Frequently Asked Questions

Automotive experts recommend an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles depending on your driving style, the environment, and the type of oil you use. 

Yes, ask sales for more information.

  1. Ensure your tires are cold (meaning rested for at least 3 hours before tire pressure check or driven a mile or less at moderate speed). The best-case scenario is to wait until the following morning before you head out to check them.
  2. Check the manufacturer’s recommended PSI located on the driver’s side door jamb or indicated in your owner’s manual.
  3. Unscrew the air valve cap – this should be a protruding piece on top of the valve stem.
  4. Press the gauge to the open valve. If you hear a whistle of air, that is normal.
  5. Read the gauge and write down each tire’s PSI.
  6. Adjust the air pressure until it meets the recommended PSI by inflating them with an air compressor.
  7. After filling the tires, re-check each with your tire pressure gauge to ensure they are not overinflated. Let out air if necessary.
  8. Repeat this procedure monthly.
  9. It is ultimately your choice to go for a standard or digital tire pressure gauge. 
  10. Alternatively, you can use the air compressor at most gas stations.

Typically, tire rotation is called for every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, though there are exceptions.

The owner’s manual will spell out what should be done for your vehicle.

Yes, I have 60 day- temp plates for instate buyers and 30-day temp plates for out of state buyers.  Out of state buyers register their vehicles where they live as soon as possible. 30-day temp plates are not allowed in Massachusetts. Out of state buyers should check their State DMV for information about Temp plates.

The answer is no. No “Buy Here Pay Here”. Credit Unions are the best place to get a loan.

When you see a huge puddle of oil beneath your car, it’s never good news, and you can be fairly sure it’s a serious problem. But what if you only see a bit of oil? Or what if your oil level goes down, but you never see any leaks? What if your leaks only occur when your engine is cold or parked on an incline? With so many potential signs and types of engine oil leaks, it can be difficult to know when a leak is a big problem and when it isn’t.

  1. sticking calipers or caliper slides overheating the pads & rotors
  1. Warped Rotors
  2. unevenly torqued lug nuts (noted)
  3. failure to completely clean the hub to rotor mounting surface.
  4. cheap brake pads that can leave residue on the rotors, creating an uneven braking surface that gets worse over time
  5. your own braking style (noted)

Tire rotation is undertaken to ensure that the tires wear evenly. This can extend tire life and save you money.

Even tire wear is also important for balanced handling. For example, failure to rotate tires on a front-wheel-drive vehicle will eventually result in the front tires having significantly less tread than the rear tires. In an emergency, this could make the vehicle more difficult to control, especially if the road is wet.
