Consider the high cost of not changing your oil!  

When you think of all the things you use your car for it becomes apparent how dependent we are on them. You use it for work or school commutes, grocery shopping, vacations, school and sports activities; the list seems endless. Routine maintenance is a must to keep your car functioning at the best level it possibly can. Many auto repair technicians advise you to have an oil change your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles to prevent sludge build up and problems with your engine. If you neglect routine maintenance, such as oil changes, small problems can easily become large problems.

How Much Does an Oil Change Cost?

Of course, the cost will vary a little, depending on the quality of oil you choose and the quality of the filter. It has increasingly become more difficult for vehicle owners to change the oil themselves, but many auto shops now offer oil change coupons or discounts.

Types of problems resulting from neglecting needed oil changes:

If you choose to ignore the routine maintenance on your vehicle, be prepared for larger issues to come around.

  • The first issue is your engine. If you don't properly change your oil, it can cause parts of your engine to warp or wear out quicker. This will eventually lead to a total engine shut down and it will have to be replaced. The average cost of an entire engine replacement is $2,000 to $4,000.
  • A second problem is the general overall performance of the car will decrease and your car's life span will be drastically shortened.

Shop around and ask your local mechanics how much does an oil change cost and if they offer any oil change coupons, promotions, or discounts. By spending a little money now, you're saving yourself a lot of money later.

Has your vehicle failed the emissions test for vehicle registration? There could be several reasons why. A simple engine service could take care of any issues, or it could also mean a complete engine rebuild. Your trusted auto repair mechanic can run a diagnostics test and help you get your car back in shape!

Below are listed several common reasons for emissions failure.

1. Failing EVAP System – The "Evaporative Emission Control System" prevents gas vapors from being released into the air. This could be a simple fix by replacing a worn or cracked hose or a loose or faulty gas cap.

2. Bad O2 Sensor – The O2 sensor monitors exhaust fumes which may cause issues for your vehicle such as overheating or loss of engine power. If this sensor malfunctions, it will cause a failure because it may increase the hazardous fumes from the exhaust. This, too, can be replaced without major engine service.

Not only are rough braking habits tough on the braking system and tires, these poor habits can be dangerous and lead to premature brake repair. However, smooth braking tips can help preserve your vehicle's brakes and tires, and increase the safety of your driving. Unfortunately, many accidents are caused by a mechanical failure from lack of brake repair.

Of course, it is important to pay attention at all times for safe driving, but especially when braking! Here are a few smooth braking suggestions to consider:

** Upon approaching a stoplight or sign, resist braking rapidly at the last second. Because cars today have anti-lock braking systems, there is a pulsation that occurs when the brakes are depressed. The driver can feel this with their feet, so they must be careful to keep the pressure applied instead of reacting to the pulsation they feel. Sometimes, the left foot can be used to stabilize your body, but the timing must be so that the brakes are not applied too hard. This is done to prevent slipping--and a premature visit to your brake repair shop.

Ask the experts at your brake repair shop for advice about braking smoothly & safely. Be sure to take care of any needed brake repair issues as soon as possible
