We work hard to provide each one of our customers with exactly what they need for every season. Before we round the corner into fall, we suggest keeping a checklist of the following three car care tips to keep your vehicle running smoothly.
1.Stay up-to-date on oil changes.
Making sure that you complete the necessary oil changes on your vehicle is imperative to keeping it running for years to come. At JD’s Auto Repair, we recommend that you have your oil changed every three thousand miles to every five thousand miles. Even if you don’t drive your vehicle often, engine oil can still get contaminated from accumulated moisture. Most mechanics place a sticker on the windshield for an easy visual reminder of your next oil change. At JD’s Auto Repair, we can perform oil changes almost any time, so stop in or give us a call if you need the service.
2. Replace air filters as needed.
A car filter that lasts for about twenty-five thousand miles and is driven on mostly interstates is not the same as a filter that is in a car driven on gravel, country roads. You’ll have to have your sir filter changed depending on the kind of driving that you do, and it can be different from season to season, as well. At JD’s Auto Repair, we can help you gauge how often you’ll need to have your particular car’s air filter changed. As a general rule of thumb, have your air filter changed once a year.
3.Keep an eye on your windshield wiper blades.
Can you remember how well your windshield wipers worked the last time it rained? Windshield wiper blades are often the most neglected parts of cars nowadays, and yet they perform such an important job. Many car repair shops will suggest that you replace your windshield wiper blades every six to twelve months for optimum performance. Be on the look-out for any obvious signs of wear, such as cracking, streaking or bending. If you need a replacement set of windshield wiper blades, just stop in or give JD’s Auto Repair a call today.
