Oil is the key to long engine life. Oil serves as a lubricant for the moving parts inside of your engine. Over time your oil will get dirty and have small pieces of metal in it. At this point, your oil becomes less effective at lubricating your engine. That is when your oil, as well as your oil filter, needs to be changed.
Consult your owners manual as to how often your oil should be changed. Most professionals recommend your oil be changed every 3 to 6 months or every 3,000 to 6,000 miles.
On your vehicle, there is a different amount of weight on the front and rear axles. This causes uneven wear of the tires as more weight will be on two of the tires. If your tires wear unevenly, you will have to buy more tires more often. To avoid all of this, tires are rotated regularly to ensure that all of the tires wear equally. This process gets you the most out of your tires.
Most professionals recommend you get your tires changed every 6 months or 6,000 to 8,000 miles. Doing this will make sure your tires last as long as possible, saving you money in the long run.
Over time, due to friction, your brake pads where out. When your brakes begin to approach the end of their usable life, they will indicate to the driver that they need to be replaced through sound. While driving there will be an audible scraping sound that will go away when applying the brakes. This is to warn that driver that the pads need to be replaced.
Brake pad life is dependent on a lot of factors but can generally last about 50,000 miles. Here at A-1 Auto Tech, we use only high-quality brake pads to ensure that they last as long as possible and that they function as you would desire.
