Frequently Asked Service Questions
Have Service Questions? We Have Your Service Answers.
How often should I rotate my tires?
Your tires should be rotated every other oil change or every 6,000 miles. Neglecting to rotate your tires can cause premature tire wear.
What does it mean if my ‘check engine’ or ‘service engine soon’ light comes on?
Many different sensors and components work together to manage your vehicle’s engine performance and emissions. If one of these fails, the ‘check engine’ light will illuminate. While a problem may not be apparent at first, it’s important to have the issue addressed to prevent expensive, long-term problems.
When should I get my oil changed?
Your owner’s manual outlines your vehicle’s specific oil change needs, but as a general rule you should change your oil every 3,000-5,000 miles, or when your engine oil life monitoring system alerts you.
When should I replace my car’s fuel filter?
You should replace your car’s fuel filter every 30,000 miles, or as recommended in your vehicle’s owner manual, to keep your vehicle dependable and trouble-free!
Why does the steering wheel shake when I apply the brakes?
A shaky steering wheel when the brakes are applied is most commonly caused by warped brake rotors that become warped due to excessive heat, or because they have become too thin to disperse the heat properly.
What is the primary cause of tire damage?
Improper inflation is the main cause of tire damage. To make sure your tires are properly inflated, always keep a tire pressure gauge in your vehicle and frequently check the pressure of all tires – including your spare!
Why is it important to have the correct tire air pressure?
Having the correct tire air pressure allows for the best gas mileage and optimal tread contact with the road. The wrong amount of amount of air pressure could result in tire damage. Underinflated tires create heat from excess friction and can cause accelerated wear or a blowout. Overinflated tires could cause poor handling and unusual wear on the tires.
