Q?

Why is engine oil milky brown?

A.

Milky brown engine oil is an indication of coolant in the oil. This can be caused by a blown head gasket (or other gasket), a failed transmission cooler, or cracked casings. This condition is very serious and needs to be checked by a professional technician immediately.

Q?

How often should I change my oil?

A.

Depending on the vehicle make and model, most cars require an oil change at about 3,000 Miles intervals or roughly about 3 months. On many newer vehicles, engine oil service has increased to 5,000 mile intervals due to Synthetic Motor Oils, which do not break down as quick as regular conventional oils and provide better heat protection for your Engine.

How often should I check my oil level?

Most automatic transmissions should be serviced every 30,000 to 60,000 Miles. Most transmissions have a serviceable filter which should also be replaced during that time.

Q?

When should I replace my timing belt?

A.

Vehicles that use a timing belt should have it replaced at about 90,000 Miles and should be inspected every 30,000 Miles after that.

Q?

When should I replace my battery?

A.

You should replace your battery when your vehicle has certain starting issues which are usually linked to worn out or under charged batteries.

Q?

How often should I rotate my tires?

A.

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.

Q?

What does it mean if my “check engine” or “service engine soon” light comes on?

A.

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.

Q?

What should I do if my car starts to overheat?

A.

This is a very serious problem - if your car overheats for too long, you can damage your engine. As soon as possible, find a safe place to pull off the road and shut the engine off! Do not attempt to check the fluid level in the radiator; the hot fluid can cause severe burns. The best thing to do is have your car towed to the nearest, trusted auto repair facility.
