Frequently Asked Questions
/01What is Preventative Maintenance?
Preventative Maintenance is regular maintenance of your vehicle that helps keep your automobile running efficiently and eliminating potential problems that may leave you stranded. Manufacturers know that a properly maintained car .
/02Why is my check engine light on?
The check engine light illuminates when your vehicle's computer believes there is a problem that could affect — or is affecting — your car's emissions control system. When the light comes on, one or more diagnostic trouble codes are stored in the car's computer. These codes will stay there even if the light goes out. To address a check engine light issue, you or your mechanic can retrieve the codes by using an OBD-II scanner and then troubleshooting to find the problem.
If your light is on, it typically means the car's emissions control system is faulty and the vehicle is polluting the air beyond allowable federal standards. A vehicle in this condition would fail an emissions inspection or smog check.
Don't confuse the check engine light with the maintenance or service light. These lights illuminate when a routine service is due. They are usually triggered by mileage, gallons of gasoline consumed, or some other type of vehicle-use measurement.

/03How often should I rotate my tires?
This common maintenance task—which should typically be done every 5,000 to 8,000 miles—isn't one you should ignore. It may seem minor, but remember: Tires are the only thing that comes between your 2-ton vehicle and the road. Well-maintained tires will help you travel safely for tens of thousands of miles.
Without rotation, tires may not wear evenly. Front tires play a larger role in braking, and on front-wheel-drive vehicles they must claw for traction, which means they wear out more quickly. Plus, minute variations in suspension and alignment can introduce uneven wear patterns. All of this can have an impact on your car’s ride and noise level, as well as the tire's longevity.
/04What Happens If I Ignore My Low Tire Pressure Warning Light?
If your tire pressure is low then it can cause uneven wear on your tires. That means that one tire may wear faster than another forcing you to have to replace all of your tires sooner. This can be quite costly. Low tire pressure also puts you at risk of popping your tire sooner. When you drive down the highway you may also feel your vehicle pulling to one side of the road because of this. Also low tire pressure forces your vehicle to use more power to generate the same amount of speed, costing you more gas and money!
/05How Often Should I Have My Brakes Checked?
It is important to have your brakes checked often. Most folks have their brakes checked when they have their tires rotated. One of the mechanics at our service center can check the thickness of your brake pads to ensure that they are running at peak conditions. Your brake pads are essential for maintaining stopping power, so be sure to have them checked every chance that you get.
/06How Often Should I Have My Brake Pads Replaced?
Your brake pads should be replaced when they are worn down. If you don't replace your brake pads in a timely fashion then it can severely reduce your stopping power. This puts you and folks around you in danger. Not replacing your brake pads also means that your brakes will wear on your brake discs. This will wear them out and cause more costly repairs down the line.
