According to most maintenance schedules, tires should be rotated every six months, or every 6,000 – 8,000 miles. Neglecting to rotate tires is a major cause of premature tire wear. Check your owner’s manual, or let one of our trusted service technicians tell you the exact tire rotation time interval to follow..
One of the biggest mistakes people make is to set the air pressure in the tires based on the sidewall of the tire. You’ll find the proper tire pressure for your tires on the decal (placard) located on the driver’s side doorjamb. Please note that your placard may be located in your glove box.
If you notice any of the following, it’s probably time: 1) uneven tire wear, 2) cracking or bulging tire treads or sidewalls, 3) anything poking into the tire, 4) tread pulling away from the body of the tire or 5) worn treads that don’t pass the penny test.
Stick a penny in the tire tread, top first. If the tread doesn’t touch Lincoln’s head, your tires are worn and likely need to be replaced.
You may see your gas mileage decrease. Your vehicle may start running rough. If your check engine light comes on that could also be an indicator that your vehicle needs a tune up. The owner’s manual that came with your vehicle may suggest a tune up at a certain mileage.
It depends on the car’s make, model and year, as well as driving conditions. Many of today’s automakers recommend oil changes at 5,000, 7,000 or even 10,000 miles. Drivers should check the automaker’s recommendation by reviewing the car’s user manual.
There are a number of reasons brakes squeak, some may not be an indicator of trouble. When brakes wear down between 1/4th to 1/8th of an inch, a small metal rod called a “wear indicator,” becomes exposed. It’s purpose is to create a squealing noise to alert you that the brake pads need to be changed.
You don’t have to be an expert to know that preventive maintenance is the best way to make sure your vehicle is running properly.
These are just a few of the most commonly ignored issues.
