What Fluids Need to Be Changed in My Car?

When it comes to vehicle maintenance, it can be difficult to keep track of all the different fluids you may need to change. But regular maintenance can save you a lot of money, and a lot of headaches, down the road. So what are the different fluids you need to change? Engine Oil Your engine's oil is one of the most important fluids in your vehicle. It keeps all the moving parts well lubricated and prevents excessive wear and tear. You should generally get it changed every 5000 miles, or every 6 months, whichever comes first. Although you'll want to monitor your oil levels at least once a month to check for leaks.

But a rule of thumb is about ever ... read more

When to Use The Emergency Brake

When to Use The Emergency Brake

When should you use the emergency brake? Both new and experienced drivers often have this same question. Today, we will set the record straight and explain how and when to use your e-brake properly.  The emergency brake, also known as a parking brake, e-brake, or handbrake, works separately from the brakes that often get serviced at the auto repair shop. It was intentionally made separate to serve as a backup brake if your primary/service brakes fail. Your service brakes are usually a hydraulic system. In contrast, the e-brake is engineered to hold your automobile in place. Therefore, it's recommended you use it when parking. When to Use the Emergency Brake Of course, you should always engage the emergency brake whenever your brakes fail. However, a misconception stems from the name 'emergency brake' because most people assume that you should only use it in emergencies. That is not the case; You should be using your emergency brake every time you park. It doesn ... read more
