Tips and Advice - FAQ

Q. When should I get my oil changed?

Answer: Basic oil and filter change should be performed every 3000 Miles. True Synthetic oil and filter change should be performed every 5000 Miles. Basic oil and filter change with BG MOA Additive every 4000 Miles. (Check your oil level more often with a longer change interval)

Q. How often should I rotate my tires?

Answer: Your tires should be rotated every other oil change, or every 6000 miles. Neglecting to rotate tires is a major cause of premature tire wear

Q. Is it really necessary to replace my timing belt at the recommended interval?

Answer: YES. The failure of a timing belt in many cars can result in major engine damage. The cost of repairing an engine with a broken timing belt is much greater than the cost of a timing belt replacement.

Q. What does it mean if my "check engine" or "service engine soon" light comes on?

Answer: There are many sensors and computerized components that manage your vehicle’s engine performance and emissions. When one of these fails, the "check engine" light is illuminated. Although your car may seem to run fine, it is important to have the issue addressed to prevent long-term problems.

Q. What should I do if my car starts to overheat?

Answer: This is a very serious problem – if your car overheats for too long, you can damage your engine. As soon as possible, find a safe place to pull off the road and shut the engine off! Do not attempt to check the fluid level in the radiator as it can burn you. The best thing to do is have your car towed to a repair shop.
