Why You Need Oil Changes

Why You Need Oil Changes

When talking about preventative maintenance for vehicles of all shapes and sizes, nothing is more important than the standard oil change. Most car and truck owners are pretty well trained at getting their oil and oil filter changed every 3,000-5,000 miles along with other basic maintenance services. It's just part of life, like filling up gas or diesel when the tank is empty. However, a lot of vehicle owners don't quite understand why oil changes are so important. When to Get Your Oil Changed Most vehicle manufacturers will recommend changing the oil and oil filter at 3,000-5,000 mile intervals. Most newer vehicles (and especially any using synthetic oil) will only need this maintenance every 5,000 miles (roughly every 5-6 months depending on your driving habits). Older vehicles that use standar ... read more

What Your Exhaust System Does

What Your Exhaust System Does

When your exhaust system is working properly, you won't even notice it. However, if you have a problem with your catalytic converter, muffler, exhaust pipes or other important exhaust system components, you will notice it quickly. And when you have exhaust problems, you'll want to get them fixed as quickly as possible. If not, the results could be deadly.

In a nutshell, it takes harmful exhaust fumes away from your engine, diverting them through the exhaust pipes and out the back of the vehicle. Even in the cleanest-emission vehicles, these fumes can be toxic and caustic. When the exhaust system isn't working properly, it can lead to much bigger problems. It can deteriorate important engine components. Even worse is the fear for carbon monoxide poisoning. If those fumes are l ... read more
