Frequently Asked Service Questions

The best way to keep your car, truck, SUV, or van in good working order is to have it routinely maintained and repaired. For many, this task can be daunting. There are many different parts to a vehicle, all of which will require some form of routine maintenance or repairs throughout its lifetime. If you find yourself having questions or concerns about your car service, we suggest taking a closer look at our collection of frequently asked service questions.

Why Should I Have Frequent Service?

As we mentioned above, frequent car service is necessary to keep your car, truck, SUV, or van running strong. Not only does it maintain your vehicle, but it also alerts you to any potential larger issues.

When Do I Know I Need Service?

Your car will provide you with warning signs when it requires service. Whether it be an illuminated warning light on your dash, an odd sound, or a weird feeling when you drive, you'll notice when it's time to have your vehicle serviced. There are some routine maintenance issues that should be performed frequently as well. For these, you should refer to your owner's manual to see what the recommended timeline is.

When Should I Get An Oil Change?

While every vehicle is different, most newer models need an oil change every 6,000 miles. To know for sure, check your owner's manual or talk to a member of our service center near Pocahontas.

How Often Should I Check Fluid Levels?

You should regularly check your fluid levels to ensure that each fluid is full, clean, and not leaking. These fluids include engine oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, steering fluid, wiper fluid, and more.

When Should I Change My Cabin Air Filter?

For most vehicles, your cabin air filter should be changed every 30,000 miles. Of course, this also depends on what type of roads you drive on around Paragould, Walnut Ridge, and beyond. If you feel like you aren't getting clean air through your vents, take a look to see if your air filter should be replaced earlier.

When Should I Have My Brakes Checked?

There are many different red flags that appear when your brakes need to be inspected. If you've noticed that your brakes squeal, your car shudders, or your brake pedal feels spongy when you apply it, it's time to have your brakes inspected. A brake warning light may also appear on your dashboard.

When Do I need A Car Battery Replacement?

Have you had to have your car jumped recently? Do you notice that it takes a while for your truck to startup? If either of these is the case, you'll want to have your battery checked to see if it should be replaced.

When Should I Get My Tires Rotated?

Tires should be rotated at every oil change to ensure that each tire receives even wear. Of course, this also depends on what type of Jonesboro and Trumann roads you're cruising around on and how often you drive.

When Do My Tires Need To Be Replaced?

It's best to frequently inspect your tires to ensure that they're in good shape and aren't damaged. Look at the tread to see if it's deep enough, check the air pressure, and inspect the tire wall. If your tires are damaged, don't hesitate; replace them before they lead to larger issues. Most tires can last from 30,000 to 60,000 miles before any major tread issues, but it's best to check to be sure.
