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.
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.
You should get your oil changed every 3000 miles or as recommended in your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
Battery cables and terminals should be cleaned and inspected periodically to make sure they provide a good electrical connection.
Synthetic motor oils can be a good choice for high output, turbocharged or supercharged engines. Or for vehicles that are used for towing (especially during hot weather), and vehicles that operate in extremely cold or hot climates. Although more expensive than mineral-based oils, synthetic motor oils can improve fuel economy and provide longer intervals between changes.
For maximum fuel economy and peak engine performance, your spark plugs should be replaced every 30 months or 30,000 miles, unless your vehicle is equipped with 100,000-mile platinum-tipped spark plugs.
