Motor oil is your engine’s lifeblood. Even if you’ve never changed your own oil before, you probably at least know how to check it, and how often to get it changed. But what about the rest of the fluids that keep your car running smoothly? Transmission fluid, brake fluid, and coolant are just as important, and often just as easy to check at home. So, how often should you check these fluid levels in your car, and how do you know if there’s a problem? Here’s a short guide.
Wheel Alignment After Hitting A Pothole
It’s peak pot hole season here in Dayton – these late winter/early spring freezes and thaws can wreak havoc on the roads, and that spells bad news for drivers.

Fortunately, our service center’s February front end alignment special is still valid through the end of the week! If you hit a pothole and notice that something doesn’t feel right, don’t wait – print out that coupon and bring your vehicle in now!
How to Know Whether Your Car Needs New Tires
No one likes having to pay for an expensive all-new set of tires. However, driving on tires that are too old and worn-out can be a serious safety hazard. Not only does it put you at risk for a blow-out, but old, worn-down tire treads won’t grip the road nearly as well, making snowy winter road conditions more dangerous. So, how often should you change your tires? How do you know whether your car’s tires are too old, or whether they’ve still got some use in them? Here’s a few guidelines for how to know whether your car needs new tires.
