You’re on your way to work, to a wedding or graduation, or other important event, when all of a sudden the “Check Engine” light illuminates on the dash. You don’t want to be late, so you keep on driving. This little warning light can mean several things, from simply a loose gas cap, or a more serious misfiring engine. Do you know the things to check when the check engine light comes on? The important concern is to make sure that long-term damage isn’t taking place in your engine and that you aren't compromising the safety of your vehicle.

Do you know how the “check engine” light works? When the electronic-control system finds a problem it cannot adjust, the vehicle’s computer turns on a yellow warning indicator light and stores a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) in its memory. This code helps your mechanic pin point the source of a potential problem. It may simply indicate a malfunctioning sensor, or something more serious, such as low oil pressure. If there is trouble in the engine, it could mean that your vehicle is getting poor fuel economy and polluting the environment more than approved limits.

Four of the most overlooked parts of a vehicle when it comes to tire repair and maintenance are tires. Simply put, if the tires are not in optimal working order, such as too little or too much air pressure, then the vehicle is not going to be able to move smoothly and efficiently. Or, if the tread depth is too low, there is less grip on the road, increasing the chances of an accident. This said, it is very important to not only know when tire repair is needed, but to know just what are the symptoms of bad tires.

Here are two crucial issues of tires that will help you determine whether or not you need to replace your tires:

Oil changes are an important part of the vehicle maintenance that is needed to keep your car running smooth and healthy. Unfortunately, a lot of people have the “out of sight, out of mind” mentality when it comes to oil changes. Added to that is the fact that many people don’t budget their time or money for regular oil changes so they often fall by the wayside.

Oil serves to lubricate the engine so the metal components work together quietly and smoothly as well as to absorb the heat that is created from the moving parts. Over time, however, the oil becomes less effective as it starts to break down and accumulate dirt and sludge. It’s the time for an oil change! If you skip it, the damage to the engine will cost you a lot more money in the long run. Cars that have had regular maintenance performed as intended have a much longer life than those that don't.

Be sure to ask your mechanic how long does it take for an oil change. And, don’t forget to ask about the oil change coupons offered by the car shop.
