Helpful Tips to Maintain Your Car Oil

Helpful Tips to Maintain Your Car Oil

A routine oil change is one essential maintenance task that can keep your vehicle running in tip-top shape. The engine is complex and consists of many hot moving parts. The oil acts as an engine lubricant to ensure its critical components move smoothly. As you drive, the motor oil burns off. And if you wait too long between oil changes, the burnt oil can leave a thick, gritty sludge behind. Dirty oil limits friction within the engine, drastically limiting its efficiency. Regularly checking your oil can prevent engine damage by helping you determine if the oil is low or needs to be changed. Below are recommended steps for checking the oil:  1. Pop the hood The oil dipstick handle is usually yellow and typically has an oil can image identifying its location. 2. Remove the dipstick and wipe it off. Then reinsert it.  3.

Why You Need A Cabin Air Filter Replacement

Why You Need A Cabin Air Filter Replacement

The cabin air filter in your vehicle plays a very important role when it comes to keeping the air in your vehicle safe and clean. Humid climates such as in Oklahoma City, OK, can cause a ton of moisture in the air to run through your vehicle’s cabin air filter. Moisture present in the cabin air filter can cause an increase in contaminants and mold to accumulate.  The air outside of your vehicle while driving on packed roads and freeways contains many air contaminants, such as dust, diesel soot, pollen, and smog. The cabin air filter is responsible for filtering the dirty air as it enters your vehicle’s air conditioning and heating system. Once the cabin air filter becomes saturated with debris, it prevents fresh air from getting into the vehicle, and can be a cause for concern for you and your passenger’s health. When dirty air gets into your vehicle, it remains extremely concentrated.  This is why it is so important to have your vehicle’s cabin air ... read more

How Often Should I Replace My Windshield Wipers?

Your vehicle's windshield wipers are a key component when it comes to visibility. Without working wipers, you may not be able to see the road clearly in events such as rain or if you get to your car to find that the windshield is dirty. We've seen it happen many times before - a driver hasn't replaced their wipers in years, and when a rainstorm hits, they find themselves having to pull over because they can't see. We never want you to be in this situation, because it can be extremely dangerous.  The question is, how long do windshield wipers last exactly and when should they be replaced? In warmer climates, it is typically recommended to replace your wipers every 6 months or every year. It depends on if your car is always parked out in the sun and how dry the weather is. If you're always under the sun in dry heat, you'll find that you need to replace your windshield wipers often. This is because the rubber becomes dry and begins to fray.  If it has b ... read more
