CAR CARE TIPS

Air Conditioning
When should my air conditioning system be checked?

  • Each year prior to the warm weather months.
  • Any time it isn't working to your satisfaction you should bring it for an A/C Check.

Brakes
How can I tell when my brakes need servicing?

  • The brake pedal can be depressed nearly to the floor.
  • You hear a squealing or other unusual noise when you apply the brakes. Some brands of brake pads have a built-in device that pitched squeal when the brake pads are getting low.
  • The car pulls to one side when you apply the brakes.
  • You feel a grinding or bumpy sensation as you come to a stop.
  • In general, if there is something about your brakes that is making you uncomfortable, you should have them checked

Oil Changes
When does my car's oil need changed?

  • Most manufacturers recommend an oil change every three months or 3,000 miles under severe driving conditions - city driving, stop & go, and dusty conditions - just about every case except steady highway driving.

Fuel-Saving Driving Tips

  • Don't be an aggressive driver -- Aggressive driving can lower gas mileage by as much as 33 percent on the highway and 5 percent on city streets, which results in 10 to 66 cents per gallon.
  • Avoid excessive idling -- Sitting idle gets zero miles per gallon. Letting the vehicle warm up for one to two minutes is sufficient.
  • Observe the speed limit -- Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph. Each mpg driven over 60 will result in an additional 10 cents per gallon. To maintain a constant speed on the highway, cruise control is recommended.

Tires

  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.

Transmision and Differential Fluids

  • RG Motorworks generally recommend these services every 30,000 miles.
