tire rotationTires should be serviced periodically following the rotation patterns provided in the vehicle's owner's manual or as established by the industry. Using tire rotation as a preventative maintenance will equalize front-to-rear and side-to-side wear rates while enhancing wear quality and pattern noise. Any minor 1/32" to 2/32" differences in front-to-rear tread depth between tires that might be encountered immediately after periodic tire rotations at 3,000-5,000 mile intervals won't upset the vehicle's hydroplaning balance and should not preclude rotating tires. For that matter, any differences in wear rates actually indicate that tire rotations should be done more frequently.

You Should Replace Your Shocks and Struts Every 50,000 Miles.

SHOCKS AND STRUTS REPLACEMENTYou probably don’t have a hard time figuring out when your brakes or tires are wearing out. Shocks and struts, on the other hand, are much more difficult to inspect. But just like tires and brakes, shocks and struts are safety-critical vehicle components that should be checked regularly for wear and tear. Your car relies on its suspension system; specifically shocks & struts too keep your vehicle riding smoothly and safely, and keep you comfortable. Like any other component on your vehicle, shocks and struts will wear out over time.

headlamp-before-and-afterHeadlight restoration is very important as headlights are like the eyes of the car. If they’re fogged and hazy, it can be dangerous for you to drive your vehicle. New headlight lenses are very expensive. Since restoration is affordable, you can have the headlight lens looking as good as new with the help of a headlight lens cleaner. Below are tips for successful headlight restoration.

1. Damage Inside of the Headlight Lens

If the damage is on the inside, you will see condensation from moisture. If this is the case, the moisture needs to be drained.

oil-lube-changeCheck the owner's manual to see if your driving habits are considered to be "severe service." This type of driving requires more frequent oil changes, warns the Car Care Council. Have the oil changed accordingly, usually every 3-5,000 miles. For less wear and tear on the engine, drivers in cold climates (sub-zero driving temperatures)should drop their oil weight from 10-W30 to 5-W30.

s4-systemThe exhaust system is an assembly in a vehicle's engine that takes care of the burnt gas that the engine produces. It consists of exhaust pipes, through which exhaust gas flow through from one chamber to another, a header, which collects the same gas from different cylinders and directs it to the pipes, a catalytic converter, which converts the pollutant gases produced during combustion into less harmful substances, a muffler, which reduces engine noise, and a turbocharger, which increases engine power.
