Did you know your car’s tire pressures can affect your fuel mileage and the way your vehicle handles? A substantial drop in temperatures will cause your tire pressure to decrease. Don’t forget to check those pressures when the frost appears.
If at all possible, never, ever, run your engine when it’s too hot. Overheating your engine can cause a lot of expensive damage. A few minutes spared to let the engine cool and make a visual inspection will always be worth your time. It could potentially save you A LOT of money.
We recommend changing your engine oil per the manufacturer’s recommendations for the grade oil utilized (synthetic vs. conventional). By doing that, you will know if your vehicle is “using” oil or if there are any possible leaks. This could prevent potential costly issues down the road.
Regular maintenance pays off in the long run. Pay attention to your vehicle. Don’t ignore those lights in your dash, and note any changes in acceleration, braking, or handling. It’s often less expensive to fix a small issue before it turns into something larger.
