Most vehicles should have their oil changed every 3 months or 3-5,000 miles. Tires are one of the most important part of your car safety devices. Having good quality, well threaded tires on your car is essential to ensuring you and your family travel safely to your final destination. You should always check your tires before every ride – a simple look can identify if one tire is possibly more deflated that the other. If you immediately have the air pressure checked and filled to your car manufacturer standard. Always make sure that your mechanic checks your tires and rotates them when they are doing their normal maintenance.
Air Filters also need to be looked at and changed with every maintenance check. Like humans, your car needs to breathe through all the smoke & smog that normal conditions produce. Keep your car air filter clean will go a long way to keeping your car healthy!
Like having a good dentist, finding a good mechanic that understands your vehicle requirements and is equipped & skilled to accurately handle your car is the number one thing you can do to make sure your car lasts the mos possible years and can play a great part in helping you to get the most value for it when you are ready to sell it.
When the weather changes it is important that you follow some key guidelines:
The best way to avoid an accident during bad weather conditions is to wait until it has passed. This will prevent damage to your vehicle as well as any potential bodily injury.
One good way to check the tread of your tire is to take a penny, insert it into the tread groove of the tire, with the Lincoln head upside down. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head, then you need new tires.
Most of today's cars have tire indicator lights that keep track of these things, if your car has this them you should keep an eye for that indicator. Having this is good; however, you should still continue to do your manual visual checks.
As stated, your tires will be checked with your maintenance and it is important to make sure that you bring it to your mechanic to safely check them.
