The Importance of an Oil Change
First of all, your car needs oil to keep its parts lubricated and running smoothly. When the oil becomes low, your car will not run properly. At best, it will overheat. At the worst, the engine could freeze up. When the oil becomes thick and black, sludge can build up in your engine and create expensive problems. With that said, you should check your oil regularly and get an oil and filter change when it becomes dirty.
Auto Maintenance Means Tires Too
Never overlook your car’s tires when you have it maintained. Not only is tire pressure important, but tire rotation is essential as well. Low tire pressure will put strain on your car and can even increase fuel consumption. Over-inflated tires run the risk of blowouts.
Tire rotation and balancing needs to be done regularly to help reduce the wear and tear on your tires. Keep in mind, that a new set of tires will be much more expensive than simply keeping your old ones rotated and at the proper pressure. If you notice any wear patterns on the edges of your tires, you should have them rotated and balanced.
There are many other things that you need to maintain regularly in your car including a transmission oil change, battery service, fluid flush and transmission repair service. In many cases, a 60,000 mile maintenance checkup is all that is required to keep your car running properly.
However, if you drive a lot, you may need a 30,000 mile maintenance checkup. Whatever you may need though, Dr. Brakes in Pompano Beach (also serving Boca Raton, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale and Margate) is here to help. We can check all your fluids, service your tires and keep your car running properly at all times.
