal shavings. The result of changing the fluid is to provide better lubrication, improved the holding ability of the friction components, and reduced heat.
