Do you need some tips on how ofter you should get the oil of your car changed? Here it the rule of thumb for keeping your car well maintained.

It is important to change your oil every 3000 miles, if you really want to keep all the parts in your car happy and coated with fresh oil free of metal partials. If this is the case  then 2500 miles will do the trick.

The filter will catch most of the partials  in the 3000 miles range after that you risk damage to your engine and its components.  Also have the rest of your fluids, wipers and tires checked at this time.

Look at inspection sticker expire date maybe it’s time while your oils getting changed. This save time another day when the sticker is up.

1. Your tire is running out of tread and has a flat surface If you can see the metal coming out of your tires it is already too late. That means that you should stop driving immediately because it is very dangerous. The idea is never let get to that point. We recommend you to change your tires every 40.000 miles. Shimon Auto Repair offers you a free check, so you can know exactly how bad your tires are and when you should change it.

Also, when the tire has no tread it means that it has nothing protecting it, so if the wheel hits against something then the rim could bend.

2. When you see cracks in the tire – This means that the tire is too dry and can rip apart. These cracks can appear anywhere on the tire.

3. If you see a bump on the tire – Bumps can show up by hitting curbs. If the bump on your tire hits something again, then the whole tire can blow up. This is the most dangerous thing to drive with. The bumps can appear on the side of the tire or on the tread. If its on the tread then you can feel bumps while your driving. If its on the side, it can last a little while, unless you don’t hit something.
