4 Most Important Maintenance Items On Your Vehicle.

Here are some ways you can prevent unexpected maintenance that can lead to serious problems.

1. Oil

Exhaust gasses from the cylinders and even small bits of metal will contaminate the oil and reduce its effectiveness.  Heat from the engine also breaks down the oil.  Just like any other fluid, heat will reduce the viscosity (thickness) of the oil.  If the oil becomes too thin, it won’t lubricate the engine as well as it should, and parts wear out faster.

2. Air Filter

So, how can you know if you need change your pads? You could take your car into one of the infinite number of shops that offer free brake inspections.  Unfortunately, if that shop is even a little less than honest, they will tell you that you need new pads. If you own a BMW or other vehicle from a small selection of German automakers, then your brake pads have an electronic monitor built in.  When the pads wears down, a light will display on your dashboard.

Even if you own a Cavalier, you’re still in luck. Almost all brake pads come with a built in wear indicator! This usually consists of a small metal tab on the brake pad.  As the pad wears down, this tab comes closer to the brake rotor.  When it finally makes contact, you will hear a slight screeching or scraping sound.
